Picking up where Frozen Heat left off, top NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat pursues the elusive former CIA station chief who ordered the execution of her mother over a decade ago. For the hunt, Nikki teams once again with her romantic partner, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jameson Rook, and their quest for the old spy and the motive behind the past murder unearths an alarming terror plot—which is anything but ancient history. It is lethal. It is now. And it has already entered its countdown phase. Complicating Heat's mission to bring the rogue spy to justice and thwart the looming terror event, a serial killer begins menacing the Twentieth Precinct and her homicide squad is under pressure to stop him, and soon. The frightening murderer, known for his chilling stealth, not only has singled out Nikki as the exclusive recipient of his taunting messages, he then boldly names his next victim: Detective Heat.
Fun, these just keep getting better and better. As a Castle fan, I enjoy the compilations. Nothing too heavy but just enough twist and turns to keep it entertaining for a commute home on the NYC MTA. Just one thing, and it’s just me. As a real NY’er I know when city details are off. But still nice to know the locations are real which adds to the richness at least for me. Would be nice if they developed the other characters a bit more and their connection to Heat.
