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. ( )

It was a lot like an episode of the show. Some awkward writing in spots, but a good mystery. ( )

And Nathan's picture is on the jacket! (FanGirl giggling)

Not the tightest of mysteries, but the character work is solid- how strange must that be: to write as if you are the character of Castle thinly disguising the "people" you have shadowed. The meta-ness can astound you, if you get too deep.
But you can hear the characters' voices (especially Rook/Castle/Nathan/Cap'n Mal), and that is my most important measure of a book.
But, oh, dear- if I were "Detective Beckett", I'd be torn between kickin' Castle's butt for some of the things he's written, and getting all hot and bothered for some of the (dear lord, here comes a pun) HEAT generated between Rook and Heat. ( )

I bought this because I like the Castle tv series and wanted to see the book that began it all. Let me say, I think the TV series far surpasses the voices in my head. The dialogue is flat and uneven. ( )

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.
