Publisher's Summary

When Derrick Storm needed to leave the CIA, he couldn't just retire. He had to fake his own death. So when his former boss calls in an old favor that will bring Storm out of early retirement and back to Washington to investigate a high-profile kidnapping, he knows there must be more at stake than the life of a senator's son. Working alongside, but not exactly with, bombshell FBI investigator April Showers, Storm must make sense of a confusing flurry of ransom notes and a complicated web of personal relationships and international politics. He'll get to the bottom of the kidnapping, but a storm is still brewing - filled with assassins, gold bars hidden by the Communist Party in the former USSR, and someone leaking information to the Russian government. While the CIA mission is getting heated, nothing compares to the growing sexual tension between Storm and Showers. And as the mission begins to unravel they find out the hard way that their assignment may not be what they thought it was.…

Originally released as separate e-book shorts, now all three stories are together and in audio for the first time!

You really can see this being written by Castle

This book is expertly ghost written. You can really envision this being written by Richard Castle.

If you are a fan of the TV Series, this (as are the Nikki Heat books) is a must-listen because it gives insight to the back-story of Richard Castle and enhances the character.

The story is engaging and hard to turn off. This book may have cost me more on gas because I found myself taking the long way home to listen longer (I listen to audiobooks in the car).

I wish Audible would do this with more short story series. I enjoy short audio books but it is painful buying them one at a time at a price that is higher than buying a full video production that takes many dozens of people to produce.

Wild ride with Richard Castle

I was a huge fan of the Nikki Heat books and was looking forward to the new Storm series coming out. I hope that all of the "Castle" books are eventually written and released. This trilogy was very entertaining and was a great introduction to the storm series.

Started out strong and finished with a big whimper!

The first story was great. The second two stories got progressively weaker as they went on. They weren't bad, just not as strong. I liked the stories characters and the stories overall. Just be prepared for them to progressively get weaker.

SURPRISING WONDERFUL

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great book. As a Castle TV fan I was surprised to find Richard Castle/Derrick Storm books. Thoroughly enjoyed this and will be looking for others.

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

Yes, there wasn't repetition in the story line and it flowed consistently. Fun and interesting sub plots.

What about Johnny Heller’s performance did you like?

Awesome! I'm particular about the narrator, especially when a man does it and has to reflect a female voice and vice versa. Johnny did an excellent job on changing his voice and made it following he story even easier.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no, I listen in the car off my Garmin and it was very easy to pick up.

Good way to spend a brainless 8 hours!

Like the mystery/romance/suspense Nikki Heat series the Derrick Storm series is a spin-off of the now defunct ABC Network Castle TV series. Like the Nikki Heat series it's all about mystery, suspense and romance. Author Richard Castle in these novels and short stories is likely a pen name for a number of ABC Network writers. I did enjoy the three shorts in this audio book. They are light, sexy, and brainless. Johnny Heller's narration is excellent.

Mono Audible! Whats up with That!

Would you try another book from Richard Castle and/or Johnny Heller?

Yep. Ive listened to all of the books and will agree with others that its a blast to dive into the Shows Universe.

What could Richard Castle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Nothing. I think its a Tech Issues and I'll try to delete from the devise and re-download it.<br/>Nope it didn't work. Apparently its the New Update for the Iphone 5 because its mono on another e-book.. Ill need to check this on the iPod.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johnny Heller?

Nope he is the man

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

ARGH!!!!!!!! Deleted it and its still in mono!

Any additional comments?

Audible should be in stereo! <br/>This is aggravating and down right unlistenable.<br/>Yep its the App on the Iphone 5 and the new iOS
