Synopsis

Special Agent Patrick Bowers had only met one man who made him truly afraid. Until now. When he's called to North Carolina to consult on the case of an area serial killer, he finds himself in a deadly game.
Cunning and lethal, the killer is always one step ahead of the law, and he's about to strike again. It will take all of Bowers's instincts and training to stop this man who calls himself the Illusionist. And just when the pieces start to come together, Bowers realizes they're not quite adding up. Can he unravel the pattern and save the next victim? Or will the Illusionist win the game by taking one of his opponent's pieces? Thrilling, chilling, and impossible to put down, The Pawn will hold suspense lovers in its iron grip until the very last page.

    I'm always interested in a mystery with a difference and this author certainly provides something new. The main character has recently lost his wife of only a few months and has a strained relationship with his teenaged step-daughter. In the first several chapters I kept thinking that I must have missed a previous book with the backstory, but it's provided in bits and pieces throughout the novel. James also infuses the book with questions of life, death, faith, family, and fear as the characters ponder their beliefs and their place in the world. There is nothing "preachy" in the story but it certainly made me think about some of these issues as well while I read. I will definitely continue reading the Pat Bowers stories.
