Footy, horseracing, corruption, murder and quality cabinetmaking – welcome to the world of Peter Temple's iconic literary character Jack Irish.
Life is hard enough for Jack – his beloved football club has moved interstate, the odds of his latest plunge at the track seem too long and he’s still cooking for one. So a phone message from ex-client Danny McKillop (Simon Russell) doesn’t ring any bells. When Danny turns up dead Jack must walk back into a dark and dangerous past.
Bad Debts, the first of the Jack Irish telemovies, features Guy Pearce, Marta Dusseldorp, Aaron Pedersen, Roy Billing, Colin Friels, Steve Bisley and Shane as Barry Tregear.
