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 .

I enjoyed this second in a series by Steven James. The characters are developing nicely, and the story was entertaining and sufficiently gripping. I look forward to continuing with additional books in this series, and will also try any stand alone by James as I like his style.

Very entertaining book, fast-paced, and quite an enjoyable read once you get over the stiff delivery of the author. James writes without the flair of some of the great thriller writers but he still manages to deliver a fun book.

I thought this was better than The Pawn. The characters are more fleshed out and so they seem more real and close. I will continue to read this series.
