Jerry Foxby (Iain Batchelor), a playboy aristocrat who mysteriously vanished in the 90s, becomes of interest to Jane (Claire Goose).
Jerry disappeared after telling the police he'd killed a prostitute on his yacht - and now his younger brother, Oliver (Chris Larkin), would like his death to be certified so that he can claim the family title.
When Jane receives a tip-off from Helen Boyd, who claims to be the dead prostitute, it gets her attention. Taking the new lead to Davey he dismisses it as just another crackpot theory to add to the pile.
Jane won't let it go and looks for help elsewhere. She asks The Foxbys' long-serving housekeeper Peggy (Sandra Voe), to dish the dirt on the family. Despite being ever loyal, she gives Jane the feeling she knows more than she's letting on. When Helen is found dead and the evidence points back to The Foxbys, Davey starts taking Jane seriously - but is he too late to take his place in the history books as the one that caught Jerry Foxby?
