Scientist and dedicated doctor Diane Connors has a secret that could shock the world if she survives to tell it. So she turns to people she knows she can trust - Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn. She knows he will take THE BULLET meant for her because that is the kind of man he is. After all, he is her ex husband.
Diane brings a load of problems to the doorstep of Eve and Joe and anytime there are unidentified remains Eve finds she has to help. It is what she does after all - find closure for those who are missing loved ones if possible. Finally happy in their quiet life, living with their extraordinary son the last thing they want is to face danger but if what Diane says is true then they have no choice or the world will lose a miracle.
THE BULLET is an action-packed, emotion-filled storyline that only author Iris Johansen can give her readers. I do have to admit I may have been biased against Diane Connor, for Eve's sake - because I really didn't get much of a feel for her in past books. I just saw a spoiled rich girl but in THE BULLET she is intelligent, strong-willed and determined. There are still a few emotional vexations from the past that need to be worked out but they are fixed up quite nicely.
Along for the ride is Catherine Ling who was called to bodyguard Diane by Hu Chang (from Catherine Ling series) and her nemesis and sometimes lover Richard Cameron pops in. There are a number of amazing characters that fill out the pages with a life of their own - some you will love and others you most certainly will not even like! And, of course, Michael, Eve and Joe's amazing son, who sees things in dreams that are more than dreams, helps to solve the mystery and save a number of lives.
THE BULLET will have you riveted to the pages from the first to the last as you read this action-packed, suspense-filled, emotional (with a few heartwarming touches of romance) amazing book.
