Nikki Heat and Derrick Storm, New York Times bestselling author Richard Castle's most enduring and beloved characters, team up for the first time to save Nikki's mother, Cynthia, who has been in hiding (and presumed dead) for 17 years. Standing in their way is a nefarious group of Chinese businessmen kwn as the Shanghai Seven, who have the resources-and ruthlessness-to stop them.
RICHARD CASTLE is the author of numerous bestsellers, including Heat Wave, Naked Heat, Heat Rises, Frozen Heat, Deadly Heat, Raging Heat, Storm Front, Wild Storm, and Driving Heat, and the Derrick Storm ebook original trilogy.

Mr. Castle lives in Manhattan with his family, all of whom infuse his life with humor and inspiration.
