Romance Suspense | Thriller
The New York Times bestselling author of Firestorm, Iris
Johansen, returns with a psychological thriller so
terrifying, so relentlessly paced, it wonâ€™t leave you time
to catch your breath before the next shock comes. A forensic
sculptor is locked in a deadly duel with a serial killer
determined to destroy herâ€”one life at a time.
Eve Duncanâ€™s job is to put a face on the faceless victims of
violent crimes. Her work not only comforts their
survivorsâ€”but helps catch their killers. But there is
another, more personal reason that Eve Duncan is driven to
do the kind of work she doesâ€”a dark nightmare from a past
she can never bury. And as she works on the skull of a newly
discovered victim, that past is about to return all over again.
The victim is a Jane Doe found murdered, her face erased
beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasnâ€™t just
trying to hide her identity. The plan was far more
horrifying. For as the face forms under Eveâ€™s skilled hands,
she is about to get the shock of her life. The victim is
someone she knows all too well. Someone who isnâ€™t dead. Yet.
Instantly Eveâ€™s peaceful life is shattered. The sanctuary of
the lakeside cottage she shares with Atlanta detective Joe
Quinn and their adopted daughter Jane has been invaded by a
killer whoâ€™s sent the grimmest of threats: the face of his
next victim. To stop him, Eve must put her own life in the
balance and question everything and everyone she trusts. Not
even Quinn can go where Eve must go this time.
As the trail of faceless bodies leads to a chilling
revelation, Eve finds herself trying to catch a master
murderer whose grisly work is a testament to a mind warped
by perversion and revenge. Now she must pit her skills
against his in a showdown where the stakes are life
itselfâ€”and where the unbearable cost of failure will make
Eveâ€™s own murder seem like a mercy killing.
