Introducing Australia's most acclaimed crime-thriller writer to North American audiences with his first two books in his award-winning Jack Irish series.

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. When Danny turns up dead, Jack is forced to take a walk back into the dark and dangerous past.

With suspenseful prose and black humor, Peter Temple builds an unforgettable character in Jack Irish and brings the reader on a journey that is as intelligent as it is exciting.

Really enjoyed this book a bit confusing for the first quarter and then became a very good read.

Good read. Lots of new Aussie words for me and dark Aussie humor. Loved it.

An OK read - finished it more out of a sense of duty that feeling compelled to by the story. Interesting Australian slang!
