Checkmate by Steven James Book Review & Family Christian Giveaway

Disclosure: I am proud to be a Family Christian Blogger and Affiliate.  I was provided with my own copy of Checkmate by Steven James to facilitate my review and Family Christian is sponsoring this giveaway.  All opinions expressed are my own.

 Finished reading Checkmate!

I have another book to tell you about, Checkmate by Steven James.  Checkmate is the seventh installment of James' bestselling series, The Bowers Files.  Now I have not read the previous titles, this was a stand-alone for me and it really did work.  Of course, I didn't have all the background information or previous character information but James did a great job of including the relevant information and catching everyone up to speed throughout this book.

In this book, Special Agent Pat Bowers is thrust into a crime that brings his present and past into collision.  It is definitely a thriller full of unexpected twists and turns.  I also want to add that the content can be graphic at times as this books content is high on crimes, crime scenes, killers and the agents that seek to bring them to justice.  If you love murder mysteries and thrillers this is definitely a book you should check out.

 Lego Chess Board the kids made 

I am assuming from the title that this book will be the last in this series.  Checkmate is a chess move that ultimately ends the game and one opponent is defeated.  This visualization worked really well for this novel. 

You can find out more about this book and/or purchase it from Family Christian here.
