This book deserves more attention from American audiences but now that the inimitable Guy Pearce is appearing in movies based on the series I think we will soon be seeing copies of this author's work flying off the shelves just like other much-beloved foreign imports like Steig Larsson and JK Rowling.

We Americans don't think much about our neighbors to the far Southeast but the adventures of Jack Irish are a great introduction into the social and political lives of Melbourne, Australia. The characters made me laugh out loud as well as well as feel the greatest sympathy. I never gave two damns about horse racing before in my life but the author managed to weave a narrative so terse and interesting that I found my heart racing as horse and jockey pushed past their competition and made a dash to the finish line.

I heard about this series of books during a review of the movies based on them. The reviewer assured me that they were worth a read and I was not disappointed.

Excellent thriller set in the "land down under." Interesting characters, well constructed plot, hard to put down. Temple clearly loves to write. The only drawback is that a dictionary of Australian slang would be helpful. But, you can usually figure out the meaning from the context. I've purchased the first book in this series and it is equally. I plan on getting the other two as well. I recommend it to anyone interested in well written crime thrillers.

Peter Templer has created the a private investigator that everyone can identify with and maybe love. Jack Irish has his requisite character flaws as every good fictional detective does, but his are more subtle than "in your face." It took a while to get to the Australian geographical references and some of the nuances of the English tongue from Down-under, but those are small things and not flaws at all.

Totally enjoyable and often engrossing.

Peter Temple can make you crazy. There are times in all of his books where the writing is truly good. Then all of a sudden he introduces a couple of new characters and the plot wanders around for a while. It's very hard to follow the plot in his books. At the same time some of chapters are truly amongst the best I've read this year.

I need a vacation from any more of Temple's books.

I have to admit being prejudiced here. As a Melbourne boy who has lived most of his life away from that city, it is a delight to read about it - albeit the grittier side - through the eyes of Peter Temple's protagonist. At the very least, who cannot enjoy the Fitzroy Youth club - if you are an American think of the Brooklynites who mourned the departure of the Dodgers to LA. Or the horse-racing shenanigans. And Jack's love life and dietary habits bring a smile and a sense of recognition. Most of all, Temple captures the Australian argot so well. I've raced through all the Irish books I can get my hands on - Jack's hair's-breadth escapes get a little unlikely at the denouements but that is a mystery writer's provenance - and can't wait for more. In the meantime The Broken Shore and Truth sustain me.

This one is a genre book--noire detective--and it's a fine example of the best of that kind: fallible, competent central figure (Irish), complex weaving plot, well-structured reveals of significant this and that. He does dialog like Lawrence Block, handles action superbly (keeps focus where it belongs), manages people and relationships smoothly.

Very good but not quite as good as the first. Jack is still brilliant and so are his mates! I did think this was not as Australian as the first book in terms of language. I will be trying number 3!
Like a few of the previous reviewers, I love Temple's writing style, characters and the running dialog Irish has going. I had trouble following the plot - found it a bit over-complicated but it almost didn't matter. Entertaining read.
