From the Book:

A mysterious suicide and a series of abductions draw Patrick into a web of intrigue involving an international conspiracy where no one is who they appear to be and the stakes have never been higher. Soon, Patrick discovers that the secret to stopping the Piper’s current crime spree lies in unlocking answers from an eight-year-old cold case—and the only way to do that is by entering the terrifying world of the conspirators himself.

My Thoughts:

I've read all the Patrick Bower's File books and found them more than enjoyable. There is always breathless excitement and endings that wrap everything up perfectly but leaves the story open for the next book. This one confused me a little as to it's exact place in the series. If it's indeed a part of the series... at least one of the people that figures prominently is dead in the other eight books. So...is this really intended to be #1 instead of #9?

Be Aware...the book deals with a horrible, extremely distasteful subject...child pornography. Steven James does a great job of helping to make the reader aware of how child predators are allowed to function so successfully in our society and the results of their lure to the internet. He has also dedicated this book to The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. As with the other eight books the ending reads as if there is going to be another book that feeds off of this one. I'll be looking forward to it. ( )

Author Steven James is more than a master of the craft of writing. He is a true virtuoso of storytelling. He mesmerizes and twists the reader’s heart strings that you have to keep turning the page to find relief. In Every Crooked Path he brings to light a subject so dark and gruesome, yet he handles it with the utmost care and delicacy.

The reader has no control once they read the opening pages and are pulled into the story world of FBI agent Patrick Bowers. Investigating a murder, Bowers ends up trying to stop a suicide that leads him down a very dark rabbit hole.

The chase begins as the string of criminals widen into the dark recesses of the World Wide Web. Shadowed Corners where only the adept at computers and those trying to hide their nefarious actions congregate to scheme.
