Jack Taylor is a former cop turned private investigator with little to show for his time in the Irish Guards. Few of his former colleagues have any regard for Taylor. The exception is his friend Garda Kate Noonan, though even she has to walk a fine line. Six months sober, Taylor takes on cases with the help of his young assistant, Cody, even while he worries about his elderly mother. Try as he might, the ex-cop from Galway finds that in his hometown, his past is always just a mistake away.

Jack Taylor is a deceptive murder/mystery series set in the priest-ridden backwater of Galway. Yes, we have the expected thuggish havoc of shootings, knifings, broken bottle slashing. There's the corruption, sleaze, drug dealing, alcohol binges, sexual violence. But the aforementioned mayhem is not engineered intentionally to gratuitously pander to the viewer. After three or four episodes it becomes evident that none of this spins off of random cases. Coherency, front and center, resolves itself through linkage to Jack's upbringing: who his parents were, the frictional home life, what his straightjacket schooling imbued, limited opportunity to escape the neighborhood at large. The repressive social atmosphere orchestrated by Dark Age religious zealots, who enforced control through the institutions they spawned, produced criminality that could not be indefinitely covered up or flushed away. Latent payback is repressed no more. Jack as PI serially encounters the blowback.
