The latest "Richard Castle" book Deadly Heat didn't disappoint. When I sat down and started reading it, I didn't do anything else that wasn't necessary until I finished. So I will state that up front. The character ensemble is very cohesive, like a family.

Richard Castle Frozen Heat ONE Oh, yeah, that’s it, Rook, said Nikki Heat. A trickle of sweat rolled down his neck to his heaving chest. He groaned and bit down on his tongue. Don’t stop yet. Keep it going. Yes. She hovered over him, lowering her face just inches from his so she could whisper. Work it just like that. ONE. Oh, yeah, that’s it, Rook, said Nikki Heat.

Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the wildly best-selling Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki Heat carries a passion for justice as she leads one of New York City's top homicide squads.

Hot on the heels of Richard Castle's #1 New York Times bestseller Heat Rises comes the fourth novel in the Nikki Heat series, Frozen Heat. Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook are together again, facing an unsolved murder mystery that has haunted Nikki for ten years.

NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat arrives at her latest crime scene to find an unidentified woman stabbed to death and stuffed inside a suitcase left on a Manhattan street. Nikki is in for a big shock when this new homicide connects to the unsolved murder of her own mother. Paired once again with her romantic and investigative partner, top journalist Jameson Rook, Heat works to solve the mystery of the body in the suitcase while she is forced to confront unexplored areas of her mother's background.

Facing relentless danger as someone targets her for the next kill, Nikki's search will unearth painful family truths, expose a startling hidden life, and cause Nikki to reexamine her own past. Heat's passionate quest takes her and Rook from the back alleys of Manhattan to the avenues of Paris, trying to catch a ruthless killer. The question is, now that her mother's cold case has unexpectedly thawed, will Nikki Heat finally be able to solve the dark mystery that has been her demon for ten years?

I picked this one up, being a big fan of the Castle series as well as Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, as well as to drown out the silence on my son's first day of preschool. I really couldn't put it down!

The first 3 books in the series were quite good, and improves on rereads, which is difficult for a murder mystery novel. After all, if you already knew whodunit, what's the sense of reading again?

The sense is the characters are rich and the action is brilliant. I absolutely love Castle mainly for Detective Beckett, who is a wonderful, meaty character, and the novels increasingly capture it. Sure, there's dumb jokes and more than my fair share of cliches, but it kind of blends into the environment, and that they probably would be saying all those cliches if this were real life.

One of the beefs I have with this novel though (and consequently the removing of a star) is that Nikki Heat does something really stupid which hurts Rook and turns out badly for her. (Trying not to give spoilers). She takes offense at something stupid and just does something stupid in return. It seemed like a setup for some sort of crazy turmoil in their relationship or her sense of well being, and after its all said and done, it barely makes an impact in her life or their relationship. If a guy pulled a similar stunt on me then acted the way she did afterwards (before they 'made up'), I probably would walk away, no matter how much I cared. Seriously, it wasn't like super-huge-bad, but some major red flags would be up and I would have serious trust issues afterwards. And then it didn't matter, and they just moved on? Really hard to choke down that one. It was not cool!

The twists are really clever (while still being believable!) and the action is really fun and exciting. Everything else in the novel is superb. The excessive cop-lingo (and acronyms) that makes you feel like you're in a foreign country is quite toned down since the first novel, which is a big relief. I'll definitely go back and read it again, enjoying all the little nuances I missed the first time. Sure, there's a few things that you're like, "Why didn't she chase that particular lead down?" or, "Why doesn't she look there?" Or "She's walking into a trap! Wait for backup!" But you'll get that with almost every mystery novel or movie. (I think the trick is to not say it out loud when you're in the movie theater. ;)

And don't forget the serious cliffhanger. I got to the end and I was like, "Where's the rest?" It seemed like there should be another chapter or two. If cliffhangers bug you, wait until the next one is out and read them together. I certainly felt brought-up-short. I know at least one reviewer before wrote that it was "kind of a cliffhanger." No, its a serious, full-stop, mid-thought kind of cliffhanger. Not quite as bad as leaving off a person screaming in terror, but similar. Now we get to wait a whole year for the next part, oh goody. -.-

Anyway, have a lovely time reading this book. Definitely start with the rest of the series if you haven't read them yet, there's old characters to swim with along with new. (And watching the series does not count.) Also, if you like period mysteries, check out the Lady Julia Grey series by Deanna Raybourn. I don't think that one is quite popular enough for how good it is. :) Enjoy!

I really enjoyed the first 2 Nikki Heat books - couldn't put them down. But now, here I am on the 4th book and all I can say is that I have never seen a main character in a series change so drastically, and not for the good. I liked the Nikki Heat character in the first couple of books - tough, but fair and cautious, especially when it came to relationships. I came away from this book with a totally different description of Nikki Heat, and this is it: Me, me, me, me, me - it's all about me and you had better acknowledge that. Your feelings aren't important, just mine. I am the most perfect cop that ever walked the streets of New York, and the rest of my squad better bow down now (and ironically they do). My mother was murdered 10 years ago and I'm still treating it like it happened yesterday. Because the cops didn't solve the murder, they are all lazy, incompetent fools. They could never be as good as me - no one is. And, Rook, you can only adore and worship me, but I can be with whoever I want, whenever I want and have relationships with ex boyfriends, but you better not be friendly with your exes. And you have absolutely no right to be angry at me when you see the naked dead guy in my apartment and I won't explain it to you because you are not understanding that I had a bad day and life is all about me me me! Yikes. I don't know if I'll be able to get through the next one. What happened to this character - does the author want the readers to hate her??

This is the first of a two-part story. With the first three as background, this reader has developed the same sympathy for Nikki Heat as Kate Beckett. It is more easily visualized and felt if one allows the vision and expression of Beckett to come forward while reading. Both characters are attempting to find their mother's killer, but Nikki's has taken a decidedly more global reach with this story and will continue in the next "Raging Heat." I loved how this story climbed out of the streets of NY and the bull pen at the NYPD first to Rook's apartment, then to Paris, then back all along with Nikki's reticence in embracing some use of departmental politics to get what she needs. The end of this story is a tense surprise only to find the odd mixture of disappointment and happiness for the reader, that it's not over yet.
