Publisher's 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.

Author Bio

Critically acclaimed author Steven James has written more than thirty books, including Story, A Heart Exposed, and the bestselling Patrick Bowers thriller series. He is considered one of the nation's most innovative storytellers and versatile authors, and is a contributing editor to Writer's Digest. Steven lives in Tennessee with his wife and three daughters.

Publisher's Weekly

James, critically acclaimed author of the series the Bowers Files, sends new chills down the spine in his newest suspense thriller, told from various points of view and centering on FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers's criminology and geospatial tracking of serial killers. When a prominent congressman's daughter is murdered, seemingly unconnected crimes become evidence of a heinous game played by two people who have the same things coursing through their veins as their victims and the cops trying to catch them: love and hate. James packs the narrative with ethical dilemmas and subplots involving abortion and medical research ("It would have saved us all a lot of trouble if your mother had just gone ahead with the abortion"). The novel moves swiftly, with punchy dialogue but gruesome scenes. Readers must be ready to stomach the darkest side of humanity and get into the minds of serial killers to enjoy this master storyteller at the peak of his game. (Aug.)

    I have been enjoying Stephen James books to the fullest.

    The Bishop was very exciting and as his other books very hard to put down. It grabs you from the first page and holds your interest to the very last page. Patrick Bowers is an amazing FBI agent that leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next. He stays with the crime until he gets his man. Stephen James writes a great novel without using curse words or filthy language. I am now reading his last novel The Queen and will be waiting for his next novel to come out. I have read all five of his books and have enjoyed all immensely.

    Love reading Steven James' books. It is hard to put it down. The only thing is he has a lot of characters in his books. He does keep you on your toes.

    If you like this kind of fast paced mystery thriller, but don't like the overly graphic violence and sex that usually go with it, this book provides all the page turning exciting plots and characters. But it's still not for the faint of heart!

    I enjoyed every one of the Patrick Bowers Series and have waited anxiously for this one. The graphic detail hasn't bothered me in any of Steven James' books and I feel that it adds to the books. As I read this book I felt that James' writing style has changed somewhat and I was somewhat disappointed that I knew who one of the killers was right away. The other Bowers' books had me guessing until the end and that was one of the aspects that I liked about his books. That comment aside, I LOVED this book and am waiting impatiently for summer to come so I can read The Queen.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Steven James
Submitted: November 28, 2012

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m a father, husband, storyteller, adventurer and lover of stories with a twist at the end.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I was considering the question of what makes humans different from animals. At first I thought the answer would be, “Well, humans have souls,” but then I came across Ecclesiastes 3:21 that says, “Who knows if the spirit of man rises upward and if the spirit of the animal goes down into the earth?” I’d never heard in church that animals had spirits just as humans do, so this verse really got me to thinking. The storyline for The Bishop grew out of my journey deeper into this question.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A greater sense of the dignity and worth of human life.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  This book required more research on philosophy, science and human nature than any of my previous novels. I learned a lot about the point of view of those who believe in evolution and about the impact that has on their view of humans, and of the point of view of those who believe in creation, and the impact that has on how they view human life. It was eye-opening. It’s frightening where reasoning from a worldview that does not include God will lead you in the realms of justifying evil and immorality.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  While researching this book, I dove into apologetics and found that Peter Kreeft is probably my favorite author in that field.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This is my deepest, most philosophical novel to date. It was also the one with the most intense climax. If you like thought-provoking, intense thrillers, then you’ll love The Bishop.
