?Richard Castle proves as adept at writing thrillers as he is at solving crimes. HEAT rises to the occasion.?

?Dennis Lehane, bestselling author
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 bestselling 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.

Richard Castle - Naked Heat (Nikki Heat 02)

Castle is the title of a television cop show in which a mystery novelist, Richard Castle, teams up with a female NYPD detective (under the pretense of conducting research). In the show, Castle writes novels about a female New York cop, Nikki Heat, who reluctantly pairs up with a writer, Jameson Rook, who’s a fictionalized version of Castle himself. Got all that? Anyway, Naked Heat is the second Nikki Heat novel, credited, like the first (Heat Wave, 2009) to “Richard Castle.” Leaving aside the fiction-within-another-fiction conceit, it’s a pretty fair mystery. Heat and Rook are written in the familiar “contempt-breeds-familiarity” style: they start out antagonists and wind up partners (and more). We’ve seen them before, with other names in other stories, and we like them because they’re comfortable. The story, which begins with a pair of murders that appear to be connected only by their MO, is slick and enjoyable without being too taxing on the reader’s imagination. The book is exactly what it’s supposed to be: an entertaining but undemanding mystery that should draw attention to the TV series from which it’s spun off. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The TV series Castle is a big hit, and many of its fans will be curious to read a “real” book by their favorite fictional mystery writer.
