and I'm staying cool inside reading my Richard Castle books. Actually, their style is very James Patterson, but who knows - they might be a collaboration between Patterson, Michael Connelly and Stephen Cannell (RIP) who are the fictional Castle's writing buddies. That being said, they're quite good - almost as good as Castle itself. It's transparent who the books' characters are - even though Castle (or whoever) has marginally changed their names. Nice, light summer reading - murder, mayhem and New York cops on the case - with a bumbling journalist along for the ride, who just happens as it turns out, to moonlight as a writer of bodice-ripper romances. I didn't see that coming. Heat Wave is better than Naked Heat - and they should be read in order for continuity's sake. Personally, I prefer the television series - but that's just me. The next installment in the Nikki Heat series comes out in December - but my cheap self is waiting for the paperback.
