    Story

    Determined to find justice for her mother, top NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat continues to pursue the elusive former CIA station chief who ordered her execution more than a decade ago. For the hunt, Nikki teams once again with her romantic partner, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jameson Rook, and their quest for the old spy and the motive behind the past murder unearths an alarming terror plot, which is anything but ancient history. It is lethal. It is now. And it has already entered its countdown phase.

    Stacey Joseph says: "Narrator ruins the characters."

    Would you try another book from Richard Castle and/or Robert Petkoff?

    Another book by Richard Castle, YES. Another story by Robert Petkoff ..Probably not. I was eagerly awaiting this book. Very disappointed in the narrator. There is no voice difference between characters. It all just sounds like him "reading". Thank goodness I read the previous book and can still picture the different voices, so I still feel like I know the side characters as they are speaking.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Petkoff?

    I would have used the previous narrator, Johnny Heller. Some people didn't care for him, but at least the characters came alive while you were listening. There is a reason they call it a "performance".


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, once on dvd or cable.
