The Search (Eve Duncan Series #3) by Iris Johansen

He strikes without warning....he kills without mercy....he's only just begun....

Iris Johansen, the New York Times bestselling author of The Killing Game and The Face of Deception, delivers a gripping new novel of breathtaking suspense and explosive adventure. It is the story of a courageous woman who is coerced into tracking down a ruthless killer--but as she hunts out her prey with stunning accuracy, she becomes the object of his wrath....

As part of an elite K-9 search and rescue team, Sarah Patrick and her golden retriever, Monty, have a gift for finding what no one else can--whether it's a survivor buried alive by an earthquake or the skeleton of a murdered child. But their latest assignment is not like the others. This time Sarah is being forced to take part in a deadly a man who knows enough about her past to ensure her cooperation. A man who won't take no for an answer.  John Logan is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants now is Sarah's help. His top-secret venture has been sabotaged, its facilities destroyed, and its handpicked staff massacred. The sole survivor is being held for ransom. Logan knows that the only way to save the man--and the secrets he holds--is to find him as soon as possible.

Smart, tough, and uncompromising, Sarah is furious when she is strong-armed into joining Logan on his search. And once she takes the perilous assignment, she realizes that Logan's promises that she and Monty will be safe may not be enough to protect them.  Because a killer is devising a sadistic vengeance...and he may soon find use for Sarah.  Racing against time to stop the bloodshed before more victims are claimed, both Sarah and Logan will look straight into the heart of true evil. And when the killer's search for revenge finally ends, no one will ever be the same again....

I give this book four out of five stars. The characters re-appear from the first and second books. John Logan comes in from the first, and Sarah comes in from the second. The plot takes place in a jungle, wich is really cool. The writing style of Iris Johansen is very good in this book, as well as her others. The book is original. The book cover kinda describes the book. The book is a little dramatic, and somewhat thrilling.

Monty is a search and rescue dog who, along with his human companion Sarah Patrick, is dedicated to saving people from disasters. They seek survivors, but mark the locale of the dead. Manipulative billionaire John Logan knows the dramatic success of this team, having used them once before. He needs them again, but knows Sarah would never voluntarily help him. He manipulates the situation so that Sarah has no choice but to assist John.

A scientific research team working for John in the Colombian jungle was attacked, leaving everyone dead except an irreplaceable scientist who was kidnapped. John needs Sarah and Monty to locate the man so that his team can rescue the victim. The mission turns into a partial success as they rescue the scientist, but fail to kill the culprit. John knows that the perpetrator is his most deadly enemy, who will continue to attack him unless John kills him. John also knows that Sarah and Monty have been marked by his foe. He places them under his protection over Sarah¿s objection. The danger brings them closer together but they must live long enough to enjoy the feelings that are developing between them.

Fans of Iris Johansen will be excited by the lead appearance of the magnetic secondary character from THE FACE OF DECEPTION and THE KILLING GAME. The charming, manipulative anti-hero meets his match in the strong-willed, exasperating, but intrepid heroine. The complex charcaters enhance a rich, fast-paced story line that turns into a thrill a page. Readers do not have to search any further than this novel to find Ms. Johansen¿s next trip to the bestseller lists.

This is by far my favorite novel! I borrowed it from my mother who swore it was the best book she'd ever read and I have to agree with her. I bought a hard copy edition for my personal library AFTER having read it. The story is fantastic! Johansen goes from romance and comedy to death and mystery in the blink of an eye, keeping you on the edge of the seat and tuning the pages. It was a one day read for me as I couldn't put it down and once I'd finished I found myself wishing that there was another adventure for the main characters to go on. As a Dog Lover I adored Maggie and Monty! And there was just enough humor and romance to keep the darker parts light and enough murder and suspense to keep the fluff from becoming too much. You don't have to read the others in the Eve Duncan series to read this one. Until I found it online I didn't even know it wasn't a stand alone novel. This book is NUMBER 1 in my Must Read!

This was my first Iris Johanson book, and I'm hooked. Tension and suspense throughout, full of emotion and heart. I love the dog, and I love the hero. It's time to go shopping for all of her backlist!

Sorry to bash Johansen, but I felt like I was reading books written for a fourth grader! I would rather read something more mind stimulating. The Search was so drawn out and boring! I was disappointed!

I'm really not into reading much and I never really have been, but I thought I would try it to help me out in college. I picked this book simply because the salesman at Hastings suggested it to me. And I can honestly say that this was the first time in my life I have totally enjoyed reading and have actually finished a book like this. It includes suspense, romance, and evil throughout the plot; and it makes you want to read more just to see what happens. I really enjoyed it and plan on reading more of this authors' stories.

Johansen has captured all of the raw nerved excitement of life and death search and rescue work. Only a gifted writer can give a canine character of this depth. The plot is riveting, even if the author occasionally regresses to her romantic roots. A must-read for suspense fans, romance readers, and meaty character lovers alike.

I have read several of Mrs Johansen's novels and have really enjoyed them but this one was very disappointing.  All the ingredients were there for a really great novel but I was left wanting.  Both the characters and the plot needed "fleshing" out .  I felt as if the novel had been written in a hurry.  I will be reading more of her novels but unlike most of the other reviewers, I would not recommend this to anyone.

Fast paced! I'm glad she brought Logan back from the first book. He's an interesting character and is one of my favorites. I hope he shows up again in later novels. It was a noce side step away from Eve to build the characters that surroumd her.
