New York police captain Nikki Heat is accustomed to dealing with murders, even those with no leads and no motives. However, when a coed is murdered on campus, Heat's husband is a suspect, making this case the most personal one yet. When Jameson Rook is given the honor to be a visiting professor at his alma mater, he can't pass up the opportunity to mentor burgeoning writers at his award-winning college newspaper. But shortly after his arrival on campus, a female reporter for the paper is found dead ... naked ...in Rook's bed. Dealing with betrayal from any man is not Nikki's style. She and Jameson have had plenty of conflicts during their complicated
relationship, but none like this. Is her husband keeping secrets, or can she really trust him? In order to find out, Nikki gives Jameson the benefit of the doubt and digs into his theory of a secret society within a secret society. What she finds puts her
investigative skills, and her marriage, to the test.
A New York real estate tycoon plunges to his death on a Manhattan sidewalk. A trophy wife survives a brazen attack. Mobsters and moguls trot out their alibis. And then, in the suffocating grip of a record heat wave, comes another murder. Mystery sensation Richard Castle, blockbuster author of the Derrick Storm novels, introduces his newest character, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat. Tough, sexy, professional, Nikki
Heat carries a passion for justice. When the commissioner assigns superstar magazine journalist Jameson Rook to ride along with her to research an article on New York's Finest, Rook turns out to be as much a handful as he is handsome. As Nikki works to unravel the secrets of the murdered tycoon, she must also confront the spark between them. The one called heat.
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. Desperate to ensure his safety, Heat tries to contact Rook, who is supposed to be writing a profile about independent presidential candidate Legs Kline, a sudden favorite for the White House. Except Rook is suddenly nowhere to be found.
But as if that one deeply personal case is not enough to plunge Nikki Heat's world into turmoil, there suddenly comes another. It begins when she catches a glimpse of a
street person who she swears is her mother—a woman who has been dead for nearly twenty years.
If New York Police captain Nikki Heat is acting like she's seen a ghost, it's for good reason. Her mother, Cynthia, presumed dead for seventeen years, has resurfaced, but the threat that made her go into hiding is as grave as ever. Halfway across the world, CIA superspy Derrick Storm, on the trail of a nefarious group of Chinese businessmen known as the Shanghai Seven, trips over a long-ago recording of one of Cynthia's phone calls. It seems Cynthia Heat’s past and the Shanghai Seven's present have merged. And so have the fortunes of two dogged investigators. Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm unite for the first time-and they'll need all their considerable skills to stop a villain who has the resources and ruthlessness to kill them both.
The bizarre murder of a parish priest at a New York bondage club opens Nikki Heat's most thrilling and dangerous case so far, pitting her against New York's most vicious drug lord, an arrogant CIA contractor, and a shadowy death squad out to gun her down. And that is just the tip of an iceberg that leads to a dark conspiracy reaching all the way to the highest level of the NYPD. But when she gets too close to the truth, Nikki finds herself disgraced, stripped of her badge, and out on her own as a target for
killers, with nobody she can trust. Except maybe the one man in her life who's not a cop: reporter Jameson Rook. In the midst of New York's coldest winter in a hundred years, there's one thing Nikki is determined to prove: Heat Rises.
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 over 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. 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.
