Bestseller Johansen’s riveting conclusion to her special Eve Duncan trilogy that began with Eve and Quinn explores the darkest side of humanity. Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan and her long-term partner, Det. Joe Quinn, continue to search for Eve’s daughter, Bonnie, who disappeared years before on a school outing in Atlanta when she was seven years old. Assisting Eve and Joe in their hunt, which takes them from the Louisiana bayous to rural Georgia, are Bonnie’s mentally unstable father, John Gallo, an ex-Army man who was previously a prime suspect in Bonnie’s murder, and CIA agent Catherine Ling, who struggles with her attraction to Gallo. While Bonnie’s spirit appears in visions to Eve, providing guidance and solace, an unlikely new suspect takes the pursuers in a new direction, complete with a multitude of twists and turns. A stunning finale will move series fans and newcomers alike. (Oct.)
