Series Eve Duncan #9

First comes darkness, then comes fear - Eve Duncan is back! Blockbuster New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen’s latest thriller brings Eve closer to discovering her daughter’s killer…and into a web of danger from which she may not be able to escape…

Eve Duncan returns in a thriller that pits her against the most evil mind she has ever encountered: a ruthless killer who taunts her with his every move…and who has a special affinity for blood. When a Georgia senator’s daughter is found murdered, and her body drained of blood, Eve Duncan is drawn into the web of Kevin Jelak—a serial murderer who is on Eve’s short list of killers who might know something about her missing daughter Bonnie. When a goblet of blood is found in Eve’s refrigerator, she knows the taunting is over…and the games have begun. As Eve and Jelak engage in a dance of death, Eve must call upon those she loves and trusts the most…even if it means bringing them into the game as well.

I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? Caleb

What I liked the Least? Less focus on forensic sculpting

Review: In this book, I found the "guest characters" more interesting than the usual players. The bad guy is way creepy, and his belief that he can truly be some kind of vampire is trey interesting. And Seth Caleb, an ally of sorts in search of the bad guy, is a very intriguing addition to the cast & I’m hoping to see him again. While not a favorite series, I did get some enjoyment from this book.

Recommended to: Fans of the series

Best Quote: “In the end, we all have to decide what we're willing to give up for payback. We all have parents or grandparents or children who will need us. Agonizing decisions sometimes. You have to weigh the memories and debt against what's being taken from you.”
