    Would you try another book from Richard Castle and/or Johnny Heller?

    No, not that their stories aren't good but it's very predictable, especially when compared to the series, which is saying a lot.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard Castle again?

    No.


    What about Johnny Heller’s performance did you like?

    Yes, he makes you feel the characters, just not enough story to give feeling to.


    Do you think Naked Heat needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, what's left to find out?

    A calculating killer who calls himself The Teacher is taking on New York City, killing the powerful and the arrogant. His message is clear: remember your manners or suffer the consequences! For some, it seems that the rich are finally getting what they deserve. For New York's elite, it is a call to terror.

    Only one man can tackle such a high-profile case: Detective Mike Bennett. The pressure is enough for anyone, but Mike also has to care for his ten children-all of whom have come down with virulent flu at once!

    Discovering a secret pattern in The Teacher's lessons, Detective Bennett realizes he has just hours to save New York from the greatest disaster in its history.

    When Santa Cruz County deputy sheriff Jose Reyes, Ali’s classmate from the Arizona Police Academy, is gunned down and left to die, he is at first assumed to be an innocent victim of the drug wars escalating across the border. But the crime scene investigation shows there’s much more to it than that, and soon he and his pregnant wife, Teresa, both fall under suspicion of wrongdoing. Ali owes Reyes a debt of gratitude for the help he gave her years earlier when she was dealing with a troubled friend. When she’s summoned to his bedside at Physicians Medical Center in Tucson, she can't turn away.

    Before Stephanie can even step foot off Flight 127, Hawaii to Newark, she’s knee deep in trouble. Her dream vacation turned into a nightmare, and she’s flying back to New Jersey solo. Worse still, her seatmate never returned to the plane after the L.A. layover. Now he’s dead, in a garbage can, waiting for curbside pickup. His killer could be anyone. And a ragtag collection of thugs and psychos, not to mention the FBI, are all looking for a photograph the dead man was supposed to be carrying.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Explosive Eighteen to be better than the print version?

    Some parts were more interesting but the book is a good read also.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The comedy was back, missed the screwy situations she gets herself into.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Stephanie of course. She is so out her depth in this job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not especially
