NYPD Homicide Detective Nikki Heat gets more mystery than she imagined when she arrives at her latest crime scene. The body of an unidentified woman has been found stabbed to death and stuffed inside a suitcase left sitting on a Manhattan street. A startling enough death, but an even bigger shock comes when this new homicide surprisingly connects to the unsolved murder of Detective Heat's own mother. The gruesome killing of this Jane Doe launches Heat on a dangerous and emotional investigation, rekindling the cold case that has haunted her since she was nineteen. Paired once again with her romantic and investigative partner, top journalist Jameson Rook, Heat works to solve the mystery of the body in the suitcase while she also digs into unexplored areas of her mother's background-areas Nikki has been afraid to confront before, but now must.

Facing relentless danger as someone targets her for the next kill, Heat's search will unearth painful family truths, expose a startling hidden life, and cause Nikki to reexamine her own past. Heat's passionate quest takes her and Rook from the back alleys of Manhattan to the avenues of Paris, trying to catch a ruthless killer. The question is, now that her mother's cold case has unexpectedly thawed, will Nikki Heat finally be able to solve the dark mystery that has been her demon for ten years?

Frozen Heat pops with clever twists while keeping the characters realistic, flawed but lovable. Life with the jet-setter writer has its perks so the plot, while magical, is plausible. As local crimes are solved, tenacles of evidence that reach back to a decades old cold case worm their way into current puzzles of international intrigue. Hints of a compelling sequel tease the reader. Fellow mystery-crime readers are saying: We want more!

I have enjoyed all the Nikki Heat books. I, of coarse, see the (TV) characters, Richard Castle and Detective Beckett, as I read. I love the show as well as all the books and recommend them all.

I liked the way thus series cimbines a touch of comedy with mystery. This one definatley followed the " Castle" tv series theme. I could imagine each of the characters in the show playing out the parts. This book also had me guessing and changing my mind on the "who done it." The end keeps you wanting more.

I've been highly entertained with all the Niki Heat books. I think this one was the best so far.

I would highly recommend this book for any fans of the Richard Castle books or the "Castle" tv series. This is probably the most interesting of the books written so far, and details of the principal character's past and their complex evolving relationship make this an enjoyable read. For followers of the television series, the comparison/contrast of the characters of Nikki Heat and Jameson Rook with Kate Beckett and Richard Castle provides a very interesting diversion as well. Hope that will be another Nikki Heat book,becuse it getting better & better.

If you enjoyed the other books in the series, you'll enjoy this one as well. Each one gets better. I am enjoying these books as much as the tv series. and can't wait for the next one to come out.

I liked reading this because I could just imagine the Richard Castle character on the Castle TV series writing it. You know his stuff is schlock and everyone loves it. What I didn't like is that this was just one part of a 3-part series. Just as it gets really interesting, you have to wait for the next part, which doesn't come out for months.

When Nikki arrives at her newest case, she's puzzled by how the woman wound up in a freezer truck. But then she finds a clue that links this woman with the cold case of her mother's murder. Will she finally solve that mystery as well as solving this current one? As a fan of the show, I was surprised they went here before they resolved the parallel plot on the show. But fans don't need to worry because this book goes off in a completely different direction. There are lots of twists to keep you entertained. Sadly, the writing is still poor, but you can still get through it.

Love how it follows the main characters from one book to the next. Really enjoy the incidents they get into and trying to figure the plot before the end of the book.
