Fishpriest

5.0/5

Critic Rating

The Bronx, 1993. Crack is king. Crime is rampant. Tommy “Fishpriest” Barth - nicknamed after his weapon of choice, a club that’s meant to kill fish but works on people just fine - sees the chaos firsthand at Concourse Bail Bonds. Today, Tommy’s a bounty hunter, but he was a cop up until two years ago, when an all-consuming undercover operation to bust one of the most notorious crime syndicates the city's ever seen - the Jamaican Shower Posse - destroyed his marriage, drove him to addiction, and cost him his badge. Tommy thought he’d banished the JSP from the Bronx forever. But with the crack epidemic in full swing, they’re back - and they’re stronger. When Tommy’s ex-partner offers him a shot at redemption, he chooses to risk everything he’s rebuilt. Will he survive this time? Ethan Hawke (Training Day) stars in this dark, thrilling, character-driven crime drama. This cinematic Audible Original is presented in eight-episodes with intense, wall-to-wall sound design and grim and gritty performances at a fever-pitch.
