Silencing Eve: Eve Duncan Series | [Iris Johansen]

Silencing Eve: Eve Duncan Series

When it comes to Eve Duncan, never say never…Is she dead or alive? That is the question on everybody's lips. Eve appears to have been the victim of James Doane, the psychopath who kidnapped her and forced her to use her skills as a forensic sculptor to reconstruct the skull of his depraved son. That's what everyone attending her funeral thinks, at least. But not even some of her top-brass colleagues know for sure whether her death is a hoax - a way to ensnare her brutal captor once and for all.

Publisher's Summary

When it comes to Eve Duncan, never say never…Is she dead or alive? That is the question on everybody's lips. Eve appears to have been the victim of James Doane, the psychopath who kidnapped her and forced her to use her skills as a forensic sculptor to reconstruct the skull of his depraved son. That's what everyone attending her funeral thinks, at least. But not even some of her top-brass colleagues know for sure whether her death is a hoax - a way to ensnare her brutal captor once and for all. But even if Eve really is still alive, how much longer can this charade continue before she falls into even greater danger? CIA agent Catherine Ling will waste no time trying to find out. Years ago, Eve risked everything to help Catherine find her missing son. Now Catherine, along with Eve's beloved Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire, will go to the ends of the earth to save her.

    "Loved how she brought back old characters.."
    Where does Silencing Eve rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I read a lot of bad reviews about this series but I really enjoyed it. She brought back characters from her past book and we even got to meet some new. (Zander) I enjoyed the series and it was worth the money for 3 books.


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

    Yes

    An avid reader, demanding of the story, characters and narrator. Mysteries and historical fiction are my favorites.

    "Extreme Hyperbole & Unsophisticated Dialogue"

    I have read and reread the readers' reviews of this series. I just don't get it! How could this series have so many fans?

    Without judging the whole series, I assert that this book is not well written. Virtually every conversation is heated, almost every interpersonal relationship contains some sexual tension, every decision is critical ... there is no flow, no rhythm, there are no calm and easy moments.

    I particularly dislike Johansen's use of dialogue. It is awkward and unsophisticated; it made me think of a high school student who - having read some excellent mysteries - tried to imitate professional style but failed.

    The narrator made a mediocre book worse. She uses her voice to distinguish between accents (Scottish voice is well done, for example), but she doesn't do a good job distinguishing between three American women's voices. I struggled to keep up ("Who said that??").

    A waste of money, in my opinion. Blech.

    Story
    "Would have been better in one book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I would recommend to any of my friends.


    Has Silencing Eve turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has not. I have been an Iris Johansen/Eve Duncan fan for years. This was just too drawn out.


    What does Elisabeth Rodgers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can't really say. I listen almost exclusively.


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

    Basically, get to the point.


    Any additional comments?

    This story, like the predecessors, was good. It was just too drawn out.

    Story
    "Enough already!"
    What disappointed you about Silencing Eve?

    To be honest, I haven't even heard the ending! Some of Johansen's books go "on and on" with the DRAMA/ANGST....and this trilogy does just that. Perhaps the abridged version or even the condensed version would have been better. I hope Eve survives....if this were a book, I'd read the ending then bring the book back to the library! I got so tired of hearing the Dead Son's voice read (as it was written) that I was turned off by Johansen's story!


    Has Silencing Eve turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Probably not....escapist fiction is just that.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The women's voices could have sounded more feminine.


    What character would you cut from Silencing Eve?

    The Dead Son


    Any additional comments?

    Probably will request a credit from Audible....don't really care how the story ends....move on to something that will be fulfilling or at least exciting!

    Story
    "Not what I expect from Iris Johansen"
    Would you try another book from Iris Johansen and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    The last few Johansen's I've read I'd swear weren't written by Iris Johansen. Eve and Jane's character traits have so drastically changed I don't even want to read them any longer. They have went from very strong confident women to weak, winey, stupid characters. I'd swear some man is writing these books for Iris Johansen.


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

    The scene on the beach with Trevor, Jane, and Doan's wife. They play Trevor as this very smart person then he allows the idiot woman to walk away with her gun in hand. And then get yourself shot and killed? I was so mad by how much of idiots Johansen wrote those characters in different parts of the book, I almost didn't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Go back to writting the way you have in the past or retire your pen because people are going to stop reading and listening to your books.

    Story
    "Story line is getting very bad"
    Would you try another book from Iris Johansen and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    The story telling is getting not good. Elisabeth Rodgers needs help. Her words are so short and get under you skin. They are abrupt and lack feeling. The story line is getting bad. Iris needs to slow down and think about her story line. I used to like her writing but now it make me want to turn it off. "Dammit" is getting old. Maybe Elisabeth Rodgers needs to be replaced.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Iris Johansen again?

    Not if the stories don't get better


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She is horrible. Replace her


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

    Anger

    "Good but not as i expected"
    Any additional comments?

    I Love the Eve Duncan series.. Good book but some parts where drawn out a bit much. Not what I expected to be a finale.
