“Nikki Heat is at it again. She comes upon the dead body of a famous journalist, only to find her nemesis, Rook, is already at the crime scene having found the body first. From here, the case just keeps getting better. This is Castle at his best.”
–Stephen J. Cannell, New York Times bestselling author
When New York’s most vicious gossip columnist, Cassidy Towne, is found dead, Heat uncovers a gallery of high-profile suspects, all with compelling motives for killing the most feared muckraker in Manhattan. But Heat’s murder investigation is complicated by her surprise reunion with superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook. In the wake of their recent breakup, Nikki would rather not deal with their raw emotional baggage. But the handsome, wise-cracking writer’s personal involvement in the case forces her to team up with Rook anyway. The residue of their unresolved romantic conflict and crackling sexual tension fills the air as Heat and Rook embark on the search for a killer among celebrities and mobsters, singers and hookers, pro athletes and shamed politicians. This new, explosive case brings on the heat in the glittery world of secrets, cover-ups, and scandals.

This is such a treat to the fans! I was kept guessing who the killer was to the very end. So if you want an interesting mystery novel with an easy-read-feel-good kinda mix, then I’d say grab a copy of this now. Richard Castle is brilliant! ~miSyel
