Murder mystery author Richard 'Rick' Castle's book, in which he kills off his bestseller series' hero, Derek Storm, is published. On that very day, NYPD detective Kate Beckett questions him about two murders in the exact style of his novels; on a lawyer Martin Fisk and a social worker, Alyson Tisdale. He's professionally flattered to have a copycat. Her boss, Captain Roy Montgomery, accepts his help as case consultant and teams them up, due to Castle being friends with the Mayor. Another copy killing follows. The evidence found by the police leads to the arrest of a fan, Kyle Cabot. Castle and his author friends decide the 'story' doesn't make sense and has a few holes in it, leading Castle to keep investigating, which he does brilliantly, as even Beckett must grudgingly admit.

Did You Know?


When Castle is guessing the "story" of why Beckett became a cop, he deduces that she's a Manhattanite because she's "not bridge and tunnel". 'Bridge and tunnel' is a phrase used in Manhattan that refers to the fact that to reach the city, citizens from the other boroughs have to commute over one of the numerous bridges into the city, or through the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels that run under the Hudson River.

When Castle is being held hostage by Harrison Tisdale, he is holding on to one of the cuffs of the handcuffs and the other cuff is attached to his wrist. After Castle knocks out Tisdale, he gives Beckett the cuffs when she asks him for them. He didn't have time to take off the other cuff between being kidnapped by Tisdale and Beckett asking him for the cuffs and we don't hear him unlock the other cuff in the alley. See more »
