From Iris Johansen, the New York Times bestselling author
of The Search and Final Target,
comes a taut, fast-paced, and terrifying psychological thriller
that pushes the level of suspense to the absolute limit-and beyond.
This time forensic sculptor Eve Duncan finds herself matched
against a killer who will challenge her skill, test her courage,
and threaten her family.
As a forensic sculptor, Eve Duncan deals in death every day of her
life. It's her job. And while it might seem macabre to some, Eve
knows from personal experience that her work, giving a face and a
name to the victims of violent death, helps bring closure to their
families. Now that job is about to put not only her own life on the
line...but the lives of everyone close to her.
It begins with a call from a high-ranking government official. He
wants Eve to drop everything and come to Baton Rouge to identify
the remains of an unknown murder victim. At first, Eve wants
nothing to do with the project. She has finally found peace from
her own tragic past, living a quiet life in a small lakeside
cottage with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and her adopted daughter,
Jane. But a stunning series of seemingly unrelated events is about
to upset all that.
Suddenly, Eve's hard-won new world is turned upside down, and she
flees to Baton Rouge to take on the project of identifying the
skeleton. Forced to work in secrecy, given only the sketchiest of
information, Eve can't help but wonder if the high-level security
that surrounds her is meant to protect her-or imprison her.
She hasn't even begun work on the reconstruction when the first
death occurs. Someone totally ruthless, someone who can strike
anywhere at any time, and with seeming immunity, is determined to
put a halt to her work. Soon the questions-and the threats to her
own life-begin to mount as Eve realizes she has stumbled into the
heart of a chilling conspiracy.
There is only one person who can give her the answers she needs.
And that is the dead man himself. To survive, Eve must put her life
on the line to uncover the deadly secret of his identity and learn
the devastating truth buried beneath a body of lies.
