    This was a miserable read I have a few family members who really love Johansen so I decided to give her a try The main characters in the book are so obnoxious that I wanted to tear my hair out It felt like the plot went round and round in the same hackneyed circle I think the only reason I was able to finish this novel is I am slightly OCD and was hoping to see one of them die.

    I have loved iris johansen since I was a teenager My only problem that plagued me as I continued to read her Eve Duncan series was how does so much drama and life challenging adventures follow one person around And in the last several years, I find the phrase shut him out as in Eve hates to shut joe out, Eve must shut Joe out, Joe expects Eve to shut her out, Joe gets mad Eve shuts her out, etc and it just aggravates me because I like the characters, like the series, and hate that everyone i I have loved iris johansen since I was a teenager My only problem that plagued me as I continued to read her Eve Duncan series was how does so much drama and life challenging adventures follow one person around And in the last several years, I find the phrase shut him out as in Eve hates to shut joe out, Eve must shut Joe out, Joe expects Eve to shut her out, Joe gets mad Eve shuts her out, etc and it just aggravates me because I like the characters, like the series, and hate that everyone is always shut out Characters grow and relationships evolve and I feel after longer than a decade, Joe and Eve s relationship should have too, especially by the end of Bonnie

    I found this book to be overall a decent read Listening to it rather than physically reading it myself made for some enjoyable housework and drive time The Good Stuff It was nice to get an Eve Duncan book that actually featured Eve Duncan I do like her adopted daughter, Jane, but this series is not the Jane series and I was getting tired of having Jane be front and center The suspense was really good as was the setting For the most part the plot was solidtoo bad the characters were not I found this book to be overall a decent read Listening to it rather than physically reading it myself made for some enjoyable housework and drive time The Good Stuff It was nice to get an Eve Duncan book that actually featured Eve Duncan I do like her adopted daughter, Jane, but this series is not the Jane series and I was getting tired of having Jane be front and center The suspense was really good as was the setting For the most part the plot was solidtoo bad the characters were not.The Bad Stuff At this juncture I m over and done with Eve s obsession with her long dead Bonnie I know one doesn t just get over the loss of a child but by this point Eve is making terrible judgement calls and putting herself in danger constantly in order to find that closure This is not the Eve Duncan that I remember Also Joe, an ex FBI agent, makes some TSTL decisions and almost diestwice WTH The combo of Eve and Joe was disastrous also After this many years together why is Eve constantly shutting Joe out Even the most independent and strong willed person, after being with someone for a decade or , learns to lean on someone to make important life altering decisions Not Eve She pretty much lies and manipulates her way then sneaks off into the night like a thief I almost hate her Oh and the introduction of a potential love interest in the form of a Colombian drug lord for EveGive me a Break So frustrating.On the Audio While I think Jennifer Van Dyck did an ok job narrating the book, her accents, in my opinion, were off The Colombians almost sounded European In addition a reoccurring character named Galen had an Irish brogue yet at one point I could have sworn the book said that he spoke in a British accent.In a Nutshell I ll probably continue with the series but only because I really want to read the whole Bonnie closure but honestly, I feel this series has just about run it s course

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This is just the worst Eve Duncan novel Eve came out looking strong but slightly out of character especially the way that her character was starting to become written but Joe seemed like evenof an overprotective over bearing fool I couldn t suspend my disbelief of the annoying characters to even bother caring whether Eve and Montalvo got together until about half way and then I figured it would serve Joe right Don t get me wrong, I like Joe but he makes a good point when he mentions in This is just the worst Eve Duncan novel Eve came out looking strong but slightly out of character especially the way that her character was starting to become written but Joe seemed like evenof an overprotective over bearing fool I couldn t suspend my disbelief of the annoying characters to even bother caring whether Eve and Montalvo got together until about half way and then I figured it would serve Joe right Don t get me wrong, I like Joe but he makes a good point when he mentions in the beginning of the novel that his relationship with Eve is getting a bit strained They need to grow up and I hate to say it, I m a little tired of the Bonnie motivator She should never forget her child but even Bonnie has asked to be let go It s time to start the healing process or at least find the killer I can t bother to read the next one, so I guess I ll never know either Unfortunately, this book just didn t do it for me I liked Jane in the last two novels though Very believable and the stories were entertaining I d be interested inabout her and Trevor That is the best thing that I can take from the Eve Duncan series.Alas, it was a good run while it lasted but I believe this is my last Eve Duncan novel

    TheI ve thought about ittheI ve realized I really didn t like this book While it was classic Iris Johansen with a high paced suspensful style the story left me flat I ve read a couple of the other Eve Duncan booksbut it had been a while so I didn t remember back story much So, coming into this book I was missing a lot While those things could be the reasons a person wouldn t like a bookthey weren t the reasons I didn t like this one Eve contantly shuts out Joethe man TheI ve thought about ittheI ve realized I really didn t like this book While it was classic Iris Johansen with a high paced suspensful style the story left me flat I ve read a couple of the other Eve Duncan booksbut it had been a while so I didn t remember back story much So, coming into this book I was missing a lot While those things could be the reasons a person wouldn t like a bookthey weren t the reasons I didn t like this one Eve contantly shuts out Joethe man she says she lovesthan anything and wants in her life forever She says she loves him but leaves him out of the most basic aspects of her life I found this very off putting Then she starts to develop feeling for a Columbian Drug Lordwho basically blackmailed her into help him WHAT THE Even though she doesn t act on her feelings and goes back to the states with Joeshe still leaves her heart closed to Joe It didn t sit well with me I don t know that I will read the next installment of the Eve Duncan series because she left it open that she will leave Joe and go to the Drug Lord Oh for heavens sake

    Eve is a forensic scupltor who is offered job to reconstruct a face for a criminal in exchange for information about her daughter who was murdered I didn t really care for the book, I kept waiting for it to get better I didn t like Eve that much, the premise of the story and to me it lacked the romance that her books usually have along with suspense Not one of her best.
