All it takes is one drop of blood...

When a Georgia senator’s daughter is found murdered, and her body drained of blood, Eve enters the world of a serial murderer—a twisted psychopath whose name is on Eve’s shortlist of killers who might know something about her missing daughter, Bonnie.

To whet a killer’s appetite...

But when Eve receives a terrifying calling card in the form of a single goblet of blood, she knows the taunting is over...and the games have begun. As Eve and the killer engage in a dance of death, Eve has no choice but to call upon those she loves and trusts the most—Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire—even if it means putting them in the path of someone whose bloodlust cannot be quenched.

And draw Eve Duncan into his web....

Eve believes this psychotic mind holds the answers to the questions that have tormented her for years. And she’ll do almost anything to get these answers. Like a spider hunting his prey, this killer will wait for the perfect moment to strike—the moment when Eve least expects it. And when she has the most to lose...

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Renie | 2/20/2014

    " I thought I'd heard this was a good author. Ugh. One-dimensional characters, robotic dialog, and lacking suspense or intrigue. Don't bother. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Wofford | 2/6/2014

    " loved the book! It's been a while since I've read Iris Johansen. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christina | 2/4/2014

    " This book had a lot more about Joe in it and I really enjoyed the new side of Joe we see in this book. Excellent read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela Mcvay | 1/30/2014

    " I only gave it 2 stars because I don't like the vampire genre! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 1/24/2014

    " A few goofy parts, but I thought author did a great job with with the suspense. Is there a book after this featuring Jane and Caleb Seth? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty410 | 1/20/2014

    " This is a repeat in a series about Eve Duncan, who is a forensic sculptor (recreating the person from a skull for identification).But in this one there was a bit too much of the desire of the killer trying to become a vampire. Eve is still trying to recover the missing body of her 7 yr.old daughter. Unknown is that killer or how it happened, so I will probably read the next book, hoping that it gets back on track, searching for Bonnie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 1/15/2014

    " I am really not sure what to say about this book. I am a huge Iris Johansen fan, especially her Eve Duncan series. However, this book wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be. I have been disappointed in her last few books and that makes me sad. She has another book about Eve Duncan coming in April 2010, I sure hope it's better than this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 1/10/2014

    " This time it is Joe Quinn who is seeing ghosts. This won involves a deadly vampire wannabe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryEllen | 11/18/2013

    " Murder, mystery, paranormal, and solid characters. Excellent read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 11/12/2013

    " I just finished this book. I quick read but it kept me going. If you like things were it's a little outside the box, it's a good thriller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 7/14/2013

    " Kind of getting redundant. Though I do love her characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kiley Reed | 6/22/2013

    " Honestly I love these books, but lately they seem to be lacking something. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L | 6/22/2013

    " This is the 9th in Johansen's series about Eve Duncan and her Joe. This was involved a wannabe Vampire and ritual killings....again, Eve is visited by her daughter Bonnie, and Joe finds that he has developed a new psychic talent after touching the hand of Megan in the 8th book, Quicksand. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Whikmn | 1/26/2013

    " The Eve Duncan series need to end, they are all starting to sound the same. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lilly-Anne | 1/14/2013

    " A thriller with a little romance and vampires. Entertaining read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tory | 10/3/2012

    " Worst book I have ever read. No investigations at all, just paranormal, a complete turn from the entire Eve Duncan series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet Crossland | 8/19/2012

    " always keeps you involved. I stayed up all night reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 5/14/2012

    " Blood Game was a very intriguing book. It kept you reading to the very end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle DeKorver | 2/14/2012

    " Wow! Gory. I don't know how people come up with such gross topics, but it definately drew me in and kept me. Evil characters and some psychics stuff. Overall I really liked it. I marked it down one for the ewwww factor! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gerry | 11/6/2011

    " Eve Duncan novel -- wonderfully written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M.E. | 11/6/2011

    " pretty predictible, but fun to listen to none the less "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Syafrizal Abu Mansor | 10/27/2011

    " The storyline is very interesting and invite readers to experience the thriller with its plot and characters. I love Caleb the vampire hunter/slayer with his weird kind of way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trish | 9/24/2011

    " Another great book by Iris Johansen. Cudos to her for fleshing this story out even more to include Joe learning how to deal with his new "powers". I feel like we're getting closer to the truth as to what happened with Bonnie. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Wendy | 9/1/2011

    " Way too much for me.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 7/23/2011

    " I'd like to know why so many killers claim to have killed Eve's daughter. Is this normal? Is Eve really that famous? I still enjoy Ms. Johansen's writing style but this constant struggle to find closure for Bonnie's killer is a taking a tad long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 5/27/2011

    " I was torn between 2 and 3 stars. It did keep me reading, but good grief, *another* crazed killer who has to have Eve Duncan? I think reading too many of her books too close together is not a good thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/18/2011

    " A few goofy parts, but I thought author did a great job with with the suspense. Is there a book after this featuring Jane and Caleb Seth? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 5/8/2011

    " The story was interesting but the mystical, vampire-like character was trite. Perhaps more history surrounding the symbolism would have been more compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/3/2011

    " loved the book! It's been a while since I've read Iris Johansen. I really enjoyed it.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 2/20/2011

    " I've enjoyed the Eve Duncan books a lot -- Even when you can figure out most of what's going on, she's usually good about throwing you a curve ball. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bud | 1/23/2011

    " Another in the Eve Duncan series...I've apparently missed one in the series...I'll need to go back, but I wish she would find her daughter! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheryl | 1/12/2011

    " So far - this is OK. I do not care for the person doing the reading on the cd and that affects how I feel about the story. Plus it is "very" abridged or seems so. No character development. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 1/8/2011

    " I finished this book on 1/10/2011. Thought it a good, suspenseful read. "
