Peter Temple returns

Peter Temple’s Jack Irish novels earned him a big following among lovers of crime fiction. But with his 2005 novel The Broken Shore he reached a whole new readership, found critical acclaim, prestigious awards, and many new fans, at home and abroad.

Now, for everyone, like us, who has been hanging out for Temple’s follow-up to that stellar novel, we are very pleased to announce the wait is almost over. That’s right: this October Text will publish Truth. This gripping sequel to The Broken Shore will not disappoint. It is Temple at the height of his powers.

Truth has been snapped up by publishers in Canada, Germany, the US and UK, and many more will follow. Stay tuned for more details, but in the meantime, why not catch up on Peter Temple’s impressive backlist.
