Foyle's War scriptwriter Anthony Horowitz, hoping to write something realistic again for adults after churning out the Alex Rider books, signs on as Dr Watson to a grouchy but astute ex-CID detective trying to solve the murder of a woman who'd booked her own funeral earlier that day. After a second gruesome murder, Horowitz thinks he's solved the case - only to find himself at the killer's mercy. - Stephen (QBD)
