Beckett is shown reading an advance copy of "Heat Wave". In reality the book was released on September 29, 2009, with an unknown author using the name "Richard Castle". The author's notes are written in-character and authors James Patterson and Stephen J. Cannell, who appear in the series, wrote promotional blurbs as though Castle were a real fellow author. "Heat Wave" debuted at #26 on the New York Times bestseller list. See more
