Based on the TV show Castle: Gabriel Tricksler is a successful crime author with everything going for him. He's got a great publisher behind him, several best-sellers under his belt and now Hollywood wants to make his books into a blockbuster. Life couldn't get much better.
Well, he could find some motivation to write.
Luckily for him, or maybe not as it turns out, a body is discovered at one of his charity events, and the investigating officer is none other than Sam Wesson, one of the city's best homicide investigators and perfect inspiration. He's not so keen on working side-by-side with Gabriel Tricksler, but his Chief makes sure he has no choice in the matter.
Of course, when Gabriel manages to literally stumble over a second corpse, Sam starts to suspect that Gabriel is more involved than he's letting on.
