Publisher's Summary

A CIA agent’s two-year-old child was stolen in the night as a brutal act of vengeance. Nine years later, Catherine Ling’s instincts - maternal and professional - tell her that her son is still alive, but she needs the help of someone as driven and obsessed as she is to find him - and that person is Eve Duncan. Eve has walked this same path and shares Catherine’s nightmare, having endured the disappearance of her own daughter, Bonnie. Now Eve must raise her game as a forensic sculptor to another level, using the science of age progression to unite mother and son. But as she is drawn deeper into Catherine’s horror, Eve must face looming demons of her own.

Whoever took Bonnie is still out there, and Eve will never rest until he is brought to justice and Bonnie brought home. With two indomitable women enduring the worst fear any mother can imagine, Iris Johansen’s latest thrill ride is a testament to a mother’s fierce love and devotion and a gut-wrenching journey into the darkest places of the soul.

Investigate another case with Eve Duncan.

    "Iris Johansen is BACK!"

    I loved this! Catherine is a fabulous character. I adore the idea of other characters loving someone other than Eve--and there is so much to love as she is a female version of Joe: gorgeous, directed, strong. She brings out the sexiness of Joe. He was starting to act like a soppy idiot; taking all of Eve's insistance on putting herself and everyone in danger AND all the men who for some reason seem to want Eve.

    I even like her side kick Kelly, another Jane BUT with substance--her role is more than just loving Catherine. She can and does help the group in more ways than just her talent.

    I can hardly wait for the next book--and I had about given up on Johansen's and her very rude female characters. Chasting the Night allows the reader to LIKE the female characters--and respect them because they don't do very stupid things.

    "Waste of Credits & Time"

    I think this is maybe the worst book I've ever listened to. If I could give it a negative star I would. The storyline is not believable, the characters unreal, accents bad and dialogue written at a grade school level. The characters have to say everything out loud because the author appears to be limited in conveying feelings or emotions through the written word - causing one reviewer to state "show, don't tell". This is the first book I've listened to by this author so maybe that is why it seems worse to me than to others. My husband tried to listen to it and just gave up.

    Story
    "Annoying - Don't Bother"
    What disappointed you about Chasing the Night?

    There was very little that was believable. The characters were just annoying. It seemed like half the book was "...you can't..." and "...yes I can and will..." Boring!


    What was most disappointing about Iris Johansen’s story?

    How could a forensic scientist be ruled by so little science and so much emotion. This was a soap opera.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jennifer Van Dyck’s performances?

    Maybe


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

    None that I can think of - I made it half way through by putting it on 1.5X speed. Still only made it half way.

    "First confusing, then boring!!!!"

    I was hoping to found a new series to get involved with or an author to be excited about. I tried to get into it - but no go. Never again.

    "Chasing the Night"

    I love all of the Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn books and this was an outstanding book to use your credits on.
    She have two more books coming out this year the 1st one is called Quinn and the 2nd book will be called Eve. I got my mother hooked to all of the Eve Duncan books and she want more.

    "No more Johansen for me"

    I used to really like this author, but the past couple of books have been below expectation. I won't waste credits any more. The narrator drives me to distraction. She breathes in the middle of phrases, she uses simply awful accents for the characters, and her voice is annoying. As for Johansen, I really wish she would learn the writer's guideline to "show, don't tell." All in all, this was a good story but badly written with a terrible narrator.
