New York City. Summer. It’s hot and muggy and Richard Castle, the bestselling mystery writer has fallen into another mystery even as he scrambles to finish his Nikki Heat novel. As usual, Castle is procrastinating – and this summer he has a shiny new toy to play with thanks to his daughter, Alexis, who has made the mistake of introducing her father to Twitter.
While the Castles vacation in The Hamptons, a foot washes up on the beach. The police think it’s a shark attack but Castle, as usual, thinks it might be something more. And now he has put himself in the middle of the investigation, tweeting his theories as he goes. The police are amused, but could he be right?
To quote the master of mystery, Sherlock Holmes, himself, “The game’s afoot!” And for the next six weeks, fans will be able to give Castle advice, eavesdrop on his family and affairs – and maybe help him solve his new mystery!
Richard Castle’s Twitter handle is @WriteRCastle or visit http://twitter.com/WriteRCastle. There is also a link to his Facebook page, so fans will be able to see how this famous creator of Murder, Mystery and the Macabre spends his time away from the precinct.
“Castle” airs Mondays (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on ABC. The second season of Castle premieres on September 21, 2009.
