Jack is engaged to find a missing person, only to be later framed for his murder. Jack is quickly caught up in a complex web of powerful vested interests that stretches from his home town of Fitzroy to a remote village in the Philippines.
Once a successful partner in a busy Melbourne criminal law practice, Jack Irish slipped into an alcohol-fueled depression after his wife was murdered. First he lost his cases, then his self-esteem. But after hitting rock bottom, he finally started putting his life together again and has become a part-time investigator. In Jack's first case, "Bad Debts," he uncovers big-time corruption in the police, the church and the state government. In "Black Tide," Jack helps out an old family friend whose son has gone missing - for a good reason. Starring Guy Pearce as Jack Irish, this TV movie series based on the crime novels by Peter Temple offers a collection of suspense-filled whodunits with a charismatic lead and charming secondary characters.
Very low key..and more than a bit hammy...but so nice to watch something relatable on Netflix..as a NZer or Australian..you love the European Crime..but sometimes its nice to watch something a whole lot less slick.
