I'm 300 pages into The Rook, and I have The Knight on hold.

From the website:

The world needs a better kind of detective.
And he has arrived.

Special Agent Patrick Bowers doesn’t search for motive, hates profiling and avoids looking for DNA. Instead, using cutting-edge 21st-century geospatial investigative techniques and impeccable logic, he tracks the most grisly killers in the country.

And, oh yeah, with triple-twist endings that will take your breath away, we dare you to guess who the killer is.

Gripping, adrenaline-laced suspense for readers who are tired of timid thrillers. The game begins now.

The Knight was a bit of a letdown. It's hard to say that and still convince people that it was a well written and extremely exciting book. Just a couple problems.

**Spoilers**

This book felt like the beginning of a different series. Steven James is probably going to bring everything up in The Bishop, but it felt like he skipped a book. An important character from The Rook basically was only in for a phone call, and then she was gone. The main villian of the last two books was killed off at the beginning. I was expecting him to be the mastermind of the whole series.
The mystery killer was only a slight letdown. I should have seen who it was from a mile away, but that's the thing with first person books. You follow their thinking instead of forming your own theories and though it isn't a shock who the villian is, it does make you say, "I should have seen this coming."
One last thing that bugged me. It wasn't a major thing, but this book took the violence from the last two books to an entirely different level. It was grisly and at times horrifying. Not a big deal, but it didn't sit right with me.

**Spoilers end**

Anyway, The Knight was a good book. I give it a 4.5/5. It just didn't live up to The Pawn and The Rook.
