For Jake Doyle, dodging bullets is a lot less dangerous than his personal life. Jake (Allan Hawco, Love & Savagery) and his ex-cop father, Malachy (Sean McGinley, Single-Handed), run a Newfoundland detective agency. Their rugged seaside town never lacks for intriguing cases, from cheating spouses to robberies, arson, and even murder. Father and son have completely different ways of handling things, and that turns up the heat on their suspects-not to mention their tight-knit family. But the real fireworks stem from Jake's roguish ways. Whether it's an ex-wife (Rachel Wilson, Total Drama) he can't shake or the hot new cop (Krystin Pellerin, The Tudors) he works with, Jake Doyle just can't stop breaking the rules.
