Heat Rises (Nikki Heat #3) by Richard Castle: Mini Book Review

Heat Rises (Nikki Heat #3)
by Richard Castle (Hee Hee, come on who really writes these)
Hyperion (HarperCollins)
ISBN: 978-1-4013-2443-8
Buy from Indigo

Description: Fast-paced and full of intrigue, Heat Rises pairs the tough and sexy NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat with hotshot reporter Jameson Rook in New York Times bestselling author Richard Castle's most thrilling mystery yet.
The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat's most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York's most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest level of the NYPD.
But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge, and out on her own as a target for killers, with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who's not a cop: reporter Jameson Rook. In the midst of New York's coldest winter in a hundred years, there's one thing Nikki is determined to prove: Heat Rises.

Mini Book Review:  I can't help myself I have to read all of these (and also eventually own them all in paperback) since I love Castle so much - plus come on its got a picture of Nathan Fillion on the back.  It's actually a pretty good story too with lots of twists and turns & most importantly the wonderful banter between the lead characters so prevalent on the TV show.  This has been my favorite of the book so far since their is a great deal more humor and more scenes with Ryan and Esposito - oops I mean Ochoa and Raley.  Also the storyline flows better and its less dime story novelish.  As usual I get a kick out of the Pop Culture references that are linked to the actors (e.g there is a mention that Heat would make a good Bond Girl & a mention of Rook looking like Mal Reynolds) and many of the plots used in various episodes of the show.  This is a must for fans of the show.

I borrowed this from Natasha, who borrowed it from her public library, and didn't have to review it -- just have to be a good fan girl and encourage you all to buy it
