Publisher Description

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

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "
