Publisher's Summary

The killer knew Eve Duncan all too well. He knew the pain she felt for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body was never found. He knew that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors she would insist on identifying 9 skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. And he knew that she wouldn't be able to resist the temptation of believing that one of those skeletons - the one belonging to a young girl - might be Bonnie's. But that is only the beginning of the killer's sadistic game. Soon the calls begin to come. Sly, insinuating, chilling. Whoever is on the other end of the line is watching. He sees every move Eve makes. He savors her pain. He could strike at any time. Now Eve Duncan must match wits with the most dangerous of psychopaths. A man for whom life and death is no more than a game. A killing game.

    "Thumbs Up"

    The book kept moving at a very good pace, never a lull in the action. It is similar to other serial killer mystery type books as far as the way events occur, but that's to be expected. There weren't any "unbelievable" characters or events as in other books with supercops or superkillers if you know what I mean. It is only a 5 hour book and it went really fast.

    The only problem I had with it was the female reader. It was difficult, especially in the beginning to determine which character was speaking. A few times I had to go back and figure it out. She didn't vary voices often enough, as I've heard other readers do. She did read with enthusiasm though which kept me interested the entire time. Overall, I thought it was very good.

    "Great book!"

    Great performance of a great book. Only drawback: the studio recording sounds like it was made over a telephone.

    "Stale"

    I've enjoyed previous books by her and of this "series," but it's beginning to become old. This one seemed forced and contrived. I'll still try a new book by her, but hope it has new life.
