    As with all his previous books of this series James has come through with a spell binding mystery that is so

    very hard to put down. After every chapter you wonder what will come next. i don't think he can beat for the

    best mystery books on the market. Will he ever stop Basque ?

    Could this be the end to the Patrick Bowers files? Say it isn't so!!! Checkmate is indeed the last in the series but the good news is that it isn't a series that ends with a fizzle. It definitely goes out with a BANG!

    I fell in love with this series right from the start so I am sad to see it end. One of the things that I really appreciated about Checkmate was that it didn't read like an ending. It continued to be a page-turner from the front to the back covers. I found myself holding my breath wondering just how Pat was going to get out of this newest situation. You would think that by the eighth book in the series the storyline would grow stale, but it didn't.

    The Bowers Files series stretches over eight books, but in my opinion they can each be read as stand-alone titles. You'd miss out on a lot of heart pounding suspense but it can be done. Checkmate alludes to past episodes but the author fills in the blanks enough so the seasoned reader isn't bored with the details but the newby can follow along.

    If you have become a fan of Steven James' work you'll be pleased to know that he has a new series in progress that is called The Jevin Banks Experience. The first two books have already been released and they are titled, Placebo and Singularity. It looks to be another award-winning series by James.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    This review was written for Checkmate: The Bowers Files - eBook.
    As expected, Steven James's protagonist, Patrick Bowers, explodes into the scene of another deviously planned out chaotic "game" of wits. Expect the unexpected from the first page to the last. A real winner of a final move for a masterfully writen series. Take the gambit and see who declares checkmate!
