Overview

ABOUT THE BOOK While it takes the form of a fairly conventional murder mystery show, Castle delights in misdirection, red herrings, and character interaction. When other shows focus on forensic evidence or legal maneuvering, Castle tells the story of the victim: how they got to the point at which someone else felt compelled to snuff out his or her life. A crime novelist shadowing a police detective for three years requires some suspension of disbelief, but the trust Beckett shows in Castle, and the value he lends to investigations, makes it plausible. Castle also excels at blurring the lines between its fictional universe and the real world. It's not unusual for a modern television show to set up the occasional Web site as a promotional tool, but Castle doesn't stop there. Male lead Nathan Fillion is a Twitter star with well over a million followers, but his character Richard Castle also tweets regularly-though the latter can claim only 72,000 followers, as of this writing.

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK

The last time we saw Rick Castle, he was headed to the Hamptons with his publisher/ex-wife. He's not around when Beckett, Ryan, and Esposito are called to investigate the murder of teacher Chloe Whitman, who was shot in her apartment and tumbled out the window. When they find the handwritten address of another apartment, they head over to find Castle standing over the resident, along with his friend, sculptor Maya Santori, who is holding a gun.

Beckett sets him loose, but he shows up at the next victim's apartment too. A man named Todd McKutcheon who works with vending machines, had called both Chloe and Maya. Castle star-69's him from Maya's place.

I don't currently own Castle Season 3 on DVD, but reading Andrews's book reminds me just how much I enjoyed watching it. His episode recaps are both succinct and fun to read; he's picked excellent quotes to highlight great moments in each episode, and his notes on what to watch for make me realize how much I missed watching the season on my own. Better yet, Andrews has compiled notes on how the real-world nom-de-plume "Richard Castle" has released books, graphic novels, and e-books (and developed a twitter following) that will help Castle watchers who also want to be Castle readers update their own libraries. Since I missed the last two book releases, I now know what else to put on my to-be-read list! It is always nice for me to see writer friends (of whom Andrews is one) succeed in releasing a new book; it's even better when the book is one I enjoy! Andrews's Quicklet easily fulfills both of those requirements. Verdict: A quick, easy highlight of what made Castle Season 3 fun to watch, sure to make viewers (or people who missed the episodes the first time around) itch to watch the show again.
