Book Summary

In "The Knight," the third installment in the bestselling series of thrillers featuring FBI criminologist Patrick Bowers, the stakes have never been higher. 

Agent Bowers is used to tracking the country's most dangerous killers, but now it looks like a killer is tracking him. When he realizes the murderer is using clues from an ancient manuscript as a blueprint for his crimes, Bowers faces a race against time to decipher who the next victim will be and to stop the final shocking murder--which he's beginning to believe might be his own. 

Gritty, chilling, and intense, this psychological thriller is guaranteed to keep readers up all night.

My Review

This installment has a sadistic killer that will make you cringe at the details that are given. Still, this author knows how to weave a story.

At the beginning I was quite surprised to find out that Patrick’s love interest was out of the picture and in steps someone new. It kind of bothered me because I never really understood what the problem was with the old relationship and why the break up.

Then there was Tessa, an interesting character she is. We learned the truth about her. There were points when I was mad at her for the reactions she had. As smart as she is, I didn’t understand how she could discount feelings she learned and take them as a bad thing. She seemed to help Patrick on every case but she couldn’t see a scared young woman debate a decision she obviously didn’t make.

Sorry so cryptic, I don’t want to give spoilers.

And this mystery had me baffled. I never guessed who done it until literally right before Patrick did, so well done there.

This book is fast pace and this series is fast becoming one of my favorites.

Audio Review
Richard Ferrone did a good job with the narration and capturing the emotions from all the characters.

My book boyfriend is Patrick.
