The Screen Guide

Jack's back in this six-part thriller which takes us from the cultural atoll of Fitzroy to the bustling city of Manila, where Jack's on-again-off-again lover Linda Hillier (Marta Dusseldorp) has landed a job as a foreign correspondent. In the wake of Linda's departure, Jack is engaged to track down a missing man, Wayne Dilthey (Dan Hamill), but the investigation goes pear-shaped when his quarry is killed before his eyes. The client becomes an enigma and the job is revealed to be an elaborate set up - one that now has Jack prime suspect for murder.
