About the Author

Peter Temple is widely regarded as one of Australia's finest writers, and his novels have been published in twenty countries. During his lifetime he worked extensively as a journalist and editor, before teaching editing and media studies at a number of universities. His novels, among them the Jack Irish series, Truth, The Broken Shore and An Iron Rose, are celebrated as some of the best crime writing in English.

Temple died in March 2018.


`Gritty Melbourne atmosphere and lots of weather; a suitably alienated, macho anti-hero...and lots of Aussie Rules business. Confirms Temple's rep as the top hard-boiled crime writer on the local scene.' * Courier-Mail *
`Black Tide rips, snorts and crackles with a delicious pace.' * Age *
`Black Tide is certainly compulsive, but Temple's laconic, utterly natural style and his instinctive command of the genre elevates it to a new level well above the standard...paranoia thriller. Temple is the business.' * Australian Book Review *
`Hallelujah, Jack Irish-lawyer, punter, dyed-in-the-wool Fitzroy follower and part-time cabinetmaker-is back...a stunning and welcome return...A fast, funny, fabulous thriller.' * Adelaide Advertiser *
`Temple's ear for dialogue and the vernacular was quite something-and had him compared to the masterful Detroit-native Elmore Leonard.' * NZ Metro *
