The killer knows Eve Duncan all too well. He knows the pain she still feels for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body has never been found. He knows that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors, she will insist on identifying nine skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. And he knows that she will want to believe that the skeleton belonging to a young girl is Bonnie's.So begins the killer's sadistic game. Soon the phone calls to Eve begin. Sly, insinuating, chilling. Whoever is on the other end of the line is watching every move she makes. He savors her pain. He could strike at any time. But that's not what he wants -- not yet.In a heartbeat, Eve's life is turned upside down, and no one can help her. Because the killer wants her alone. Now Eve must match wits with the most dangerous of psychopaths. A man for whom life and death is little more than a game. A killing game. And he won't stop playing until he's gotten the one thing he wants the most: Eve's life.

(The second book in the Eve Duncan series)

I agree with Rahmmie. I really disliked Eve's relentless contrariness. Her two male friends CONSTANT bickering over her was a big turn-off as well. Her work as a forensic sculptor had little effect in the story. This book was not enjoyable at all, and I am surprised I took the time to finish it. In movies you know what happens whenever a character tells someone "stay in the car" while he or she goes to investigate? You can count on Eve ignoring the advise of anyone.

I really tried to get into Johansen's books but unfortunately this was my second and last. There was absolutely no character development, the dialogue could have been exchanged between the books and it would have worked the same. I'm sure she's a good author, she just wasn't the one for me

She wasn't very interesting, but that kill made me finally realize that there was something very wrong and eventually led me to you.
