Lazy Sunday Service

After last week mourning the death of Philip Kerr, this week it's Peter Temple - who actually died before Kerr, on the 8th March. I've read all nine of Temple's novels, first discovering him through his Jack Irish series. The books were often published in this part of the world years after release in Australia, an issue that still drives me nuts. The only two reviews I have on the blog are White Dog and Truth as I'd read all the other before I started posting reviews. In his honour I've been watching Bad Debts, one of the two feature-length television adaptations featuring Guy Pearce as Jack Irish.

My posts this week

Oh. missed the news of Peter Temple's death. Picked 'The Broken Shore' up as a punt in 2014 and was immediately hooked. Bought everything else I could find.
