At my 'no longer head of department' gig on Friday I was very kindly given some Amazon vouchers. The first item in the basket was Jack Irish, the TV adaptation of two of Peter Temple's novels - Bad Debts and Black Tide. I'm really looking forward to watching these as the novels were terrific and Guy Pearce is a brilliant actor, so it should be a winning combination. It was followed by Peter Quinn's Hour of the Cat and Malcolm Mackay's The Necessary Death of Lewis Winter. Now I'm pondering and I'm about to work my way through some review sites to see what else should join them.
