Synopsis

On 8 December 2014, the body of bankrupt property tycoon Scot Young was found impaled on the railings below his ?3-million penthouse apartment. The police felt his death was not suspicious, but a Russian radio station asked: 'Did he jump or was he pushed?' Soon everyone was wondering.For six years, Young had been fighting an acrimonious divorce case. His wife accused him of hiding his vast wealth offshore; he claimed that he had lost it all in an ill judged Moscow property deal, yet opted for jail rather than provide evidence. And although he claimed to have debts of over ?27 million, he was still seen driving a Ferrari and swigging champagne.Then his wife accused him of involvement with the Adams family, the notorious London crime syndicate. There were rumours, too, that he had fallen foul of the Russian mafia, who had once dangled him over a Dorchester Hotel balcony. Five businessmen involved in the property deal died in strange circumstances, three in mysterious falls. One was Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, found hanged in his Berkshire home.Meanwhile, other super-rich friends - including Sir Philip Green and Simon Cowell - distanced themselves when Scot's dealings brought them into the spotlight, shunning any involvement in this strange conspiracy of silence.
