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 20 years.

"Lame story plus excessively politically correct"
High Heat is Novel #8 in the Detective Nikki Heat series. I've listened to all 8 and this is the only one to qualify as UTTERLY PATHETIC. This series is a spinoff of the Castle TV show with Rook being Castle and Heat being Beckett. Some of the earlier books in the series are fun listens. This one is not. The left wing political correctness is the most disappointing part of this novel. It is grossly excessive. I suppose it is what one should expect from Disney - ABC during a national election.
The ending sets up a future novel either in the Nikki Heat or Derrick Storm series.
"Sorry I Purchased"
Such a disappointing read. Propaganda at ever turn. I read for entertainment our education and this was neither.
I would like to thank ABC for having this series of books based on the TV series Castle. High Heat keeps you the reader on the edge of your seats and, rooting for the lead characters Nikki and Rook.l can't wait for the next book.
Okay, the underlying story arc is really starting to seem like a circle...
The main story line was decent, but the continuing mother drama is getting very thin and a little dry.
Overall I enjoyed the book for what it was, a little cheesy and performed with the same tongue in cheek humor I expected. However, I would like to see the dead horse buried,
I think this story was awesome I think the writer is James Patterson I have always been curious as to who the real Richard castle is . Anyway I can't wait for the next. Storm story who ever you are. I love your imagination.
I made a big mistake buying this book...wow so big...bad bad bad...
not be so damn political and left leaning
he was fine
I have enjoyed most of Richard Castle's books. This one is not as good as I was hoping for another addition in the Heat series. I'm hoping the next will be better.
