‘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 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

KNOWING THAT THIS IS THE NEXT TO LAST CHAPTER IN THE SERIES OF EVE DUNCAN I THOUGHT THIS BOOK WOULD BE JUST A FILLER AND NOT BE OF THE HIGHEST STANDARDS OF MS JOHANSEN. BOY WAS I WRONG. AS I TURNED THE PAGES IT ONLY GOT BETTER AND BETTER. ONE HAS TO BE A FAN OF EVE DUNCAN TO APPRECIATE THIS BOOK AND TO HAVE FOLLOWED THE STORY OF HOW HER DAUGHTER WAS ABDUCTED AND HER SEARCH FOR HER KILLER AND TRYING TO FIND HER BODY AND HAVE IT RETURNED TO HER TO BE BURIED OR AS SHE USES THE PHRASE TO COME HOME. ...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

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

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

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

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

I found it interesting that this was supposed to be Quinn's book. The first half of the book is the backstory of when Quinn first met Eve 9 years ago and how they eventually became a couple all while trying to find out who murdered Eve's daughter. The second half of the book was current day and mainly Catherine Ling and John Gallo - her first chasing him down because she thinks he is guilty of killing his daughter and then them working together to after a person they thinks knows who actually di ...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

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.
Stephanie
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 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.

Enjoyed. A means to get from Eve, Book 1, to Bonnie, Book 3.

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

*Review*

Iris Johansen's Quinn is the second part of a three book trilogy that is supposed to finally answer the question of what actually happened to Bonnie and who really killed her.

As the story opens, Joe Quinn, former Navy Seal, former FBI Special Agent, current ATLPD Detective, as well as Eve Duncan’s lover; lies near death after having been stabbed in the back by Paul Black. (Please read Eve so that you can understand the events that surrounds both books.)

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

‘Quinn’ opens where ‘Eve’ left off, with Joe Quinn barely clinging to life in the ICU after being stabbed by Paul Black. After a miraculous recovery, Joe and Eve follow Catherine Ling’s trail back to John Gallo, who disappeared after he was revealed as Bonnie’s killer in book one. Gallo doesn’t remember killing his daughter, but he can’t rule out the possibility due to his mental state after Korea.

It was nice to see how Joe and Eve met, although it was shortly after Eve’s daughter Bonnie disapp

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
