Overview

Eve (Eve Duncan Series #12) by Iris Johansen

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 bring an identity 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. But now, with the help of a CIA agent, Eve has uncovered some startling new evidence: A man with a connection to Bonnie that had been all but buried. His name is John Gallo. He's from Eve's own past. His whereabouts are unknown. And he might just be the missing piece to the puzzle that has haunted Eve for years…

Let me preface this by saying I have long been a fan of this author and have read every book she has written. I got "hooked" when I accidently picked up #8 in the Eve Duncan series, without realizing it was a series..no turning back, I quickly read 1 through 7 to get up to speed, then continued till I read the entire Eve Duncan saga and then everything else Iris Johansen wrote. That said, I was so anticipating some closure for me as a reader and for the long-suffering Eve. I do not appreciate authors who FORCE the reader to buy the next book and unless you are willing to chuck it all and say enough is enough you will now have to wait for July to see "what next" and then I am sure you will have to wail another 3 or 4 months for JANE to see POSSIBLY THE ENDING...COULD IT BE...or no wait, maybe we have to wait for her to write BONNIE before we can finishing sighing, crying and feeling bad and possibly feel a little BETTER for this character. I believe a good auther makes you care about the characters, makes you get caught up in the plot and surroundings. So for anyone reading this entire series, you are not reduced to the greed of the author. I bought this curled up and was so excited to get a bit of a glimpse into the past to hopefully finish the "future" Eve....not so. I had found her last couple of Eve books to be rushed and disjointed feeling. If you compare the first 3 or 4 and the read the last 3 alone, it felt rusehd, no real depth to the plot or characters, which may be hard to do when you are reliving the same...OH WOE IS ME AND MY POOR BONNIE over and over. But for the most part, there was reason to continue to read and HOPE. Until now. To so blatantly end a book where you must buy the next one to know what happened to a beloved character from book before????? unfair. I read one review where she states....Will Joe live? so I am not divulging anything not already spoiled by another reviewer (though why someone would put that in a review where someone may not have read the book is beyond me...that ruined it for them now didnt it)Until this point, each of the books in this series reiterated the Bonnie plot line and Eves work so that you really could just pick up say book #8 as I did and totally enjoy reading it on its own merit...not so any more. I believe we will find the same "cliff hanging buy my next book" ending when we read Joe...we can only hopefully HOPE that Jane finally gives this series its ending. You get captured by the story line...a murdered child....from the beginning, but the flaws become more evident with each and every book right down to EVE...is jane JANE or ADOPTED DAUGHTER JANE ADJ for short?? She is never just referred to as my "daugher" Jane. I was always curious why? I have friends with adopted children and they never say AND MY ADOPTED SON...it is and my son Josh...but every single book constantly refers to adopted Jane...like it is a poor thing...poor adopted Jane, instead of a loving thing. I don't feel it was wrong to hope for closure for EVE in a bookd titled EVE. Possibly the release lineup should have been Jane...then Quinn then EVE so the final chapter could have been final closure for the long-suffering Eve....and possibly for all fans looking to possibly see some happiness for this character. If you are looking for something to close this for you, keep looking.

I JUST FINISHED QUINN ,AS EVE LEFT ME HANGING. SADLY, QUINN ALSO LEFT ME HANGING. THE BOOKS ARE TOO WORDY AND DRAWN OUT. THE TRIOLOGY WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT BOOK IF ONE NOVEL AND LESS OF THE BACK AND FORTH THOUGHTS OF "SHOULD I OR SHOULDN'T I??" STUFF. I WILL READ BONNIE ONLY BECAUSE I AM COMPULSIVER AND MUST KNOW WHO DID MURDER HER. HOWEVER, I WILL PROBABLY SCAN OVER MUCH OF IT AS I DID WITH QUINN.

I have waited so long to get some type of closure on Eve's unending struggle to find answers about the death and whereabouts of her daughter. This book was very fast paced. I read it in a day and wanted to scream when I got to the last page. I can't wait till July when I can read Quinn. Will he live? Will he die? I almost don't want to know.

I've read 10 of the 11 books in the Eve Duncan series. Start at the beginning and don't skip a book. Things happen quickly. This is not a foregone A+B+C=D book. There are twists, turns, cinkers, and eye opening surprises. Eve, her family, her friends, her clients, the missing and their families are people with lives - some better that others but all just people. Eve's dedication to her family and her craft open her up to many edge of the world moments and mind bogglikng turn abouts. The home by the lake provides Eve and her family a safe haven to step back form the madness - that is until it follows them home. Johansen's story telling draws you in. Step by step until your are as entrenched in Finding her daughter and the killer who stole her from Eve. You think you'll just quit this series, that is until the next one comes out and there you are buy or downloading the next one. Watch as each character grows and each step leads them and you closer to an answer. Keep reading about a woman of determination. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I am.

I love her books, but I have to agree with some of the other ratings. I felt as if the author had lost her mind. I'm so sick of the Eve Duncan's series that I'm finding it hard to finish them. Iris is so repetitious in terms that people just do not use. Either Eve is Strong or she's Weak! please make up you mind. The phrase that she constantly uses is Now!!!! Now hand me a cup of coffee, Now get in the car, Now leave me along....OMG! lady get a Thesaurus, of course this may not help her as she may not be able to navigate it. I know that some may say this is fictitional, but as a writer you want your reader to become part of the charaters, so you have to make it believable. This series should have been laid to rest a long time ago. I'm a mother and if anything happened to my child I would be devistated, but not to this degree. Eve or should I say Iris would have done us justice by letting Eve put a gun to her head and put us all out of our misery. Don't eve get me starte on Joe, let me just say if this is what a Navy Seal is like, who need's them, the man is a weakling. She's never going to love you, she's to obscessed over finding her dead daughter and you are second fiddle, grow a pair. I'm going to finish this series as I want to lay it to rest, if she creates another Eve Duncan book I will leave it on the shelf. It's really a shame, because her other books that do not include this Charater are really well written, oh don't get me wrong, she definitly loves the Now!! phrase. For those of you that gave this series more than a couple of stars, are you insane or family members? I'm not here to insult, but really????? My girl friend read all her books with this author over a 2 week span and is so burned out by this Charater that she has stop reading, which is sad as we are avid readers. I have Quinn & Bonnie to go and I'm dreading it. I can usually read a book within a day or two, these last books are taking me weeks. Iris could have written one book and ended this series, but no she's so greedy that she had to break them into 3, forcing you to purchase them all just to see if we will finally get closure. The first part of the book is a recap of the last, and it's not just a few pages but a few chapters. I loved this Charater at first, but now I hate this Charater. She's definitly not James Patterson: now he knows what diverse is, even with his Alex Cross series. If you haven't started this series, my advice is don't....

I was appalled when I read this book. Iris Johansen should be ashamed of writing about erotic sex of a sixteen year old. I have read her other books about Eve and was excited to read about Eve when she had Bonnie. I knew she was sixteen when she had Bonnie out of wedlock, but to write in detail about her erotic sex was to much for me. If Iris wants to write about something like this let her write it about an adult. Will not buy another book. Patricia D

The book was fine and I liked her daughters father. Considering the price and its a cliff hanger for this and the next one I don't know that I will buy them. Especially at their price point.

Another great Eve fix. The end is a tease, but I'm still happy with the book. I'm looking forward to the rest of the trilogy and learning those tidbits the author's been holding back on.

This book was far too long-winded to be left at a cliffhanger. Too much went on in this book that was unnecessary. Leave out the fluff and give an actual ending. Those who read this series will read the next installment anyway. You don't have to force them to continue reading. Stephanie Clanahan

I never read Iris Johansen before I got this book. If you do not want to get hooked into a series do not read this... I picked up the first and am working my way thru the Eve Duncan series. Easy read, well written! An A+++
