A Bloody Storm
A Derrick Storm Short
by Richard Castle
A BLOODY STORM (Hyperion; eBook Short; $2.99; August 7, 2012) by New York Times bestselling author Richard Castle picks up where A Raging Storm left off-just moments after Derrick Storm heard the loud crack of a gun coming from inside the car where FBI Agent April Showers is held captive. Now, just weeks after Storm was assigned to find out who kidnapped Matthew Dull, the stepson of a hated United States senator, he finds himself hot on the tail of an assassin in the midst of a complicated web of international relations.
Teaming up with a team of ghost CIA operatives, all of whom have faked their own death, Storm must track down sixty billion dollars worth of gold hidden somewhere years ago by the Russian KGB in the Molguzar mountains. Storm's loyalties are put to the test as the race to the gold culminates in a bloody mountaintop showdown. Just when it seems that their mission can't get any more complicated, Storm and Showers must find out the hard way that their assignment may not have been what they thought....
ABOUT THE SHOW: When viewers first met Richard Castle-a famous mystery novelist and divorced father raising his teenage daughter while being kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother-he was creatively blocked. But when the NYPD questioned him in connection with a series of murders staged to imitate crime scenes from his books, Castle found inspiration in Kate Beckett, a bright and aggressive NYPD homicide detective with a fascination for odd and offbeat cases stemming from the years-old unsolved murder of her own mother. Though they instantly clashed, sparks of another sort began to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle stepped in to help find the copycat killer. Once that initial case was solved, Castle and Beckett continued to investigate strange homicides in New York, combining Castle's writer intuition and Beckett's creative detective work.
Castle, which will premiere its fifth season on the ABC Television Network, stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan, Penny Johnson Jerald as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, with Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers. Castle is produced by ABC Studios. Andrew Marlowe is the show's creator/executive producer, along with executive producers Rob Bowman, David Amann, Laurie Zaks, and Armyan Bernstein.
