Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Growing up in Wisconsin, I had heard about the ELF (extremely low frequency) station in the northern part of the state. As I was researching The Queen, I discovered that there was a lot more to it than I'd previously heard about. This secret communications base became integral to the story as I developed it.
Originally, I'd intended to write an isolated book that occurred with a sniper during a snowstorm. Didn't quite work out like that. But it does snow, and someone does get shot, so at least I was right about that much.
I hear from many fans that the assassin in this book, Alexei Chekov, is their favorite villain in the entire series. I have to admit that he is one of my favorites as well.
This was my most complex and intricate story that I had written up until that time. The Queen won or was nominated for more awards than any of my other novels.

From the Inside Flap

While investigating a mysterious double homicide in an isolated northern Wisconsin town, FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers uncovers a high-tech conspiracy that ties together long-buried Cold War secrets with present-day tensions in the Middle East.

In his most explosive thriller yet, bestselling author Steven James delivers a pulse-pounding, multilayered storytelling tour de force that will keep you guessing.

The Queen is the latest Patrick Bowers thriller from the author Publishers Weekly calls a "master storyteller at the peak of his game."|Critically acclaimed author Steven James has written four other award-winning Patrick Bowers novels as well as many works of nonfiction. He has a master's degree in storytelling and has taught writing and creative storytelling on three continents. He lives near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Tennessee with his wife and three daughters.
