Summary

Meet Jack Irish: some-time lawyer, part-time private eye, spare-time cabinet maker and full-time lover of strong coffee, swift horses, and spirited women.

A phone message from ex-client Danny McKillop doesn't ring any bells for Jack ¿ 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 race course seem far too long, and he's still cooking for one. But when Danny turns up dead, Jack is forced to take a walk back into his dark and dangerous past.

"Great locations, hard-nosed dialogue, and a twisting plot combine to create superb entertainment." (Evening Standard)
"This was my first encounter with the multi-prize-winning Australian writer Peter Temple, and the experience has left me hot on the trail of his earlier books." (Guardian)
