    Entertaining Enough, But Don't Listen Too Closely

    Enjoyable, but flawed.

    On the plus side, this is an entertaining listen that will keep you engaged. If you overlook a few plot gimmicks, you..Show More »

    Christy Award nominee Steven James writes action-packed thrillers swirling with tantalizing mystery. In this sequel to The Pawn, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers confronts the Navy's darkest secret - and his own painful past.

    Gripping

    Another good Patrick Bower thriller. I wish the narrator would get another voice for Tessa. She sounds stilted and like a whiny brat.

    Not as good as Bishop, but some high points

    The first thing that bothered me was that the author spent way too much time reviewing things that happened in previous books. There are some really ..Show More »

    Patrick Bowers has pursued the nation's fiercest serial killers - and now one elusive foe is back for revenge. Settling into a new post at the FBI academy, Patrick and his fiancée, Lien-hua Jiang, are planning their future together with his stepdaughter, Tessa. But just when his life seems normal, a demon from the past returns to draw him down a dark road he hoped had closed forever.

    An interesting listen with some decent twist but..

    The narration is good and the storyline keeps you hooked and intrigued for the most part.
