"Terrific" —The Australian
"Thrilling murder mystery" —The Sun (U.K.)
Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen
Self-destructive, pigheaded, and overfond of the bottle, Jack Taylor (Iain Glen, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) is a forty-something ex-cop trying to earn a living as a private detective in his native Galway. Taylor has burned a lot of bridges, but he still has a knack for uncovering ugly truths. In his new trade, Taylor finds evil at every turn: the serial murders of young female factory workers, a vicious vigilante group executing summary justice, and a sadistic nun dubbed "Lucifer" by her former charges.
Set against the rugged backdrop of western Ireland, this crime noir series depicts a country in transition, caught between the certainties of the past and the anxieties of a post-bubble future. Those same strains play out in the life of Jack Taylor, a man seeking to reinvent himself in a community with a long memory and an uneasy attitude towards change. Includes three feature-length mysteries: The Guards, The Pikemen, and The Magdalen Martyrs.
