Jack Barrett is the type of guy no one calls Jack. He works for a group of businessmen known as "The Gentlemen" who operate within the fertile realm of the Sydney Underworld. Stand over tactics, prostitution, illegal gambling, creative importation - you name it, "The Gentlemen" are into it. And Barrett enforces it for them. Old school muscle for hire. Now 53 years old, he's tired of having to throw away perfectly good suits because you can't dry-clean the blood off. No surprise that when he shuts his eyes at night, all he sees is a small fishing village, a run-about and a long line. To get there, he needs to get out. Out of Sydney. Out of the game, which is, of course, easier said than done. The ultimatum - one final job as a gesture of good will. Then he can go. Enter Billie Finn, a young university student doing her thesis on the fallout from the Wood Royal Commission on Organized Crime, asking the kind of questions that make gangsters a little nervous. So now we have a final job.
