When Eve Duncan gave birth to her daughter, she experienced a love she never knew existed. Nothing would stand in the way of giving Bonnie a wonderful life - until the unthinkable happened and the seven-year-old vanished into thin air. Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape. But a new Eve emerged: a woman who would use her remarkable talent as a forensic sculptor to help others find closure in the face of tragedy. Now with the help of her beloved Joe Quinn and CIA agent Catherine Ling, Eve has come closer than ever to the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that Bonnie’s father is a key player in solving this monstrous puzzle. And that Bonnie’s disappearance was not as random as everyone had always believed...

“Johansen’s trilogy takes the reader on an action-packed journey.” (Booklist)
I found this story incredibly difficult to listen to. I waded through (as I did with the last two IJ books) just so that I would know what had happened to Bonnie. and could say a final goodbye to anything written by Iris Johansen. I don't know whether I have matured as a reader or if Iris has just given up / passed her books on to be ghost written. The habit of using
The Snowman by Jo Nesbo
solid, articulate, really, as good as possible given the material
i have no idea. i don't think additional characters are the issue.
I bought this audiobook based on the positive reviews and found myself being very disappointed.
I think it was the dialogue that did it for me. It was repetitious, dull, and used in excess. Fast-forwarding 10-15 minutes at a time did not matter as the characters were still harping on about the same things over and over and over and over and over again.
In short, I was bored by this book.
First of all, the narrator grated on my nerves. Can't say exactly why, but you know how it is. Sometimes you really like the voice, and sometimes you don't. Secondly, I thought the plot was rather corny, the characters vague. After a while, I didn't care where the heck Bonnie was.
I particularly didn't like her voice of Bonnie.
Yes. This story tied up a lot of loose ends that were left dangling in other story lines.
The pace was a bit slow at times. There was a lot of time spent tracking down key suspect in story. I would have liked the character relationship between Gallo and Katherine developed more.
I enjoyed it.
Yes. Finally...we know how and why and the who of Bonnie's death.
Not what I had expected for the final story. It was a bit anticlimactic. The bad guys from all other stories gave the impression that something much different (and more horrible) happened to Bonnie.
I loved the book, it is one of my favorite Eve Duncan books. With following Eve for over a decade I am so happy Eve finally found Bonnie, but I am not sure how I feel now that the quest is over.
I liked the way the story line turned back and linked the past to current events
Bonnie forgiving her killer
Trust, Hope and Love will save you
This was a great ending to a wonderful series. I enjoyed getting to know them, They kinda feel like old friends and I will miss them if this is truely the last book in the series.
Finally found her!
Yes. It had a lot of twists and turns.
I've not listened to any of her previous performances but this was very good.
Disregard this review if you must because I didn't listen very long. It became clear to me that I should have read other books in the series or something before this one. This was not the best use of a credit for me.
Yes/No, the reader brings book to life.
Her helping everyone at the end. A strong spirit, I cried...
Eve, but all of the characters were unique
Revealing story of life in death.
I found this book to be very long-winded. After listening to the first few chapters I skipped to the second to the last chapter, in a sense listening to a very abridged version. The entire mystery is "what happened to Bonnie"? Since I had read prior Eve Duncan mysteries I knew about Bonnie and wanted to find out what happened to her. I found out but the listen was less than enjoyable. The narration was breathless and just plain odd. Don't recommend this one.
