THE FIRST EVE DUNCAN NOVEL

An unidentified skull, a trail of shocking secrets, and a woman whose talented hands could reveal the terrifying truth--#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen blends these elements into a compelling novel of suspense, and introduces her most popular character ever: forensic sculptor Eve Duncan.

After her beloved daughter vanishes, Eve Duncan survives by immersing herself in her work. The best in her elite field at rebuilding faces from fragments of skull bones, she helps to put a name to a face, to identify missing children. It is Eve's way of coming to terms with her personal nightmare. But more terror lies ahead when she accepts a job from billionaire John Logan. Beneath Eve's gifted hands, a face begins to emerge from the skull he has given her to reconstruct--a face that no one was ever meant to see. Now Eve is trapped in a web of murder and deceit as powerful enemies rush to cover up the truth, determined that their secrets go to the grave--even if Eve gets buried with them.

There is nothing wrong with the plot in this book, but the development of the main character leaves a lot to be desired. The author uses repetition of the same lines, situations, interactions, etc. to drive home the idea that the main character is a strong woman with a mind of her own who has fought against extreme odds. It really gets irritating after the third or fourth time in a span of 20 pages

Good thriller, looking forward to reading the whole series.The dialogue was a bit drawn out and repetitive at times, but the story was good.

I really loved this book and can't wait to read the rest of the series. I had a very hard time putting down the book. It was a real page turner. It was quite a mature read for me though.
