Publisher's Summary

When she becomes a madman's target, Eve Duncan's daughter Jane must team up with longtime love interest Seth Caleb in this suspense novel from the number one best-selling author of Smokescreen.

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan and ex-Navy Seal Joe Quinn are about to give Seth Caleb their trust for the most important duty of his life: keeping their daughter, Jane, safe at any cost. Her talent as an artist has caught the attention of a brilliant psychopath with a violent past.

Seth, Jane's strongest ally and fiercest protector, is determined to keep her out of danger, but that becomes nearly impossible when Jane is forced to take matters into her own hands and confronts the madman who wants her for himself...and wants Seth Caleb dead.

As Jane and Seth chase down their bloodthirsty adversary, they finally commit to a life together - in the culmination of the epic love story that fans have been eagerly anticipating. As the two come face to face with danger, one thing is made clear: It will take both of them working together to confront and defeat this evil.

Child torture, excellent narrator

I have read all of the Eve Duncan and Jane McGuire books, but I think I am done. Although the narrator was excellent, she couldn’t make up for the child torture and blood. I dragged myself through the book because I cared what happened with Jane and Seth. Lisa didn’t seem to have any personality except to please Seth, despite the places she had been and full life she’s lead. I guessed what was coming at the climax of the story.

Twist and turns totally fun and intense

The family all have their jobs . Changes in Michael opened to all. Like that familiar characters that interact and grow with trust more and more with all Iris Johansens books

Seth and Jane together

I liked that Seth and Jane finally get to work on the same side. I didn't like what happened to the child, though. A lot of graphic detail. Elizabeth Rodgers did a great narration.

Finally

At last. After years of this author perfecting the beautiful, intelligent, resourceful, talented heroine only to ruin it by making her turn into a bratty, whiney female unable to experience love and intimacy with an equally string hero because of FEAR, the author finally lets Jane understand the loving Caleb does not make her weak . Yes , she is strong enough to love him and not lose herself. Hallelujah. Can we hope for the same for Kendra and Adam or Catherine and Cameron? Please write more in those two series so that we can see them capable of both loving and being strong

Love Caleb and Jane!

This story was action packed and full of interesting characters. I loved getting into the relationship between Caleb and Jane much deeper than we have in the past. I've always found him to be so interesting and was a little annoyed with the way Jane has treated him. Glad to see her eyes are opened to how she really feels for him in this book.

Excellent Listen!

I love the Eve Duncan series! The only thing disappointing was the fact that I goofed and read reviews beforehand that didn't give a spoiler alert and revealed a very important detail/event I would rather have discovered while listening. This was a really good listen and I think all the die hard fans will be pleased. Now that I'm finished with this series so far, I'm anxious for the newest addition to be released this summer. In the meantime, I'm going to check out Iris Johansen's new Alisa Flynn series.

If you like suspense, action, love story, supernatural, villains, and heroes all bundled into a story, I recommend this series!
