Summary

Summary

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan has a rare—and bittersweet—gift. Her unique ability to reconstruct the identity of the long dead from their skulls has helped bring closure to parents of missing children. For Eve, whose own daughter was murdered and her body never found, the job is a way of coming to terms with her personal nightmare.

When she is approached by billionaire magnate John Logan to reconstruct the face of an adult murder victim, only his promise of a sizable charitable contribution persuades her to accept. It's a simple bargain, yet it's the most dangerous one she'll ever make. The warning signs are clear. There is the specially equipped lab Eve is taken to in a country inn turned high-tech security fortress in rural Virginia. Surveillance cameras monitor her every move. The telephones are tapped. And then there is Logan himself—by turns ruthless, charming, and desperate.

But it's too late for Eve to walk out. The skull has begun to reveal its shocking identity, trapping her in a frightening web of murder and deceit. To free herself, she has no choice but to expose that identity and to trust Logan, the man who put her life in danger, a man who may see her as an expendable pawn.                                          

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Iris Johansen is incomparable.” Tami Hoag, New York Times bestselling author
“A fast-paced, nonstop, clever plot in which Johansen mixes political intrigue, murder, and suspense.” USA Today
“Johansen makes an admirable effort to give psychological depth even to her villains, and her action scenes use terse prose to build tension. With the help of well-timed, steady disclosures and surprising revelations, the book's twists and turns manage to hold the reader hostage until the denouement, a sure crowd pleaser.” Publishers Weekly
“Johansen’s complex plot, with numerous twists and turns, keeps the listener guessing…a nonstop plot.” Library Journal
“Johansen, who cut her teeth writing romance novels, skillfully wraps this riveting combination of action, suspense, and forensic science in layers of sexual tension with just the subtlest hint that romance may erupt…the detailed focus on forensic sculpting makes this appealing to fans of Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs.” Booklist
