    Rating: ★★★★★


Turn off the phone, tell the kids there is cereal in the pantry, the latest installment in “The Bowers Files” brings another eagerly awaited suspense thriller.

Christy Award winner Steven James does it again in his fifth Patrick Bowers thriller The Queen. FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers is working a case in rural Wisconsin when he realizes there is much more to investigate than originally thought. While investigating a double homicide Bowers uncovers a high-tech conspiracy that ties the Cold War with present day Middle East.

Steven James is definitely one of my top five favorite authors. The Queen will have you turning pages late into the night. It is a heart stopping, fast paced, must read thriller for 2011.

Each of “The Bowers Files” stand alone as great books, but if you would like to start from the beginning begin with The Pawn, The Rook, The Knight, and The Bishop.

I do want to warn readers this book contains violence and graphic descriptions of disturbing crime scenes. It is not for the faint-of-heart who may be offended by such written images. For more on this topic, please read Steven James’ blog article entitled “Why I Write about Evil” .

“Available September 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.”
