Congrats to "Richard Castle" for Heat Wave's entry on the NY Times Best Sellers (Hardcover Fiction) List!. Nikki heat is detective Beckett, and even her two detectives are in the book. In a way, it reads very much like the television show which is fine by me. All the elements are there. Jan 01, 2010 Jennifer rated it really liked it. Shelves: mystery. I'm a big fan of the TV show Castle and had been dying to read the Nikki Heat books supposedly written by Nathan Fillion's character. In Heat Wave, I found great writing, wonderful character chemistry and an unbeatable mystery.

I can't NOT recommend any of the Richard Castle books, just because I love these characters/this series so much. However, just know that books 4 & 5 are kind of like those first few episodes of Friday Night Lights, Season Two: you just gotta power though them and try to not let them taint your enjoyment of what came before, and what comes after.

A trophy wife with a past survives a narrow escape from a brazen attack.

I was a fan of the recently cancelled TV series, but it took me a long time to start reading this series of books. The 1st installment Naked Heat was a good mystery and reminiscent of the early days of the TV show. Thus I would strongly recommend this Book to Castle fans looking for more now that the show is gone. I'm giving this book 4 stars instead of 5 since the writing wasn't as polished as it could have been and the general mystery wasn't difficult to solve, though some of the details of the crime were more difficult to decipher ahead of time.

During the recent contract negotiations over a new "Castle" TV series season, I went looking for an alternative I've seen most of them and wanted more. I settled on reading the Nikki Heat (NH) book series. Like the Game of Thrones(GOT), there are many volumes [ five written with two more contracted for GOT and seven written and unknown total contracted for NH]. I've read six of the seven NH volumes - the seventh just became available as a preorder. As this is the first volume, it is most likely the one any prospective reader will use to make a decision on whether to start reading the books I'll discuss it in light of the other volumes. I truly think all volumes are equally well written as to characters, plots, dialogue, story and keeping the reader's interest. Superb in all factors. I started the first on June 10 and just finished the sixth today (22 June). This is not to brag about reading speed but to indicate how well each and every volume kept my interest although they were read consecutively. Whatever I say concerning this volume applies equally for all. In the first place, these are not mere rehashes of the 7 years of TV shows. While there may be slight overlap with the TV shows (e.g, a ring shaped bruise found during autopsy, a murder involving an adult sex club, etc.) I found no books borrowing so closely from the TV shows as to make them repetitions of each other. I guess I'm saying you should read this volume to see if it holds your interest. If so, you'll most likely enjoy any or all of the others - even if you have been following the TV series. While both characters {Rook - Castle and Nikki Heat - Det. Beckett] are in all of the book they are told from HER prospective [hey, she's the detective and the one most involved in all of the action] with his part being supportive. As indicated, there is violence and sexual content but not Marquis De Sade nor Penthouse. All is tastefully described and none spurious to the plot's/narrative's progression. If you like the TV episodes, I know you'll be interested in the books. If not. I still think you'll like there books.

As a fan of the TV show, I thought it was cute and fun that the fictional character of Richard Castle is being used as a real writer. I wouldn't be a true fan if I didn't read his made-up novels. I read the Storm novels and thought they were entertaining. I decided to read the first Nikki Heat novel and was a wee-bit disappointed. But all in all it was still very entertaining. There were a few 'dry' (filler) chapters and then there were a few suspenseful moments, pretty much like the TV show. I literally pictured Stana and Nathan in every chapter and the full cast of Castle. I believe that is the reason I still found it entertaining to read. And since the show is over I felt it helped fill the gap in my life without Castle (????)

Not sure I will continue reading the rest since I find the price on amazon kindle a bit high for a fictional writer's novel. There are 9 books in the series of which 1 thru 7 cost $7.99 while 8 & 9 cost $12.99 & $14.99 respectively. I think these prices are absurd since Richard Castle is not a real writer. The real people who write the novels are talented but nothing like Stephen King or Greg Isles or John Grisham. (To name a few).

That's it I guess in a nutshell: entertaining like the series, humorous and somewhat suspenseful like trying to solve a crime.

What can I say? My wife got me hooked on the TV show Castle: The Complete First Season. I bought all the Castle books over the past year for my wife (to include the Derek Storm short stories & the first graphic novel as well) or so. I figured it was time for me to take the plunge and actually read a Nikki Heat story, and I am glad I did.

While reading Nikki Heat I couldn't help but picture the characters from the TV show in my mind. Different? Yes, but darn close as well. Several readers have asked if they NEED to watch the TV show to enjoy the Nikki Heat stories. I would say you don't "need" to, but it sure helps. If you watch the show, you'll pick up on lines from the show and see how the characters think and act. I would say it is like watching the Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery [HD] movies without first having watched the James Bond movies (like Dr. No [HD]) that they are making fun of. Sure you can still laugh at the antics of Powers, but to truly get the gags, it helps to have seen the movies that he is making parodies of.

The bottom line is that I enjoyed reading this thriller and will plan on reading the other Nikki Heat stories. My wife has them all on her Kindle, and I'll just get them delivered to my Kindle.

On Christmas Day I got my wife the 3 Derek Storm short stories, and I have already downloaded the 1st Derek Storm short story to my Kindle: A Brewing Storm: A Derrick Storm Short and will start this story today.

A few days ago Sue Grafton, one of the finest mystery writers of my lifetime, passed away. Seeing the news of her passing reminded me that I had not read a novel in several years. "Heat Wave" has been sitting in my Kindle library since the week it first became available, so I opened it and started reading.

Richard Castle is not a real person, of course, so my expectations were not high. When the day arrives that computer AI become published writers their stories will be very much like this one: shallow, moderately entertaining, rife with cliches.

By the same token, it will do for now.
