Book Description from RichardCastle.net
The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club is just the tip of an iceberg that leads Nikki Heat to a dark conspiracy that reaches all the way to the highest level of the NYPD. But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge and out on her own with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who's not a cop. Reporter Jameson Rook.
In the midst of New York's coldest winter in a hundred years, there's one thing Nikki is determined to prove. Heat Rises.
Just like the last two Richard Castle books, this one stayed true to Richard Castle-style. The characters were just like their alter-egos from the hit TV show Castle. The murder plot was intriguing although a little story-bookish and over-dramatic, but isn't that just like Richard Castle? The fact that the priest was killed in a bondage club added some off-color moments throughout the book that I could have done without, but all-in-all, a fun, light, read.
