AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jack Irish is a part-time lawyer, mug punter and finder of people who'd rather remain lost. When a high profile Judge, Justice Loder commissions him to locate a mysterious red book, Jack is thrown into a world of sexy club owners, dodgy drug dealers, blackmailers, and unhinged killers. Anyone who touches the red book turns up dead. Jack should follow his instinct and back away — if only the judge wasn't family. Instead he finds himself chasing the red book in a dangerous race to a remote coastal property with an ominous name: Dead Point.' (Source:
