A Brewing Storm (Short Story)


Famous writer Richard Castle resurrects international super-spy Derrick Storm in this short story, Storm's first adventure since Storm Fall.

This is the first instalment in a three-part series of short stories, or novellas.


From Amazon.com: When Derrick Storm needed to leave the CIA, he couldn't just retire. He had to fake his own death. So when his former boss calls in an old favor that will bring Storm out of early retirement and back to Washington to investigate a high-profile kidnapping, he knows there must be more at stake than the life of a senator's son. Working alongside, but not exactly with, bombshell FBI investigator April Showers, Storm must make sense of a confusing flurry of ransom notes and a complicated web of personal relationships and international politics. He'll get to the bottom of the kidnapping, but the storm is still brewing . . .
