Synopsis

An arsonist has struck a top-secret research facility at a key US naval base. But it's not just a random terrorist attack. These people were after something specific. When Special Agent Patrick Bowers is called in to investigate, he is drawn into a deadly web of intrigue and deception. With his own criminology research being turned against him and one of the world's most deadly devices missing, Bowers is caught up in a race against time to stop an international assassin before it's too late.
Full of fast-paced action and mind-bending plot twists, The Rook is an adrenaline-laced page-turner that will keep readers up all night. Book 2 in the Bowers Files, this riveting look into the criminal mind is the perfect follow-up to James's well-reviewed The Pawn.

Disappointing read. No breaks to distinguish change of scene which made it confusing. At the end it when you think it over it sets it up for a part 2. Won't read another of his books.

It seemed a little far fetched at times, but still suspenseful and enjoyable.

The book was great! I couldn't pot it down. One criticism. It is difficult to read as the author changes from one scene to the next with no warning causing this reader confusion. This could be corrected by leaving at least two lines, preferably three between scenes.
