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.

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.

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

Silencing Eve

Tonight I had almost ten hours left. I was so into the story that I finished only to wish there was more. It had all my favorite characters from the Eve books. Elizabeth Rodgers is an excellent narrator. The voices and accents were so different for each character that if I didn’t know better I would think each character had a different narrator.

  • Overall

Good mystery.

Although I did not read or listen to the prior book I was able to follow the characters as they were introduced with explanation of how they fit into Eve's life. Fast pace and several twists and turns.

Too sappy

just a bit too sappy for me, and if I have to hear another possessive pronoun applied to a name I might scream (your Bonnie tor example )

MADDENING

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

She has a good voice and I enjoyed her characters accents.

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

The book was good in alot of places. The thing that turned me off was Jane having to do everything and not wanting (ha ha) anybody else to help. If you love someone as much as she loves Eve why wouldn't you want everyone helping you why did it always have to be only her?

Any additional comments?

Don't be so stubborn makes for a better read if all are involved. People like Jane drive me crazy. My way or the highway bull.

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!

Not too bad!

Although the narrator was good, the story was pretty poor. Almost every character was analysing each other, without thinking about the goal, in front of them.
