Very fast read. Pretty compelling, though I found some of the relationships a little hard to believe. (May help if you've read some of her other books....I haven't.) I mean, really....where do I find a couple men like Logan and Quinn to fawn all over me??? :) Guess that's why it's called FICTION.

I really enjoy Iris Johansen's books. I like the way she entertwines familiar characters throughout all of her books. This is definitely one of her best. I like Eve Duncan. She's a very strong and intelligent female character.

This is a very good, on the edge of your seat, book. The ending just blew me away. It's one of the best mysteries I've ever read. It's about a forensic sculptor who looks for her murdered daughter, who's body has never been found, in every child that is found murdered. When a child's skeleton is found, she's hoping it is her missing daughter.

Just enough off of the beaten path to stir up an interest and to hold the readers attention to the details. the story line allowed a high level of expectation that is well fulfilled. The connecting and flow of the characters is smooth and held my interest well. You get to feel the panics and disappointments as well getting to be involved in the horror of the real loss senselessly inflicted into so many of these lives. I really enjoyed the twists and turns, as well as the warm passions and the few hot ones as well. This is a worthwhile read with a good balance but off-beat just enough to keep the interest and tuned up. It is worth the credit and your time.

Book about Eve Duncan, forensic Sculptor. She lost her daughter to a killer years ago, and so feels compelled to work on the skulls of young girls found in Georgia. I liked this book, though not as well as the first one, but it was still pretty good. There are elements of romance, suspense and the supernatural.

I liked this second book better than the first because Eve Duncan is starting to grow on me. In the first book, I loved the plot but felt like the heroine was such a stubborn pain in the butt. In this book, she grows close to Joe and seems to become better (healthier?) as a person. And the plot was great.

Eve Duncan returns as the popular heroine of Iris Johansen's latest suspense thriller, The Killing Game. After the murder of her daughter Bonnie and years of work as a forensic sculptor, Eve had hoped to find some solace in semi-retirement. But when her friend Joe Quinn informs her of the unearthing of multiple bodies, including those of children, Eve cannot resist getting caught up. Those bones may be Bonnie's, and somewhere out there is a dangerous serial murderer. With Joe's loyal help, Eve grimly sets out to find a killer.
Determined to remain objective, Eve begins to reconstruct the face of one of the victims. But the killer wants her to become involved, and manipulates Eve's life like a puppeteer. Terrified of the killer but spurred on by her memories of Bonnie, Eve takes a gamble with her life. She will do whatever the murderer demands: she will be the bait, betting her life for the chance to save others.

As a great suspense novel should, The Killing Game keeps the action and the plot twists coming. Eve's job as a forensic sculptor is the perfect profession for a suspense heroine: she has official access to technical information and the emotional flexibility to react to the drama. Eve's grieving over the loss of Bonnie--and over her romantic complications--helps keep the story complex and appealing. Turn on all of the lights and keep the phone nearby--you won't want to be alone in the dark while reading this one. --Nancy R.E. O'Brien

This book is actually the 2nd in a 3 book series, but I didn't know that when I read it...

I've recently finished the first one called "The Face of Deception" and I've got the 3rd book waiting for me as well "Body of Lies".

These books are about Eve Duncan, a woman whos daughter was kidnapped and she became involved in finding missing children by reconstructing skulls to match up with photos. In this book Eve tries to stay one step ahead of a killer who seems to have infomation about her daughter.

I like Iris Johansen's writing. Since the characters show up from previous books, it is probably best to start with the beginning book in the series. This is not the first in the series. I really feel for the lead character in her book.

A merciless killer on the hunt...

An innocent child in his sights...

A woman driven to the edge to stop him...

Iris Johansen, New York Times bestselling author of The Face of Deception and The Ugly Duckling, returns with the most daring, terrifying, and nerve-shattering novel of her career as she takes us inside the twisted mind of a psychopath...and the heart of a woman who refuses to let him win.

The killer knew Eve Duncan all too well. He knew the pain she felt for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body was never found. He knew that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors she would insist on identifying nine skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. And he knew that she wouldn't be able to resist the temptation of believing that one of those skeletons--the one belonging to a young girl--might be Bonnie's.

But that is only the beginning of the killer's sadistic game. Soon the calls begin to come. Sly, insinuating, chilling. Whoever is on the other end of the line is watching. He sees every move Eve makes. He savors her pain. He could strike at any time. But that's not what he wants--not yet.

In a heartbeat, Eve's world is turned upside down. Not even the two tough, powerful, and relentless men who would do anything to keep Eve safe can help her. Charismatic business magnate John Logan and hard-as-nails Atlanta detective Joe Quinn can't go where Eve must go. Because the killer wants her alone, and he'll use his ace in the hole to make sure Eve complies.

Now Eve Duncan must match wits with the most dangerous of psychopaths. A man for whom life and death is no more than a game. A killing game. And he won't stop playing until he's gotten the prize he wants most: Eve's life.
