Take a mystery complete with scenes that conjure up
supernatural feelings, add a healthy dose of paranormal
talents and a dash of yummy attraction and you have a recipe
for the next fabulous installment in the Eve
Duncan series by Iris Johansen. MIND GAME is an assault
on your rational instincts -- a true case of suspended belief.
Welcome to the world of Eve Duncan, forensic scientist
extraordinaire and her team of friends and family if MIND
GAME is your first book of this series. Don't worry Iris
Johansen makes sure you have all the necessary tools and
facts to navigate this new tale. Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn,
ex-SEAL and current police officer, adopted Jane when she
was ten. With their son Michael, now two, Eve, Cara, Joe,
Jane, and Michael are a wonderfully close family. Albeit
perhaps a bit unconventional but who said what is normal.
Love makes a family and these folks have it in spades.
Jane gets visions, not often but compelling and she records
them through her sketches. That's how she meets Lisa. Now
Jane is determined to keep Lisa safe. Seth Caleb is back in
Jane's life, somewhat at least, and through Caleb Janes
connection to Lisa has been strengthened.
Back at Loch Gaelkar Jane is once again thrust into MacGuff
and Jock's world looking for Cira's treasure. The big
question has always been in what form is this treasure
hidden in the mist. But the search and its resources are
unlimited. Jane's dreams involving Lisa follow her to Loch
Gaelkar and somehow Jane feels perhaps Cira could be a help
to find clues to Lisa's location and identity. Why is this
Lisa reaching out to Jane?
So much going on and the storyline just gets more mystic and
entangled with all the folks in Jane's life. Are you ready
for an adventure of the mind and heart -- then look no
further than MIND GAME.
As usual with an Iris Johansen, I feel compelled to be
sparing with details. That would be unfair. I leave the joy
of the discovery and voyage to you the reader. Suffice it to
say -- MIND GAME is a real page turner and such fun.
As I read MIND GAME I realized it could have easily been
titled Choices. At every twist and turn in this fight to
live drama someone has to make a choice and in the aftermath
learn how to live with their choices. Seth Caleb has spent
his life getting past his label of demon given by all who
knew him, pretended to love him with only two exceptions --
his sisters. Now Seth has only his younger sister Lisa.
Their young lives were filled with angst and harshness. Seth
did his best to keep Lisa safe and avoid her practicing any
of the extraordinary talents she shared with him. One demon
in the family was enough.
But there is one other person who has invaded Seth Caleb's
life -- Jane MacGuire. Jane with a hellish childhood of her
own is now finally part of a family.
MIND GAME is about manipulating people. Bad guy versus
possibly good guys in an otherworldly battle of the wits.
But it is a battle to the death and the odds seem stacked
against Caleb, Lisa, and Jane. Enjoy.
