Eve

by Iris Johansen

St. Martin's Press | April 19, 2011 | Hardcover

Eve is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
The #1 bestselling author delivers the first in a trilogy that will begin to answer questions that have haunted her legion of fans for over a decade, in her newest novel of breathtaking suspense

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…maybe forever. Eve is brilliant, and driven, and tormented--because her own daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her years ago. And Eve has never discovered what happened to her. But now a name from the past resurfaces, thanks to CIA agent Catherine Ling who knows all too well what it’s like to lose a child.

After teaming up with Agent Ling to find her missing son, Eve and Catherine share a bond forged by their mutual pain. Now, Catherine challenges Eve with a name: John Gallo. A man from Eve’s past. A man, seemingly raised from the dead, whose whereabouts are unknown. Could Gallo be the missing piece to the puzzle that has haunted Eve for years? Why was he in Atlanta just before Bonnie’s disappearance? With a brilliant narrative that goes back to Eve Duncan’s early life, exploring her history and motivations like no other novel before, Eve reveals long-guarded secrets and is guaranteed to leave Johansen fans panting for more—soon to come in Quinn (October 2011).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Page Turner! Overall, this is a good read. The first half was really good and got me attached to the characters. The romance between the two characters felt real and I had to keep reading to find out what would happen between them. I found the story line involving Eve's search for Bonnie a little weak. I wasn't interested in it, and was solely focused on what was going to happen between John and Eve. The second part I couldn't put down, but I felt the beginning was stronger. I was really hoping for a better ending, but am confident it is coming in the next installment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad Another Eve Duncan novel. ** Spoiler Alert ** If this is your first novel in the series, the characters are always strong and in this instance, the pace of the story is good. There wasn't a dull spot at all. However, I don't know how much longer IJ can drag out Bonnie's story because I'm getting tired. It sure would be nice to finally wrap it up. For me, the disappointing thing about this book is making Gallo the killer. After everything he's been thru, he's going to be the killer? I thought that was pretty unjust. However, I suppose there is a possibility that IJ could turn the tables around in the next couple of novels and everything will work out. Looking forward to reading "Quinn" and "Bonnie" in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Another good story by Iris Johansen. Couldn't put the book down. If you have enjoyed reading the Eve Duncan stories you will love this book. Learning the beginning Eve and Bonnie along with other people in her life was wonderful to read. Hated to see the book end. Definitely makes you anxious to read the next book called Quinn. Great job Iris, continue to be a fan of yours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Iris Johansen is such a good writer I loved this book, I could not get enough and wanted to read Quinn but it is not out yet I love all of Iris's books, this one was edge of your seat Iris Johansen, I only hope the ending is not as it seems. A friend of mine was reading it on her ereader at the same time and we both said we didn't want to read it fast because then it would be over. good good book

Read from the Book

Malua, Samoa Present Day TWO MINUTES.   The explosive was in place beneath the back veranda of the house. The charge set. Agent Art Benkman slid behind the garden wall that surrounded the pool and house and waited. No mistakes this time. His superior wouldn''t tolerate another near miss. It had been made clear that Black must be destroyed. He was a monster who knew too much. No, he''d seen Paul Black go into the house an hour ago. It was the best time for the kill. Only one person in the house beside that son of a bitch. A housekeeper who occupied the end bedroom of the rambling bungalow. He''d seen her light go out two hours ago. She''d be asleep by now. Good night. And good-bye. No one would survive this blast. He''d had to be sure. One minute. The flames from the blast would probably reach the top of those palm trees hovering over the roof. "I''ve got you, Black," he murmured. "Burn in--" Pain. He was flipped over and was looking up at the man who had sent the needle- sharp stiletto deep into his back. Black. But it couldn''t be Paul Black. He was in the house. No, he was here. That dark, devil''s face . . . "Who sent you?" Black asked. "Who told you I was here?" He was searching in Benkman''s pockets, pulling out his wallet, and the e-mail that he''d received two days ago. He glanced at it and smiled. "Very explicit. And you obeyed blindly like a good agent? Never mind. You don''t have to answer. I don''t need you now." "Kill you . . ." Benkman whispered. "I have to-
