In her second appearance, top forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is forced into a deadly game of terror with a twisted murderer who uses the mysterious circumstances surrounding her daughter's death as a way to lure her to him. 100,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
The killer knew Eve Duncan all too well. He knew the pain she felt for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body was never found. He knew that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors she would insist on identifying nine skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. And he knew that she wouldn't be able to resist the temptation of believing that one of those skeletons - the one belonging to a young girl - might be Bonnie's.
But that is only the beginning of the killer's sadistic game. Soon the calls begin to come. Sly, insinuating, chilling. Whoever is on the other end of the line is watching. He sees every move Eve makes. He savors her pain. He could strike at any time. But that's not what he wants - not yet.
In a heartbeat, Eve's world is turned upside down. Not even the two tough, powerful, and relentless men who would do anything to keep Eve safe can help her.
Now Eve Duncan must match wits with the most dangerous of psychopaths.

I agree with Rahmmie. I really disliked Eve's relentless contrariness. Her two male friends CONSTANT bickering over her was a big turn-off as well. Her work as a forensic sculptor had little effect in the story. This book was not enjoyable at all, and I am surprised I took the time to finish it. In movies you know what happens whenever a character tells someone "stay in the car" while he or she goes to investigate? You can count on Eve ignoring the advise of anyone.

I really tried to get into Johansen's books but unfortunately this was my second and last. There was absolutely no character development, the dialogue could have been exchanged between the books and it would have worked the same. I'm sure she's a good author, she just wasn't the one for me

She wasn't very interesting, but that kill made me finally realize that there was something very wrong and eventually led me to you.
