Interesting enough book. I listed to it on audiobooks. Would give it about 3 stars ( )

I love Iris Johansen's books, this was no exception. I was intrigued by the addition of Beth Avery and her relationship to Eve. I have come to realize that most of the women in the books seem to be self-absorbed and varying degrees of selfish. Eve's mother is a horrible woman, but until these last few books I didn't see it coming out in Eve - Beth is similar as well. I enjoyed the book. I am looking forward to the rest of the series - who knows... ( )

First Thought when Finished: Iris Johansen really hit it out of the park with Sleep No More. I love the combination of Eve and Kendra!

Quick Thoughts: Sleep No More combined great characters, a masterful plot, and a quick pace to produce one heck of a read. I really enjoyed seeing Kendra (from her other series) work with Eve in this story. The added element of Eve's sister (that she didn't know about) being thrown into the mix really added oomph to the story. (NOTE: I am kind of hoping that Eve's sister becomes part of Kendra's series). Eve is a fascinating character and her growth in this book was amazing. At its heart, Sleep No More is a mystery/thriller but Iris has a way of throwing in a compelling human aspect that makes me love her books. I highly suggest checking out her work.

Audio Thoughts: Narrated by Elisabeth Rodgers (who does a fantastic job) this is a book/series that I would recommend on Audio. Elisabeth does a great job with pacing and narration of Eve and Kendra.

Final Thoughts: Sleep No More was an excellent addition to the series and I can't wait to see where it goes from here!

Eve and Joe are once again thrown into a myriad of murder and mayhem when it’s discovered that Eve’s not her mother Sandra’s only child. No the year before Eve was conceived Sandra had another daughter, Beth who’s politically and prominent paternal family literally bought the child from the arms of 14 year old Sandra. Unbeknown to Eve Sandra has kept up with this child, from her childhood in European boarding schools, to her nearly fatal skiing accident and now to her disappearance from the mental hospital she’s been in all the years since. Sandra wants Joe’s help to find Beth and although Eve has mixed feelings about the discovery and Sandra’s request, she and Joe go to find Beth. What they discover goes deep into the realm of criminal, psychopathic and even sociopathic behavior and the ultimate mastermind will shock everyone involved even the newly discovered sisters who’s encounter has been halting and disquieting. and who’s survival is questionable at the least.

Iris Johansen has entertained and terrified me for years with her Eve Duncan thrillers as well as her stand-a-lone and co-authored novels with her son Roy. She never disappoints me and in this one she shocks me to find yet another avenue for her protagonist Eve Duncan to travel when she throws an un-known sister into her plot. The storyline is as incredible as it is imaginative with twists and evil turns one after another as she speeds me along on her on her fast pace, nail-biting journey. Her tried and true characters are joined by an old friend from her last book co-authored with her son Roy along with new stars on each side of the morality fence. Even though this is not a romance novel the love scenes between Eve and Joe never cease to awe me in their intensity and honesty and above all their love for each other. If you’ve never read Iris, it’s definitely worth your while to do so and even though this is part of a many novel series it stands well on it’s own.
To you Ms. Johansen I say thank you for your wonderful stories, your great characters and your inventive plot lines. I can’t wait to see where you take me on our next adventure. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312651244, Hardcover)

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen comes a new thriller that will have Eve Duncan questioning everything she thought she knew about her family and her past

One woman held captive for decades…

Another one freed by the truth…

  

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan knows what it's like to be haunted by the past.  For years after her daughter Bonnie was stolen from her, she fought for closure.  But now as she's striving to begin anew, she can't shake the feeling that something terrible is about to happen—or maybe already has.  When her mother, Sandra, asks for help in finding a missing friend named Beth Avery, Eve is sure that she's hiding something.  It’s odd that Sandra would get involved at all, and the fact that she adamantly refuses to go to the police for help reinforces Eve’s suspicions that something is very wrong.

 

Eve learns that Beth has been locked away in a mental hospital for years, which makes it even harder to understand how she could have disappeared. As Sandra reluctantly reveals small pieces of the truth about Beth's identity, Eve is shocked to discover that their lives are strangely entwined, and Beth's disappearance now puts them all in grave danger.

 Desperate, Eve enlists a secret weapon to pick up Beth's trail:  rogue profiler, Kendra Michaels. With an uncanny ability to detect clues and solve puzzles, Kendra begins to uncover the bizarre circumstances of Beth's escape from what should have been the safety of her hospital room. Beth is on the run, and as her mind clears--detoxing from the drugs that have held her prisoner--she begins to see the threads of a twisted plot within the powerful Avery family, threatening to destroy Beth and anyone else who might jeopardize the high-stakes game that is already in play.
