Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
HEAT WAVE is a tie-in to the ABC primetime show, CASTLE, that premiered in March 2009. The main character of the show, Richard Castle, is a bestselling mystery writer. HEAT WAVE is his next book: Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the wildly best-selling Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki Heat carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City's top homicide squads. She's hit with an unexpected challenge when the commissioner assigns superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook to ride along with her to research an article on New York's Finest. Pulitzer Prize-winning Rook is as much a handful as he is handsome. His wise-cracking and meddling aren't her only problems. As she works to unravel the secrets of the murdered real estate tycoon, she must also confront the spark between them.
We will be making the first ten chapters (approximately) available for digital download from ABC.com over the summer to coincide with the repeat schedule of the show. Then, in the fall, the entire book will be published as a trade paperback. We will be working with ABC Marketing to publicize the downloads and the book.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 17reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Page turner The mystery of this book was a good one...an executive plummets from his apartment in what turns out to be a homicide, and the suspect list is ever growing. But, while there were numerous unexpected twists and turns, some of the more minor details (i.e. character descriptions) seemed to be added simply for sizzle instead of adding anything to the book. Overall, though, it was a good book 11/03/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Heat Wave Review This book was entertaining. Not a children's book by any means, but I enjoyed reading and seeing how the story unfolded. I couldn't help, but compare it to it's counterpart, the television series on ABC, Castle. It wasn't quite as light or quick witted as the TV show. It came across as a tad darker. The main male character was the biggest difference between the book and the TV show that I could tell. On TV, he comes across as cute and sexy, but in the book he seems a bit more lifeless. Not a classic, but over all, I give it a thumbs up. 11/05/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by "The First Item I Ordered on Walmart.Com" This is the first item I have ordered on Walmart.com. It is one of the few websites I found this book available on. Walmart.com has the best price of any other website or retail store I could find. I honestly have not finished reading "Heat Wave". However, I have no doubt I will love it as I love the weekly series, "Castle"! My husband and I never miss an episode! I am thrilled with the service from Walmart.com! Great prices, great delivery service, great product! 12/22/2009

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent reading If you have ever heard of the series Castle then you will want to read this book. This is the book that the character Richard Castle is actually writing about the detective that he's shadowing. The book is great. The series is even better. A must have book. 05/06/2010
