Black Tide is the second of Peter Temple's Jack Irish thrillers and was first published in 1999.

Jack Irish—lawyer, gambler, part-time cabinetmaker, finder of missing people—is recovering from a foray into the criminal underworld when he agrees to look for the son of an old workmate of his father's.

It's an offer he soon has cause to regret, as the trail of Gary Connors leads him into the world of Steven Levesque, millionaire and political kingmaker. The more Jack learns about Levesque's powerful corporation, the more convinced he becomes that at its heart lies a secret. What he's destined to find out is just how deadly that secret is...

Black Tide has been made into a tele-movie starring Guy Pearce as Jack Irish and will be screened on the ABC in August 2012.

'Hallelujah, Jack Irish - lawyer, punter, dyed-in-the-wool Fitzroy follower and part-time cabinetmaker - is back...a stunning and welcome return...A fast, funny, fabulous thriller.' * Adelaide Advertiser * 'Black Tide is certainly compulsive, but Temple's laconic, utterly natural style and his instinctive command of the genre elevates it to a new level well above the standard...paranoia thriller. Temple is the business.' * Australian Book Review * 'Black Tide rips, snorts and crackles with a delicious pace.' * Age * 'Gritty Melbourne atmosphere and lots of weather; a suitably alienated , macho anti-hero; a satisfying...mystery; and lots of Aussie Rules business. Confirms Temple's rep as the top hard-boiled crime writer on the local scene.' * Courier-Mail *
