New York real estate tycoon plunges to his death on a Manhattan
sidewalk. A trophy wife with a past survives a narrow escape from a
brazen attack. Mobsters and moguls with no shortage of reasons to kill
trot out their alibis. And then, in the suffocating grip of a record
heat wave, comes another shocking murder and a sharp turn in a tense
journey into the dirty little secrets of the wealthy. Secrets that prove
to be fatal. Secrets that lay hidden in the dark until one NYPD
detective shines a light.
Mystery sensation Richard Castle introduces his newest character, NYPD
homicide detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, and professional, Nikki
carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City’s top
homicide squads. She’s hit with an unexpected challenge when the
commissioner assigns superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook to ride
along with her to research an article on New York’s Finest. Pulitzer
Prize winner Rook is as much a handful as he is handsome. But his
wisecracking and meddling aren’t Nikki’s only problems. As she works to
unravel the secrets of the murdered real estate tycoon, she must also
confront the spark between them. The one called heat.
Castle, the hit ABC television series, premiered in March 2009.
The main character, Richard Castle, is the bestselling mystery author of
the critically acclaimed Derrick Storm novels. The hard-nosed but sexy
Detective Kate Beckett, with whom Castle is paired up, provided the
inspiration for Nikki Heat. Download and start listening now!
