Her job is to put a face on the victims of violent crimes. But as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan works on the skull of a newly discovered victim, she's about to get the shock of her life. The murdered Jane Doe's face has been erased beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasn't trying to hide her identity. The plan is far more horrifying. For as Eve's skilled hands reveal the murdered girl's face, she recognizes someone she knows all too well. Someone who isn't dead. Yet.

To stop this twisted psychopath, Eve must put her own life in the balance. But that's not the worst of it --- when her adopted daughter Jane reveals a bizarre connection to the case, Eve can't stop her from joining the hunt for the killer. A hunt that will lead to a terrifying confrontation.

    " an Eve Duncan book "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allen | 2/16/2014

    " I have always enjoyed reading Iris Johansen's work. In particular, her Eve Duncan series. However, I found Blind Alley to be lacking the punch that her earlier works exhibited. As an avid reader, I am all for using the imagination a little when the story is captivating, but this teetered on the realm of too far fetched. However, the story was just captivating enough to hold the reader from beginning to end but I fear that the average person might be left as I was: unsatisfied. "

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Eve Duncan; a man is killing women, all of whom look like Eve's adopted daughter; ties to an ancient civilization lead to the climax. Abridged version. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosemary | 12/3/2013

    " I read half of this book, but gave up because it felt very similar to the other books I had read by this author, also the characters seemed quite two dimensional and I did not feel any particular empathy to them. "

    " Really interesting - the idea that someone who looks just like you is killed specifically because the killer thought it was you and then the only way to stay alive is to let your friends and family all think you are still dead until you can trap the killer yourself...awesome.. "

    " So far the books I've read by this author are not very entertaining. They are slow and very predictable. I guess if you have nothing else to read they are better than nothing and I have a few more that were given to me but they will sit on the back burner for now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Thatcher | 2/13/2012

    " I almost didn't read beacuse of all the negative commnents I read on Barnes and Noble reviews. I'm glad I read it, I was intrigued by Jane maturing and her accomplishments in this book. I've already started the next in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pa | 6/13/2011

    " This is a suspenseful tale involving a forensic sculptor and other characters. It is part mystery/suspense and part supernatural. It doesn't entirely succeed at either though it is an OK read. "

    " Well, I didn't realize I had already read this book until a few pages in ( I hate getting old!). I couldn't remember how it ended so I read it again. It is a little strange (hints of reincarnation) but it is very interesting and a quick read (especially the 2nd time)! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg | 1/3/2011

    " I was really drawn into this book in the beginning. However, I thought the second half really dragged and found my attention lacking. The author built to the climax for most of the book and then the climax was sort of quick and over with. Not my favorite by Iris Johansen. "
