The Jack Irish Quinella: Bad Debts / Black Tide
By Peter Temple
BAD DEBTS: 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. BLACK TIDE: Jack Irish is recovering from his last foray into the criminal underworld when he agrees to look for the missing son of Des Connors, the last living link to Jack’s father. It’s an offer he soon regrets, as he discovers that prodigal sons often go missing for a reason, and they always have something to hide. The second book in Peter Temple’s Jack Irish series, Black Tide takes us back into a brilliantly evoked world of pubs, racetracks, and sports – not to mention intrigue, corruption, and violence.
