    I am surprised Steven James' books are sold as Christian books as there is nothing that would lead a nonbeliever to Jesus Christ. However, the books are well-written, although, too graphic in the murders committed. I kept on reading thinking in the end there would be something written about redemption, saving grace, or something that would point to our mighty living GOD. That was not the case. Good books for secular society.

    This review was written for The Knight, Patrick Bowers Series #3.
    "The Knight" was an exciting, fast-paced suspense novel. Though it has a who-done-it mystery to solve, it departed from the conventions of the mystery genre in one major way, so I'll simply call it suspense. This book was the third in the series, but you can still follow what's going on even if you haven't read the previous books. The details about the job and the setting brought the story alive in my imagination. The good-guy characters were realistic, varied, and dealt with realistic relational troubles in addition to the dangers and frustration of tracking the serial killer. However, I didn't find the bad guy realistic--he was more a lifeless but scary character out of a horror story. I was left feeling disturbed and irritated by the ending rather than satisfied. This was partly because the mystery wasn't completely explained. Though the killer was one of the four people I suspected (due to opportunity and non-obviousness), it wasn't obvious that he had the full skill set needed for the crimes. We're never told how he got those needed skills. And something else happens at the end that's the stuff of nightmares and horror novels, not mysteries.While one character was a Catholic, there wasn't really any religious talk. There was a political "our justice system doesn't work perfectly" theme, though. A very minor amount of bad language was implied. There was no sex. The level of violence was high, but the gore was often implied rather than graphically described. Though I was disappointed with it, I'd still recommend this novel as exciting, clean reading.

    I love this series! Yes, there is violence, because the main character is an FBI agent! Its not happy-go-lucky for real life agents all the time. Its just reality. I really want them to make these books into movies!

    The entire Bowers Files Series were a disappointment because I did not find anything spiritually uplifting in them. They should not be classified as christian fiction. They were pretty good just plain ole mystery/suspense novels. But, I just didn't see why they were categorized as Christian fiction. Really gorey stuff.

    I've liked his first 2 books about Agent Bowers but this book solidified him, in my mind, as an excellent author. He fleshed out his characters more and the creepy factor was a 10+!!! Can't wait for the next one in the series, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Steven James
Submitted: November 27, 2012

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I’m married, have three daughters, and live in Tennessee near the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I like to write from the place of moral dilemmas. This book grew out of the question, “What’s more important, truth or justice?” When I first started writing The Knight, I thought I knew the answer to that question, but while writing the book I ended up switching my view. It was quite a journey.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope readers will enjoy the suspense, explore the moral issues raised, and prioritize, in a new way, the importance of loving others and protecting those who don’t have a voice or a chance to speak up.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I found new insight into the moral questions revolving around telling the truth versus protecting the innocent. Writing the book forced me to study Scripture to see what God’s view of this topic is. So, just like with all of my novels, the book became a personal quest that helped me grow in ways I never expected.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I love reading prayer books, poetry and books on the art of writing. Surprisingly, I don’t read that many thrillers, even though that’s what I write. I’m a little weird that way.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  For nearly a year as I worked on The Knight I thought I knew who the killer would be, but in the end, I discovered I was wrong and someone I never expected revealed himself to me as the villain. So, during the final edits, I made the change in the manuscript. It made the story better, but it also sets readers up for a challenge: if you can guess who the bad guy is you’ll have done a better job at deducing him than I did. Have fun and good luck!
