Description

Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook race to stop a deadly threat from Heat's past as well as an all-too-present serial killer, in Richard Castle's follow-up to the New York Times best-seller Frozen Heat.

Determined to find justice for her mother, top NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat continues to pursue the elusive former CIA station chief who ordered her execution more than a decade ago. For the hunt, Nikki teams once again with her romantic partner, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Jameson Rook, and their quest for the old spy and the motive behind the past murder unearths an alarming terror plot, which is anything but ancient history. It is lethal. It is now. And it has already entered its countdown phase.

Complicating Heat's mission to bring the rogue spy to justice and thwart the looming terror event, a serial killer begins menacing the Twentieth Precinct, and her homicide squad is under pressure to stop him, and soon. Known for his chilling stealth, the diabolical murderer not only singles out Nikki as the exclusive recipient of his taunting messages, he names her as his next victim.

Can the heat rise much higher

If you could sum up Deadly Heat in three words, what would they be?

Great next installment

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sorry more than one

Would you listen to another book narrated by Robert Petkoff?

Yes but hope it will not be from this series. Nothing personal Mr. P

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

It just keeps getting hotter

Any additional comments?

GREAT follow up to the last book. This series always leaves me wanting more.....heat. Read other reviews about the book knocking the narrator. I can understand the comments but I do feel Petkoff did do a fine job with my only caveat being that Heller did a better job with the differences (voices) of the core ensemble. Why I do not know as the other characters in the book were affordered their own unique inflections, accents and well life. I do hope Mr. Heller will return for the next Installment of Nikki Heat as in other series read many times by a particular actor we learn to identify with the "sound" they have created for each character. That said I will be anxiously awaiting Mr. Castle's (who ever you are) next book either it be stormy or hot..

Narrator ruins the characters.

Would you try another book from Richard Castle and/or Robert Petkoff?

Another book by Richard Castle, YES. Another story by Robert Petkoff ..Probably not. I was eagerly awaiting this book. Very disappointed in the narrator. There is no voice difference between characters. It all just sounds like him "reading". Thank goodness I read the previous book and can still picture the different voices, so I still feel like I know the side characters as they are speaking.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert Petkoff?

I would have used the previous narrator, Johnny Heller. Some people didn't care for him, but at least the characters came alive while you were listening. There is a reason they call it a "performance".

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, once on dvd or cable.

Something's cooking

What did you like best about Deadly Heat? What did you like least?

I love the banter back and forth between characters and the family like feel I get from the interaction.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

5 minutes into the book and I was wanting Johnny Heller back. He did a better job of bringing the characters to life.

Was Deadly Heat worth the listening time?

If Johnny Heller were reading it!

Any additional comments?

Bring back Johnny Heller! LOL

Narrator

Peykoff is okay as a narrator but I think Heller does a better job overall.

Love the humor.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I really enjoy the humor in this series. I also like the fact that it keeps you on your toes and is not something that is easy to figure out.

A Fitting End to the Journey

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would definitely recommend it. Anyone who's a Castle fan will see the characters come through in the pages of the book and enjoy a satisfying conclusion to a storyline that run almost from the beginning of the series/book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's a close call, as all ways, between Rook and Heat, but I have to go with Rook. Rook's boyish enthusiasm over the crime as well as how his source connections are legion and always seem to give him some advantage that amazes and confounds Heat.

What three words best describe Robert Petkoff’s voice?

clear, modulated, fluent.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to and from work as well as fell asleep to it each night. I'm restarting it right away.

Any additional comments?

I loved the Acknowledgements and his thanks to the Castle characters and the actors themselves. Amusing Castle finish to a good read.
