The Queen (The Bowers Files Book #5)

Book 5, The Bowers Files - A Patrick Bowers Thriller

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


While investigating a double homicide in an isolated northern Wisconsin town, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers uncovers a high-tech conspiracy that twists through long-buried Cold War secrets and targets present-day tensions in the Middle East.

In his most explosive thriller yet, bestselling author Steven James delivers a multi-layered storytelling tour de force that not only delivers pulse-pounding suspense but also deftly explores the rippling effects of the choices we make.

The Queen is a techno-thriller that will leave you breathless, offered by the author Publishers Weekly calls a "master storyteller at the peak of his game."

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 04, 2011 – Not given to formulas, James mixes up a fresh recipe for the next installment of the Bowers Files that's a quarter-cup Sherlock Holmes mystery, a dash of plot-twisting Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a heaping tablespoon of Tom Clancy international espionage, and a pinch of Jonathan Kellerman criminology for those hungry for new thrillers without raunchy sex and gratuitous violence, but with all the humanity and less sap than formula Christian fiction. Richly textured character descriptions and revelations, villains with environmental consciences, bad guys you can nearly wish well, and a love story are all threaded smartly throughout. These are not lightweight good guy bad guy chase scenes, but complex stories moving freely across world cultures, characters' minds, and belief systems. The downside of James's recipe is that readers will have to develop a taste for genre bending and endure mild whiplash as the narrative hopscotches from multiple points of view, or from a scene of tender love and forgiveness on to heinous misdeeds of terrorists and serial killers. Even so, with a brilliant strategy, James manages a checkmate, and he seems to have many more moves in store.
