DI Carlisle continues his investigation and learns from the dead man's friends that he had left them after their bout of drinking to find a prostitute. He interviews several of the local working girls and although they deny ever having seen him, the police get an anonymous tip that he was seen heading toward the flats where they work. Carlisle and Ripley's wife Natalie meet for an evening out and she selects an interesting venue, one where her husband isn't likely to set foot. Ripley's son Danny is called in for a police interview about the murder. Daughter Shyanne meanwhile visits her ex-boyfriend and learns that it was her father who scared him off.
