9781489089366: Black Tide: A Jack Irish Thriller (Jack Irish Series)

Jack Irish has no shortage of friends. Jockeys and journos, lawyers and standover men, people in nameless occupations who aren’t in the phone book. These days, though, the only family he sees are Irish men in faded football team photographs on the pub wall.

So when Des Connors, the last link to his father, calls to ask for help in the matter of a missing son, Jack is happy to lend a hand.

But sometimes prodigal sons go missing for a reason. As Jack begins to dig, he discovers that Gary Connors was a man with something to hide.

And his friends are people with darker and more deadly secrets.

About the Author:

Peter Temple (born 1946 in South Africa) is an Australian crime fiction writer. Formerly a journalist and journalism lecturer, he played a significant role in establishing the professional editing course at RMIT, Melbourne. Temple turned to fiction writing in the 1990s. His Jack Irish novels (Bad Debts, Black Tide, Dead Point, and White Dog) are set in Melbourne, Australia, and feature an unusual lawyer-gambler protagonist. In 2012, the Australian ABC Television and the German ZDF produced the first two as feature-length films with Guy Pearce in the title role under the series title Jack Irish. Temple has also written three stand-alone novels: An Iron Rose, Shooting Star, In the Evil Day (Identity Theory in the US), as well as The Broken Shore and its semi-sequel, Truth. In 2010, Peter Temple won the Miles Franklin Award for his novel Truth.

Review:

'The Irish films make a good introduction to the work of Peter Temple, who's just a terrific writer ― sharp, funny and ambitious.' NPR - Fresh Air

"Temple's characters are complex, his plots complicated, his world smudged if not outright dirty - that is, his books are entirely credible." -HeadButler.com

"Peter Temple? Only one of the world's better novelists. But unknown to most American readers largely because he lives in Australia." -HeadButler.com
