Richard "Rick" Castle is a fictional character portrayed by Nathan Fillion in the ABC crime series Castle.  It is interesting that although the show has been canceled, Nathan Fillion's picture remains on the dust jacket.  The joke continues

I'm not going to write a review on this, or the subsequent 6, until I have finished the entire series. Then I will review them all at once.

I have to say, this is my favorite out of this series so far.

Why do I read them, knowing they are just another mercy outlet for the show Castle? Because they are a fun and quick read; and I enjoy them.

Yes they have police procedure anthem, but it's not heavy in the weeds like a lot of other books in this genre. Being an easy read, in a genre I like, is sometimes a must after heavy hitting book or two.

I went into this knowing it was ABC's way of cashing in on the success of Castle. Therefore, I really wasn't expecting it to be much to 'write home about'; I was pleasantly surprised.

Although the writing is a bit sloppy in places, and the plot line can get lost in all the other stuff going on, I found it was the perfect read for a couple of stormy days, when I couldn't get much else done.

The latest tie-in novel for the Castle television show is pretty much exactly what you expect a tie-in to be. Therein lies my growing complaint.

While the stories and writing are pretty good, and this plot is (ultimately) one of the best so far, I am tiring of the Mary-Sue of it all. The 'real' Rick Castle would never write this book. In retrospect, he would have never written any of the Nikki Heat books. They are too on-the-nose reflections of his (fictional) life. These are books about Castle, rather than by (Richard) Castle.

The first two-thirds of the book moved pretty slow for me. Either it's chock full of too many introductions and traveling about, or I was just impatient. Either way, it seemed like it took forever to get through. But then things picked up and I liked how they wrapped things up.

Summary: Almost 4-stars for overall writing and plot. Marks off for some boring bits and for Mary-Sue (Ricky-Sue?).
