About the book:
FBI Special Agent Patrick Bowers has matched wits with some of the most violent serial killers in history—and one of them has never forgiven him....

Patrick Bowers has pursued the nation’s fiercest serial killers—and now one elusive foe is back for revenge.

Settling into a new post at the FBI academy, Patrick and his fiancée, Lien-hua Jiang, are planning their future together with his stepdaughter, Tessa.

But just when his life seems normal, a demon from the past returns to draw him down a dark road he hoped had closed forever. Forced into a desperate hunt to save the two women he loves most, Patrick is in a race against time to stop an international conspiracy from becoming the most widespread act of terrorism in U.S. history.

My thoughts:

I feel like I'm repeating myself in these re-reviews, but The King was another fantastic thriller and I loved it even more the second time -- I think because I read it right after finishing The Queen, so I was able to appreciate the greatness of this story more.

I loved the characters, I loved the journey the characters took, and I loved the ending. The story was very intense and made me cringe during certain scenes, so if you are a fan of thrillers, I think you'll really enjoy this book. The ending to The King was crazy and makes me want to pick up Checkmate ASAP! I'll be starting it as soon as I finish one other book...So excited to see how the "chess" series ends.

*I had received a review copy of this book earlier and I've already reviewed it. This second review was not required, I just wanted to share my thoughts on my reread. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
