Des Connors has got problems with his son. Not only has he lent him all his savings, now he's missing. And Des isn't just worried for his money.
Jack Irish hasn't got family problems; he hasn't got any family at all. So when Des, an old friend of his father, asks for a favour, Jack's eager to oblige.
But it turns out young Gary Connors made a few friends that he would have been better without. And now Jack's facing the question: did he disappear of his own accord, or did one of those new friends lend a hand...?

If you discovered Peter Temple via the wonderful Broken Shore, be prepared for something different here. There is the same deft conjuring of atmosphere (not to mention the astringent characterisation) that was such an important part of Temple’s award-winning novel) but the semi-detached copper of that book is here replaced by a protagonist who is more in the long line of detectives that stretch back Chandler's Philip Marlowe. So a different Peter Temple from that we might be used to, but nonetheless beguiling for all that. --Barry Forshaw
