Ducan series is a new favorite of mine. MIND GAME
is book 22 in the series and pulls focuses to Jane MacGuire
and Seth Caleb. I love when Iris Johansen lets other
characters take the front seat for a book, allowing Eve
enough time to breathe.
Jane spends nights waking in terror from a recurring dream
about a young girl begging for help. As the nights turn to
weeks, Jane's dreams get more gutwrenching and she struggles
to find the identity of the girl. Her work life is hitting
a stride, but these repeated visions leave Jane with more
questions than answers and a faint realization that time is
of the essence -- in more ways than one.
I have to admit I struggled a bit with MIND GAME. The story
moved slowly and I was disappointed to see another crime
involving a young girl in peril. After spending three
previous books with Eve trying to save the young
Cara Delaney from getting killed this book felt like an
unnecessary rehash. I thought Johansen created rich,
enticing characters, but she did leave me wishing for a
different crime in the story.
