Storyline

Galway Private Investigator JACK TAYLOR is hired by the daughter of a former inmate of the infamous Magdalen Laundries to find the identity of a former nun, known only as LUCIFER, who was notorious for taking pleasure in torturing the girls. Jack has hardly begun his inquiries when he is warned off by local hard man BILL CASSELL. He also uncovers a seeming cover up when files which might have revealed the nun's identity are missing from Church Recored. The case grows more complicated when Jack discovers a connection between the execution style murders of two young men and the nun, Lucifer. Apparently someone is out to avenge themselves on Lucifer by killing those she holds dearest: Her nephews. What seemed like a simple case turns even more complicated for Jack when he accidentally causes the death of Bill Cassell's henchman. Now, not only are the Guards after Jack for his involvement in the henchman's death, but Bill wants a piece of him as well. It's a race against time for Jack to ... Written by Marteinn Thorisson

Pregnant and young
25 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The hard drinking, tough ex cop Jack Taylor (Iain Glen) returns in The Magdalen Martyrs. He is hired by the daughter of a woman who been inmate at the infamous Magdalen Laundry in Galway. Her mother's diary identified a sadistic nun known only as Lucifer who was notorious for her abuse at the pregnant girls staying there.

The investigation is hampered as the records have vanished and Jack is warned to drop the case by a local hoodlum.

As Jack investigations goes on he finds out that Lucifer has a more personal connection with him. His devout mother always had a cold relationship with him, now as she is ill he discovers that she also stayed at the institution while pregnant out of wedlock and also met with ill treatment.

An interesting investigation fleshed out with flashbacks. My word Jack is lucky is with young Kate Noonan. Not only is she good looking, does him favours, a good police officer but also sings in a nightclub.
