Bad Debts Paperback

Part of the A Jack Irish Thriller series



THE AWARD-WINNING DEBUT NOVEL, AND FIRST JACK IRISH THRILLER, FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BROKEN SHORE AND TRUTH. 'Put simply, Temple is a master' John Harvey 'Great locations, hard-nosed dialogue and a twisting plot ...super entertainment' Evening Standard Jack Irish doesn't spook too easy.

He's had guns pointed at him too many times - more often since he started hiring himself out as a debt collector - and he saves his nerves for the racetrack.

So when he receives a phone message from an ex-client begging for help, he's inclined to ignore it.

It's not an acquaintance he's looking to renew. Some-time lawyer, part-time private eye, he has some old memories - and old friends - he'd do better to forget.

But then the caller turns up dead. And Jack has no choice but to take a trip down memory lane - into dangerous territories.

There are some old debts that need chasing ...Loved Bad Debts?

Then read the second novel in the Jack Irish series, Black Tide.
