Overview

From Tokyo, to Bonn, to London, high-level bankers are being tortured - and murdered.

Knowing only one man can match Volkov's strength and cunning, the CIA calls on Storm to track him down, figure out who he's working for and why. With the help of a beautiful and mysterious foreign agent, Storm discovers a plot that could destroy the global economy - bringing with it untold chaos - and the time he has to stop it is running short. It's the novel Castle fans have been clamoring for: there's a STORM FRONT coming!

Another home run for Richard Castle. Keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through. There are some odd typos but it doesn't distill the overall quality of the book. I definetly reccomend reading this book. -Alfredo

As Castle books go this was just alright. It took a long time to establish the characters and the premise of the plot. Of course the "good guy" wins, but there are a lot of unanswered questions.

From a person who has read the entire Nikki Heat collection and loved them, this book was a disappointment.  Simply "OK". The references to the Castle TV show characters are too cute, too obvious and too numerous. A political liberal bias is unnecessarily scattered throughout the story.  ie: Two Republicans are painted ad nauseam in a terribly negative light while the one Democrat is referred to as "one of the smartest people in DC".  If you are liberal or don't care about this stuff then this won't matter at all to you.  But that alone was enough to make me decide not to buy the next book. (if there is another one) The book couldn't decide whether it wanted to be a serious thriller (like the Nikki Heat series) or a campy, James Bond (Roger Moore era) wannabe.  Yes, there actually is a beautiful Chinese Secret agent named "She Bang"... If you are a Castle (Nathan Fillion) fan then you will enjoy this book if only because of it's connection with that show.  But don't expect it to be as good as the Nikki Heat series. And if you are a conservative, then be prepared to be ridiculed by Hollywood.  Again...

What a sad situation that all the junk reviews allowed on the Nook site without any restrictions for trash take away from a very good review that a few of us have actually written. Found this book to be the best in the series thus far.

This was a pretty good action novel. This guy is a little unbelievable but still the story keeps one entertained and that's the whole idea. I kind of like Derrick Storm.

I felt that this was not very well written. It skipped from one plot to the next. It didn't hold my interest at all and the writing was very basic. I only read about 40 pages and then archived. A waste of money.

There are so many gaps, gaffes, and goofs in this "book," that I'm embarrassed to admit I spent $8.00 on it I liked the Nikki Heat books well enoigh, but StormFront is a joke. Cleveland Detroit?!?! After loads of effort to create a backstory for the rumpled SOYBEAN writer (at an international finance summit?), they name him Cleveland Detroit? Because his mom liked the Indiams and his dad liked the Lions? So those are his first and middle names? Or did his dad choose his own surname based on a team? What? SPOILER ALERT: Storm discusses Volkov at length with Cracker in the front yard of Cracker's home, and then in chapter 27 Cracker tells Storm he's involved with Volkov. He says, "Oh, you know of him." Ummm...YES. That's who we talked about that eas murdering bankers!!! I could go on and on. One last thing (I am only on chapter27!): Storm learns about the Click Theory and then EMAILS ALL THE NEWS TO HIS DAD!?!?!?!?!? I am literally shaking my head. Oh, Lord, I forgot: I don't yet know who has multiple cameras on Cracker's office space, but couldn't Volkov have installed cameras quickly and safely in all six offices of bankers and gotten their passwords that way? It would be lots easier than transporting a team of six to breakin and torture people all over the world! Okay, one more, and I swear I will stop. Volkov's goon didn't have time to put on his silencer before he shot the dog? How about on the trip of many, many hours to get to South Africa; could he have put on the silencer as he CROSSED A CONTINENT?!?!?!

Castle's imagination runs a little too wild in this one.
