Involvement with the NYPD

Castle started helping the NYPD solve crimes when he caught their attention as a suspect after several murders resembled scenes from his novels. After the case was solved Castle pulled in a favour from the mayor and was allowed to shadow Detective Beckett to do research for his book. After his first book was published Castle was considering taking on a new project but his publisher offered him a contract to write three more Heat novels.[4]

Nikki Heat Series

Castle gets the inspiration for Nikki Heat from New York City Detective Kate Beckett who he started shadowing, with his friend the Mayor's permission, after Detective Beckett questioned him regarding copycat murders taken from his previous works.

He has written two books in the series Heat Wave and Naked Heat and is working on the third.


In addition to his two marriages we've know Castle to be involved with several women including.

Castle has a fling with his first ex-wife Meredith but refers to her as a "Deep Fried Twinkie" (guilty pleasure that you can only have once in a while) and as a crazy person which prevents him from re-forming a serious relationship with her.[5]

Castle meets Ellie Monroe when he makes an appearance on Bobby Mann's talk show and she seduces him to try and get the lead role in the Heat Wave movie.[6]

When he appears in the New York Ledger's Ten Most Eligible Batchelor list Castle hooks up with #6 most eligible batchelorette #3 but during the date he's distracted by Beckett and the case they're working on so things don't work out.[7]

After watching Beckett hook up with Tom Demming Castle gets back together with his ex-wife Gina and they spend the Summer in the Hamptons together. They are still dating when they return.
