This is the one series that I have read longer than any series, at least a decade. I read all 11 of her Eve Duncan series and when the author announced that she’d be making a final trilogy to fully resolve everything, well, I was ecstatic. The Eve Duncan series chronicles a mother losing her child and never having the closure she needed, never knowing what happened to her, her daughter Bonnie simply disappeared off the face of the Earth. T...more
Overall the book was good, I thought. Lots of action, it had Catherine and Gallo in it but, no Jane. As usual, Joe was his typi...more
Years ago a struggling single mother Eve Duncan had one shining light in her life, that was her daughter Bonnie and in an instant that light was extinguished. Eve could have easily given into the darkness that followed and at times she was cl...more

With this latest book, Ms. Johansen finally answers the question plaguing her readers since October of 1998. Who kidnapped and killed Eve Duncan’s daughter, Bonnie.
From the backliner:

*Genre* Romance/Mystery/Thriller/Last book in 3 part trilogy
World Renowned forensic sculptor Eve Duncan was a single mother who studied hard to put herself through school in order to give her seven-year-old daughter Bonnie a life she herself never had.
Then the unspeakable happened when Bonnie disappeared without a trace and her body has never been found. Eve painstakingly made her way through numerous possible leads and serial killers to get to the bottom of...more
The world of Eve Duncan is always alive. The characters make strong impressions in a world that you feel you can touch. BONNIE is just the same. The interesting thing is that I can’t really recall (and never really do) Johansen getting into too much description about t...more
Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn have a new lead. CIA agent Catherine Ling feels that she owes something to Eve for helping her locate her own lost son. She's investing all of knowledge and talent into finding Bonnie's body and her killer. Catherine is working with Eve's ex-lover and Bonnie's father, John Gallo and they have a su...more
On top of that the ending seemed too tied up in a perfect little bow to make sure th...more
I really like the Eve Duncan books. When they're about the forensic sculpting. Or Jane (especially when Mark Treveor is involved. Woot!). HOWEVER, this whole "who killed Bonnie," thing has been stretched out to a ridiculous extent. For the love of...
It's not epic, it's boring.
If you already like these stories, I suggest reading these all together. Get it over with. If you're thinking about start...more

Bonnie makes more appearances in this story to help aide the ones she loves. I still feel badly for Quinn. He's still being dragged through hell with Eve. This story didn't add anything to the characters for me. There wasn't any new building or strengthening of relationships. Did I gu...more

An uneasy feeling alerted Eve that something might happen to her daughter, Bonnie even before it did. A child’s attachment to her mother, her unwillingness to be apart from her and her feelings expressed letting her mother know she loves her but yet something just might be wrong. Looking into the sky and at the stars Bonnie loved learning about the galaxies but something about that evening would haunt Eve Duncan forever. Looking at the stars and t...more
I loved it from beginning to end.. the way Eve found out how and where and why her daughter was murdered was just beautifully written.. all this time we were lead as she was that she was brutally murdered.. and when in fact it...more
I gave the book 3 stars because of my love of the series from the beginning. I have to say I was disappointed in the trilogy of answers. The characters became flat and unlikeable. Jane didn't eve...more
Catherine, Joe, John, in finding out the truth. How do they come about finding out what really happened, what does a Priest and a SPECIAL BOY NAMED BEN have to do with mystery. Couldn't put it down. How do...more
I was able to figure out the "mystery" of what happened to Bonnie within a few short pages. I like to delve into books. In mysteries I crave action, danger, and puzzles. This...more
Please stop using the word "jerkily" in your books. When it happens several times during a chapter, I want to pull my hair out. And what were you thinking with this book? After all the books you've written so far about the search for Bonnie's body and this was the best you could come up with?
You've lost a reader.
It was hard for me to become drawn into the story. With the locale, I expected to "feel" the environment - New Orleans marsh/swamp, Georgian mountains - and felt disappointed. Repetitive usage of a particular word, action and thought became...more
