Review: Eve -Iris Johansen



Are you fans of Iris Johansen's mysteries ? Do you enjoy her Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn Novels ?


Eve
Review: Eve - Iris Johansen - April 2011
When an author starts to do a single book about the main characters and then follows two more as Iris Johansen is currently doing as be prepared to read one on Quinn and lastly Bonnie -which by the way I'm so looking forward to the book about Bonnie :). It makes you wonder whether this is the author's way of saying goodbye to the series as it rounds the books off ?. If you are a fan of Iris Johansen's novels then you will be all too familiar with Eve Duncan , her partner Joe Quinn, her adopted daughter Jane and finally her daughter Bonnie who as we read was kidnapped when she was seven and murdered , though of course it still remains an unsolved case.
In Iris Johansen's latest novel Eve, we are drawn back into the world that is holds an obsession for Eve , the world of finding out what happened and who killed her precious Bonnie. The novel starts off with CIA Agent Catherine Ling muttering one name to Eve who happens to be top of their suspect list "John Gallo".  Hearing the name jolts a shock through Eve's body as she thought he died many years ago. The story then flicks back to Eve's past from the age of sixteen when she first met John Gallo, her knight in shining armour and the pure sexual relationship that they had up to the time where he had to go off to the Army and Eve in turn found out the she was pregnant with their daughter Bonnie. The story then flicks back to present time , where the CIA are hot on Gallo's trail and Eve receives a phone call from him , Eve eager as always to find out what happened to their daughter agrees to meet him and what becomes as a simple meeting ends up for Eve a race to save hers and the ones she loves lives as those who know about Bonnie's death and have a bounty for John's head are nearing closer.
Will Eve be able to discover the truth of what happened to John those many years ago and the truth of who killed her darling Bonnie and when she does discover the truth, will she be able to in turn accept it or will it push her over the edge of imbalance?
Find out more in this spine-tingling , fast-paced thriller that will have fans of Eve Duncan's wanting to read it in one sitting.

  1. The author and her publisher are taking "gross" advantage of their readers with this trilogy that will finally put an end to the mystery of who killed Bonnie Duncan. The end could easily have, and should have, been the reason for this book.

    I rooted for Eve and Quinn in the beginning of this series, but she became tiresome and predictable, and her relationship with the long-suffering Quinn became tiresome and predictable. This series of books are almost clones of one another; so much so that it seems that there must be an "Eve Duncan" template that the author uses to make some minor changes to each book, market it under a different title, and watch the money come in.
