I saw that there were two new books at the library in the Richard Castle series so I was super excited to grab those. I find that I can't keep up with any series when I rarely look at the new release section but then I also run into the fact that things stay on the new release in our library system forever!!! I often look at the same book that I already read to see if I have read it. Do you ever do that?? Needless to say, I took High Heat (Nikki Heat) by Richard Castle out of the library and was pleased to find out later that I hadn't actually read it yet!!! It was actually a semi recent new release.
An ISIS-style beheading of a journalist, carried out by a New York City
group pledging fealty to that rogue state, becomes more than just
another case for NYPD Captain Nikki Heat when the killers announce their
next target: her husband, magazine writer Jameson Rook. Meanwhile, Heat
is haunted by a fleeting glimpse of someone she swears is her mother...
a woman who has been dead for nearly twenty years.
Super enjoyed this great book!! It was a great follow along to the television series and the books series already in progress. There are many things that are interesting to follow and the clues are laid out in a way that makes you wonder if they are going to figure out the mystery or what the missing piece is going to be to make the whole picture fall into place. Jameson Rook is always entertaining in the different trouble that he gets into and this was even worse because he is in the middle of the trouble. Nikki Heat is charged with trying to run the police precinct and protect her husband, Jameson Rook. There is an ISIS cell that is capturing journalists and beheading them and Rook was the next one named. This was a highly stressful problem but kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next. I enjoyed this series and the characters so I am hoping that there are going to be more of this good series even though the show is over.
