Jack Carter is the best private detective in Montreal. He is a former
officer, divorced from the city's forensic pathologist and father of a

restaurant owner, and by an ex-colleague still in the police force. A
cop hates him and is a constant source of trouble. Like James Bond, he

The first year of the show had only four stories, each one developed over
two episodes - eight episodes in total. The cases were:
- The disappearance of a businessman, possibly linked to a woman's body

- A tiger is stolen from the zoo.
- A body is stolen from the cemetery.
- A scientist is chased by mysterious men that are after his secret

manages quite well a balance between the serious and the funny. It
take itself too seriously. Good production values for a Canadian series,
stylish direction, likable cast, all contribute to make it a very
show. I hope it comes back for a second year.
