Hot on the heels of Richard Castle's number one New York Times best seller Heat Rises comes the fourth novel in the Nikki Heat series, Frozen Heat. Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook are together again, facing an unsolved murder mystery that has haunted Nikki for 10 years.

NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat arrives at her latest crime scene to find an unidentified woman stabbed to death and stuffed inside a suitcase left on a Manhattan street. Nikki is in for a big shock when this new homicide connects to the unsolved murder of her own mother. Paired once again with her romantic and investigative partner, top journalist Jameson Rook, Heat works to solve the mystery of the body in the suitcase while she is forced to confront unexplored areas of her mother's background.

Facing relentless danger as someone targets her for the next kill, Nikki's search will unearth painful family truths, expose a startling hidden life, and cause Nikki to reexamine her own past. Heat's passionate quest takes her and Rook from the back alleys of Manhattan to the avenues of Paris, trying to catch a ruthless killer. The question is, now that her mother's cold case has unexpectedly thawed, will Nikki Heat finally be able to solve the dark mystery that has been her demon for ten years?

    " Sets up for an exciting book 5!! I can't wait! "

    " The frozen body of French Nationalist, Nicole Bernardin found stuffed in a suitcase, which belonged to NYPD Homocide Detective Nikki Heat has Nikki thrown into a world of mystery, secrets and espionage.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ann | 2/13/2014

    " Another fun read from Richard Castle, the star of the TV series Castle. If you like the show you'll probably like the books which feature his characters Jameson Rook and Nikki Heat, based on himself and Detective Kate Beckett. In Frozen Heat, Nikki works a murder case with close ties to her mother's murder and so begins an emotional roller coaster as she solves the case that led her to becoming a cop in the first place. Lots of action, humor, intrigue, and romance. Its not great literature, but it is a good mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joules | 2/9/2014

    " This series is good all by itself, but you'll appreciate it even more if you watch the series and imagine Castle writing it. It has just the attitude that you'd expect from his writing. Rook is who he'd really like to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gillian | 2/6/2014

    " Ok ... Once again, Mr. Castle hits a home run! Just like the last books, this book does not disappoint. Dialogue is very witty and the story line was great. The author of course likes to tie in with the series which is great, because I am a big fan! Easy read and very entertaining!!! Can't wait for the next book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 2/3/2014

    " I missed #s 2&3 in this series, but I will be going back. Number 4 was much better then number 1. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 2/1/2014

    " SO many twists and turns in this one and didn't end as thought or wanted it to, BUT ended perfectly for another volume. HINT, HINT! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Kirton | 1/21/2014

    " This time Nikki is hunting a killer with a connection to her own past. The connection between Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook cannot be denied. I love the way these two work together. The trust and the not assuming the worst is refreshing. The trust isn't blind either, but more of a case to here what really happened. So many authors take the easy way out and keep the tension going by temporary mistrust. But that is not the way with Castle. He keeps the tension going while still having partners who have each others back. This fourth novel just came out and already I want the next one NOW. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hans | 1/21/2014

    " Best in the series. Good beach and plane reading "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelsey | 1/15/2014

    " Good story but took too long to get to the main plot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Sauer | 1/8/2014

    " Starts slow but is a page turner with leave them wanting more ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beverly | 12/30/2013

    " A good page-turning read; lots of action, good characterization; humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 12/12/2013

    " I liked this one much better than the last one, probably due to Rook and Heat's relationship and her willingness to trust him. Here's hoping that it's not screwed with too much in future books in the series. Obviously, as it does on the TV show, Heat's mother's murder is going to resurface again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik Waddell | 12/1/2013

    " A decent fun read. I didn't like this as much as the other "Nikki Heat" novels, mostly because the plot was a little more unbelievable that the other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 11/2/2013

    " Not "Great Literature" by any stretch of the imagination, but a fun thrill-ride type experience that works whether or not you are a fan of the "Castle" tv program that this series is spun off from. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 10/20/2013

    " 3.5 Stars These are fun books that are based upon the television show Castle. I do enjoy them quite a bit, but they feel predictable because the story lines follow the television show pretty closely. This one is about the search for the killer of Nikki Heat's mother. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracie | 9/23/2013

    " Best book in the Nikki Heat series to date! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott Love | 8/21/2013

    " Castle fans will not be disappointed! It reads just like an episode of Castle, even to the point of "seeing" Kate as Nikki and Castle as Rook. Pick this one up!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Spiegel | 7/21/2013

    " I enjoyed it. Love the banter! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayna | 4/18/2013

    " This one was pretty good. Took me a while to finish because of outside things going on, but I enjoyed it. In my top two from this series, if maybe not top. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gretchen | 4/7/2013

    " This fourth book in the series concerns Nikki's mom's murder and her life from college to her murder when Nikki was 19. It was pretty good. The characters sound just like the TV actors who play them, probably because they're the ones who write this series too. Have to wait until next year for #5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bettynz | 3/5/2013

    " Oh yes! These seem to improve the further through the series we get. I enjoyed this from beginning to end. Some resolutions, but some new questions too & a hook to draw us in to #5 if/when it is written. Well played, Richard Castle! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Parker | 1/3/2013

    " Love the Castle books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie H. | 9/17/2012

    " I really think this is the best book yet in the "Nikki Heat" series. The seemingly unending twists and turns kept me guessing the whole way through and the ending was awesome! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin S. | 9/16/2012

    " This book was pretty good but not up to the standards of earlier books in the series IMHO. The writing was kind of clunky and kept distracting me from the actual story. It was decently entertaining nonetheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah O. | 9/15/2012

    " I loved this installment in the fascinating adventures of Nikki Heat. It starts off a slowly and builds to a simmering story that does not fail to satisfy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne T. | 9/14/2012

    " I recently got hooked on this series and as such was looking forward to this book. I certainly wasn't disappointed as it offered up a plethora of thrills and twists that kept me glued to it until the very end. The beginning was a bit slow but it didn't take too long to take off after that. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 D.J.13 | 9/14/2012

    " Lightweight fluff that's a fun read but nothing particularly memorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CastleFan17 | 9/12/2012

    " A well written page turner that lives up to the hype and then some. I recommend it to mystery buffs wholeheartedly. "
