The 1st installment Naked Heat was a good mystery and reminiscent of the early days of the TV show. Thus I would strongly recommend this Book to Castle fans looking for more now that the show is gone.
I'm giving this book 4 stars instead of 5 since the writing wasn't as polished as it could have been and the general mystery wasn't difficult to solve, though some of the details of the crime were more difficult to decipher ahead of time. As a fan of the TV show, I thought it was cute and fun that the fictional character of Richard Castle is being used as a real writer.
I wouldn't be a true fan if I didn't read his made-up novels. I read the Storm novels and thought they were entertaining. I decided to read the first Nikki Heat novel and was a wee-bit disappointed.
But all in all it was still very entertaining. There were a few 'dry' filler chapters and then there were a few suspenseful moments, pretty much like the TV show. I literally pictured Stana and Nathan in every chapter and the full cast of Castle. I believe that is the reason I still found it entertaining to read.
I think these prices are absurd since Richard Castle is not a real writer. To name a few.
That's it I guess in a nutshell: One person found this helpful. CoachD Top Contributor: DC Comics. What can I say? The Complete First Season. I figured it was time for me to take the plunge and actually read a Nikki Heat story, and I am glad I did. Yes, but darn close as well.
I would say you don't "need" to, but it sure helps. If you watch the show, you'll pick up on lines from the show and see how the characters think and act. No [HD ] that they are making fun of. Sure you can still laugh at the antics of Powers, but to truly get the gags, it helps to have seen the movies that he is making parodies of.
The bottom line is that I enjoyed reading this thriller and will plan on reading the other Nikki Heat stories. My wife has them all on her Kindle, and I'll just get them delivered to my Kindle. A Brewing Storm: A few days ago Sue Grafton, one of the finest mystery writers of my lifetime, passed away. Seeing the news of her passing reminded me that I had not read a novel in several years. Richard Castle is not a real person, of course, so my expectations were not high. When the day arrives that computer AI become published writers their stories will be very much like this one: By the same token, it will do for now.
I love the ABC's series "Castle". The characters in the book are loosely based on the characters of the show. I say loosely because as much as I like the book, the characters pale in comparison to the characters of the show. When Det. Nikki Heat is called to the murder of Real Estate mogul Matthew Starr, her biggest problem is her tag along reporter.
Does she give in to her attraction to Jamison Rook?
Jamison Rook is annoying yet handsome, aggravating yet charming, and funny. Although sometimes his jokes are a little misplaced and bad timed.
Detectives Raley and Ochoa are also funny and love having Jamison around. This whodunit story is pretty compelling and surprising. There are so many suspects but the story flows nicely so you aren't confused or lost by it all. We didn't like it. The wife didn't even finish it.
Ok, a bit more meat? Nikki Heat tries to thread the needle between a goofy cut up comedy and a police procedural and fails.
When a copy-cat killer stages the crime scenes right from the pages of his books, he is called in to assist Detective Kate Beckett and her team. At the end of the pilot episode, he becomes Beckett's partner in order to do "research". Heat Wave is released at the start of the second season which aired just before the actual release of the book.
Ms Heat is good at her job and is the leader of her team investigating murders. Rook proves to be a challenge to Heat as he has a mind of his own. As much as Heat hates Rook, she also feels a compelling force that draws him to her. Heat feels the heat between them. Ms Heat tries to handle her professional work, as well as answer to the call of nature as she falls for her handsome, magnetic shadow. In her work, Heat has to dig into the case of a real estate millionaire who fell to his death.
His widowed wife was attacked but survived the confrontation. Heat is "loosely" based on the fictional NYPD detective Kate Beckett , possessing a similar backstory, in that her decision to become a detective was motivated by the death of someone close to her - although Heat has a niece and siblings that Beckett lacks - and the first case she investigates is adapted from several real cases Castle helped Beckett solve.
