Just like watching "Castle" on TV. The books read like a television show, but not strictly as a script. The scenes are described completely, the characters are well-written and the storylines unique enough not to get boring or trite. Though, as with most mysteries, there is a certain amount of predictability. Overall easy, enjoyable read.
If you are a Nathan Fillon fan, once again, comments/remarks reminding one of his cancelled TV show, Firefly, make an appearance.
