Yesterday, while I was at the bookstore yesterday I spotted Heat Storm. It's a Nikki Heat/Derek Storm crossover and it seems pretty interesting. Since I have not read any of the Derek Storm books, I hope this is written in a way to familiarize the character with readers such as myself who have not read any of the books. I'm going to have to add this to my wishlist.
Book: Heat Storm (Nikki Heat book #9) by Richard Castle
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 known as the Shanghai Seven, who have the resources-and ruthlessness-to stop them.
