    Ralph Gorse, a charmer in every sense of the word, is handsome, suave and stylish. It soon becomes clear however, that there is a much darker side to his character: that of a conman, seducer and murderer.

    Whilst staying in Reading he seduces Joan Plumleigh-Bruce, much to the disgust of her friend Mr Stimpson, and succeeds in swindling a great deal of money from her. Running off to Brighton with the money, he soon wastes it all and has to get his old job back working in a car showroom. The owner`s daughter, Pamela falls for him and on discovering she is pregnant, Gorse is forced to marry.

    After an insurance scam goes terribly wrong, Gorse flits again, to try and start a new life with a false identity. With Mr Stimpson catching up with him, will Gorse succeed or will he finally get his comeuppance?
