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.

This was not a bad book but I couldn't help feeling like the author's style resembled painting by numbers. It was not bad, it just seemed like it lacked that "wow" factor

This was the first read of a new author for me. I enjoyed the book, stayed up way too late one night to finish it. I am going to get the next one "The Rook" and see if I like it as well. It is always good to find a new author to get immersed in. I found the methodology of the lead person, the investigator, Patrick Bowers, somewhat vague, but the action was good and I ended up liking all the main characters.

Steven James is one of the best mystery/suspense writers that I have read. I am thrilled that I found his line of mystery books.
