A Calm Before Storm is a novel in the Derrick Storm series by Richard Castle.


Derrick Storm is looking forward to finally getting out of the game – stocking up his cabin cruiser and heading out into the open Atlantic for good. But his plans are put on hold when, on the eve of a UN summit, the severed head of a Russian diplomat is found bobbing in the backwaters of the Hudson. Storm’s CIA handler, Clara Strike, enlists him to crack a plot of global proportions, pitting the uncanny PI against a legion of Eastern Bloc mercenaries, and an ex-KGB hit-man known simply as “The Fear.” [1]
