DUSTJACKET BLURB


Castle and Beckett get caught up in the mob-related murder of a priest, setting them loose in the worst part of the Bronx in the middle of the night, protecting a witness sans phones, guns, or plans. Meanwhile, their respective parents, set loose on each other with predictable results, find they may have more in common than anybody realised.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS

QUOTABLE QUOTES

  • Gates, a character at last
  • The flying tackle-hug, still with bound hands
  • MARTHA: It's to die for, literally. I call it "Death by Chocolate."
    CASTLE: Now given your baking experience, is that a prediction?

  • LEO: Great. You have an engineering degree or electronics experience?
    CASTLE: No, but I've seen every episode of MacGyver.
  • RYAN: Hey. Let me tell you something; Catholic school is like combat. Unless you’ve been there you don’t know.
    ESPOSITO: I have been there. In combat. And it’s way worse than some old lady.
  • CASTLE: (to himself) All right. Be inconspicuous. Just an average white guy, walking in the Bronx in the middle of the night. What could go wrong?
  • LEO: How did you get on to me?
    DOLAN: I wish I could say I figured it out, but Shakespeare over here made the call.
    CASTLE: (to Beckett) Once you made that comment about my mom enjoying baseball--I knew we were six months away from joking about that--I knew something had to be up.

OOPS
  • Unless this is a quirk of New York City Catholics, a priest would normally be referred to as "Father Mulcahy" or "Father", not "the Father".
