Perhaps no one could make this formulaic third Nikki Heat thriller-marketed as authored by Richard Castle, the fictional writer in the television series Castle-hold a listener's attention for more than 11 hours, but Johnny Heller's uninspired reading certainly falls short. The book centers on yet another feisty, sexy, maverick female police detective and a sensational murder-this time of a New York City priest-with wider implications. In his narration, Heller's emotional range is limited: passages describing a fight or a brush with death sound virtually identical to low-octane sections of the book. Additionally, Heller's use of accents is inconsistent, and his plodding delivery does nothing to add drama to the book's climax. Given that the protagonist is a woman, hiring a male narrator was a gamble-and one that doesn't pay off in this case. A Hyperion paperback. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
