However, his fortunes take a turn for the worse when he discovers the dead body of a young man on the premises. Keen to get the case cleared up, Ripley co-operates with the investigating police officer, DI Peter Carlisle. But Carlisle takes a dislike to Ripley, which makes him all the more determined to prove the businessman is the culprit.
