Description - Black Tide: Jack Irish Tie In by Peter Temple

Black Tide is the second of Peter Temple's Jack Irish thrillers and was first published in 1999. Jack Irish - lawyer, gambler, part-time cabinetmaker, finder of missing people - is recovering from a foray into the criminal underworld when he agrees to look for the son of an old workmate of his father's. It's an offer he soon has cause to regret, as the trail of Gary Connors leads him into the world of Steven Levesque, millionaire and political kingmaker. The more Jack learns about Levesque's powerful corporation, the more convinced he becomes that at its heart lies a secret. What he's destined to find out is just how deadly that secret is... Black Tide has been made into a tele-movie starring Guy Pearce as Jack Irish and will be screened on the ABC in August 2012.
