The ABC show “Castle” has been off the air for awhile, but the Richard Castle mystery books continue. (The books are published under the pen name of the drama’s fictional star, who played a crime-fighting mystery writer.)
In “Heat Storm” (Disney Book Group, $26.99), Nikki Heat’s mother Cynthia, presumed dead for 17 years, has resurfaced to warn Nikki about the still-pertinent threats that caused her to go into hiding in the first place. Meanwhile, CIA spy Derek Storm discovers clues related to Cynthia’s aggressors while trailing a nefarious group of Chinese businessmen in Shanghai.
Almost makes you wish “Castle” hadn’t been canceled.
