The Bishop

By: Steven James

In this book we are once again introduced to FBI special agent Patrick Bowers as he is once again on the case of mysterious murders. When the daughter of a prominent Washington official is brutally murdered Bowers is assigned to the case. As the killers continue on a rash of brutal killing Bowers has to use his considerable knowledge to try and stop these killers before they strike again. On top of this Bowers is trying to balance this heavy work load, teaching a class, and dealing with personal issues involving his stepdaughter Tessa. Can Bowers pull his personal life together and at the same time stop these killers before they have a chance to strike too close to home. Pick up this book and see if everything ends happily or will the killers get the last word.

This book was definitely a page turner. If you are faint of heart I would not recommend this book to you. The explanations and descriptions of the crime scenes may not be appropriate for everyone. If you are not into thrillers or suspense novels then this is not the book for you. The only thing about this book that made it hard for me to read was the constant switch from first person to third person as the story unfolds. Once I got beyond this and into the story it kept me hooked until the end and I am looking forward to the next book in the Bowers' thriller series.

Available August 2010 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
