In this novel we are taken back to the very beginning, before Bonnie was even born, when we meet Gallo, about to join the army, and follow his intense relationship with Eve ... and the conception of Bonnie. When Eve is confronted with the possibility that it is Gallo, Bonnie's own father, who kidnapped and killed Bonnie, she had to find out. The question throughout the novel is whether Gallo is being honest with Eve, or whether he is leading her into his own trap.

I love her stand alone books but for some reason I don't like the Eve Duncan books. I think I just got tired of Eve going on every other page about her daughter Bonnie. Okay, it was a mothers worse nightmare but enough is enough. ( )

I think I inhaled this book. It kept me up late last night and then I couldn't put it down except to take a nap today. Very cool to find out about young Eve. Don't know that I buy John Gallo as Bonnie's killer though.... ( )

Wow. This took me by surprise. Not my normal genre of reading, but I found I could not put it down. I did not expect the cliff-hanger ending. ( )

This book was great! After reading so many Eve Duncan stories and never really knowing what was going on, we finally got a taste of the back story concerning Eve when she was just a child and before she got pregnant with Bonnie. The ending certainly had me screaming because of the cliff-hanger, but at least we won't have to wait too long. Just 3 months until Quinn! ( )

A nasty, violent book with an inconclusive, cliff-hanger ending and a cast of unbelievable characters which includes a demented ex-military man, a serial killer and a murdered child who speaks from beyond the grave. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312651201, Hardcover)

The #1 bestselling author delivers the first in a trilogy that will begin to answer questions that have haunted her legion of fans for over a decade, in her newest novel of breathtaking suspense

Eve Duncan’s mission in life is to bring closure to the families who have experienced the agony of a missing child. As a forensic sculptor, she is able to piece together bones, create a face, and bring an identity to a child who would have otherwise gone unidentified…maybe forever. Eve is brilliant, and driven, and tormented--because her own daughter, Bonnie, was taken from her years ago. And Eve has never discovered what happened to her. But now a name from the past resurfaces, thanks to CIA agent Catherine Ling who knows all too well what it’s like to lose a child.

After teaming up with Agent Ling to find her missing son, Eve and Catherine share a bond forged by their mutual pain. Now, Catherine challenges Eve with a name: John Gallo. A man from Eve’s past. A man, seemingly raised from the dead, whose whereabouts are unknown. Could Gallo be the missing piece to the puzzle that has haunted Eve for years? Why was he in Atlanta just before Bonnie’s disappearance? With a brilliant narrative that goes back to Eve Duncan’s early life, exploring her history and motivations like no other novel before, Eve reveals long-guarded secrets and is guaranteed to leave Johansen fans panting for more—soon to come in Quinn (October 2011).
