An intriguing murder mystery written by a fictional character from a television show, what could be more fascinating?
Narrator Robert Petkoff does a wonderful job giving voices to the numerous characters in author Richard Castle’s RAGING HEAT. Petkoff’s mannerisms enhances the story and adds depth to the characters. He brings out the highs and lows of each character’s reactions.
When a man mysteriously crashes through the roof the planetarium, NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat has her hands full. When a large sum of cash and a note leading to the commissioner of the Port Authority are found in the dead man’s room, things get really sticky.
Meanwhile, emotions between Nikki and her boyfriend, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jameson Rook, seem to be on a roller coaster ride. Nikki is happy to have him back after his extended assignment, but he seems to be working against her on this case.
As Nikki gets closer to getting answers, the closer she comes to being the killer’s next victim. This killer is determined that no one stands in the way of him reaching his ultimate goal. Solving this case could cost Nikki her relationship with Rook or even her life. And if she didn’t have enough working against her, Hurricane Sandy is making its way to New York in time to add to her growing problems.
This is a fast-pace action adventure from the start to the finish. The New York setting pulls you in and the characters hold you spellbound. A delightful play off of the television show, Castle, RAGING HEAT will keep mystery lovers entertained throughout the story.
Readers/listeners don’t have to be fans of the Castle show to enjoy this tantalizing tale involving mercenaries, human trafficking, greed, murder, suspense, and blind ambition.
