If you’re a follower of the Eve Duncan series, you’ll want to read this one. We have Eve, who’s willing to take incredibly stupid risks because of her Bonnie obsession instead of, I don’t know, joining a support group for parents of missing children or family murdered killed by serial killers ; Joe, who’s growing more and more frustrated with Eve’s consistent determination and disappointment; a one-dimensional bad guy who says “bitch” a lot; and a precocious child to serve as further proof that Johansen has no idea how to write kids.

Quicksand falls into the latter. Will her relationship with Joe stand the test again? Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Honestly, Eve, you are a bit helpless. But if you’re a fan of Iris Johansen, this is definitely one of her better ones. Plus, it always bothered me how Iris Johansen never have her characters any true humanity.

Eve Duncan Book 8 Hardcover: Of course an event like this is life changing, but Eve put a positive spin to it – she quicksnd her life together, went to school, and became a forensic sculptor, helping ‘find’ lost people’s identities and letting them ‘go home’ to their families for proper burial.

When I johanseh of the explosion about a third of the way through the book, I wondered how it would be possible for the author to sustain the story after that high point. But they know nothing else, but these jouansen traits, and they are not interesting or mysterious. Deciding to take matters into her own hands, she enlists the clairvoyant skills of Dr. With jphansen pace and gut-wrenching intensity, Quicksand is Iris Johansen at her best.

Makes for a nice twist. At first, it was intimated that Eve dreamed of Bonnie and their conversations. When Eve’s love interest, Atlanta police lieutenant Joe Quinn, tracks down elusive child predator Henry Kistle to a small town in Illinois, Quinn alerts the local authorities and sets off a series of bloody events that lead Eve and Megan Blair to a remote area in the Okefenokee swamp where they’ll either discover the whereabouts of Bonnie’s body—or come face-to-face with a psychopath bent on killing and burying them all in unmarked graves.

Although she’s scared, she knows that that’s irid Henry is getting his satisfaction, and somehow manages, at age 9, to gather up the courage to talk back to him, spit in his face, and pretend she’s not scared.

They are the best part about this book. I’m from Idaho, currently renting an island home in the Bahamas for two weeks to finish writing my third book.
