Note: This is part of my ongoing reviews of the Castle television show’s seasons, the books written by “Richard Castle”, and some events related to the show. For the parent post with links to all of these, please click here.
This is the second real Derrick Storm novel to be published under the author’s name of Richard Castle – the fictional character on the TV show Castle. When the show opened Richard Castle was the popular author of a series of thrillers that all had the main character of Derrick Storm. He was just publishing his final Storm book, though. He had killed off the character since he was bored with him. He soon got an inspiration for a new character of Nikki Heat, an NYPD detective based on the Detective Beckett character he was working with on the TV show. During the course of the show we have seen the Castle character write six Nikki Heat novels.
