Action movie star Zane Cannon was murdered while rehearsing Hamlet, a play with co-star Naomi Fox directed by Erin Cherloff, both seriously reputed. The team soon finds links with Zane's ex-con stepbrother, Johnny Toro, Guadalajara drug cartel-baron, Jorge 'El Oso' Zamacona and his so far clean-reputed brother businessman, Hector. Castle gets snatched by Jorge, who demands a script recounting his life. Meanwhile the Broadway scene is proven far from innocent. Written by KGF Vissers
