Publisher's Summary

Eve Duncan’s mission in life is to bring closure to the families who have experienced the agony of a missing child. As a forensic sculptor, she is able to piece together bones, create a face, and match a name to a child who would have otherwise gone unidentified. Eve is brilliant, driven, and tormented - because her own daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her years ago. Now, with the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, a startling piece of evidence is uncovered in the quest to find Bonnie, leading to a connection that had been all but buried. Catherine challenges Eve with a name: John Gallo, a man from Eve’s own past, seemingly raised from the dead, whose whereabouts are unknown. Could Gallo be the missing piece to the puzzle that has haunted Eve for years? Why was he in Atlanta just before Bonnie’s disappearance? And what kind of darkness was he hiding? With a brilliant narrative that exposes Eve Duncan’s early life, exploring her history and motivations like no other novel before, Eve reveals long-guarded secrets and is guaranteed to keep Johansen fans holding their breath for more.

Investigate another case with Eve Duncan.

Dont waste your time or book credit on this one!

I completely agree with the other reviews, and wish I had waited to read them before I picked up this disappointing book. The narrator's voice was dreadful, the plot unremarkeable, best left on the shelf!

Rubbish

What disappointed you about Eve?

The whole story line was rubbish. If it had been a hard cover book, I would have thrown it away.

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

No

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Van Dyck’s performance?

I think she did an excellent job with bad material

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

Bonnie, Bonnie, Bonnie. Plus the constant asking if whoever, had killed her. I would have knocked her on the head. Eve, that is.

Awful

"Audible hopes you have enjoyed this book". I DID NOT! Eve is getting dumber with each book and I found myself rolling my eyes over and over at the dumb, dumb antics and the even dumber dialog. I am sick to death of hearing about "her 'Bonnie" and now an entire book that revolves around this over worked subject. And did we really need to spend most of the first half on the crazy, unbelievable teenage sexual relationship? Seriously, thinking she is not going to get pregnant by taking one pill? I cannot believe the shoddy work here. The other reviewer was correct with her comments "what about Joe"? And this is the worst narrator I have heard. As soon as the book started I remembered why I did not want to get another Eve book. She emphasizes the wrong words and frequently each word of a sentence. Her sinister voice is just plain ridiculous. I could barely finish the book and then was sorry I wasted my time with that ending.

Complete disappointment

After "Chasing the night" where Iris finally gave her readers a strong woman that was sexy AND smart, she gives us Eve, the Eve that tries to protect a man that has spent the last 11 books rescuing her from her own stubborn stupidity. She doe it by running away with the father of her dead child. And just to show how much of an idiot she is, she thinks that Joe (her lover and hero) won't come after her.

Iris does her best to make the old lover (the father) appear dangerous and sexy--and all the time, the reader is screaming, "WHAT ABOUT JOE???"

The only hope a reader can cling to is that Eve gets shot and joins the only creature she truly cares about, her Bonnie--Joe runs away with Katherine, or that Eve ends up with her ex and leaves Joe to find someone who will love him back.

For anyone that cares about Joe--and Bonnie, skip this one, don't spend your credit on it. Wait for "Joe" and see if Joe finally gets something for all his devotion.

Worst narration ever!

The book was solid but the narrator's female voices sounded very old and the male voices sounded nerdish. Love this author though!

Duncan series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Love these books!! Have read all the others. First listen. Not wild about the narrator but not too bad. Can't wait to finish the series. Top notch stuff

What other book might you compare Eve to and why?

Kathy Reich's books about Temperance Brennan

Not Johansen's Best

I wanted to like this but gave up after about an hour. Get it from a friend or your library instead unless you are a die hard fan.

Detached

Would you try another book from Iris Johansen and/or Jennifer Van Dyck?

Probably not

Would you ever listen to anything by Iris Johansen again?

Her performance was not the main problem that I had with the book

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

Any additional comments?

It seemed that the story wasn't complete. It skipped times in Eve's life and didn't make sense
