Quotes & Awards

  • Checkmate is high tension all the way. The author writes with precision and incisiveness. Fast, sharp, and belivable. Put it at the top of your list.”

    John Lutz, Edgar Award–winning author of Single White Female

  • “A perfectly crafted hard-hitting, intense thriller that takes readers to the top of the cliff and dangles them over the edge. James is an author that every thriller reader should have on their bookshelf.”

    Suspense Magazine

  • “James creates a multilayered tale that leaves readers breathless.”

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Richard Ferrone…gives Bowers an introspective identity at every turn, which is appropriate considering all that is on his mind. A partner has a deeper voice, a pair of vicious murderers keep a cold calmness in their tones, and his stepdaughter talks with a clipped, almost frustrated, voice.”


  • “In his latest Patrick Bowers thriller, Steven James pens another fast-paced thriller chock full of great characters, head-snapping plot twists, impeccable research, and a truly fun ride. Highly recommended. Not to be missed.”

    D. P. Lyle, award-winning author of the Dub Walker and Samantha Cody thriller series
