CHAPTER1 Rio Grande ForestColoradoIT WAS DOANE’S MOUNTAIN.He was the hunter, she was the prey.Was he still behind her?Eve tore through the underbrush at the side of the trail, lost her balance, fell, then struggled to her feet again.She mustn’t give in to this weakness. She seemed to have been running through this wilderness forever. No, it couldn’t have been as long as it appeared to her. It had been late afternoon when she had broken free of Doane and the house where he had been keeping her, and darkness was only now falling.But why was Jim Doane still behind her, dammit? He was no young man, and she should have been able to lose him long before this. As a painful stitch stabbed her side, she paused and drew a deep breath, listening.A crashing in the brush behind her!She started running again.“I hear you, bitch.” Doane’s breathing was harsh, labored. “Come back to me. If you do, I may not kill you … yet. But you’re making me angry and I may lose control. I don’t want to do that. It would spoil everything for Kevin.”Kevin, Doane’s son, whose reconstructed skull Eve had hurled off this mountain, less than an hour ago, to distract Doane. Doane’s obsession with his dead son was deepening with every passing moment. Did Doane actually think she’d trust him? Kevin had been a serial killer, a monster without a hint of conscience, and his father, Doane, had been his enabler, the one who had made it possible for him to kill all those helpless children who had crossed Kevin’s path.

EVE DUNCAN IS BACK.
THE HUNT IS ON.
The latest in Iris Johansen's pulse-pounding series that Kirkus Reviews calls "filled with intriguing twists and characters and an overarching mystery that will keep fans coming back."
She was taken for a reason. Chosen for her skills as a forensic sculptor. Abducted by the deranged father of a serial killer and forced to reconstruct his dead son's skull from bone fragments. Now Eve Duncan has escaped her captor-and she's running for her life. Alone. Unarmed. In the mountains of Colorado, Eve must use all of her strength, courage, and wits to survive this madman's obsession. But Jim Doane is not the only player in the game. While Joe Quinn, Jane MacGuire, and Kendra Michaels search for Eve in the abandoned mining town that could be her ultimate refuge-or her grave-a stranger with ties to her long-ago past is closing in, circling like a wolf, and HUNTING EVE.
