Full disclosure: I have read a couple of Iris Johansen's books before but this was the first Eve Duncan book I read. To her credit, I didn't feel like I was lost because I didn't have a lot of the characters' back stories, nor did I feel like she was throwing in random background pieces in order to "catch me up". I've read books by other authors who have done this and it makes for some tedious reading.
The plot line itself was enough to keep my interest and ...more

What will keep me up at night are the images Johansen painted in my mind of the children who had been killed by Varak and his mercenar ...more
I love this series from Iris Johansen. I find forensic sculpture fascinating all by itself, and as always, wished there were more of it in this book. Given that, this was a page-turner. The incredible evil that men can inflict upon other humans is appalling, and it was hard to read about some of that in this novel....even though you know THIS is fiction, you stil ...more
Eve is not happy that Jill has not been totally honest with her. But once she sees where the massacre happened and that most the victims where children she knows that she has to stay. And as usual when Joe discovers the truth behind everything he goes wherever Eve is and will do whatever he has to do to keep her safe
Although this was only a preview of the actually book, Iris Johansen is one of my favorite authors. What I did read was only a appetitizer this truly looks like it is going to be another amazing Eve Duncan book. I can't wait to be able to read the full book. For those the love the Even Duncan series I believe this one will be a wonderful addition to the series, I would certainly recommend it ...more
Iris Johansen is one of my go to authors, therefore I was excited to win this book. I haven't read all of the books in the series but I have read a lot of them. Even though it is a part of series you can easily read it and not be lost In my opinion, this book took a different approach than earlier ones but I was not disappointed. While were times when I felt this book dragged a little I enjoyed this book overall.
I've read all of the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen. To be honest I've had a bit of readers fatigue with the Eve Duncan series, as of the last couple books. So i was pleasantly surprised when i picked this one up, and wasn't struggling to get through it. It captured my attention from the very beginning. It was a solid book, and i really enjoyed it.
