If I did not love the show Castle so much, I do not think I would have even finished the book. The mystery was uninteresting.

With that being said, I LOVE the show Castle and loved every second of this book! It was great seeing the characters in the show...and the acknowledgements in the book were even written from "Castle's" point of view. I loved the little tidbits like that.

To sum up, love Castle and you'll love this book. Never seen Castle or hate Castle, it is not even worth considering reading this book. ( )

The reason to read this book is because you like the TV series. It's very much a fluff book, kinda what you're led to expect from the character of Richard Castle. I have a hard time reviewing this one, since the author is fictional. I think I'd probably rate it 3.5, because it's supposed to be a mediocre book written by a popular author who would sell books no matter how poorly they were written. The writing isn't stellar, but it's not supposed to be. How do you rate that? I enjoyed the read, for what it was. And there was never a point while reading it where I considered putting the book down and leaving it unfinished. However, for me, one of these books is enough. I don't need to read any others in the series. ( )

Great book. Definitely what I expected from what the show is like. I love the show and make a point to watch it every week. It does have a bit of a slow start, but once things get rolling its hard to put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the next book 'Naked Heat.' ( )

This started off slow and then, all of a sudden, AMAZING. ( )

It was always the same for her when she arrived to meet the body.
Nikki paid attention to nags because they were the voices God gave to clues.
