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 international screen star Guy Pearce (Memento, Mildred Pierce) as Jack Irish, this TV movie cycle based on the crime novels by Peter Temple offers a collection of suspense-filled whodunits with a charismatic lead and charming secondary characters.
