Why Read Richard Castle Book Series in Order?

As if that isn't strange enough, this fictional author has some very cool friends - the Castle poker buddies - who just happen to be world famous authors in real life. The thriller and mystery writers who have appeared on Castle include James Patterson, Steven J. Cannell, Dennis Lehane, and Michael Connelly.
