It all begins with a painting called Guilt. Eve Duncan’s daughter, Jane, has no idea why she painted the portrait of the chilling face that now hangs in a Paris gallery. But the members of a cult that dates back to the time of Christ know both the face and the significance behind it. They believe that Jane must die—when the moment is right, and not an instant before she leads them to an ancient treasure whose value and power are beyond price. But for now they target those close to her, killing without mercy or conscience.

Jane’s journey takes her from Paris to Scotland to a cave in the Holy Land, as she fights with all she has to save her life. Even with Eve’s help, can she possibly escape before the clock stops ticking?

Eight Days to Live begins with an ancient conspiracy and a shocking betrayal, but will it end with the death of Eve Duncan and the sacrifice of Jane MacGuire? With Eight Days to Live, #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen delivers a thriller that will chill you to the core.

    " The subtitle of this is An Eve Duncan Foresnsics Thriller. It is a thriller in some places, but Eve Duncan and her husband Joe are not in much of it. Instead, the book focuses on their adopted daughter, Jane MacGuire, a promising and talented artist. Early on, in Paris, the owner of the gallery where Jane's works have been hanging is crucified, and her sister decapitated. Things slow down for a while, and a number of deadly men threaten Jane because of a particular painting that she has done. Jane has two rather talented and deadly men to guard her as she figures out some prophetic dreams and travels to interesting places. In this book, at least, I find Jane not to be as interesting a character as Eve Duncan--she seems one dimensional, cardboard, or cookie cutter. On page 217 of the hardcover edition, she pronounces, "With knowledge comes understanding." I almost had the impression that Iris Johansen needed another rewrite of this. "

    " continuing Scottish saga with Mc Duff "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari Ramirez | 2/11/2014

    " Still, Iris Johansen is showing her age. A 20 something year old should not say 'good Lord' or 'dear heavens' so many times if ever. Jane speaks like a 70 year old woman and there is not one character in this book that is pleasant. Even the ones that work together speak as if they hate each other. It's tiresome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 B J Couch | 2/10/2014

    " Maybe the Eve Duncan series is just getting old to me, or maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this one. I didn't think this one of the series was as good as the others. I love Iris Johansen's style of writing but for some reason this one seemed to drag & her filling the reader in on previous characters made the story lack some of the excitement of her previous writings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/9/2014

    " Although Eve Duncan is in this book, it's really a story featuring Jane Mcguire. It has a lot of suspense, action and romance. The premise was very interesting and engrossing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Brandt | 2/7/2014

    " Awesome book! This fast paced thriller was hard to put down. Another great book by Iris Johansen. I can't wait to read more stories with Caleb and Jane. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy jenkins | 1/31/2014

    " one of my favorite authors who writes with a combination of passion and grit. the stories are usually plausible even if the main characters are super intelligent, have vast connections globally and manage to survive horrendous terror. this isn't her best book. ok reading though - i actually stayed up late just to get it over with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheri Yoder | 1/25/2014

    " Love her books, This one was great. I have read them all and I can't put them down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 PastAllReason | 1/23/2014

    " Requires a willing suspension of disbelief, but I found it an easy read, and was happy to see another book featuring Jane. If you are expecting to see much of Eve and Joe, this is not your book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angela | 1/16/2014

    " Not a very good read. I was expecting this to be about Eve since it is supposed to be an Eve Duncan forensics thriller. It was all about her adoptive daughter Jane. The storyline was boring and the climax came at the very end. "

    " Great Book couldnt put it down!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/2/2014

    " Good intense reading, little to imaginatory/non-realistic aspect in the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 1/2/2014

    " Jane was blah in this book. The whole book was not up to snuff. I felt the need to flip pages to find a more interesting part. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 12/16/2013

    " Not my favorite of hers. I think sometimes I keep reading series books because I feel like I have to. "

    " ok. liked the book was about Jane - but the story didn't grab me like most of her other books I liked IJ better as a straight romance author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tricia | 2/26/2013

    " Fast-paced, action-packed with a little paranormal thrown in. Perfect for me! I've been reading this series for years and I really enjoyed this one. I had a hard time putting it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Rahn | 10/28/2012

    " Not too bad. I like Eve better then Jane but I guess you have to evolve at some point. Love listening to audiobooks when there are irish characters. "

    " I found this story hard to get into at first but then it took off. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 3/4/2012

    " Why do I keep reading this series? I think I need to find out if Eve Duncan ever finds her daughters body. Is it worth finding out is the question. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzanne | 2/17/2012

    " Not nearly as good as most of Johansens books. "

    " 70 pages in and just can't get into THIS book of hers either!!! This isn't an Eve Duncan novel.. This is a Jane McGuire novel?! After reading the other reviews on here I've decided it's just not worth my time. I have an arse load of other stuff I can read. So onto the next book. "
