Jake Doyle’s detective business is booming-mostly because he just can’t resist trouble.
Doyle (Allan Hawco, Love & Savagery) and his ex-cop father, Malachy (Sean McGinley, Single-Handed), have moved their investigation agency into a proper office that happens to be right over a pub. But the new digs haven’t smoothed out any of Jake’s rough edges. Whether he’s pursuing blackmailers, dirty cops, or murderers, Jake keeps running headlong into other people’s fists.
The rest of the clan-Rose (Lynda Boyd), Des (Mark O’Brien), and Malachy’s teenage granddaughter, Tinny (Marthe Bernard)-are finally enjoying some well-deserved happiness. But things are kept off-balance by the return of several shady people from the Doyles’ pasts. Plus, the arrival of an attractive new attorney sends Jake’s always-complicated love life into a tailspin.
In the second season of the award-winning Canadian mystery series, guest stars include Paul Gross (Slings & Arrows), Victor Garber (Argo, Alias), and Nicholas Campbell (DaVinci’s Inquest).
