New York Times bestseller Iris Johansen is back with another high octane thriller that will leave your mind racing and your heart pounding. Despite her tragic childhood, violin prodigy Cara Delaney has finally found peace in her career as a professional musician and stability in her relationship with her guardians, forensic sculptor Eve Duncan and ex-Navy SEAL Joe Quinn. If only Jock Gavin, Cara's lifelong friend and a man with his own twisted history, would even talk to her, everything would be perfect. But the carefully constructed life Cara has built for herself is suddenly threatened when she is kidnapped by a mysterious man from her grandfather's past, setting off a violent chain of events that puts everyone Cara loves in danger. Will Cara become a tribute to her family's dark past, or will she be able to keep herself and her loved ones alive? Praise for Iris Johansen: "A tantalizing puzzle...fans of paranormal suspense will be rewarded." --Publishers Weekly "A fun read filled with plenty of action and mystery...Eve Duncan did not disappoint!" --Criminal Element on Shattered Mirror "A fun plot...charming." --Kirkus on Shattered Mirror.

Booklist Review: "If revenge is a dish best served cold, then John Svardak's vendetta against his longtime nemesis, Sergei Kaskov, has reached polar proportions. While a young man imprisoned in a Russian gulag, Svardak took his first act of vengeance against Kaskov in a disfiguring injury that ruined Kaskov's musical aspirations. In retaliation, Kaskov murdered Svardak's father and brother. Now, decades later, Svardak hopes to settle the score by kidnapping and brutally killing Kaskov's granddaughter, violin virtuoso Cara Delaney, and endangering the lives of those closest to her: Joe Quinn, ex-Navy SEAL husband of forensic-sculptor Eve Duncan; their psychically empathic son, Michael; and the charismatic but deadly Jock Gavin, the love of Cara's life. In her captivity, Cara finds a fierce inner strength that propels her to take control of her fate, to the dismay of Gavin and Duncan. Focusing on the manipulative nature of friends and enemies, lovers and family, Johansen's psychologically intense thriller featuring the newly empowered Delaney, who trades her passiveness for determination, will resonate with prescient timeliness. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Johansen's Eve Duncan series is a perennial favorite of crime-fiction fans.--Carol Haggas Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fans of paranormal romantic suspense will welcome bestseller Johansen's engrossing 24th Eve Duncan novel (after 2018's Shattered Mirror). After performing in Charlotte, N.C., Cara Delaney, whom many consider "the most brilliant violinist to come along since Yehudi Menuhin," flies to Atlanta for a fundraiser. Atlanta is also the home of her guardians-Eve, "one of the foremost forensic sculptors in the world," and Eve's husband, Det. Joe Quinn (ex-SEAL, ex-FBI)-and the couple's precocious 10-year-old son, Michael, whose telepathic powers allow him to communicate with others across long distances. Cara checks into a hotel where she knows Jock Gavin, her "best friend, her savior, the man who made everything right just by smiling at her," is also staying. Jock visits Cara in her room, and the romantic tension sizzles as Cara tries to persuade Jock to cross the line from friends to lovers. Shortly after Jock leaves Cara's room, she's kidnapped. Eve, Joe, and Jock race to the rescue. Strong female characters and a twist-filled plot will keep readers turning the pages. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
