"He was closing in on me. I could hear his running foot-steps over the sound of my heart, of the blood in my ears, of my panting...."
Jack Irish - lawyer, gambler, and people-finder - is hunting down the villains who hijacked the winnings from his latest betting coup when he is hired by a mystery client to find missing barman Robbie Colbourne. But Robbie turns up dead of a drug overdose.
Crime noir in the land down under, Dead Point is the third installment of Peter Temple's compelling and gritty Jack Irish series, now a series of Australian television movies starring Guy Pierce in the title role. In this episode Irish, a person-finder with penchant for gambling, is drawn from his pursuit of gambling debts to look for a missing barman who subsequently turns up dead. Michael Carmen performs the terse style of Temple's thriller with a blend of rugged Aussie machismo and contemplative sophistication, giving unique voices to each of the audiobook's myriad sordid characters. The setting of Melbourne is beautifully evoked, emphasizing the city's seedy underbelly.
"With its array of characters and subplots, the book is an excellent vehicle for narrator Michael Carman, whose effective use of tone permits listeners to keep track of all the characters without losing sight of the story." (AudioFile)
