If you enjoy the TV Series and you enjoyed The 1st two books you will throughly enjoy this one. I am a big fan of Murder Mystery Books with the likes of James Patterson and Catherine Coulter; Richard Castle has done it again. Only problem I had with it was nothing with the writing or storyline, but I bought the Nook under the understanding that ebooks would be cheaper; however like this one the ebook copy which you can not share with anyone it is $14+ whene you can by the paperback for only ~$10 and you can re-sell in the future if you would like. What is up with the prices of the ebook. I stronly suggest buying the paperback or wait a year or two to purchase the ebook as I can't say I would recommend paying $14+ for this ebook or any for that matter...

I'm a big fan of the Castle TV show, and having read the first two books in the Nikki Heat series, I really looked forward to this one. WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE LANGUAGE??? Is this book by the same writer(s) as the first book? The story was fast-moving, although I guessed who the big baddie was as soon as the character was introduced. We traded the witty banter that made the first book a delight (without the need for constant gutter mouth) for a few more f-bombs in the second book. Then number three hits us with a barrage of filthy language. When it comes to words, I'd much rather read creative and witty than go for the "shock value." At this point, I don't really care what happens to Rook. I won't be back to read about it -- not if I have to put up with the language. And oh, yeah -- I agree about the price. You can buy a paperback that doesn't have all the errors in it for a lot less.

    more from this reviewer

    Another great read

    A fantastic 3rd addition to the Richard Castle universe. Great for fans because of the wonderful in-jokes or mystery enthusiasts in general.

    a interesting hard to put down book

    I like the nonstop action of Richard Castles books. This and #2 were action packed and interesting. I would believe this is more of a ladies book however, men would enjoy it also.

    GOOD read

    It was down to the last 3 pages before you actually knew who was the master mind. Can't say that for most books. Good read

    nikki heat #3

    Enjoyed this book. Have read all 3 and found this one was as much fun as the other two books. If you are wanting to read for relaxation and not to inform your brain, then this is a good read.
