I decided to read the Nikki Heat series because I loved the tv series Castle which is what these books are based around. I liked how the books are written as if Richard Castle had really written it with the dedication and such. The story was fast paced and suspenseful. These books are true t the series without just rehashing the tv show. They add something slightly different but equally as good to the world of Nikki Heat. ( )

I suspect this is the last Nikki Heat novel, and while that saddens me almost as much as the show ending, this was definitely a good story (and ending) to go out on. From here, Richard Castle writes his big non-fiction work about a powerful drug cartel leader, and he changes his career trajectory completely. (Good job to the ghost writer, who always made THIS series feel like something Castle would actually write.) ( )

Driving Heat is different from other of the Heat series by Richard Castle. The storyline is interesting and original, yet the writing style seemed to change, making it a little more difficult to read in one sitting, also there seemed to be a change in some of the language that the author uses. At spots, the storyline could use something to make it all fit better especially in the ending of the case, which made it seem as if something was missing or that the case(s) were never really solved.

The last thing Nikki Heat expected when she received her promotion to captain of the NYPD was how much the proud expression on Rook's face in the audience would make her want him.
