Product Description


“The joint U.S. release of Bad Debts and Black Tide, the first two entries in his series starring burned-out Melbourne solicitor Jack Irish, make for an excellent introduction to Temple’s clever, irresistibly entertaining thrillers.”
Time Out New York

Praise for Peter Temple:
“Hallelujah. Jack Irish is back. . . . A fast, funny, fabulous thriller.”
Adelaide Advertiser

“This is a highly complex and magnificently crafted thriller from a top-drawer practitioner. To my mind Temple has the magic touch: He is deft, dry, sharp-eyed, inventive.”
Australian Book Review

“Temple is as dark and mean, as cool and as mesmerizing, as any James Ellroy or Elmore Leonard with whom you might kill the small or sad hours.”
The Age

“. . .reminiscent of Robert Ludlum or Tom Clancy. . . . The author adroitly weaves the story together and neatly ties up all loose ends so readers feel a sense of satisfaction when the tale concludes.”
Omaha Pulp
