Incapable of constancy as a father and husband, damaged as a son, his life is his work.

Now, over a few sweltering summer days, as fires burn across the state and his superiors and colleagues scheme and jostle, the girl's murder will collide with what seems on the surface to be another brutal gangland slaying and expose the darkness in the city's soul.

Then check out the first of his Jack Irish thrillers, Bad Debts.
