I thought this was a well paced, wittily written mystery, as was the first book.
For people who are looking for an episode of the the TV series in which the supposed author is a character, you have missed the point. This is a story with it's own characters. Yes, you can see similarities, but they aren't supposed to be the same!
A fun read, a fun listen. If you like the show, you will find a few in jokes as well.

A complete sleeper for me -- never heard of the book, never heard of the author (whom I now understand is a fictional character), never seen the television show or listened to anything else the narrator had read. But something in the blurb appealed to me, so I went for it. Good deal. It's a very good book, made even better by the narrator, Johnny Heller. Not only does Heller perform perfectly, but he has a voice that's pure pleasure to listen to. He sounds vaguely familiar, but I can't quite place it -- a bit like Peter Falk, maybe? Anyway, very nice voice quality.
As for the book, there's plenty of action, interesting characters with a requisite amount of quirky personality characteristics, nobody comes off as obnoxious -- except for the bad guys (or girls) -- and lots of moments when you find yourself listening way beyond the allotted time.
Nothing profound here, just a good, enjoyable "I want more" book to enjoy -- I suspect I'll listen to this one more than once. It's one of those books that's sufficiently interesting that it really doesn't matter if you know who did it or not. The trip is worth it, all by itself.

I found this to be an interesting book, mainly because of the little winks to, and echoes from, the TV series CASTLE and the constant references in the series to certain pages of this particular book. If you don't know the series, I am not so sure what you will make of it..

If you are a fan of Castle you'll surely love the book series written by that ruggedly handsome writer, the names may be different but this is the same a tale of Beckett and Castle through and through albeit with a unique and different flare that makes it compelling to read or in this case listen to
