I didn't realize that this was a series when I picked it up at the library, but it hooked me right in! Once i finished, I immediately got the first book, The Pawn, and can't wait to read more. Total page turner!

Fantastic read! This book had me hooked from the beginning. Was fascinating to see how the character of Patrick Bowers comes full circle.
Nice to see how his friendship starts with fellow FBI agent Ralph and how his friendship/mentor-ship begins with Calvin.

novels, this one answers all of your questions...
It tells his story of his life as a detective in Milwaukee, how Basque comes into the 'picture', and how he starts his career with the FBI, and life with Christie and Tessa.
A must read!!

I loved it. Violent, but not graphic. Complex, but not confusing. A page turner

into the world of the of the depravities of the pasts serial killers and into the depths of the atrocities of the current tortures and killers. "Opening Moves" is not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach. All of the Patrick Bower series have been high octane thrillers and this one does not disappoint.
