‘Brothers and sisters in crime, worship at the Temple.’
– The Australian

‘Temple is as dark and as mean, as cool and as mesmerising, as any James Ellroy or Elmore Leonard.’
– The Age

A wonderful novel about politics and power, about black/white
relations, about honour and decency in a corrupt world.

and thrilling, you will not read a more spellbinding book this year.
