‘Quinn’ is tagged as the 2nd of a final trilogy; however, Iris Johansen’s ‘Eve Duncan’ series is the series this trilogy is based off of. If you want to be able to truly understand and appreciate this trilogy, I would highly recommend reading the Eve Duncan series first.

Iris Johansen’s ’Eve Duncan’ series has become a personal favorite of mine over the last decade. Personally fascinated by crime novels with interesting forensic tidbits at an early age, stumbling upon this series was quite a disc

Quinn is the second of Iris Johansen’s trilogy about Eve’s search for her daughter Bonnie and it is full of hard hitting action and a thriller that you’ll not soon forget. In this story we learn about Joe Quinn right from the moment he met Eve after the disappearance of Bonnie, she takes you deep into the psyche of a distraught woman fighting between hope and despair that her daughter would still be found alive and knowing it’s unlikely. She also gives us clues to the mystery and brings us ever ...more

I'm not sure why I started reading this series about one million books ago. I guess I liked the first one I read and continued on. They got 'old' many books back but I never give up. This one is the 2nd to the last in what I hear is the end of the series so I'm hoping I will soon be finished with them.

I don't like the characters in the book except for Joe Quinn. The plots are usually good [and this one is no exception] but the conversations are 'cold'. The last [I'm hoping] three books are Eve [

Shelves: awful
I read some of the earlier books in this series, so I thought it would be an entertaining way to pass some time. Even though I wasn't expecting much, Quinn was incredibly disappointing. While the previous books at least told a story with a beginning, a middle, and an ending, this one didn't even do that much. It was much like watching one of those retrospective episodes of a long-running television series--nothing new or interesting--but it was made worse because the whole muddle just stops with ...more

Iris Johansen has done it again. She reeled me into this book and I couldn't put it down and even knowing the next book, Bonnie, was coming out so we wouldn't find out who her murderer is yet I still wanted to scream at the end. She certainly knows how to keep a reader hanging and desperately seeking the next book. If you read my review of Chasing the Night and Eve you know that despite not having read all of the Eve Duncan books from the beginning I am still in love with this series. E

As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how dark the shadows of the soul can turn. But when he met Eve Duncan a decade ago, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose torment has ultimately fueled her twin desires to bring her missing daughter home and reveal the truth of her disappearance, no matter how devastating it may be. Eve's fateful first love, John Gallo, seems to hold the key to the mystery of young Bonnie's fate. With Joe's life h ...more

Another wonderful book, the second of the trilogy that has been eagerly anticipated.

Like "Eve", this book tells a complete story in itself, but is more meaningful as a follow-up to "Eve", the first book of the trilogy and is a continues covering the back story to the Eve Duncan series. It is the answer to many of the "I wonder . . ." questions that I've had over the years. I'm a fan of the Eve Duncan series, so this trilogy is a wonderful addition. Suspenseful, full of surprises and heading to a

Well, I must say the way it is written is a 5.5, but the idea of the furture, to the present to the past, you are so close to finding out who the killer is, then they go back into time with the next book. started it yesterday at 8am, put it down at 10pm, started it at 6am and just finished it at 5:50pm. Usually with trilogies i can read another book in between.

Joe Quinn is after the truth of what happened to Bonnie, Eve's daughter and although not everyone gets along they all have one thing in
Dec 27, 2012 Danica rated it it was ok
Although the first book, Eve, was definitely about her, this book literally had nothing to do with Joe Quinn. I was hoping that, like Eve, we would get to see about Joe's past and what his life was like growing up, but nope, we just had to sit through chapters of the initial search for Bonnie. I don't know about everybody else, but I had heard enough about these days throughout the rest of the previous books that I didn't really care. The only thing I am sure about is that Joe definitely breache ...more

The second of the trilogy that will end the Eve Duncan - Joe Quinn series of mysteries. I found this book disappointing and would not recommend it.

There is a great deal of back story about how Eve and Joe met, most of which has been covered or glossed over in the series of preceding mysteries. I found the inclusion of this information redundant, at times unbelievable (a federal agent giving a civilian full access to case files?)and, to be honest, boring. I kept reading because I respect the auth

I haven't read all of the Eve Duncan stories, but I've read a few here and there. This book has been one of my favorites so far. I began to care for some of the characters I hadn't before, and look forward to reading the last book in this trilogy.

While the characters were rather stiff and one-dimensional, IMHO, amazingly enough the book itself wasn't too bad. But the cliffhanger ending wasn't really my cup of tea. I'd prefer it if I was able to decide whether I wish to go on to reading the next installment based on a good story line and not because I'm compelled to do so in order to find out what happens in the last crucial scene of the second book. I'll read "Bonnie", but I'm not happy about it.

Gave this 4 stars because the writing and grammar was great and the book had no errors (that I caught).
*Some spoilers?*

This was not my favorite book though, despite the 4 star rating. I was really excited because, since the first book delved into Eve's past, I expected the same from Quinn. I would have liked to know more about his past, which never happens. It actually isn't from his point of view much, despite the title being "Quinn". It's mostly from Eve's perspective, again. Quinn is in the

My rating is 2.5 stars.

This is part of the Eve Duncan series and this novel is not a stand alone novel. In this one, we journey back to the past and learn about Joe meeting Eve for the first time. We also spend a good length of time with Eve's friend Catherine and John Gallo who is Eve's ex and a strong suspect in Bonnie's disappearance.

This was two short books in one. The first part was a prequel and was enjoyable. I might be bias on that aspect because Joe is my favorite character in this seri

Once again the book leaves you hanging!! Either a VERY poor selling tool for her newer books or she is ending this line of her stories. That is sad I would miss these, but it is understandable that my joy in reading them is way different than having to write them. But if she had started with this way of doing them, I never would have followed her books as I have.

I'm never disappointed in Iris! Can't say I'm happy about yet another cliffhanger ending and having to wait for the final book in this trilogy....but I guess I'll just have to learn how to be patient.

I disliked this book for many reasons.
I've ranted before about books that end with no closure whatsoever. even if a book is part of a series there should be some reward for finishing it. this book ended in the middle of a chase scene. what??
oh the angst. the endless, grinding, unrelenting, humorless angst. the protagonists either spent years in a foreign prison or had a child murdered or had a child kidnapped and tortured.

Good Gosh! I was waiting to see if there was a clue to the killer, and nothing! It was a wonderful book though! More people linked together and new relationships forming. I loved it! It's so much better to read the stories in order so you get the full blown effect. Iris Johansen slowly touches up on the past histories, but if you don't know what you are getting in to, the book can look boring or not good. Mrs. Johansen told me two more books were fixing to come out this year and I can't wait! I' ...more

Second of a trilogy that is loaded with passion and suspense, and of course leaves a committed reader panting for the final volume so that hopefully, all the mysteries, twist and turns will be resolved, this book begins where the first volume, Eve, left off. Joe Quinn is in a coma in a hospital on the cusp of death.

Ms. Johansen has been reporting the thrilling episodes in the lives of Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn in volume after volume for years, but this trilogy is my first intro to her writing and

If you haven't read Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series I would highly recommend it. They are based around Eve Duncan a forensic sculptor who use the skulls of unidentified children to sculpt what they look like and eventually identify them, sound sad but it is very interesting, she seems to have a sixth sense that makes here be sculpt these children. Everything is based on the fact that Eve's daughter was kidnapped/stolen when she was very young and she has never been found. Finding her daughter ...more

This is the second volume in a trilogy [the first was “Eve,” and the next “Bonnie”], wrapping up the mystery of the disappearance of Eve Duncan’s seven-year-old daughter who was presumably murdered. This novel gives a lot of background on how she and Quinn came to meet, fall in love and come together.

Of course, it has to begin with Quinn near death in the hospital from a knife wound, but making a superhuman effort to get out and rejoin the hunt for Bonnie’s killer, aided by CIA agent and friend

This is book two in the series that explains what happened to Bonnie in the Eve Duncan series. Though I enjoy Iris Johansen, these would be the only books I've read of that series in order and have a continued interest in. Probably because each of these books ends in a cliff hanger - I'm immediately like - WTF happens?!

I did enjoy the contrast from book one to two in that in the first book Eve's relationship with Gallo is explained - there is quite a bit of history that is given there. In this b
