“Do you still miss your little Bonnie?”This one sentence, spoken by a madman in an anonymous phone call, is all it takes to drag Eve Duncan right back to that horrifying day years ago when her only daughter vanished without a trace. Since that day, her life has become an obsession to find Bonnie’s remains and put the pain of her death to rest. However, one man wants nothing more than to prevent that from happening. He is every woman’s waking nightmare: a brilliant, ruthless killer whose hunting ground stretches from coast to coast. But taunting Eve Duncan might be his first and last mistake....For Eve is armed with more than just her talent as a forensic sculptor and her fierce protective nature. She brings with her former Navy SEAL Joe Quinn, an Atlanta detective who will do whatever it takes to bring Eve some kind of peace, even if he has to lie to her to do it.Eve’s only salvation may be through the mysterious skills of another woman whose chilling talent leaves her as tormented as Eve—and as driven to bring this monster to justice. But when lives are in danger, every step could be a trap, and every inch of solid ground seems to be shifting under their feet. And this killer wants nothing more than to lure Eve further and further into his swamp of madness....
Born in St. Louis, Missouri, American author Iris Johansen went through the usual life duties of being wife and mother, until her children left home to attend college. In 1980, she began experiencing success with her writing of category romances. Next, Johansen started writing romance novels that had a historical and a suspense theme intertwined. One such novel was her successful, The Wind Dancer, published in 1991. Then, in 1996, she changed again, this time to crime fiction. To date, that has been her most successful genre. She has had seventeen consecutive New York Times bestsellers through 2006.
Johansen lives near Atlanta, Georgia, and has two children. Son, Roy Johnson, is an award winning screenwriter and novelist in his own right. Daughter, Tamara, serves as her mother's research assistant.
All her books are starting to seem to be the same thing over and over
When I started Quicksand and realized that Eve Duncan was still looking for her daughter, Bonnie, I wondered how much longer the search would go on. This is book 12, for goodness sakes! However, I was soon surprised to learn that this installment would bring together Eve Duncan and Megan Blair from Pandora's Daughter, another of Johansen's books. What Megan brings to the table will delight you and have you anticipating the next installment.
