Horton is given only a week to find the killer, after that he will be shunted off the case.
Horton now has a point to prove as well as a complex murder case to solve.
A note was found on the victim - Have you forgotten ME? - along with money wrapped up in a five-pound note and smothered with honey.

Is it simply a senseless murder by an unhinged killer or does someone close to the head have a motive for murder?
As Horton delves deeper into the investigation, aided by Sergeant Cantelli, the tension mounts.
With the clock ticking Horton is soon forced to take a decision that will put his life on the line...
