Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen is back with the first book in a chilling new Eve Duncan trilogy that asks the question: will Eve survive what lies ahead?

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan's mission is to bring closure to the families whose loved ones have vanished. She knows their anguish—her own beloved daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her when Bonnie was just seven years old. It is only recently that this mystery was resolved and Eve could begin her journey to peace. Now, Jim Doane wants the same kind of answers that Eve always longed for. His twenty-five-year old son may or may not be dead and he has only burned skull fragments as possible evidence. But he cannot go to the police for answers without risking his own secrets and dark past, so instead he chooses a bold step to find the truth—a truth that takes Eve down a twisted path of madness and evil and into the darkest heart of her own history. Doane needs Eve Duncan's skills and he'll do anything to get them.
Even if it means taking Eve.

Taking eve

So disappointed that an author I enjoy has to rely on cliffhangers to sell a book.
Way to much similarity to other eve books with the only interesting twist being the relationship that will be Margaret and Caleb as she makes it clear Trevor is meant for Jane.
This book was dull and lacked the edge of her I expecting.

Taking Eve

I am a HUGE fan of Iris Johansen's writing, but this was not her best book. It was a shame she ruined her main characters by making them 'so desperate' they became weak. Even lesser characters from past novels were affected in a negative way. I was bored through most of this book and disappointed to learn that I have to wait until mid-July to find out how the story ends. I think I'll wait to read the reviews of her next book before I buy it.

Taking Eve

It has been my experience that good writers get better as they mature. Not so apparently. I have enjoyed ms Johansens earlier books but Bonnie and this one were so disappointing! Stilted dialogue, cardboard shallow characters. Formulaic antagonists and story development. Clearly she is coasting and not tying to deliver. If either of these books would've been her first attempts, I don't believe she would be at all respected in her field. I won't be purchasing her next.
