The Queen by Steven James

The Queen
Steven James
Published by Revell

A Patrick Bowers Thriller! Take an FBI agent, Secret Russian Spies, Computer Hackers, Government Officials, and Environmentalist and throw them all into a novel and you have a thriller of utmost proportions!

This book is the 5th in the series and it definitely was able to stand alone. The Queen also known as Valkyrie was an unknown person in the plot who was the mastermind behind the plan to take out many with a ballistic missile. There were many subplots in this book that all melded into one another. They were searching for a serial killer who had resurfaced. I should have heeded the warning that parts of this book were graphic and not for the faint at heart, but I managed to muddle through those parts to get the basis of the plot. Romantic interests of course had to be involved in the novel for all of us not so technically minded. Patrick and his current love, past love and his brother’s love all had their subplots. This book easily could have become many books with all the subplots and interests in it, but it worked well for just one book too. Maybe a bit overloaded with information, but I think there is a niche for it in the reader world. I may try one of the other novels by Steven James when I can sit quietly and concentrate on the book, rather than being interrupted.

I received a copy of this book from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
