Although this book is advertised an Eve Duncan book this book is mainly about Jane her foster daughter. The book starts off with a bang but then among the history of a 2000 year old death it loses somthing along the way. A crazed killer is killing all women who resemble this 2000 year old dead woman and Jane happens to look like her. At one point I thought it would have some sort of big explosive climax but kind of left the reader hanging. Yes, the bad guy bit it, yes the good guys won but there was almost no point in Eve's part of the book. She reconstructed a skull only to state "Dear God in Heaven." and then the book never explains. It's the cliffhanger from hell and makes this one book that cannot stand alone, which is my idea of an excellent thriller.

If you are a Patrical Cornwell fan you will fall in love with this author. Eve Duncon's job is put faces that has been destroyed by time or a murder.By supplying a face it is easier to indentify the victim and than hope the trail will lead to the murder.

Lovely mystery--easy to read and no graphic sex or violence. Just a nice, comfortable read instead of summer re-runs. Not complicated or confusing. Just a nice read--

Will she loose Jane, as she did Bonnie or will there be a happy ending? You will have to read this page-turner to find out.

Only Iris Johansen can get away with writing about re-incarnation in a realistisc setting and have me buy into it. In this novel, the adopted child of Eve Duncan is somehow made the trget of a serial killer, Aldo. Aldo is ridding the world of the face of a woman he scorns, and has been dead 2,000 years. The Story is told through quick dream sequences and quick chapters.

In her latest thriller about Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and the love of his life, forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, Joe gives Eve a skull to reconstruct. Eerily enough, the face resembles 17-year-old Jane MacGuire, who has been offered sanctuary by Eve and Joe after surviving a rough-and-tumble life on the streets. Now it seems that a killer is trying to erase all evidence of her face because it is identical to that of a statue of a woman who died during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Several look-alikes have already been killed in Europe, and Scotland Yard sends in hunky Mark Trevor to help. Eve mistrusts him, but Jane, who has had recurring nightmares related to the killings, believes that he's there to help her. Eve and Joe want to protect Jane, but the intrepid teenager knows that unless she confronts the killer, she will live the rest of her life in fear. Johansen has become adept at mixing supernatural elements with intriguing suspense, and her new tale will please both fans and new converts with its unpredictable journey from Atlanta to the archaeological digs of Herculaneum in Italy.

The New York Times bestselling author of Firestorm, Iris Johansen, returns with a psychological thriller so terrifying, so relentlessly paced, it wont leave you time to catch your breath before the next shock comes. A forensic sculptor is locked in a deadly duel with a serial killer determined to destroy herone life at a time.

Eve Duncans job is to put a face on the faceless victims of violent crimes. Her work not only comforts their survivorsbut helps catch their killers. But there is another, more personal reason that Eve Duncan is driven to do the kind of work she doesa dark nightmare from a past she can never bury. And as she works on the skull of a newly discovered victim, that past is about to return all over again.

The victim is a Jane Doe found murdered, her face erased beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasnt just trying to hide her identity. The plan was far more horrifying. For as the face forms under Eves skilled hands, she is about to get the shock of her life. The victim is someone she knows all too well. Someone who isnt dead. Yet.

Instantly Eves peaceful life is shattered. The sanctuary of the lakeside cottage she shares with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and their adopted daughter Jane has been invaded by a killer whos sent the grimmest of threats: the face of his next victim. To stop him, Eve must put her own life in the balance and question everything and everyone she trusts. Not even Quinn can go where Eve must go this time.

As the trail of faceless bodies leads to a chilling revelation, Eve finds herself trying to catch a master murderer whose grisly work is a testament to a mind warped by perversion and revenge. Now she must pit her skills against his in a showdown where the stakes are life itselfand where the unbearable cost of failure will make Eves own murder seem like a mercy killing.

I enjoy Iris Johanson's books, but the Golden retriever x wolfdog makes me nuts, enough so that I haven't re-read this book. (Yet somehow, the telepathic Golden in the first on eof this set didn't bother me nearly as much- perhaps it's the romnaticisation of the wolf and wolfdogs....) Suspenseful and fun read though, other than that.

Forensic Sculptor Eve Duncan is shocked to see the face she has reconstructed on a murder victim is the face of her 17-year-old adopted daughter. A serial killer has moved through Europe and the USA, killing women who resemble a statue of a woman killed during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. Scotland Yard's Mark Trevor has been sent to help find him. Eve doesn't trust him, but Jane believes he can help find the killer before the killer targets her.

I thought the first part of the book was interesting, especially the addition of Mark Trevor. But somewhere in the middle of the story, it lost steam for me. This was more a story of Eve's daughter, Jane, dealing with a serial killer who has specifically targeted her. My rating: 3.5 Stars.
