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).

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

Seriously, hasn't she flogged this horse to death?

Not very impressed but did finish it. The story line is to long and boring.
Need to step up her adventures!! Will not read #2 Quinn & #3 Bonnie will be a hit and miss read just to find out what really happened to Bonnie. Oct 2017

Very disappointed. The violence & sexual antics takes away from the story line and Eve's goal to find her daughter Bonnie. Bonnie is the true heroine.

Not as good as some of the older Iris Johansen books.

Seriously? This needed to be the first book of a Trilogy? Good thing we have libraries. I wasted a weekend but saved myself $30.

Fast read, which I like. Yet somehow the charactors aren't as deep as they used to be.
