Jack Irish-gambler, lawyer, finder of missing people-is recovering from a foray into the criminal underworld when he agrees to look for the missing son of Des Connors, the last living link to Jack's father. It's an offer he soon regrets. As Jack begins his search, he discovers that prodigal sons sometimes go missing for a reason. Gary Connors was a man with something to hide, and his trail leads Jack to millionaire and political kingmaker Steven Levesque, a man harboring a deep and deadly secret. Black Tide, the second book in Peter Temple's celebrated Jack Irish series, takes us back into a brilliantly evoked world of pubs, racetracks, and sports-not to mention intrigue, corruption, and violence.

Too disjointed. Too much conversation. Too confusing.

Good read, dark comedic tale of Aussie lawyer, Jack Irish. Learn a few new Aussie words, like Mortein...as in these guys can Mortien anyone.

A dark and enjoyable thriller; likeable but flawed characters, and tautly plotted.
