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.

Wish Jack Irish were real
20 February 2017 | by maggiemasseySee all my reviews

Jack and his friends are up to no good again. The last woman in his life is off to follow a story in the Phillipines, Jack is alone again and trouble always finds Jack. If it is no his horse friends, then it's his legal friends, if not them then it is the woman or women in his life ,and that usually means Jack is in for pain and broken bones.Then there are always his friends at the pub to help him find the answers and hide him from those that want to kill him or through him in jail. This season is more painful then the others because there is a bigger cross over story then before. From the jungles of the Phillipines and the story being covered there the murders and mysteries of where is " Tina" and "who and why people are being killed" Also who took Jacks money after putting it into his account. Will Jack ever find the answers before he is killed himself?
