Eve by Iris Johansen

The #1 bestselling author delivers the first in a trilogy that will begin to answer questions that have haunted her legion of fans for over a decade, in her newest novel of breathtaking suspense.

Eve Duncan’s mission in life is to bring closure to the families who have experienced the agony of a missing child. As a forensic sculptor, she is able to piece together bones, create a face, and bring an identity to a child who would have otherwise gone unidentified…maybe forever. 

Eve is brilliant, and driven, and tormented--because her own daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her years ago. And Eve has never discovered what happened to her. But now a name from the past resurfaces, thanks to CIA agent Catherine Ling who knows all too well what it’s like to lose a child. After teaming up with Agent Ling to find her missing son, Eve and Catherine share a bond forged by their mutual pain. 

Now, Catherine challenges Eve with a name: John Gallo. A man from Eve’s past. A man, seemingly raised from the dead, whose whereabouts are unknown. Could Gallo be the missing piece to the puzzle that has haunted Eve for years? Why was he in Atlanta just before Bonnie’s disappearance? With a brilliant narrative that goes back to Eve Duncan’s early life, exploring her history and motivations like no other novel before, Eve reveals long-guarded secrets and is guaranteed to leave Johansen fans panting for more—soon to come in Quinn (October 2011) ~~ synopsis from Goodreads

My thoughts on Eve and this series ~~

This book focuses on Eve, the main character in Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series. This one is the 11th book in the series. I think I have read most of them and loved all of them. I was really excited when I saw that she was writing this mini-series within the series. Eve, Quinn and Bonnie focus on the three main characters in the books so the reader gets more information about each one of them, characters you already care about. 

Eve did not disappoint me. Ms. Johansen has once again written an exciting mystery with a great plot and twists and turns that kept me wanting to read 'just a little bit more'. And I loved that we got to learn more about Eve and what she went through when Bonnie was taken. This story was more personal and allowed me to understand Eve and her motivation a little better.

I highly recommend this series. I am looking forward to next reading Quinn and learning more about his character.
