FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers's cutting-edge 21st-century geospatial investigative techniques and impeccable logic have helped him track some of the country's most grisly killers. But those skills are pushed to the limit in this new installment of the highly-acclaimed, award-winning The Bowers Files series.

This time it's a congressman's daughter who is found dead even as her killers launch a spree of perfect murders in the Northeast. With nothing to link the crimes to each other, Agent Bowers faces his most difficult case yet--even as his personal life begins to crumble around him.

Known for his intricately woven, masterfully plotted novels of high-octane action and spine-tingling suspense, Steven James delivers once again. The Bishop is a gripping, adrenaline-laced story for readers who are tired of timid thrillers. Strap on your seatbelt and get ready for a wild ride. The game is on.

I found this offering in the series to be challenging -- characters continue to develop nicely, and more back story is eased into the plot to make the characters flesh out. I do enjoy how the game of chess, via one specific piece, plays a role in each story in the series. That makes it a bit of fun all on its own! I look forward to the next one up.

I was only a few pages into the book when I started having flashbacks from James's previous books. The characters keep doing the same thing although nothing good has come out of it in the past and James continues to write with a color-by-numbers feel to it

As good as Patterson's best sellers featuring Alex Cross. It's better in details on criminal behavior, but not as crisp because of too much details of such. Love the author's chess axiom of the bishop - the only piece that stays on it's own color on the board. Good read.
