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.

Jessica Fletcher is better
14 March 2009 | by pensmanSee all my reviews

A crime novelist gets involved in a criminal investigation and has some friction with the detective in charge. So Jessica Fletcher is Castle and Kate Beckett is the town sheriff so to speak. Wow this is a novel (no pun intended, well maybe) twist. At least Jessica had some personality which is more than either lead in this series has. First the networks steal the premise of Psych and turn it into the Mentalist and now Murder She Wrote has morphed into Castle. Can a Monk rip off be far behind. Even the card game between Castle, Steven Cannell, and James Patterson was a steal from Two and a Half Men. Remember the Sean Penn episode? What happened to innovation and creativity? I guess it has migrated to USA and TNT. Maybe that's why they have Burn Notice and The Closer and Saving Grace and . . . well I am sure you get where this is going. I am not sure the 10 episodes will make it through the complete season but no doubt ABC will let fan, there must be one, watch the bulk of the shows online.
