Publisher's Summary

Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm, New York Times best-selling author Richard Castle's most enduring and beloved characters, team up for the first time to save Nikki's mother, Cynthia, who has been in hiding (and presumed dead) for 17 years. Standing in their way is a nefarious group of Chinese businessmen known as the Shanghai Seven, who have the resources - and ruthlessness - to stop them.

Excellent close to a great series.

This book was great. It had a lot of action, a good twist and lots of political intrigue. Heat and Storm working together made for excellent chemistry. Closed out all of the ongoing mysteries in both series. Highly recommend both the Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm books to anyone who enjoys a good mystery with intrigue.

Heat & Storm Together at Last

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE keep writing the Nikki Heat (and Derek Storm) novels. I was so glad to see this book. I feared "Richard Castle", whomever he may be, wouldn't continue with the books, after the TV series Castle was canceled. I miss spending my Monday evenings with Beckett, Castle, and the team. These books enable the characters to still live, so to speak.

BIG FAN

I've listened to every Richard Castle story, and every one was exciting and fun. I have a feeling this might be the last one...sort of wrapping things up. This particular mashup of Derrick Storm and Nikki Heat should have been much better, especially the end, which seemed somewhat abrupt. As usual, the narration was good, and as usual no one will accuse the author of writing great literature, but also as usual the story hold up well. I would have like to have heard a little grittier story, much like some of the early Nikki Heat volumes. I will recommend this book for any fan of the Richard Castle books, but it is certainly not a good place to start either the Heat or the Storm series. I will be happy if this joint series continues, but I'm not holding my breath.

Great book

Would be even greater if they would only leave out the profanity. It doesn't add anything to the story so why use it. Last part of book had very little and I enjoyed it greatly.

Loved the Dynamic Duo

Great idea to bring Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm together. Glad Nikki’s issues with staying away from Rook were settled early in the book. Rook & Derrick’s dad really added to the character development of the book. I hope this is a first of many more to come.

Best Castle Book!

When I first started this book I was discouraged that it seemed to pivot around season 8 of the TV show (which wasn't a great season). But the book quickly takes a better turn and its non-stop action from start to finish. I highly recommend it!
