Publisher's Summary

Fast-paced and full of intrigue, Heat Rises pairs the tough and sexy NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat with hotshot reporter Jameson Rook in New York Times best-selling author Richard Castle's most thrilling mystery yet.

The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat's most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York's most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest level of the NYPD.

But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge, and out on her own as a target for killers with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who's not a cop. Reporter Jameson Rook.

In the midst of New York's coldest winter in a hundred years, there's one thing Nikki is determined to prove: Heat Rises.

    "Nice twist in the story"

    I enjoyed this installment in the Nikki Heat series. Good plot development and with elements different than the first two. Keeps the story from becoming stale.

    "Read again, a keeper"

    but read it yourself, narrating lacks, but it's one of those you can pick up again and get more the next time. said nuf

    "Just like TV"

    This episode is very good. I expect that Richard Castle is a group of writers. It reads like the show, but has much more detail. This is great because I love the show. "I am ruggedly handsome!" Oh yeah!

    "The story goes on"

    I was a fan of the tv series first and so I am already in love with the characters. The books live up to what any fan would expect or I should say if like the tv series you will love the books!

    Story
    "Castle"
    If you could sum up Heat Rises in three words, what would they be?

    Typical Castle


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

    I enjoyed the pure fun of compare this to the castle tv show


    What aspect of Johnny Heller’s performance would you have changed?

    I think a women would do this better.
