Galway Private Investigator JACK TAYLOR is hired by the daughter of a former inmate of the infamous Magdalen Laundries to find the identity of a former nun, known only as LUCIFER, who was notorious for taking pleasure in torturing the girls. Jack has hardly begun his inquiries when he is warned off by local hard man BILL CASSELL. He also uncovers a seeming cover up when files which might have revealed the nun's identity are missing from Church Recored. The case grows more complicated when Jack discovers a connection between the execution style murders of two young men and the nun, Lucifer. Apparently someone is out to avenge themselves on Lucifer by killing those she holds dearest: Her nephews. What seemed like a simple case turns even more complicated for Jack when he accidentally causes the death of Bill Cassell's henchman. Now, not only are the Guards after Jack for his involvement in the henchman's death, but Bill wants a piece of him as well. It's a race against time for Jack to ...Written by

Evil at a Girl's Home
We get a snapshot of Jack's past in this episode. His estrangement from his mother is at the center. There seems to be genuine hatred between them, but it's hard to tell what is the cause. Most of the story revolves around the Magdalen Home where "wayward" girls were kept. They were abused by a nun whom they referred to as "Lucifer." Jack is asked by a woman to investigate the murder for hire killing of her teenage son. There seems no reason for it. Jack knows the family and they can't get their arms around the death. It gets even worse. A gangland type seems at the center. He is dying and still is full of vengeance and hatred. Jack is known to him and is becoming a threat. But why? Once again, Taylor is treated as a person of interest. There are a series of flashbacks that explain the events at the girl's home and the relationship becomes quite complicated.
