“Johansen is becoming a master of the macabre and paranormal thriller, and her latest riveting Eve Duncan tale has it all, from ghosts and secret cult...more
UNFORTUNATELY, I then read three earlier books in Johansen's Eve Duncan Series and was seriously disappointed. The author uses what I feel is a most peculiar device throughout the Eve Duncan series — where a character is introduced .... who is obviously a good guy....saves lives, does good things to help find the perp and yet,...more
Catherine Line, a CIA agent's child was stolen from her 9 years ago. Now, she has finally manipulated the situation to where she can go after him, by rescuing Kelly from a hostage situation in Columbia. To help her, Catherine turns to Eve Duncan, a forensic sculptor, who lost her own daughter to a killer. At first, Catherine only wants Eve to develop a computerized generated, aged picture of Luke, Catherine's son, since he was only two when he was stolen. Eve and her partner Joe Quinn end up cau...more
Nine years ago, Luke was kidnapped by Sergei Rakovac. Sergei is one of the most powerful members of the Russian mafia. All this time, Catherine has wondered if Luke is dead or alive. Sergei can not be touched. He made a deal with the CIA. In exchange for helping Catherin...more
I fell in love with Eve and Joe right away. Both characters were strong without being overbearing, co-dependent or pig headed. I want to learn more about Bonnie especially when I found out there are several books about Eve Duncan so I assume there is a back story there. Catherine also began to grow on me altho...more
Maybe it's because I was growing weary with the focus on the search for Bonnie and in Chasing the Night the focus was on a brand new character who, though very similar to Eve was also very much her own person. Catherine Ling was strong, vulnerable, charismatic, honest and vicious. She's one of the first new characters who isn...more
Catherine Ling's (a CIA operative) son was kidnapped 9 years ago by a Russian crime boss whom she tried to take down at the CIA's instigation. In revenge...more
Don't get me wrong. I love this series. Iris Johansen is one of my favorite a...more
Considering Eve Duncan gets sucked into these adventures through a sense of responsibility... that's always a little far fetched. Makes friends too fast...goes places she shouldn't be going...pulls her Joe guy with her because he always feels responsible for her... The worst line in the book -and totally out of character for bleeding heart Eve Duncan- is when she tells a 14...more
CIA agent's two-year-old child was stolen in the night as a brutal act of vengeance. Now, eight years later, the torment of Catherine Ling's missing child is something she awakens to every day. Now, Eve must use he talents as a forensic sculptor to use age progression as a way to help Catherine find her child. As Eve gets drawn further into Catherine's horror, she must face...more
i almost gave up on this series. i have to admit, there are still some things that don't make sense, but i was willing to overlook them (like, what happened to joe's "special" effects from Pandora's Daughter?).
i liked that there was a dynamic between catherine and joe. i liked kelly, though she reminded me of the lex from Jurassic Park. and i really liked the way the next couple of books up.
but i have to admit, i miss jane. I WANT JANE AND MCDUFF AND TREVOR AND.
however, i'm hoping the se...more
Same goes for this one. The conversations were unnatural, stilted. I could imagine the author at her writing desk, stumbling one step forward, two back.
I recognize that my selections for escape reading are simpl...more
Catherine's world ripped apart when her 2 y.o son, Luke was kidnapped, she has a mother's instinct and ladies intuition that her son is alive and her enemy has him somewhere, he loves to to...more
I'm not going to bother rehashing the plot, since there's enough of that to go around. I'll stick more to its good and bad aspects. There's a lot to recommend the book, qu...more
