Storyline

A priest who had just returned from 20 years of working overseas is found beheaded in his church. Father Malachy confesses to Jack that now he himself fears for his life and reveals a tragic story about the murdered priest. The latter had committed a terrible deed before being moved overseas - Father Malachy suspects an act of revenge. After the discovery of another dead body the Guards think they found the priest-murderer. But for Jack and Cody too many questions remain unanswered to close the case. During their investigations they find more and more well-protected secrets from the history of the church. Another confession leads them to a different trace... Written by Molten Rock Media

Excellent Sophisticated Plot
29 September 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

When a priest is beheaded as he faces the altar, Jack becomes involved. This leads to an investigation of a pedophile and a connection between two altar boys that were abused. There are multiple levels that get revealed and great danger. Jack is his usually manipulative self, at odds with Cody, but bringing danger to all. This shows how complex this all can be. The intense pain caused by the act of this priest has left a cesspool that the victims must maneuver through. There is potential incest and further evils at play here. I'm surprised that there were only nine episodes made of this series.
