Publisher's Summary

When Eve Duncan gave birth to her daughter, she experienced a love she never knew existed. Nothing would stand in the way of giving Bonnie a wonderful life - until the unthinkable happened and the seven-year-old vanished into thin air. Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape. But a new Eve emerged: a woman who would use her remarkable talent as a forensic sculptor to help others find closure in the face of tragedy. Now with the help of her beloved Joe Quinn and CIA agent Catherine Ling, Eve has come closer than ever to the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that Bonnie’s father is a key player in solving this monstrous puzzle. And that Bonnie’s disappearance was not as random as everyone had always believed...

    "painful"
    What disappointed you about Bonnie?

    I found this story incredibly difficult to listen to. I waded through (as I did with the last two IJ books) just so that I would know what had happened to Bonnie. and could say a final goodbye to anything written by Iris Johansen. I don't know whether I have matured as a reader or if Iris has just given up / passed her books on to be ghost written. The habit of using


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Snowman by Jo Nesbo


    What three words best describe Jennifer Van Dyck???s performance?

    solid, articulate, really, as good as possible given the material


    What character would you cut from Bonnie?

    i have no idea. i don't think additional characters are the issue.

    "Repetition to death"

    I bought this audiobook based on the positive reviews and found myself being very disappointed.
    I think it was the dialogue that did it for me. It was repetitious, dull, and used in excess. Fast-forwarding 10-15 minutes at a time did not matter as the characters were still harping on about the same things over and over and over and over and over again.
    In short, I was bored by this book.

    "Oh my goodness. :("
    What disappointed you about Bonnie?

    First of all, the narrator grated on my nerves. Can't say exactly why, but you know how it is. Sometimes you really like the voice, and sometimes you don't. Secondly, I thought the plot was rather corny, the characters vague. After a while, I didn't care where the heck Bonnie was.


    What was most disappointing about Iris Johansen’s story?

    Everything.


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

    I particularly didn't like her voice of Bonnie.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None.

    Story
    "The end is here"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. This story tied up a lot of loose ends that were left dangling in other story lines.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The pace was a bit slow at times. There was a lot of time spent tracking down key suspect in story. I would have liked the character relationship between Gallo and Katherine developed more.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I enjoyed it.


    Was Bonnie worth the listening time?

    Yes. Finally...we know how and why and the who of Bonnie's death.


    Any additional comments?

    Not what I had expected for the final story. It was a bit anticlimactic. The bad guys from all other stories gave the impression that something much different (and more horrible) happened to Bonnie.

    "The End of the Quest"

    I loved the book, it is one of my favorite Eve Duncan books. With following Eve for over a decade I am so happy Eve finally found Bonnie, but I am not sure how I feel now that the quest is over.

    Story
    "This might be one to trade in..."

    I have read other Iris Johansen stories and really liked them. I was very disappointed with this one though - the story was silly (the ghost element) and contrived. None of the characters were likable, even the ones I was supposed to like.

    The reader did not impress me. The one person with an accent was lovely. The children were okay. The male voices sounded grimaced and anquished.

    Unlike some other reviewers, I didn't quit, but I frequently wondered; "Is it over yet?" I don't often review, but this book cannot be recommended.

    What would have made Bonnie better?

    to be believable. This author has had good books in the pas.


    What could Iris Johansen have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not be so "other worldly"


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Van Dyck?

    n/a


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    "how riduculous"

    "I listened to 14 books for THIS conclusion?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A less whiny Eve and a completely different ending.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Iris Johansen again?

    I'm unfortunately invested. I've already purchased thru the end of the Taking Eve Trilogy, so yes, I'll listen. But I truly don't expect my reviews to get any better.


    What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

    She can't do accents worth a damn. If she wants to hear a fake actor Cajun accent, she should listen to movie The Big Easy. She's too melodramatic. I just can't like her narrations.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bonnie?

    I realize that this book was a history compilation, but there was SO much repetition from previous books. But I also know it's necessary if someone unwittingly comes in to a series this long in the middle ....


    Any additional comments?

    I can't believe I've waited with bated breath for the resolution to what happened to Bonnie. I'm so disappointed with the ending. It was such a let down.

    "Closure!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would recommend this book, especially to Eve Duncan fans.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not necessarily. It definitely has "can't put this down (turn this off) yet" moments, though.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First audio book with Jennifer Van Dyck.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Always wanted to get to know Bonnie better. Now I want more of Catherine Lang.
