mary's book basket ~ "the bishop" by stephen james...

If you are looking for a heart stopping, fast paced thrill ride, then look no further. Have I got a book for you. As a fan of thriller/suspense novels I am always so excited to come upon a new author. Steven James new release "The Bishop" is the next installment in his thriller series following FBI agent Patrick Bowers as he hunts for a pair of murderers.

Product Description:
FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers's cutting-edge 21st-century geospatial investigative techniques and impeccable logic have helped him track some of the country's most grisly killers. But those skills are pushed to the limit in this new installment of the highly-acclaimed, award-winning The Bowers Files series. This time it's a congressman's daughter who is found dead even as her killers launch a spree of perfect murders in the Northeast. With nothing to link the crimes to each other, Agent Bowers faces his most difficult case yet--even as his personal life begins to crumble around him. Known for his intricately woven, masterfully plotted novels of high-octane action and spine-tingling suspense, Steven James delivers once again. The Bishop is a gripping, adrenaline-laced story for readers who are tired of timid thrillers. Strap on your seatbelt and get ready for a wild ride. The game is on.

I really could not say it better myself. This book was fantastic with it's gritty, forensic details and show stopping intensity that I could not put it down. It's the first novel of Mr. James that I have read even though it's the fourth in a series. It definitely can be read as a stand alone but after finishing it, I ordered the other three right away.

Mr. James is a master at creating a fast paced plot intertwined with deep character development. FBI Agent Bowers is a coffee aficionado (totally in love already) who has recently become a single father due to his wife's death from cancer. Trying to keep his personal life on track while tracking down serial killers is not the easiest job in the world. The layers of conflict in this story create such a fertile field for so many plot points to grow from, I stayed up two nights straight to finish it.

If you are a fan of suspense thrillers you MUST run, not walk, to your nearest book store and purchase your copy today! There is also another exciting opportunity as well.
