Publisher Description

In The Bowers Files novels, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers has stopped some of the most vicious serial killers ever imagined. Now, in the fifth exciting installment, author Steven James takes readers back to Bowers’s terrifying beginning.

Milwaukee, 1997. In a city reeling from the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer, a series of gruesome kidnappings and mutilations draw authorities into a case like nothing they’ve ever seen. Cops think a Dahmer copycat is on the loose.

But Patrick Bowers, working as a homicide detective, suspects this is more than an ode to the infamous cannibal. When he discovers that the shocking acts reference some of the most notorious and macabre killers in our nation’s history, the investigation spirals into a nightmare of manipulation, brutality, and terror.

Wielding groundbreaking investigative techniques, Bowers must now face off with a killer who will stop at nothing to get his message out to the world. Chilling, gritty, and packed with twists and turns, Opening Moves is Steven James’s most heart-pounding novel yet.

The King

Just finished reading the entire Patrick Bowers series over the summer of 2013. Cannot believe I waited this long to begin to read the series, but am so glad I waited. Being able to read each book back to back without a break made it that much more enjoyable.

James Stevens is a genius and an incredible storyteller. Extremely compelling reading.

Just when you think you have him figured out, he fools you. Making you wait until the very last pages for the big reveal.

Cannot wait until the release of Checkmate in 2014. Very well written. Well worth the late nights.

James has done it again

I have truly loved every book in the Bowers files. This book, however, was everything I dreamed it would be. It was suspenseful and gripping and I could not put it down. I was thrilled to be a fly on the wall in the early years of Patrick Bowers' career. It takes skill to keep a reader so hooked on a book that they already know exactly how it will end. Wow! I cannot wait for the next one!
