Not as good as the television show, but worth looking into reading the next book in the series ( )

Mest rolig för att det är Richard Castle från tv-serien Castle som har skrivit boken. Kanske inte hade uppskattat den lika mycket om jag inte hade tittat på tv-serien. ( )

Homicide Detective Nikki Heat has been saddled with Jameson Rook as a 'ride along' on her daily investigation. It's bad enough that it is a blistering summer and it seems that her case load isn't light, but to have a wise-cracking, meddleson, handsome guy following her along is just about too much.

Rook is doing research on NYPD for an upcoming article. Being a Pulitzer Prize winner, he immerses himself in his research. The problem with that is he is not a cop and doesn't know beans about procedure. Real police work is not like you see on TV or read in a book.

The murder of a high profile real estate tycoon is the focus of Heat's current assignment. Investigating turns up some surprises about the man's life, along with some names that could be seriously interested in seeing the man dead. His wife is one name high on the list.

While trying to unravel the threads of this mystery, Heat has to deal with Rook's wise-cracks, name dropping (Hendrix, Jagger, and others), references to the famous he has connections to, and the attraction to him she seems to be sensing. Is he sensing it too?

There is humour and action to be found in this book. Not just the two main characters, but also the supporting characters. It moves good and I am looking forward to reading more of this series. ( )

From TV's Castle, fictional character writes. Yay. ( )

Really enjoyable mystery read! Fun characters, sarcasm abounds. When I actually got time to read, I read through it pretty quick!
I recommend this 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.
