Overview

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.

Meet the Author

Iris Johansen
Iris Johansen is the New York Times bestselling author of Hunting Eve, Taking Eve, Sleep No More, What Doesn’t Kill You, Bonnie, Quinn, Eve, Chasing the Night, Eight Days to Live, Blood Game, Deadlock, Dark Summer, Pandora’s Daughter, Quicksand, Killer Dreams, On the Run, Countdown, Firestorm, Fatal Tide, Dead Aim, No One to Trust, and more. And with her son, Roy Johansen, she has co-authored Close Your Eyes, Shadow Zone, Storm Cycle, and Silent Thunder.

Biography

After her two children left home for college, Iris Johansen decided to devote her new found free time to writing. Since she loved reading romance novels, she penned a love story, and found to her surprise that "I was just as voracious a writer as I was a reader." During the 1980s, her name was emblazoned on dozens of slender volumes featuring spirited adventuresses, passionate mystery men, and smoldering love scenes. These days, Johansen is one of a posse of former romance writers dominating the New York Times bestseller lists.

Early on in her career, Johansen developed the habit of following characters from book to book, sometimes introducing minor characters in one novel who then become major figures in another. She developed families, relationships, and even fictional countries in her romance novels, which "stretched the boundaries of the standard formulas," according to Barbara E. Kemp in Twentieth-Century Romance and Historical Writers. In 1991, Johansen broke out of category romance (a term for short books written to conform to the length, style and subject matter guidelines for a publisher's series) with The Wind Dancer, a romantic-suspense novel set in 16th-century Italy. She followed it with two sequels, Storm Winds and Reap the Wind, to form a trilogy, then wrote several more stand-alone romance novels before The Ugly Duckling was published in 1996.

The Ugly Duckling was her first book to be released in hardcover -- and the first to significantly broaden her readership beyond her romance fan base. Since then, Johansen's plots have gotten tighter and more suspense-driven; critics have praised her "flesh-and-blood characters, crackling dialogue and lean, suspenseful plotting" (Publishers Weekly). Some of her most popular books feature forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, who first appeared in The Face of Deception in 1998. But Johansen seems equally comfortable with male protagonists, and her books have crossed the gender division that often characterizes popular fiction. Indeed, Publishers Weekly called The Search "that rarity: a woman's novel for men."

Good To Know

Johansen rewrote the ending of Reap the Wind for its reissue in 2002. "I couldn't resist tightening and changing the climax to correspond with my changed ideas on plot structure but the story is basically the same," she explained in a Q&A on her publisher's web site.

Many of her early novels were written for the Loveswept series from Bantam Books; bestselling authors Sandra Brown and Kay Hooper also wrote for the series.

    I bought all three of this series, so out of stubbornness, I kep

    I bought all three of this series, so out of stubbornness, I kept reading.  These three books together would have made one really good book.  As it is, I have never seen so much boring, irrelevant, monotonous dialog in my whole life.  What on earth was she thinking?  It's really too bad she so totally destroyed a decent story.

    Trilogy is same book, three times!

    I swore I wouldn't purchase another one of her books since the first two were so repetitive. But, I did when I read it was the last of the trilogy. Ugh, was I stupid. Same book, for the third time. ONE book would have covered it and been an 'okay' read.

    Finally, an end to #16!

    This is like watching a soap opera on daytime TV, as each episode leaves you hanging to have to wait for tomorrow, next week, or perhaps next season to find out who lives and who dies. Ms. Johansen, you're better than this.

    Too much waste of words

    Like everyone else is saying too monotonous. A lot of unnecessary dialogs and a a spin on the story that went away of everything and that you could see it coming from miles away. I've read every single one of Ms Johansen books but lately the difference in the writing is huge from the first to these last books. Sometimes I think she's not the one writing the stories anymore. If you haven't done it, read Killer Dreams, No One to Trust or The Search. A big difference from the last books

    the story was good but drawn out. The dialog was a bit monotono

    the story was good but drawn out. The dialog was a bit monotonous . Combining all 3 in one book, cutting out some dialog, would have made an exceptional story.

    Good read

    I have been reading all the Eve Duncan series. I have felt she is too self important. I love the writing style of Iris Johansen and all her books are easy to follow the story and keep me very entertained; I read them almost non-stop. I get a little irritated with 'Nothing else matters but Eve'. The characters love for her so great they will let everything else go for her, they live for her, while she would easily let her life end to be with her daughter.
    All-in-all it is a great book, she is heroic, kind and a bit defiant. I love that and would recommend all the Eve Duncan series. They are great stories, wonderful series and none of the characters are weak. The stories flow well and can be read more than once.

    AWESOME!!!

    I loved it!!!!! I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! I hope Ms. Johansen will always write on these characters. I loved seeing all of Eve's friends and loved ones in this trilogy. I thought it was exciting and all that a good Eve Duncan story should be. I don't think I will ever tire of her, or the spin-offs of this series.

    Thanx for another sleepness night Ms. Johansen, and revealing more to the story behind what makes Eve who she is (no plot spoilers!). Can't wait to see where time takes Caleb and Jane.

    Keep them coming!!

    About what you expect

    Like other reviewers, I think this trilogy could have been put into one good book. Since I read the first two, I wanted to finish the series, but it didn't seem to be up to her normal work.
