The Sentence is Death by Anthony Horowitz

A divorce lawyer to the rich and famous is found murdered in his Hampstead townhouse. Richard Pryce has been struck on the head with a bottle of Château Lafite worth thousands, with the killer daubing the letters 182 on the wall before leaving. The victim was on the phone at the time. His last words: “You shouldn’t be here. It’s too late.”

For reasons best known to itself, Scotland Yard calls in the services of former Detective Inspector Daniel Hawthorne, who’s been dismissed from the force after pushing a paedophile down the stairs to his death. He, for even less explicable reasons, brings in a bestselling author and screenwriter to help him investigate. As you do.
