Series: Jack Irish Thriller (Book 1). Paperback: 314 pages. This is my first read by Peter Temple, and I am infatuated with Jack Irish. Jack is an urbane self employed solicitor and barrister, however he tends to gravitate toward clients who have difficulty being good citizens. Women are very attracted to him, and vise versa.

In addition, there are three movies that precede the series, also starring Guy Pearce, that are based on the novels. There are only four Jack Irish novels, which is too few for sure, but unfortunately, Peter Temple passed away in 2018. I have not seen the movies yet because I decided to read the books first. I am watching the first season of the series, and it is terrific so far.

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. An utterly compelling and topical crime tale, Bad Debts has everything – humour, action, suspense, and an unforgettable cast of characters. ‘One of the world’s most respected literary crime novelists…’ ― The Independent

I have read three of Temple's books in a row. They are very well written, entertaining, have good plots and character development. Lots of characters, almost to the point that I wished I had written them down as the appeared. Occasionally, the Australian slang will be a little confusing, but everything else about his books is so good that it's easy to overlook this, and lots of time it adds to the allure of Australia (which is a super place!). I heartily recommend Temple's books.

A noir novel with all the traditional elements, a multi-faceted, flawed but likable main character with a tragic backstory, a borderline-criminal best friend, a romantic interest with her own agenda and a bit of a mercenary heart, a humorous, ragtag collection of misfits and criminals, the obligatory comic relief, and a well defined sense of place. I caught the first movie and immediately bought the book and have been making my way through the series over the past few weeks. The plot lines are a little convoluted but that's a minor flaw here. Great books!

I enjoyed this book from start to finish. Spooner's life is very much like Pete Dexter's so I think that made even the craziest parts feel real. Be ready for lots of humor and some insights into human development. The influence of one very fine step-father is a lesson for all of us. Spooner is quite a man's man and presented a real challenge for the woman he married, so I'd like to know more about how she managed. Next book might be Wife of Spooner,

This book is a must-read. I heard about it through NPR. They were talking about the fact that they have already made three movies starring Guy Pearce based on these books. In addition the reviewer said the books were fascinating. He was not wrong.

I was lucky because this was the first book I read on my new Kindle Paperwhite. The best part of this was that I was able to look up the occasionally strange Australian words like 'pommy' (British person) or 'ute' (SUV). I also liked the horse racing aspect. I'm no fan of that sport but the author does a good job of relating why exactly people are so obsessed with 'the ponies.'

Buy this book!

Once I got the hang of the Australian slang, are ignored it, I found the story interesting, but the main character was too much like some other bigger than life leads for my taste. The author tried to tone him down with a flaw here and there, but I didn't buy it, and I don't think most readers will. Who knows... Maybe I wasn't in a receptive mood when I read it. I'm on the fence with this one. If I had to recommend a good believable well fleshed out protagonist, I'd pick Donna Leon's, Brunetti, of Henning Mankell's, Wallander, perhaps, Andrea Camilleri's Montalbano...But that's me.

This is my first read by Peter Temple, and I am infatuated with Jack Irish. Jack is an urbane self employed solicitor and barrister, however he tends to gravitate toward clients who have difficulty being good citizens. Women are very attracted to him, and vise versa. His working world is gritty, and the verbal communications reflect the grime. Jack in undaunted, and capable of defending himself, The story line is not particularly great, but it is interesting with a weaving of suspense and humor.
I kept feeling interrupted by trying to figure out what the local slang meant. Not in online dictionaries or apps. So I started ignoring that and picked up the pace a bit. I enjoy this genre of the lone wolf fixer, and Jack Irish fits the bill pretty well. This book has an exciting pace to the finish line and he does meet a woman along the way. It's not Lee Child or Vince Flynn, but who is?
