From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a new explosive thriller featuring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan. Iris Johansen returns with a thrilling novel of action and danger where fan favorite Eve Duncan is thrown once more into a deadly game of intrigue. It begins when Eve receives a package containing a skull-and instructions for Eve to do her work reconstructing it. When she does, a beautiful woman's face emerges. But when Eve is introduced to the dead woman's mirror image, a game is on where her twin's life hangs in the balance.
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.
A huge disappointment. The synopsis was intriguing, but the book itself was awful. What a shame because I used to really like this author. It was clear to me that she didn't even try with this one. That happens sometimes with best-selling authors, once they've written a few good books they figure anything with their name on it will sell afterwards. I can't believe it got 4 out of 5 stars??? For the life of me, I can't figure out why??? Maybe the first and the last couple of chapters were interesting. But everything in between was boring and like pulling teeth to get a story out of it. I fell asleep at least a dozen times listening to it, out of sheer boredom. The narrator didn't help matters, since she couldn't pronounce the name "Jacque". She called him "JOCK"!!! It should have sounded like"Jack", not "Jock". Bad narrators can ruin even the best of books, and this one didn't need any help being awful. Sorry, but I have no clue why anyone liked this dry / boring book. I thought it was a waste of time and money. Big disappointment. Think I'm done with Iris Johansen books. Don't think I'd listen to another of her books even if it were free, it wasn't worth the time I wasted on it! What a shame, because in the past decade prior, her books were good. She doesn't even bother to try now.
