Description - An Iron Rose: Text Classics by Peter Temple

Introduced by Les Carlyon I looked up. The rope was tied to a rolled steel joist about two metres above the truck cab. Ned had climbed up on to the cab roof, tied the rope to the joist, slid it along. Tied a slipknot around his neck. And stepped off the cab roof. Peter Temple is one of the world's great crime writers. In this enthralling novel, he tells the story of a man who has left a dangerous job to make a new life in the country. But the death of his father's best friend plunges him back into a world of violence and deceit. www.textclassics.com.au
