The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that ABC television will promote the second season of Castle by publishing a mystery novel "written" by the series lead, Richard Castle (played by Nathan Fillion).
Titled Heat Wave, the first chapter will be available on ABC.com on August 10th. Additional chapters will be posted weekly for 10 weeks. The real author of the book has not been identified.
Castle premiered as a mid-season replacement for the network earlier this year. In the opening episode, a killer is staging murder scenes depicted in Castle's bestselling mysteries. He teams up with Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) to solve the crime. Later episodes have Castle and Beckett continuing to work together and bring a hint of romance between the two series leads.
The first season of Castle will be available on DVD September 22, 2009.
