The New York Times
bestselling author of Firestorm, Iris
Johansen, returns with a psychological thriller so terrifying, so relentlessly
paced, it won’t leave you time to catch your breath before the next shock
comes. A forensic sculptor is locked in a deadly duel with a serial killer
determined to destroy her—one life at a time.
Eve Duncan’s job is to put a face on the faceless victims of
violent crimes. Her work not only comforts their survivors—but helps catch
their killers. But there is another, more personal reason that Eve Duncan is
driven to do the kind of work she does—a dark nightmare from a past she can
never bury. And as she works on the skull of a newly discovered victim, that
past is about to return all over again.
The victim is a Jane Doe found murdered, her face erased
beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasn’t just trying to hide her
identity. The plan was far more horrifying. For as the face forms under Eve’s
skilled hands, she is about to get the shock of her life. The victim is someone
she knows all too well. Someone who isn’t dead. Yet.
Instantly Eve’s peaceful life is shattered. The sanctuary of
the lakeside cottage she shares with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and their
adopted daughter Jane has been invaded by a killer who’s sent the grimmest of
threats: the face of his next victim. To stop him, Eve must put her own life in
the balance and question everything and everyone she trusts. Not even Quinn can
go where Eve must go this time.
As the trail of faceless bodies leads to a chilling revelation,
Eve finds herself trying to catch a master murderer whose grisly work is a
testament to a mind warped by perversion and revenge. Now she must pit her
skills against his in a showdown where the stakes are life itself—and where the
unbearable cost of failure will make Eve’s own murder seem like a mercy
killing. Download and start listening now!
