City councilor Jeff Horn is murdered during a reelection campaign. The body was dumped in a rug from the hotel of nightclub baron Calvin Creason, whose latest major project was blocked by Horn. This clue is too obvious for Castle, even without an alibi. Calvin could just wait, knowing his opponent, Jason Bollinger, is ahead in the polls and possesses photos of Jeff with prostitute Tiffany obtained from P.I. Bruce Kirby, a fired cop. She says Jeff was being blackmailed. Widow Laurie Horn now stands, and takes the lead. The investigation focuses on money trails. Written by
