The British debut of Peter Temple's series character, Jack Irish - some-time lawyer, part-time cabinet maker, full-time lover of strong coffee, swift horses and spirited women, and three-time winner of Australia's best crime novel of the year.
Melbourne in winter. Rain. Wind. Pubs. Beer. Sex. Corruption. Murder. A phone message from ex-client Danny McKillop doesn't ring any bells for Jack Irish. Life is hard enough without having to dredge up old problems: his beloved football team continues to lose, the odds on his latest plunge at the track seem far too long and he's still cooking for one. But then Danny turns up dead and Jack has to take a walk back into the dark and dangerous past.
'A writer who assuredly takes the reader to places they have never been before' Michael Connelly. 'Put simply, Temple is a master' John Harvey.
