In Thanks For Everything noted financier Peter Hughes disappears, it’s initially thought that he might be in France with another woman (despite being married Hughes has something of a reputation as a womaniser). As Jim begins his investigations it quickly becomes apparent that it’s much more complicated than that.
Of course we the audience know that he may very well be dead given that in the opening scenes we see the dumping of a body. As the investigation continues though Jim discovers that Hughes had recently sold a house for £200,000 and more than likely misappropriated another £70,000. Meanwhile one of his colleagues thinks he may have embezzled as much as two million pounds from his various companies.
When Henri Dupont turns up looking for help with his own missing persons case it’s clear the two men are one and the same.
There are more fun and games for Jim and Susan too, he has forgotten her birthday and lets Charlie arrange a dinner for himself and Susan at the best restaurant on the island, The Cock Door, however he hasn’t told her that Charlie and Peggy will be joining them and that his prime motivation is to see Mrs Hughes (who is a regular at the restaurant) letting her hair down.
