Presumably the second to last of the Nikki Heat books that tied into the television series Castle, as this book leads into a crossover with the Derrick Storm character. The brutal execution of a journalist by a jihadist group is made personal for the police captain as her new husband is declared the next target for the group in this book, with plot twists and gallows humour along the way as the story unfolds.

Fairly intense storyline but????? what's with the ending? Will there be a follow-up book?

I guess I am losing my sense of humor. Somehow, the juxtaposition of a young woman being brutally murdered (very graphic sawing off of the still attached head following a botched beheading) and witty repartee just didn't work for me.
