From the award-winning author of The Broken Shore.
Meet Jack Irish, criminal lawyer, debt collector, football lover, turf watcher, trainee cabinetmaker, and the best Australian crime character we've seen in years.
When Jack receives a puzzling message from a jailed ex-client, he's too deep in misery over Fitzroy's latest loss to take much notice. Next thing Jack knows, the ex-client's dead and he's been drawn into a life-threatening investigation involving high-level corruption, dark sexual secrets, shonky property deals and murder. With hitmen after him, shady ex-policeman at every turn and the body count rising, Jack needs to find out what's going on - and fast.
"Melbourne, Australia's, multifaceted Jack Irish is back - and more feisty than ever. When he misses a meeting with Danny McKillop, who is then killed, Jack feels guilty and strives to hunt down the murderer, whatever the cost. Narrator Marco Chiappi handles the Aussie accents, snippets of subtle humour, and regional vocabulary with aplomb. He also moves effortlessly from depicting crime scenes to describing fine woodworking techniques (a hobby of Jack's) to voicing a spirited horse-racing announcer as Jack backs an unexpected winner. The fast-paced story is timely as those with a social conscience battle ruthless land developers - all the while attempting to tell the heroes from the villains." (AudioFile Magazine)
