Read full description of the books:
Peter Temple novels are givens: they will be tightly written, there will be a little bit of sex that falls into the realm of adult themes or soft porn, there will be clever dialogue. Jack Irish novels have the added sparkle of digs at Melbourne, and soft side swipes at other cities, and we will learn a bit more about horse racing, and AFL.
The usual formulae are followed with one to two cases being investigated that may or may not become related. They will become personal in some way and we learn a bit more of the character and personal history of our hero/ narrator. Being in the 1st person has the draw back that regardless of how many guns there are being waved about, our hero will live to tell the tale. The upside are the quips from Irish: his repartee always has been giggling or snorting – which is an attractive look on flights (or so I believe).
The biggest weakpoint was the title. We learn about its significance in the last 50 pages, but I think another title was more deserving. I kept saying: Is this it??!! Don’t let that deter you, this book is worthy of a read on either a summer beach, or locked in a cosy room during a miserable day.
