    This review was written for The Pawn, Bowers Files Series #1.
    This is one of the most engaging books I have read. The author draws you in and doesn't let you go. Because I am from Wisconsin, Patrick Bower's adventures have particular relevance. It is also a joy to be able to read a suspenseful book without having to worry about foul language. I think Steven James can take his place with the best crime authors of all time!

    I thought that because it was bought at a Christian bookstore online that it would be a lot more "spiritual" and Biblically based. Too much graphic-ness!!! It was almost tossed in the trash.

    Overall this was a good read. I did find it too graphic at times. I found myself wanting more of an emphasis on Biblical issues. I almost put it aside a few times and didn't plan to finish it, but I did finish.

    I love suspense, mystery, intrigue, espionage, etc. type books. At one time I read Patricia Cornwell, Patterson, and others such as that. However, it seems as the success grew the books also did: each grew more unlike what I would think as believers we wouldn't read. I think that suspense does not have to be gory or in so much detail about that which is not so unedifying. There are many other authors who can keep one on the edge of the seat without the explicit details. The first of the series was enough. What surprise to find this for purchase on a Christian site. I normally recycle books to libraries, Salvation Army, Metropolitan Ministries, friends, neighbors, etc. This one went in the trash. When passing along books I hope to share that which reflects the Lord for others who might not know Him would want to read more about His character. Again other authors have written high suspense without sounding like an unbelieving author. If only judging the book's quality in grammatical terms and that the good guys always win, that quality would be good. Otherwise if quality is based on Biblical standards, no.

    This is the first time I have read one of Mr. James books. He is excellent in grabing and holding your attention, and masterful at providing suspense and intrigue. However, I definitely anticipated more from a Christian writer. I stopped reading James Patterson's books because of how gory and descriptive they were, catergorizing him as a very sick man that defames women. I now find Mr. James doing the same thing. By the end of the book I grew more appreciative of his actual writing skills, and hope that the next books in these series are not so offensive. Yes, I will read The Rook, but I am hoping that it is not as descriptive with the murder scenes. Then maybe I can recommend his books.
