About the Author
Peter Temple (born 1946 in South Africa) is an Australian crime fiction writer. Formerly a journalist and journalism lecturer, he played a significant role in establishing the professional editing course at RMIT, Melbourne. Temple turned to fiction writing in the 1990s. His Jack Irish novels (Bad Debts, Black Tide, Dead Point, and White Dog) are set in Melbourne, Australia, and feature an unusual lawyer-gambler protagonist. In 2012, the Australian ABC Television and the German ZDF produced the first two as feature-length films with Guy Pearce in the title role under the series title Jack Irish. Temple has also written three stand-alone novels: An Iron Rose, Shooting Star, In the Evil Day (Identity Theory in the US), as well as The Broken Shore and its semi-sequel, Truth. In 2010, Peter Temple won the Miles Franklin Award for his novel Truth.
