This was an ok book. Murder, art, chemistry...
Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook are ok but I actually like Kate Beckett and Richard Castle better. ( )

I actually really enjoyed this book but I think that's because it was written like an extended episode of Castle. "Richard Castle" did a very good job of projecting himself and and Beckett into the characters of the book. Aside from the connection to the TV show (which I loved, by the way), I think this was a fairly solid piece of work for the genre. ( )

Some books are good for reading during television commercials. That is not a bad thing, since commercials now days give us 3 to 5 minutes to fill every 10 minutes or so and I would rather read something interesting than watch ads that I just watched 15 minutes ago. So I have started on the Castle spinoff novel series. They are a nice conceit, allowing fans of the show to inhabit the world set up. These are even better than the books using the series characters. Even so, while reading, I compared the characters on the show with the characters in the book. It is easy to see why books can be called semi-autobiographical.
This initial book in the series serves to set up the characters. We get the basic background for the team and the interloper, the writer, and the whys of their collaboration. The murder mystery is cunningly confusing, and the solution worth the trip. I especially liked that the clues, while plentiful and direct, kept that solution hidden until the end of the book. ( )

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.
