She’s broken free. But danger is in hot pursuit. And rescue is nowhere in sight.... Eve Duncan is on the run. Kidnapped by Jim Doane, a mysterious man who wants her to complete a sinister forensic sculpture, she now has no time to savor the victory of escaping from him. He’s back on her trail and closing in fast. At the mercy of the Colorado wilderness, she struggles to outwit and outrun him, but the odds are stacked high in his favor.
Doane desperately needs Eve’s skill to reconstruct the skull of his son - a sick and twisted killer who still holds Doane in thrall from beyond the grave - and like a man possessed, he refuses to let anything stand in his way. The CIA has its own reasons for tracking Eve’s nemesis. And those closest to Eve - Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire - are doing everything in their power to rescue her, while a hired gun named Lee Zander is on a personal mission to eliminate Doane.
But does that mean he can be trusted to save Eve? Zander’s checkered history may be tied to Eve’s own past in a shocking way - or he may be nothing more than another assassin with a long-standing grudge and an overactive trigger finger. Using everything from cutting-edge technology to animal whisperers, the hunt for Eve is on. And the hourglass is almost empty.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I have listened to all the previous Eve Duncan books and this was right up there. I do agree with the comments about the narrator. I love her voice, but it would have been a much better idea to have a male voice for the male characters.
things that make you "hmmm"
Perhaps if you have never read any of the Eve Duncan series, it may be enjoyable. But just as the Scarpetta series from Cornwall took a wrong turn, these books have as well in my opinion.
Way too much psychoanalytical mumbo jumbo - got really tired of the characters psychoanalyzing each other! A waste of money too if you have read the other books because the story line spends an inordinate amount of time explaining the previous story lines and characters. I liked the forensic science and true detective work in the previous books. This trilogy is nothing more than a reunion and very little new.
not really, but there really were TOO many in one book, so perhaps that isn't her fault.
I previously have really enjoyed the Eve Duncan series. I hope future books get back to forensic science and mystery.
if it were one or two books....3 was way to many
talked less about how the world revolved around eve and how wonderful she was....sickly sweet.....
she doesn't do accents well.......
I love the main characters in this book and I am a believer in things to do with people having extra skills but come on....that many people in one book and Seth Calebs abilities..little over the top...
I felt cheated that I had to read and pay for three books to get this story. I am a creature of habit and when I start something I have to finish it...but I will be on the lookout next time as to not have to listen to so much to get a story....
I find myself ready for this series to end,but loving the other story lines..I love Caleb and want to see where him and Jane will end up..Im an Eve Duncan fan,but her this story I dont know
Im sorry but there was no need for this book. Pretty dry and not much mystery! Eve is running away...the end
I read too much, like most genre, & am picky about narrators. I like strong characters, great dialogue, & quirky bits!
There were hours too many of running through the wildwoods, the ending was an abrupt cliffhanger and some of these characters are just unbelievable. So difficult to stay engaged. If you are invested in Eve's world, you need some closure and this was not it...I feel Iris is just milking the series now.
Humph...what ending? Not a single one.
No, but I thought she did a fine job. No complaints there.
