A merciless killer on the innocent child in his sights...a woman driven to the edge to stop him...

The killer knows Eve Duncan all too well. He knows the pain she feels for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body has never been found. He knows that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors she'll insist on identifying the nine skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. He knows she won't be able to resist the temptation of believing that one of those skeletons might be her daughter's. But that is only the beginning of the killer's sadistic game. He wants Eve one on one, and he'll use his ace in the hole to make sure she complies. And he won't stop playing until he claims the prize he wants most: Eve's life.

(The second book in the Eve Duncan series)

I agree with Rahmmie. I really disliked Eve's relentless contrariness. Her two male friends CONSTANT bickering over her was a big turn-off as well. Her work as a forensic sculptor had little effect in the story. This book was not enjoyable at all, and I am surprised I took the time to finish it. In movies you know what happens whenever a character tells someone "stay in the car" while he or she goes to investigate? You can count on Eve ignoring the advise of anyone.

I really tried to get into Johansen's books but unfortunately this was my second and last. There was absolutely no character development, the dialogue could have been exchanged between the books and it would have worked the same. I'm sure she's a good author, she just wasn't the one for me

She wasn't very interesting, but that kill made me finally realize that there was something very wrong and eventually led me to you.
