When billionaire John Logan requests her help in identifying an adult skull, Eve--already swamped with work--tells Lo... more »gan that she isn't interested. But when he volunteers to donate a large sum of money to a charity for missing children in exchange for her time, Eve reluctantly agrees. Logan neglects to tell her that there are powerful, desperate people who are determined to keep the skull's true identity a secret at any cost. Eve's gut instincts tell her that Logan is holding back vital information: Does the billionaire really believe that he's uncovered new insight into the Kennedy assassination? Or does the skull tie him to a mysterious murder? Eve's wildest guesses don't even come close to the stunning truth that she discovers when she at last studies the restored face.

Well plotted, meticulously researched and spine-tingling, The Face of Deception is a fast-paced game of hide-and-seek, as Eve and Logan race to stay one step ahead of relentless pursuers while accomplishing the delicate, high-tech restoration for which Eve is famous.

This is my first book by this author.
I didn't find it riveting, but it moved along very well.
Eve is the main character and and even by the end of the book I didn't like her any more than at the beginning.
Why four stars? because I would be happy to read another book to see if she improves!
I loved the plot in the book. It kept my interest right through, wondering how it would turn out. But I did not like Eve Duncan, the heroine. She is supposed to be this really gutsy tough person who has survived this terrible tragedy, but she just seemed like a pain the butt through the whole book. I hope I like her better in the next book.
