    This review was written for Knight, The - eBook.
    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
Located in: Johnson City, TN
Submitted: August 05, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Since getting my Master's Degree in Storytelling in 1997, I've been privileged to pursue a career of telling and writing stories. My latest venture, The Patrick Bowers novels, has been my most challenging series yet.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I began asking myself a question, "What is more important, truth or justice?" The journey toward the answer led me to this story.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  First of all, I hope they'll enjoy the story and connect with the characters. Also, my goal is to lead people on a journey to asking questions that ultimately matter.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Honestly, as I wrote about the serial killer, I was deeply disturbed. He was so evil, that he began to give me nightmares. I ended up taking a break from the novel and finishing a prayer book I had been working on. I'm happy both with how the novel and the book of prayers turned out.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Calvin Miller's Singer Trilogy inspired me to weave imagination and faith into my writing. Lately, I've been reading a variety of thriller authors including Dave Morrell and Jeffrey Deaver to get a handle on how other authors craft thrillers.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This is the third book in The Bowers Files. If you like high octane suspense, check out The Pawn and The Rook as well.
