Reviews - What do customers think about The Pawn (The Patrick Bowers Files, Book 1)?

Can't believe this is his first novel!  Dec 15, 2009
Everytime I discover a new writer that can grab my attention from the first page through the end...I can't seem to get enough. My wife says I'm a slow reader, but I really picked up the pace with this one to keep up with the action. Love the characters and the plot was well developedThe Pawn (The Patrick Bowers Files, Book 1). Talk about suspense...awesome!
five star opening with a one star finish  Dec 13, 2009
The first half of this book is great - brilliant bad guy methodically being tracked by a brilliant good guy, all in an enticing and simple format. Then the second half of the book sees tons of new characters as the plot blossoms from the simple to the cliched bizarre. Not sure why the author just didn't stick to the orignal story plot, as it was good enough to land a five star rating. As it is, it barely comes in with a three ranking, as the second half of the book comes in with one star quality. Overall, while the writing is very easy on the eyes, I would not recommend reading this book, even with the opening promise.
Excellent book, now a fan  Dec 13, 2009
I downloaded this book to my Kindle 2 when the publisher offered it for a limited time for free. Just to see how it was. I started reading and was instantly hooked. Now the price has gone back up ($7.99 as of this review), but let me tell you--it's well worth it. I'll now be downloading the other two installments in this trilogy. Good marketing by the publisher! Excellent writing by Mr. James.
hm  Dec 13, 2009
this is poorly written book with under developed characters and slow unexciting plot. it is hard to believe it was rated highly. a waste.
May cause nightmares  Dec 8, 2009
I really debated whether to rate this as a 4 or a 5. The book was a little too scary for me--serial killers give me nightmares! However, that's not the reason for the 4 instead of the 5. There are a couple of points I struggled with: without revealing too much, a secondary cause enters in (the Governor's role) that seems like it's one too many villains, but James brings it all together fairly well. Additionally, there is a risk to Bowers' daughter that he seems too oblivious to, sort of the point in the book where your telling the character "don't be so stupid, don't go in the basement!" The characters are good though, the writing is well-done, but if the rest of the series is the same type of crime, I may stop with this one!
