This was another really good read in the Eve Duncan series, although I still find myself getting tired of Eve on occasion. I was happy to see a reappearance of Montalvo, was a little perked up by the fact that Joe Quinn grew a new backbone in this story, and was really excited by the part that Megan Blair played in the story (see PANDORA'S DAUGHTER).

I know that Eve needs to find the body of her daughter, Bonnie, for closure. I know that she's obsessed with this task. But, sometimes, you just want to smack her for letting it ruin so many other aspects of her life.

Many times throughout QUICKSAND I had to wonder what either Joe or Montalvo see in this woman -- I think she'd drive me batty. No matter what happens in the long run, though, I hope to see more of a paranormal aspect to the storyline: and it seems that there will be, what with the way the story ends.

If you're a follower of the Eve Duncan series, you'll want to read this one. It's good overall, and you can always hope that Montalvo comes to his senses and looks for a new woman to obsess over soon.

Eve Duncan is still on the search for the remains of her missing daughter but this time she has lots of help. This is a very enjoyable read and it kept me wanting to read just one more paragraph...and still not able to put it down.

This is like all of Iris Johansen's books - grabs you right from the first page and keeps going full-throttle to the last page.

Not one of Iris Johansen's better Eve Duncan stories. Kinda stretching the Bonnie story too long. Still worth reading as I'm sure there are important parts in this story that will come up again if she writes another Eve book.

If this were the first "Eve Duncan" plot I had read, I would have considered it very good. However, after reading several of them, I am a little tired of the storyline and ready for Johansen to move on to other stories.

I really liked this book. To me it never reached a point where I thought I knew where it was going. Kept me guessing. Definitely worth the credit to get.

This book is about Eve Duncan. She lost her only child to a killer years ago. She is a
forensic sculptor, she spends her life trying to bring all missing children home to their family. She is obsessed with finding her daughters' remains some day.

A ruthless mass murder has learned how to horrify her and taunts' Eve about what happened to her little girl.

This book is brilliantly written.

Iris Johansen tells a great story. Once again Eve Duncan is embroiled in a deperate search to bring home Bonnie. The book is hard to put down. I don't really like the supernatural aspect. But it is still a great story. I only wish we were able to see into the mind of the villain a little more, if only to see how he became so evil.

Obsessed with finding her daughter, Bonnie, forensic sculptor Eve Duncan enlists the aid of Dr. Megan Blair to help bring Bonnie's killer to justice, embarking on a perilous quest, accompanied by Joe Quinn, that will either bring her ultimate closure and revenge or destroy everything--and everyone--she cares about.

I really enjoyed this book and was delighted to see Montalvo back in the picture but I hope they soon wrap up the Bonnie loose end. I think the Eve-Joe-Montalvo triangle would be much more effective if Bonnie wasn't hanging over their heads.

this was another quick read and all housework was blown off. I am new to this author but I really like Eve Duncan and Megan Blair who we met in Pandora's Daughter. I did not see the ending coming so it was a nice surprise. I intend to read the other Duncan books so PM me if you have them. Bonnie is quite a presence for a little girl who is deceased.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water...not that many folks think it is safe to go into alligator infested swamps and small islands in a body of water is a safe place to be! Once again Johansen weaves in characters from earlier books--some like Kistel obviously bad and/or evil--some obviously good like Joe and Megan--and then you have that other category with Montalvo--is he good, is he bad--what measuring stick should you use? Lastly there comes the union we all new would happen but just didn't know when--what union--why of course Bonnie and X?X?X?X?X--you just have to read Quicksand to find out! bogie & tene'
