At New York luxury hotel tycoon Victor Baron's famous national beauty pageant, Illinois contestant Amber Middleberry was strangled and hoisted up on scene. Amateur Castle and Becket, who hates that scene, investigate. A black sequin found on the corpse matches no competitor, but host Bobby Stark, Castle's favorite soap TV model father, who in fact has a stalking history without convictions. Meanwhile, Alexis lovingly dumps Ashley just to stop him studying in New York so as to remain close to her.

Twice Castle tells Alexis that they could become the father-daughter version of Grey Garden. 'Grey Garden' was a 1975 documentary about an 80 year old woman and her middle aged daughter. Formerly rich members of upper society they were now poor, socially isolated, possibly crazed, and living in the squalid remains of their rotting family mansion. All they had was each other and their dreams of past glory. See more
