Storyline

A priest who had just returned from 20 years of working overseas is found beheaded in his church. Father Malachy confesses to Jack that now he himself fears for his life and reveals a tragic story about the murdered priest. The latter had committed a terrible deed before being moved overseas - Father Malachy suspects an act of revenge. After the discovery of another dead body the Guards think they found the priest-murderer. But for Jack and Cody too many questions remain unanswered to close the case. During their investigations they find more and more well-protected secrets from the history of the church. Another confession leads them to a different trace... Written by Molten Rock Media

Priest
9 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In Priest, Iain Glen's Jack Taylor comes to the help of the Father Malachy who looked after his dying mother. He has received threats and another priest has been found murdered with his head decapitated.

Jack enters a world of child abuse and that consequences of the abuse. The murdered priest was vile, a child abuser and a rapist. Other people are getting killed and there is a land developer and his clingy sister who seems to be dictating things and getting in Jack's way.

No doubt that some of the writing is rather clunky, it cannot go unnoticed that despite being an alpha male, the hard drinking, hard living but skint Jack seems to be a magnet in attracting female attention.

Still the mystery remains fairly strong and the story of child abuse in the priesthood in Ireland is topical.
