Book Description

4 July 2013 A Jack Irish Thriller (Book 2)

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...?

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Irish a one hundred per cent joy 30 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There's a problem with this sort of book insofar as I want to read it to get to the end, but invariably miss half the ins and outs and hidden clues. Which has me feeling stupid when I don't fully understand the ending. Not that it matters - I will undoubtedly re-read it, and in the meantime, the dialogue and Jack Irish himself are a one hundred per cent joy.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book of two halves 21 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
I approached this book with a great deal of anticipation borne out of my enthusiasm for the two Jack Irish TV films shown recently.In my experience the books are generally so much better than the films. Unfortunately not so in this case.

True we get the sparkling and witty dialogue hence my three star rating but whereas in the films the colourful characters involved with the horses and the motley crew hanging out in the bar constantly reminiscing and bickering about the past glories of their football team added colour, However I found them a serious diversion in the book which effectively slowed down the narrative pace of the core plot. Added to that there was a hugely convoluted plot involving a complex corporate ownership and the book never really gathered any pace or tension till the second half of the book when the author finally focussed solely on the main storyline.

I confess I bought this book in a charity shop. I always intended to start reading them and it was purely fortuitous that I came across this. I will certainly give Jack Irish a second chance and buy "Bad Debts". The test for me as to whether I really rate them is whether I want to keep them in my collection and progress through the series or will I recycle them both back to the charity shop. Purely on the basis of "Black Tide" its destination charity shop but I am really hoping "Bad Debts" will save it.

A real page turner, Jack Irish stars once again. A genuine, determined investigator whom you keep willing on to bring the miscreants to justice, without fear or favour.
