Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare that permeated her days and nights, and from which there was no escape. I was terribly disappointed in the ending of this series, and each book of the trilogy got more frustrating for me. In mysteries I crave action, danger, and puzzles. As all the other readers of Ms Johansen I wanted to know what happened to Bonnie and for Eve to found her and bring her home but, and this is a personal but, I don't know if I liked the way the author found to resolve the mystery of Bonnie. I enjoyed getting to know them, They kinda feel like old friends and I will miss them if this is truely the last book in the series. I don't understand why all her prior books kept me entertained page after page and this one was so dull.
. In 1996 Johansen switched genres, turning to crime fiction, with which she has had great success. A book that has been read but is in good condition. How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable? One never knows when the wind of change and idiocy comes along. How does this one compare? She began writing after her children left home for college, and first achieved success in the early 1980s writing category romances.
I loved Eve, Joe, and Bonnie. And that Bonnie's disappearance was not as random as everyone had always believed. I was fascinated with Eve finding the lost children with the sculpting of the skulls. Now Eve gets trapped in a web of deceit and murder. In fact, it was so good that I am going to start with the very first Eve Duncan book and start reading again, beginning to finish. I found that the book Eve had lots of sex.
The world-renowned forensic sculptor who gives new life murdered victims. Unfortunately it only slowed them down and made them feel like 1,000 pages instead. She began writing crime fiction in 1986 but still writes some romance novels as well. There was absolutely too much suffering on every single person's part everyone in Bonnie suffered. The Kendra Michael series is co-authored with her son Roy Johansen, and it currently includes 6 main books and a novella. By the third chapter I was completely fed up with the writing and the character development. I loved the end and I cried.
There wasn't any new building or strengthening of relationships. Eve and Joe also have an adopted daughter Jane who they took in when she was about ten over a decade ago. But the relationship between Bonnie and Eve always felt genuine and special to me and that alone kept me reading and wanting to see these two get some closure. I feel mixed about this book. How does Bonnie help everyone,come to terms. She has been on the search for years and years to find the truth, and this book explains it all. Bonnie brings us the long awaited answer with one unrelenting surprise after another in a well-written, well-crafted story of suspense, fear, and deep heart-wrenching emotion as Eve Duncan, Joe Quinn, and other characters added throughout the series, finally find the answer Eve has long sought, who ripped Bonnie from her life.
You have to read the entire trilogy to find out for yourself. Not enough answers or maybe the wrong answers? Yet, Joe feels that Gallo did not want to really wound this guy, hesitated and could have cost Catherine her life. Now a gifted arson investigator haunted by her mother's death in a fire, Murphy teams up with a mysterious operative Silver to stop a psychopath determined to set the world on fire. The introduction of Megan to this series was done perfectly. Not once a book, but time after time after time. Bonnie disappeared without a trace.
But the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that Bonnie's father is a key player in solving this monstrous puzzle. In the opening plot of the novel, it is shown that the killer is very well familiar with Eve Duncan. I personally liked it for the sole reason that I didn't expect it. She has taken up the job so as to overcome her personal grief of the loss of her daughter Bonnie, who was murdered by her kidnappers and her dead body was never found. Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape. From the backliner: The truth has eluded her With 100 books under her belt, New York Times bestselling author, Iris Johansen, has delivered top notch suspense year after year, after finally leaving the romance which made her famous.
I was fascinated with Eve finding the lost children with the sculpting of the skulls. When Eve Duncan gave birth to Bonnie, she experienced a love she never knew existed. I skimmed dozens of pages at a time just to get to something interesting. She disagrees and he does everything in his power to convince her Joe is wrong. She only started to write books after her children went to college.
