Jack Irish: Bad Debts
"A phone message from an ex-client – Danny McKillop (Simon Russell) – doesn’t ring any bells for Jack and sends him searching through old case files, dredging up memories of the bleakest kind. Jack wasn’t at the top of his game when he represented Danny ten years earlier. King hit by scotch on the rocks and the murder of his wife Isabel (Emma Booth), Jack is amazed he managed to drag himself out of bed in the mornings let alone make it to court. Bottom line – Danny did five years for manslaughter and he might have been set up. So when Danny turns up dead, Jack feels like he has failed his ex-client twice over. Keen to set the ledger straight, Jack starts investigating Danny’s death. With his ad-hoc, unorthodox, crumpled style he begins to peel back the layers that connects Danny’s death to dodgy cops, drug dealers, a slimy priest and a blackmailing pornographer. "
