THE AWARD-WINNING DEBUT NOVEL, AND FIRST JACK IRISH THRILLER, FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BROKEN SHORE AND TRUTH.
‘Put simply, Temple is a master’ John Harvey
‘Great locations, hard-nosed dialogue and a twisting plot . . . super entertainment’ Evening Standard
Jack Irish doesn’t spook too easy. He’s had guns pointed at him too many times – more often since he started hiring himself out as a debt collector – and he saves his nerves for the racetrack. So when he receives a phone message from an ex-client begging for help, he’s inclined to ignore it. It’s not an acquaintance he’s looking to renew. Some-time lawyer, part-time private eye, he has some old memories – and old friends – he’d do better to forget.
But then the caller turns up dead. And Jack has no choice but to take a trip down memory lane – into dangerous territories. There are some old debts that need chasing . . .
