My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Everyone who knows me knows that I love the Patrick Bowers Files Series. Every book in the series has been riveting with edge-of-your-seat suspense without compromising a Christian world view. The plots are complicated enough that I rarely guess the perpetrator, but even when I do, I’m satisfied with the challenge. Checkmate, the final novel in the series, is no exception. I would have been sad to have turned the last page on this novel if I hadn’t learned that the author plans to write more Patrick Bowers thrillers. Tessa, Patrick, Ralph, and Lien Hua have become old friends. But even though there will be more, Checkmate was a satisfying ending to the series. What I didn’t expect was that this novel would be my favorite. Considering how much I loved some of the others, that is the highest praise I could give. I highly recommend this novel.
