Storyline

Local businessmen take instantly to John Riley, a geologist who's moving to town from Cleveland. They do their research and find he's a geologist who's made a fortune in locating oil deposits. Simply by acting like a low-key businessman, Riley has the town's leaders happily forking over $100,000 to start drilling on his next well. The investors find out too late that their man is only passing himself off as a real geologist named John Riley. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>
