LoveReading View on Bad Debts

This renowned Australian author’s introduction into this country was The Broken Shore, a powerful novel of injustice.  This is very different.  It is the beginning of a series featuring a great character, Jack Irish, an ex-lawyer turned part-time cabinet maker, horse racing fanatic and busy investigator, i.e. a complex fellow.

Similar this month: Michael Walters.
Comparison: Mark Billingham, John Harvey, Peter James.

Bad Debts Synopsis

A phone message from ex-client Danny McKillop doesn't ring any bells for Jack Irish. Life is hard enough without having to dredge up old problems. But then Danny turns up dead and Jack has to take a walk back into the dark and dangerous past.
