Just a look at the dedication shows the close (and deliberate) relationship between the show and the books.  Outstanding!!  This book continues the plot from Book 4 and carries it further.  It is clever with most of the regular group being even more rounded out.  The author (perhaps Tom Straw) does another terrific job on the plot (including stealing the pizza oven bit from the TV show) (Minor spoiler coming) In the end, I expected Rook to propose to Nikki, but, of course, this book was written before Castle proposes to Beckett. Once again, Well Done everyone!!.

I have enjoyed the Nikki Heat series to this point. Entertaining read and dove tails nicely with the characters in the "Castle". But Deadly Heat is a disappointment. From the 1st chapter, it was quite apparently written by a different ghost writer or writers than the previous novels. Nikki's personality is inconsistent with the prior Novels in several ways. Not the least of which is her penchant for dropping the "F Bomb". This language was not present previously (if it was, it couldn't have been used with the frequency encountered in just the 1st chapter alone !! As well, Nikki is displaying a very "clingy/needy" personality inconsistant with the character. The foul language does nothing to enhance the story and is offensive to read. And by the way, B & N charges about $4 more for the same novel than Amazon. Oh, and did I mention it seems to be written in a different literary style than 1-4? We don't expect Dickens but come'n, we don't want Collins either!

I was very disappointed by this book. Whereas the previous Heat books have been similar to the TV show (smart, fun), this one was a profanity-laced waste of time.

Richard Castle strikes again. Deadly Heat number five in the series is like a fine aged wine. They just keep getting better, more complex and full bodied with time. My favorite to date. Cannot wait for #6.

If you watch the series, you don't need to read this book. Every plot turn is like "deja vu all over again." It's the opposite of Law and Order's ripped-from-the-headlines approach. This book is ripped from the TV series, with underground CIA bunkers, quick trips to Paris, kidnappings and just way too much stuff happening to a homicide detective. Let the new season begin.

Deadly Heat by Richard Castle is a terrific, fast paced, thrilling read. These characters are addicting and I am so happy that I can now catch up with the series. It is just so easy to get drawn in to the story line. The pages keep turning as the suspense builds. And the witty banter all around is contagious. Cheers to happy endings.

I've been reading the series since the T.V. show started. I love the way they have Rick Castle's (Nathan Fillion) picture in the back of the book with a bio that corresponds to the premise of the show. I don't know who is doing the ACTUAL writing of the mysteries, but he?she ? is doing a great job. Good ,fun read.

The story, a continuation from book 4, is well done, but unlike most of the series, I started putting things into place sometimes long before our protagonist Nikki Heat did so. However the reveal in the final chapter was a surprise and I was thankful for that. Foul language, not normally found frequently in this series, is at an all time high and that also affects my rating. Overall, not bad, but definitely not the best of the series.
