    "Dissappointing & Annoying"

    I'm a fan of Iris Johansen and the Eve Duncan books. However, I could hardly get through this audio book. I knew within the first couple of minutes - the narrator's voice was like nails on a chalkboard. In my opinion, she sounded like an old, nasty school teacher. She gave everyone (except maybe Bonnie) a bitter, nasty, hateful voice (especially Joe).

    The storyline was ridiculous. I kept thinking to myself - why am I listening to this???? (Okay, maybe better than the static on the radio while travelling - but not much better). Joe takes on such a spoiled brat persona (could be the narrator though that helps portray this image). Without giving anything away to readers who may enjoy (??) the book, I just want to say that maybe it's time to retire the Eve Duncan books and move onto something else. Seems like the author is out of good storylines. Don't waste your money or your book credits.

    "Blood Game/ Eve Duncan"

    Being familar witht the character of Eve Duncan, I enjoyed hearing another story in this series. My only probelm is I wish I had read the book instead. Listening to the discription of the killers intake of his vicitms blood was hard to listen to. If I'd read it I could have easily skimmed over it. But the story was compelling and full of new areas of interest for the main characters.
    In the first review by a poster they said the characters where "not fully developed", I disagree. These characters have been fully developed in previous books, and to rehash everthing would be too lenghty and redundent. If you have read this series previously you will know and understand the new "unbelievable", to quote the poster, events that take place. These events add to the characters depth and create new avenues for them to head towards. Be patient and read through other books from the series before you make a final decision.

    "Take it or leave it"

    Although the story line was very good, I found myself losing interest whenever all the mushy love emotions were overly expounded on. If I wanted to listen to a romance novel filled with a lot of drama, I'd buy one of those instead of what I expected to be a mystery thriller.

    "A Good Listen - Just as Expected"

    I listen to books for entertainment, not great enlightenment or deep thinking. Iris Johansen delivers her expected formula with familiar characters and satisfying attachments to each other. Do I get annoyed with Eve for her relentless pursuit of her child's remains? Sometimes, but I can't put myself in her place in either fact or fiction, thank God, and I'm willing to suspend disbelief for the sake of a story that keeps one part of my mind occupied while another part focuses on something else. If you haven't been following Eve, I recommend starting at the beginning. Jennifer van Dyke delivers a very satisfying narration and has become one of my favorites, perhaps even as high on the list as the much missed Anna Fields.

    "Silly"

    Eve Duncan, a famed forensic sculptor whose daughter disappeared when she was a child, has been searching for her ever since. Her relentless search usually places her in the path of one deadly killer or another from which she barely escapes with her life.

    The is the second Eve Duncan book I've read and I found it, well, just silly. Another serial killer "du jour" book, the author threw in a little of the supernatural just for fun. And it might have been if the dialog hadn't been so overwrought, bordering on absurd. It follows the same formula as the first book I read and was, quite frankly, a bit of a bore and I nearly didn't finish it. I won't read another of this series.

    "Missing the mark"

    A big disappointment -- unless you like vampires. Also one should read the previous novel as there was much reference to it. I couldn't wait for it to end; almost didn't bother to finish it.

    "Possibly the worst book I ever read"

    Characters were poorly developed, and unbelievable. Even the protagonists were unlikable, rude and insulting with each other. The plot was predictable with no surprises, disgusting with no suspense. I think this was meant to be a horror story, but it was really just a joke. Sorry I spent money on it.
