What did I think?
The Pawn, was a great read and wild ride. Author Steven James does a great job keeping the reader guessing at each step of the way. Whenever you think you have something figured out, another layer to the character and story is revealed.
Special Agent Patrick Bowers of the FBI is up for a big challenge in this novel.
James is very persistent in his writing, and creates a realistic and intriguing plot that’ll keep you flipping pages.
I enjoyed this novel, and was interested to see where James might take the series.
