It could not be bettered!
5 November 2012 | by (Market Harborough, Leics., UK) – See all my reviews

Let me first say I am not Australian, The island I originate from is on a slightly smaller scale, the Isle of Man!

I have read all the Peter Temple books excepting 'White Dog', which I have been unable to get anywhere and was delighted to see that a couple of Jack Irish novels have been transferred to the screen and although I started viewing with trepidation it was soon dispersed as the storyline was spot-on and the acting by all was superb.

The characters are portrayed exactly as I imagined as are the various locations are not far off either, especially the pub!

Let us hope that more of the novels are transposed to the screen with the same exemplary skill of all concerned.

Now I am off to feast on 'Black Tide'.
