#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen is back with the first book in a chilling new Eve Duncan trilogy that asks the question: will Eve survive what lies ahead?
Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan's mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish—her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now, Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His twenty-five-year old son may or may not be dead and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence. But he cannot go to the police for answers without risking his own secrets and dark past, so instead he chooses a bold step to find the truth—a truth that takes Eve down a twisted path of madness and evil and into the darkest heart of her own history. Doane needs Eve Duncan’s skills and he'll do anything to get them.
Even if it means taking Eve.
I thought that after Sleep No More that Eve had no more mysteries in her past. I'd thought that after the completion of the Eve-Quinn-Bonnie trilogy. But nope, there's a whole new trilogy starting with this book, with one pretty important figure surrounding the mystery-Eve's dad.
So this book starts off innocently as it can be, what with Jane's dog being poisoned. And there's all this bustle around this-until Eve's taken, and it's reasoned out that the poisoning was a distraction. Which is worsened by Jane getting shot, though it could've hit anyone there, and affected the whole gang.
I really enjoyed the new character, Margaret, the animal whisperer. And in a paranormal sense, because they could send her images. And that was really interesting, and seeing as she's going to help some more, yeah, I can't wait for that!
That ending? That reveal, that Zander's her dad? This guy who we've seen in a few surrounding POV's, and a few of his own? And that he's the whole reason why Eve was taken? Yeah, a bit creepy!! But I just wanted more!
This was a really fantastic book, and I loved this kick off of this mini trilogy in the main series1
