A CIA agent's two-year-old child was stolen in the night as a brutal act of vengeance. Now, eight years later, this torment is something Catherine Ling awakens to every day. Her friends, family, and colleagues tell her to let go, move on, accept that her son is never coming back. But she can't. Catherine needs to find someone as driven and obsessed as she is to help her-- and that person is Eve Duncan. She knows that Eve shares her nightmare, since closure is also somethingthat eludes Eve after the disappearance of her daughter Bonnie. Now, Eve must take her talents as a forensic sculptor to another level, using age progression as a way to unite Catherine with her child. As Eve gets drawn deeper into Catherine's horror, she must face looming demons of her own.Bonnie's killer is still out there. And a new killer is taunting Eve and Catherine at every turn. Is Catherine's son alive, or not? These two women endure the worst fear any mother can imagine in Iris Johansen's latest thrill ride, a gut-wrenching journey into the darkest places of the soul.

The Eve Duncan series when she was a forensic sculptor and solved mysteries / crimes were great. This new fantasy / supernatural direction is ridiculous and a mess. If I wanted to read science fiction I would do so. Terrible!! Horrible! Never again. Kristi & Abby Tabby

Interesting story, well written. However, it seems that Eve Duncan is not the primary character in this story. Catherine Ling is the main character. Took away from the books we are use to reading about Eve Duncan.

I like the Eve series and yet sometimes it can be so aggravating spending so much time on the same old same old. Yes she is obsessed by her daughter's death, yes Joe wants to protect her, yes she will do whatever she darn well choices. Much time is always spent going over the same thing. Supporting characters tend to always act the same way book after book. Sometimes you can tell a good author by how different each character and each plot are book after book. She isn't a bad author. Just predictable most of the time.

Not as intense. Very predicatble as arwdkj said. I actually bored with the first day reading it already. I say 2 stars only. Too regular of a book.

Preposterous plot and the characters are cardboard.

Johansen's books are always good and a fast read. However they are predictable. The next one might be the last of this series?

Johansen strays farther and farther from the realm of believability with each new Eve Duncan book. It seems that the author wants to take the characters in 17 different directions all at once, and the attempts to make Eve and Joe Quinn the nexus of National Security, Counterterrorism, Forensic Science, Paranormal Connections, and European vigilantes are stretching believability to the breaking point.

The name you didn't even see fit to put on the birth certificate, Eve, Bonnie's father, John Gallo.
