Jack Irish is recovering from his last foray into the criminal underworld when he agrees to look for the missing son of Des Connors, the last living link to Jack’s father. It’s an offer he soon regrets, as he discovers that prodigal sons often go missing for a reason, and they always have something to hide. The second book in Peter Temple’s Jack Irish series, Black Tide takes us back into a brilliantly evoked world of pubs, racetracks, and sports – not to mention intrigue, corruption, and violence.
