Bond or Beckett? That is the question.
Castle is up for the job of reviving the Bond novel series. One slight problem: This new book deal would end his partnership with Beckett, who hides her disappointment well. But Castle's potential departure hits her hard at the launch party for HEAT WAVE, where the two of them bicker like an old married couple.
But alas, Castle and Bond are not meant to be. HEAT WAVE is a hit, and the publisher quickly offers Castle a three-book deal. That means he will be partners with Beckett indefinitelyâ€¦much to her insincere chagrin.
