Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Richard Castle's newest novel, an illegal immigrant falls from the sky and NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat's investigation into his death quickly captures the imagination of her boyfriend, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jameson Rook. When he decides to work the case with Heat as his next big story, Nikki is at first happy to have him ride along. Yes, she must endure Rook's usual wild conspiracy speculations and adolescent wisecracks, but after reuniting following his recent assignment abroad, she's glad for the entertainment, the chance to bounce ideas, and just to be close to him again and feel the old spark rekindle. But when Rook's inquiry concludes that Detective Heat has arrested the wrong man for the murder, everything changes.
Balancing her high stakes job with a complicated romance has been a challenge ever since Nikki fell for the famous reporter. Now, her relationship lurches from mere complexity into sharp conflict over the most high-risk case of her career. Set against the raging force of Hurricane Sandy as it pounds New York, Heat battles an ambitious powerbroker, fights a platoon of urban mercenaries, and clashes with the man she loves. Detective Heat knows her job is to solve murders. She just worries that solving this one will be the death of her relationship.

This is a fun detective series....

written by unnamed author(s) using the pen name Richard Castle. It is a takeoff on the ABC detective series Castle with the main characters in the TV series being writer Richard Castle and NYC police detective Kate Beckett. The names of the main characters in the book series are NYC Detective Nikki Heat and magazine writer Jameson Rock. This 7 novel series is interesting, light and fun. Robert Petkoff narrates the series and does a great job. The novels are quite good, but do not in my opinion rate five stars. Raging Heat is the 6th book in the series.

- Wayne "I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!"

Good, but not as much fun as earlier efforts

There were large stretches of this story that I didn't particularly like where Rook and Heat are at odds and even the team of detectives are not working together well. I very much enjoyed the performance.
