Self-destructive, pigheaded, and over-fond of the bottle, Jack Taylor is a forty-something ex-cop trying to earn a living as a private detective in his native Galway. Taylor has burned a lot of bridges, but he still has a knack for uncovering ugly truths. Set against the rugged backdrop of western Ireland, this crime noir series depicts a country in transition, caught between the certainties of the past and the anxieties of a post-bubble future. Those same strains play out in the life of Jack Taylor, a man seeking to reinvent himself in a community with a long memory and an uneasy attitude towards change.

Based on the bestselling crime fiction by Ken Bruen.

On 28 May 2013, the England and Wales Cricket Board announced that they were suspending Taylor, as well as Hampshire's Glen Querl, because of an illegal bowling action. Both had been reported twice in the previous 12 months for 'displaying elbow extensions in excess of the permitted 15 degrees'. The ban started immediately and ruled Taylor out of the rest of the 2013 season. Consequently, he only played 2nd XI cricket, and only as a batsman. It is hoped that after surgery on his shoulder and coaching he will return for the 2014 season.
