The Pawn

The Pawn (The Patrick Bowers Files, Book 1)

The Pawn by Steven James,  is the first book in the Patrick Bower's Files series.  This writer will keep you guessing.  Just when I thought I knew who the killer is, Mr. James proved me wrong a couple of times.  Dr. Patrick Bower just lost his wife to cancer after a few months of marriage and he is doubting his faith in God.  This book talks about Christian faith in a subtle way.  Dr. Bower is an FBI agent whose specialty is in finding/tracking criminals through environmental criminology.  He studies the time and place where the crime took place and tries to locate where the culprits will be.  He also have a teenage stepdaughter with whom he can't relate and is confuse on how to parent her. 

A good thriller which includes a few very detailed and sometimes gory description of murders.  It gives a hint of how God is involve in our lives.  A dose of parenting teenager dilemna and I see a beginning of new love.  We will see if it goes on to the next book The Rook.  Here is a quote from the book " Our choices decide who we are but our loves define who we'll become".
