RAKE Series 3

  • One might be forgiven for thinking prison is as low as things can sink for Criminal Barrister Cleaver Greene. But when we rejoin our silver-tongued hero things are heading south again as he emerges a legal pariah. This series shows Cleaver fighting to re-establish himself, and despite himself. Before long, there is corruption at corporate and government levels; a faux heist, a faux cancer and two very real Royal Commissions. And, of course, the constant fear Greene will mess up the whole thing royally.
