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-policemen at every turn, and the body count rising, Jack needs to find out what's going on - and fast.

Quality Crime Fiction
Jack Irish is a great character and great to read a book set in Australia
It is like an Australian version of the Prey series by John Sandford.
First time for Chiappi, really enjoyed his performance. Easy to follow characters.
Book built nicely without any silly or over the top twists
Peter Temple is a great author - check out the Broken Shore, one of my all time favourites
The narrator made me love listening
The characters and the narrator's timing, timbre and accent.
more complex, less obvious plot; the reviewers that say it was disjointed confuse me -- yes it moved from different settings and characters but it was too obvious for me. Redeemed again by the read aloud and the characters.
Horses, houses and debts.
