THE THRILLING FOURTH JACK IRISH NOVEL, FROM THE FIVE-TIME NED KELLY WINNER AND SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE BROKEN SHORE AND TRUTH.

‘Peter Temple’s fourth Jack Irish thriller is like slipping into deliciously dangerous quicksand . . . demands to be read in one sitting’ Herald Sun


Her name was Sarah Longmore and she was charged with murdering her former lover.

When Jack Irish is asked to look into Sarah Longmore’s defence, he’s more than happy to oblige. After all, whenever somebody seems as guilty as Sarah does, it’s usually for a good reason.

But her case will prove far from straightforward, and Jack’s investigation far from swift and painless.


Loved the Jack Irish thrillers and now craving more Peter Temple? Then you now need to read his first standalone novel, An Iron Rose . . .
