Castle is one of my favorite shows on television, so when the show bled over into a real-life book, I was intrigued.  Heat Wave, written by the fictional main character of the show, Richard Castle, is a New York City detective story. 

 An easy read, this is a great book if you like murder mysteries.  You don’t have to know anything about the show to read the book.  When a Donald Trump-like gazillionaire in New York City is thrown from his 6th story balcony, Detective Nikki Heat is on the case.

Like every good murder mystery, all of the characters are suspects in the murder.  Just when you think you’ve got it figured out, there is an art heist thrown in the mix.

 Of course, I can’t tell you much about the book without giving it away, but I can tell you that this is would be a good summer read.  Afterall, it is called Heat Wave.
