Kate Beckett is a homicide detective in the NYPD. She asks Rick Castle to help her with the case of a copy-cat killer staging murders based on scenes from his novels, and is the inspiration for Rick's new novel character, Nikki Heat.

When we first meet Beckett, she is very straightforward, conservative, and cold; however she lightens up after spending time with Rick. She resigned from the NYPD after hiding important case information from Captain Gates with Detective Esposito.

Castle Quotes

Oh, absolutely not! You will not and do you know why? Because you're a fighter. What have you always told me? No one will give you anything in this life. You must earn it and look at you. Almost 20 years later and you're back on Broadway. You have earned this.

Rick Castle

To bravery, to commitment, to love, to sacrifice.
