Publisher's Summary

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan has a rare - and bittersweet - gift. Her unique ability to reconstruct the identity of the long dead from their skulls has helped bring closure to parents of missing children. For Eve, whose own daughter was murdered and her body never found, the job is a way of coming to terms with her personal nightmare.

When she is approached by billionaire magnate John Logan to reconstruct the face of an adult murder victim, only his promise of a sizable charitable contribution persuades her to accept. It's a simple bargain, yet its' the most dangerous one she'll ever make. The warning signs are clear. There is the specially equipped lab Eve is taken to in a country inn turned high-tech security fortress in rural Virginia. Surveillance cameras monitor her every move. The telephones are tapped. And then there is Logan himself - by turns ruthless, charming, and desperate.

But it's too late for Eve to walk out. The skull has begun to reveal its shocking identity, trapping her in a frightening web of murder and deceit. To free herself, she has no choice but to expose that identity and to trust Logan, the man who put her life in danger, a man who may see her as an expendable pawn.

    "Great story; poor narration"

    This was the first Iris Johanson book I've read. She tells a great story with many sub-plots and surprising twists. If I could rate the story by itself, I would give it 4 1/2 stars. I'll be downloading many more of Johanson's books. Unfortunately, the narrator of this book earns only 1 star. There are many characters in the book and she uses pretty much the same voice for all of them. The other problem was that she took only the slightest pause between chapters and never gave an indication that a scene had changed. These things made it difficult to follow the story and I found myself having to go back several times to pick up a lost story line.

    I was very lonely as a teen and books were my escape. Thanks to my father who introduced me to the love of reading.

    "First Rate!"
    If you could sum up The Face of Deception in three words, what would they be?

    Political, Thriller, Trapped


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

    It was a great listen for sure..At first I was not to sure if I was going to get into the political setting part of the listen but was intrigued with the plot and taken in with the characters. I love forensic books..that is why I chose this book to listen.


    Have you listened to any of Jill Hennessy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Never listened to Jill Hennessy but she made the listen very remarkable and will be looking forward to hearing her in the future.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "No one will believe you or hear you scream"


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to hearing more of this series in time.
