This was a fun read- I really liked how it ties into the series. I like how the two leads really reflect the characters on the TV show, but have differences as well. ( )

Meta, like a meta-thing. Halfway through season 2 of Castle, I finally picked this one up. I'm not sure if I would think it was all that good if I were reading it in a vacuum - on some level it feels like it's trying to be one of J.D. Robb's "Death" novels and not succeeding - but it's not really meant to be read on that level. As a study, of Rick Castle writing about Beckett (et al) who you know in turn has *read* it, well, it's a wonderful layer of depth to add to the whole experience. ( )
