Publisher's Summary

Hot on the heels of Richard Castle's number one New York Times best seller Heat Rises comes the fourth novel in the Nikki Heat series, Frozen Heat. Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook are together again, facing an unsolved murder mystery that has haunted Nikki for 10 years.

NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat arrives at her latest crime scene to find an unidentified woman stabbed to death and stuffed inside a suitcase left on a Manhattan street. Nikki is in for a big shock when this new homicide connects to the unsolved murder of her own mother. Paired once again with her romantic and investigative partner, top journalist Jameson Rook, Heat works to solve the mystery of the body in the suitcase while she is forced to confront unexplored areas of her mother's background.

Facing relentless danger as someone targets her for the next kill, Nikki's search will unearth painful family truths, expose a startling hidden life, and cause Nikki to reexamine her own past. Heat's passionate quest takes her and Rook from the back alleys of Manhattan to the avenues of Paris, trying to catch a ruthless killer. The question is, now that her mother's cold case has unexpectedly thawed, will Nikki Heat finally be able to solve the dark mystery that has been her demon for ten years?

Good story

I enjoyed the fourth book in the Richard Castle series. this one is very busy and has a lot going on Kate goes after her mother's killer and it is a little improbable but since it is fiction it was very well done

worth a credit --- I liked it

You Go Nikki Heat!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes- loved them hot on the trail to investigate her mother's murder.

What about Johnny Heller’s performance did you like?

His personality shines thru, like your watching the Castle Tv series. I enjoy the commaraderie between Roach and Rook. I can see parallels to episodes, and themes to the show, and yes, love the tv series as well. The characters are endearing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I smile, because I think I can see a direct link, to how Stana plays her part, as well as Nathan, and the part of Kate Beckett on the show, the icy wall- a protective wall that she shuts people out of her personal life, and keeps people away. The book dwelves into that similar co-relation, that Jameson Rook finds out about her mother, while they investigate, leaving him to say,"the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."
Loved where Nikki's father is introduced into the story.

Any additional comments?

I found it hard to put down, or turn off from audible. I really liked it, and if your a Castle fan, a must read for this season 5 coming up. I think you will too.
