Preview — Quinn by Iris Johansen
#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen explores the darkest corners of the human heart as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan closes in on the killer who stole her daughter so many years ago.
As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love
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 ...more
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 [ ...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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
finally - the protagonists were all just so darn tough an ...more
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 ...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 ...more
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 ...more
It was nice to see how Joe and Eve met, although it was shortly after Eve’s daughter Bonnie disapp ...more
Fast forward to present day and Joe Quinn makes a surprising recovering. Eve Duncan is still searching for Bonnies killer and has ...more
