"James delivers the ... plot twists and intriguing characterizations that made The Pawn a welcome addition to the suspense genre." (Publishers Weekly)
I love a good murder mystery or any novel where good overcomes evil. Two of my favorite authors are Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker.
If you love James Patterson's crime novels but not the body details, graphic sex or foul language, you'll love this series.
Another good Patrick Bower thriller. I wish the narrator would get another voice for Tessa. She sounds stilted and like a whiny brat.
I listen to Childs, Flynn, Connelly, WEB, David B. and White, this series ranks with all these authors!
I don't bite my nails, but Steven James almost had me taking up the habit. Richard Ferrone gives a solid performance in the narration. Plot was strong. Character development was top notch. The suspense will have you wanting to listen to more, long after your road trip. This is the first edition in a great series by James, and in my opinion it is the best in the series, next to Opening Moves. One word of caution, it's not for the squeamish! I read a lot of fiction, this one is one of my top ten, better than Andrew Klavan.
I can't answer this questin because I don't read books, just listen to them. All the books in this series are a good listen. Richard Ferrone is a wonderful narrater, you won't be disappointed if you like Murder mysteries! The writer paints his characters well and the books should be listened to in order as characters and villains move from book to book.Waiting for more Patrick Bowers Books.
If it was not a "Christian Inspirational"book.
Irritation that it was not advertised as Christian Inspirational. But is clearly was heavily dosed with christian themes.
Label it correctly for what it is.
I found this book to be an okay mystery, but the reader was poor, especially on the women's voices. He made the teenage daughters voice so whiney all the time-it really got old.
It was a little to graphic for me especially since it is listed a Christian fiction.
Yes, not enough range of voice in his characters-lots of times too flat.
No way too much violence for the screen.
