In New York Times bestselling
author Richard Castle’s newest novel, an illegal immigrant falls from the sky
and NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat’s investigation into his death quickly
captures the imagination of her boyfriend, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist
Jameson Rook. When he decides to work the case with Heat as his next big story,
Nikki is at first happy to have him ride along. Yes, she must endure Rook’s
usual wild conspiracy speculations and adolescent wisecracks, but after
reuniting following his recent assignment abroad, she’s glad for the
entertainment, the chance to bounce ideas around, and just to be close to him
again and feel the old spark rekindle. But when Rook’s inquiry concludes that
Detective Heat has arrested the wrong man for the murder, everything changes.
Balancing her high stakes job with a complicated romance has
been a challenge ever since Nikki fell for the famous reporter. Now, her
relationship lurches from mere complexity into sharp conflict over the most
high-risk case of her career. Set against the raging force of Hurricane Sandy
as it pounds New York, Heat battles an ambitious powerbroker, fights a platoon
of urban mercenaries, and clashes with the man she loves. Detective Heat knows
her job is to solve murders. She just worries that solving this one will be the
death of her relationship.
