The latest thriller in the Eve
Duncan series focuses on Eve's adopted daughter, Jane
Maguire. In previous books, Jane lost the love of her life,
Trevor, while almost losing her own life. She was saved by
Seth Caleb, a man with shocking abilities, and a man who
also desperately wants Jane. As Jane has worked through her
grief, and begun to move on, she is visiting her adoptive
parents and their two-year-old son, Michael. The peaceful
visit begins to be disrupted by Jane's being contacted
telepathically by an unknown woman demanding her help.
Mental communication, unnatural powers, and even ghosts are
not uncommon in the world of Eve Duncan.
Jane struggles to strengthen the mental connection in order
to find out how to help the woman calling to her.
Eventually, she learns that the woman is Lisa, and she is
Seth Caleb's sister, and she has been kidnapped with the
intention of luring Caleb to the kidnappers. These unknown
people have a target for assassination, but they can't get
to him. However, Caleb, with his unique powers, can.
The rollercoaster ride begins, as Jane is now in a position
to help Caleb, who has saved her life and has aided her
family on numerous occasions. They have to find a way to
rescue Lisa and outwit the as yet unknown kidnappers. If
that's not enough, Jane is still working with her Scottish
friends to find missing treasure. The action travels to
Dubai, then back to Scotland, and soon involves many of the
characters we've met in previous books. I would definitely
not recommend stepping late into this series, as some of the
characters, relationships, abilities, and history can be
overwhelming if you've not followed them from the beginning.
I highly enjoyed both the action/adventure part of MIND
GAME, as well as the personal relationships. As usual, there
was non stop excitement and suspense, but with quiet moments
of interaction in-between. Some long-running question marks
are resolved regarding the treasure, and there are
significant and surprising developments concerning Eve and
Joe, as well as Jane. Caleb has always been a mysterious
figure, and here we are allowed a deeper glimpse into this
enigmatic man and his past. I couldn't put the book down,
and finished it in one sitting, reading into the wee hours.
If you've been a fan of this continuing series, MIND GAME is
guaranteed not to disappoint.
