Steven James is one of the nation’s most innovative storytellers—with a Master of Arts in Storytelling degree to prove it. For the past decade, he has been crafting compelling and evocative stories that pull readers into the thick of his brilliant, mind-bending plots, and his latest creative endeavor is no different: The Knight, the third installment in his bestselling series of thrillers, is full of the chilling twists and adrenaline-laced action that readers have come to expect from James.
The Knight picks up in The Bowers Files series, starring FBI criminologist Patrick Bowers, who is assigned to tracking the country’s most dangerous killers. But when he is called to his most disturbing crime scene yet, Bowers begins to realize that this criminal mastermind has actually been tracking him.
To get to the bottom of this cold-blooded case, Bowers uses his cutting-edge investigative techniques to decipher the evidence and discovers that the murderer has been using an ancient manuscript as a blueprint for his crimes. This sends Bowers on a race against time to stop the killer before he takes his next victim in another grisly crime.
But even as he is working to crack the clues of this bloody trail, Bowers finds himself stumped by another matter: An old murder case haunts him, causing him to question himself and wonder which is more important—truth or justice. The answer might set a killer free or change Bowers into a criminal himself.
Gripping – that’s my word to describe Steven James’ newest thriller, The Knight. The first sentence sets the stage…
“The sad, ripe odor of death seeped from the entrance to the abandoned mine.”
With bone-chilling detail, James describes the crime scenes, the hero’s struggles, and the calculated mind of the murderer. Don’t think you’ll have a chance to take a breath, at the very moment you relax, an unexpected twist sends the hero, Patrick Bowers, into another life-threatening or altering situation. Now don’t get me wrong, Steven James throws in a couple of side-stories too, a touch of romance, and a dash of humor – so if you want a fast-paced, page-turning, descriptive-so-you-taste-the-moment book, pick up The Knight.
