About the Book:

The game is on.

FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers’s cutting-edge skills are about to be pushed to the limit when a young woman is found brutally murdered in Washington DC. Her killers continue a spree of perfect crimes in the Northeast, but with nothing to link them to each other, Agent Bowers faces his most difficult case yet–even as his personal life begins to crumble around him.

The Bishop is a gripping, adrenaline-laced story for readers who are tired of timid thrillers. Strap on your seat belt and get ready for a wild ride.

My Review:
I’m going to start this review off with a small complaint: this is book 4 and now I want all the others in the Patrick Bowers series! Other than small minor complaint, I LOVED this suspense novel. Steven James’ writing style is astronomical! I was instantly captured and reminded of James Patterson thrills with Alex Cross mystery. WOW! 

From the start I was pulling into the twists and turns of amazing crime solving suspense. It was a feeling of HAVING and NEEDING to know RIGHT NOW what happens next. This was by far THE BEST suspense novel I’ve read. Patrick Bowers was a wonderful character full of depth and intensity. His love for his job and his stepdaughter was phenomenal! The spiritual messages are are strong through out the intense story. The differences between good and evil are portrayed perfectly through the characters and the plot. Patrick Bowers is most definitely the Alex Cross of the Christian genre! It takes the best of the best to top suspense king James Patterson in any genre and that’s exactly what Steven James did by ten million percent! 

So, I’m sure by my review you can guess that I want to give this 5 star book so many more stars than simply 5! The intensity of edge-of-your-seat emotions is worthy of recommendation-hands down-to everyone! I can’t wait for 2011 and the release of book 5-The Queen
