Jack Irish is called upon to find out whether the capricious, unstable artist daughter of a rich elderly knight is as guilty of the murder of her shady lover as she appears. The result is a gently paced, dialogue-based thriller that mixes social commentary and a little satire with a judicious peppering of violence.

Like the other Jack Irish novels, White Dog is steeped in local Melbourne colour, very familiar to north-of-the-Yarra inner suburban Melburnians (as I am). I think I’m just going to have to admit that I don’t really like Peter Temple’s books very much. I’m already ambivalent about the fictional crime genre and Temple’s books, with their abbreviated dialogue and huge range of incidental characters, just confuse me.
