The only strong points in this book are the main characters and their interplay, Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook. They are fundamentally strong voices for any book. The story itself turns too many times and the other characters are too much of a formula. The book seems to drag with far too long, descriptive passages. I found myself pausing far too often so I could recall where I was in the story and the significance of a character or passage. It struck me that the writer was trying to hard to hide the motives of the killer(s) to create suspense or a surprise ending. It served only to make the story drag. The narration was pretty slow through most of the book but at "normal" speed in some parts. I suspect it is a problem with the recording as opposed to the narrator who's voice seemed to fit the book well.This is my third Richard Castle book. If it were my first, I would never have discovered the two much better ones.
Look upward and see the wonders I've seen
I didn't read the print version so I really can't say. I enjoyed the audio version.
Seeing how the characters from Castle become the characters in the Nikki Heat world.
Sure. He did a good job.
No, but it did make my commute more enjoyable for a week. Listening to audiobooks while I commute back and forth to work keeps my stress level down.
If your a Fan of the Hit Show Castle this is a fun book to read
Its like taken several shows and making into a book very clever and enjoyable to listen too.
audio books are Theater of the Mind when done right. They lift words from a page written by an author and transport you into another world
Niki duct taped to a chair and how she gets free and then kicks the bad guys ass. This showed how fast and how smart her Mind works and How strong of a women she truly is.
Not sure if I have, But I will in the future. Johnny did a great job. I really enjoyed his way of telling you this fun story.
I laughed in parts and felt the suspense like you were watching Castle on ABC Mondays at 10pm EST. Very well done book.
If you like Castle on TV, Then you will love this book. Very fun like the TV show.

The interaction between the characters
No, it was fun to come back to...
The narrator, Johnny Heller was great!
the scenes between nikki and roc.
he has a nice voice
If you love Castle on ABC, you'll like this series
Up near the top.
Envisioning the characters as those on the show "Castle".
Very clear and pleasant to listen to. He portrayed each "voice" so that it was obvious as to who was "speaking".
The book itself was a bit lengthy but I WAS entertained throughout it all.
I enjoy expanding on the TV seriew with these additional books. The characters have more depth, even though they are the fictional characters created by Richard Castle, who is a fictional character in the TV series.
