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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 10/7/2013

    " Not the best of the crime genre but certainly readable. There's alot worse out there and better too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylie W | 9/26/2013

    " Crime novels set in Melbourne. Superb. All the books in the Jack Irish series are great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 9/6/2013

    " Another Jack Irish book that I really enjoyed, it's got everything to keep the pages turning and I love the style of writing, I shall be reading more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neil | 9/2/2013

    " Not in the league of Truth or The Broken Shore, and an oversimilarity with elements to the recently read Bad Debts diminished it somewhat, but still a good Melbourne crime novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bev | 5/30/2013

    " This Jack Irish thriller is better than BadDebts "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharron | 11/25/2012

    " This series is definitely not for everyone. Between the unfamiliar Australian slang and the horse racing jargon, it's not always easy to tell what's going on. But Jack Irish is a good character and the story moves along at a fast pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kealan O'ver | 7/30/2012

    " Decent thriller but much like the previous one the unnecessary chapters about horse racing drag it down "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bronl | 12/21/2011

    " Loved it - lots of Australian slang - not for the uninitiated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aditya Kandarpa | 4/1/2011

    " Too much of Australian lingo and locales. Else, a great read :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 3/30/2011

    " Terse, rich thriller : minimalist settings catch Melbourne with a few well-crafted lines. Crackling dialogue, splendid scene-setting, lush complex plot slowly unfolds. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ystyn Francis | 2/5/2011

    " Dammit! I love Peter Temple, and every book I finish means there is one less left for me to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caralee | 10/7/2010

    " I liked this one a little less of all the Jack Irish novels. I prefer the novels of Temple's that have a smaller scope. Still great though, as one would expect of Temple. All the usual themes on which Temple writes so well. "

    " I love good quality grime fiction. Melbourne, current time, burnt law man goes rogue. Thank you Peter Temple. "
