Obviously I can't tell you what happens but if you're the thinking type you may be in for a brain spasm.

First let me say I'm a big fan of Steven James to the point where he's on my short list of must-read authors. He truly is a gifted storyteller and a fantastic writer - one of the best ever. I've highly enjoyed all of the Patrick Bower series and The Queen was no exception. In this book Patrick not only deals with a freed serial killer who's killing again but a possible world shattering catastrophic event. The writing is superb as usual. The story is very good but here is where I have an issue. Half of the story is personal drama dealing with Patrick's family, mainly his brother and sister-in-law. Although it's well written and the spiritual questions and thoughts on forgiveness are quite powerful, it took way too much time away from the thriller aspect of the story. In the past the family drama was just a side thread but in The Queen it cover's way too many pages and slows the story down. The world-shattering plot could have made this the best Bower's book yet but unfortunately that did not happen. Don't let this stop you from reading this book; it's still worth buying. When the thriller aspect picks up you'll be losing a lot of sleep and the whodunit question will keep you guessing until the last page.

The surprises at the end of the book made me sit for a long time and try to think if they made sense. Obviously I can't tell you what happens but if you're the thinking type you may be in for a brain spasm. To me there were no clues to whom the main villians were even though it was explained how they were figured out in the end. Was it a cheap shot by the author or was it really thought out? Read it for yourself and find out.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. Please understand I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the books page. In doing so too many reviewers give away too much of the plot. Thank you.

I had lots of fun reading all of the books in the series (The Bowers Files). These are real thrillers but James' information on technology, locations, processes provides me with the information I want so I am learning something worth knowing while also being entertained with a great thriller and -- he doesn't push my face in blood, gore and misery -- I like thrillers but can't take that. So, his books were perfect for me and with each one I read I had two feelings -- one was delight in reading that novel and the other was sadness that I had fewer books to go before the series was over. Yes, it was that much fun. However, when I was reading the last book in the series I kind of felt as if I were reading a rerun on TV. I realize the author has to fill in new readers to the series with events of the past since the characters go from one book to another and James was not thinking of someone who purchased the entire series at one time and read through every book in a short time span. So my feeling was just because I read the way you are not expected to read. I also like to watch every program in a TV series' season in one or two days and broadcasters were recently complaining that the programs were not meant to be viewed that way. However, when seeing them that way they connect better and you notice things you would miss If you were viewing once a week -- so if we want to read or view in unintended ways and we come up with something that kind of bores us, it is our own fault. Certainly not James' fault -- his writing is great.

I've read the whole series now and one of the things that kept me going is the realistic aspect of the series. Yeah, some of the things in the other series seem a little 'too' coincidental but it didn't really take away from the fast paced thrill of it.

This one. Wow. I'm teetering between three stars and four based on the rating system I borrowed from another reviewer (see below). Don't get me wrong, the book was a great read, it was a bit slow in places and other places, it was just plain unrealistic. It would be nice for the next series if the author didn't think he had to create so much drama around the daughter. I mean, really, that girl is a drama magnet. I don't want to nit-pick the book apart going into too many details (spoilers / complaints), so I'll just leave it at this: if you like the rest of the series, this one is for you, but lower your expectations just a tad.

It was nice to see this series actually presenting the message of Christ this time. One of the most profound statements I've read in a while was when you're asking someone for forgiveness, you're actually asking them to sacrifice something. In order for something to be forgiven, something has to be sacrificed. Of course the author was leading toward the ultimate sacrifice - Jesus.

*spoiler alert*
I have read all 5 books in the past week and really enjoyed them. I appreciate all the research, thought-provoking conversations, action thrills & chills, ect. So I feel confused about the ending to this book. Why, why, why would the end turn out to be so predictable!!! How can one man be so surrounded by co-workers and friends that turn out to be serial killers? It doesn't feel authentic at all and kind of ruined the book for me, plus it sounded too much like the other books toward the end, almost like the author was running out of steam and just wanted to hurry up and finish the story without thinking clearly about the improbability of the story he was crafting. I find this so odd because he is so careful with the rest of the book and most of it is so outstanding, until the end.

I fully enjoyed this Steven James novel. I am working my way through Steven James' The Patrick Bowers Files series and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. He is a 'tight' writer with twist and drama, hooking you and keeping you until the end. I am female and enjoy the FBI/serial killer story line. An exciting well written read with developed characters.
