5.0 out of 5 stars Frozen Heat is Another Cleverly-Crafted, Action-Packed, and Entertaining Nikki Heat Novel, October 7, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Frozen Heat (Nikki Heat Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
Frozen Heat is the fourth Nikki Heat & Jameson Rook book by Richard Castle. Instead of the usual TV-tie-in books that provide extra episodes for the TV characters, these books are written by Richard Castle, a character on the ABC TV show, Castle. The characters in the books are based upon the Kate Beckett and Richard Castle characters and their colleagues in the TV show, e.g., Heat is an NYPD homicide detective and Rook is a writer who is embedded with Heat's squad. However, in the books the love relationship between Heat and Rook is fully developed and public instead teasing and desirous as in the TV show. Although, there are many similarities between the books and the TV show, it should come as no surprise that the books provide more complicated and in-depth stories along with more intimate knowledge of the characters thoughts, personalities, and relationships. In Frozen Heat, Nikki's squad investigates the murder of a woman whose body is found in a large suitcase. When Heat sees the suitcase she realizes that it previously belonged to her, and this murder is somehow linked to the unsolved murder of her mother ten years ago. Most of the investigation and action takes place in New York City. However, it also takes Heat and Rook to Boston and to Paris, France, and involves them with CIA operatives and other law enforcement units in New York and France. Heat confronts ruthless criminals in this case and she endures danger and brutal attempts on her life. It's a complicated story, which I found to be cleverly crafted, enticing, and suspenseful. Like the other Nikki Heat books, this one keeps the reader entertained, yet unsure (and surprised) about what is happening. I recommend this book to anyone who likes crime, detective, or police procedural novels, even if they have never seen the Castle TV show. BTW: If you are wondering who actually writes these books, Yahoo Answers reports that Nathan Fillion has confirmed that the ghost writer has "appeared on the show." Of course, an obvious conclusion would be that it is one or more of the authors (Misters: Connelly, Lehane, Patterson, and the late Cannell) who have occasionally appeared with Castle on the show. ... Nah, that's probably too obvious!
