Hunting Eve by Iris Johansen
(St. Martin’s Press, 2013, 385 pages)
In this trilogy thriller, forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is still the prey of a vicious killer. She was taken for a reason. Chosen for her skills as a forensic sculptor. Abducted by the deranged father of a serial killer and forced to reconstruct his dead son’s skull from bone fragments. Now Eve Duncan has escaped her captor—and she’s running for her life. Alone. Unarmed. In the mountains of Colorado, Eve must use all of her strength, courage, and wits to survive this madman’s obsession. But Jim Doane is not the only player in the game. While Joe Quinn, Jane MacGuire, and Kendra Michaels search for Eve in the abandoned mining town that could be her ultimate refuge—or her grave—a stranger with ties to her long-ago past is closing in, circling like a wolf, and Hunting Eve.
I’m a big Iris Johansen fan and I couldn’t wait to get started on this trilogy. This is the second book in the series and I was not disappointed. This one was just as good as the first book in the series called Taking Eve. Full of suspense it made for on-the-edge-of-your-seat reading. I could not put it down. I follow all of Johansen’s Eve Duncan books and have enjoyed them all. This was good reading – it moved along quickly with lots of action. I’m getting ready to read the last of the trilogy, Silencing Eve and I can’t wait to delve into it. I’m really looking forward to finding out how it’s going to end. If you like thrillers, you may want to check the Eve Duncan books out. I feel you won’t be disappointed.
