The editing is atrocious, with spelling and grammatical errors throughout. There's even one spot where one of the characters is referred to by the wrong name!

The plot is one-dimensional and predictable. Anyone with half a brain could see the ending coming a mile away.

The entire series feels like it was written and edited in a hurry. Definitely not what I've come to expect from Richard Castle. I hope Frozen Heat has spent a lot more time with the editor.

A lot of action packed into a short story but the editing & vocabulary issues detract from the overall enjoyment.

Excellent short story either as a stand alone, or as part of the Derrick Storm series by "Richard Castle." Bringing their fictional author's books to life was probably one of the most innovative marketing stunts ABC could have pulled. That they made the books really good, enjoyable entries in their field was a major coup.

Finally, the 3rd Derek Storm short story lived up to what I expected from this character. I zipped thru these 3 short stories in just a little over a week (plus reading other books). This time a little less sexual banter with FBI Agent April Showers and a lot more of spy type action. Hints of "The Eiger Sanction" by Trevanian (Clint Eastwood made a movie out this book).

I can only hope future Derek Storm stories are as good as this one. Spies, action, a hidden treasure worth BILLIONS, moles, death, chases, and shoot-outs. Who can you trust? Yup, I liked this story the best of the 3 Derek Storm short stories. I'll read a few other books and then on to more Nikki Heat stories.

I have really enjoyed this series. It has been very well done as one story over three ebook novellas. Even though this is the climactic end to the series I still feel the second novella A Raging Storm, was my favorite.

This novella picks up right as the second leaves us with a massive cliffhanger. Derrick Storm is trying to save himself and his FBI partner from Russian goons looking for gold. Storm's boss sends him and a team of other operatives off the books to find this gold before the Russians can get to it.

This was a great series and it is well worth the read for anyone looking for a good spy story, not just fans of the show Castle. I will say my biggest complaint with this particular book was the typos. There were times the names changed, Agent Showers was Agent Flowers at one point. And my favorite mistake was when Storm cautiously Peed over the jacked surface of a rock in a gun fight at night. I am pretty sure the character wouldn't have peed over a rock during a gun fight where he is trying to hide from his attackers. But I do understand, when you've got to go, you got to go. It did make for an entertaining chuckle.

I was enjoying the Kindle book until I realized that Storm had truly done the impossible: Trapped in a cave, he stopped behind a rock and . . . "Using it to shield his body, he peed over its jagged surface."

Derrick Storm is once again embroiled in espionage and counter espionage. The book is short -- as advertised. For a short work it packs a punch, but can't deliver on the depth of story that you find in the full length books. The characters are shallow, the plot line is singular. If you are looking for something you can pick up and read in one plane ride, this is perfect, but if you want a book that really pulls you in and takes you along for the ride, I'd recommend Castle's longer works.
