In Bad Debts, he uncovers corruption. In Black Tide, he helps an old family friend whose son has gone missing. In Dead Point, Jack is commissioned to locate a mysterious red book, but anyone who touches it turns up dead. With Marta Dusseldorp (A Place to Call Home) as journalist Linda Hillier, who sees the honorable man behind the disheveled exterior.
