Martha's connections in soap operas prove dangerous as well as practical and sexy when the chief script writer on "Temptation Lane," which once made Martha's career, is axe-murdered.

To play on the killer's guilty conscience, trying to trick him or her into revealing their guilt, Castle creates and inserts new dialogue into a "Temptation Lane" shooting that mirrors the events leading up to the murder. As a writer, he is paying homage to William Shakespeare
's "Hamlet", in which the title character does the same thing in a play within the play in order to verify his suspicion about Claudius' role in the late King Hamlet's alleged murder. See more
