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 poles 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

Although the title may seem to be derived from a well-known quotation ("Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"), that is a misquote. The original line is from William Congreve's 1697 play "The Mourning Bride", act iii, scene 8: "Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."* In order for the title to have adhered to the original form of the quote, it should have been "Nor Hell A Fury". "The Mourning Bride" is the source of another famous misquote; "Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak. I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd, And, as with living Souls, have been form'd by Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound." the line appears in act i scene 1. (*In its original form, the quote is "Heav'n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn'd, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd") See more

Can't be easy breaking that kind of news.
Yeah, well, thanks for not making it a joke.
Hey, I'm a wise ass, not a jackass.
