An evil monster plagues Eve and her family, but will help from strange outsiders be enough to stop it?

As always, a page-turning thriller in the Eve Duncan series. How does this woman get in so much trouble? Everyone seems to have it out for her and her family and they meet peril head on in this book as well. Wonderful beach read and well worth reading. Recommend it! ( )

I've been reading Iris for over 20 years, OMG. The Eve Duncan series uses a bit of supernatural, or in this case a lot more supernatural. Joe touched Megan and now he can talk to ghosts. Nancy Jo is telling him about her murder and helping him with his investigation. Joe just has to believe that she's real and he's not crazy before the real crazy can hurt the people he loves. ( )

This was my first foray into Iris Johansen's writing. Based on some other reviews I'm reading, this was maybe not her best. I would hope that to be the case, because I honestly wasn't all that impressed. As far as thrillers go, I found the plotline mediocre. The whole psychic/ghost element was farfetched and not very believable, not to mention inconsistent. But my biggest pet peeve on this one was the overuse of the word "stiffened". As in "Eve stiffened....", "Joe stiffened....", "Jane stiffened...." I must've heard that phrase at least 10 or more times while listening to this audiobook. A thesaurus might have been helpful. Or a better editor. ( )

I love Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series, but Blood Game was a little disappointing for me. The book had quite a few editing errors, and one major continuity error with Megan's Uncles name. In Quicksand he had one name, but in this book he had a different name. Not what I was expecting from a best selling author. ( )

Book description
Eve Duncan returns in a thriller that pits her against the most evil mind she has ever encountered: a ruthless killer who taunts her with his every move...and who has a special affinity for blood. When a Georgia senator's daughter is found murdered, and her body drained of blood, Eve Duncan is drawn into the web of Kevin Jelak - a serial murderer who is on Eve's short list of killers who might know something about her missing daughter Bonnie. When a goblet of blood is found in Eve's refrigerator, she knows the taunting is over...and the games have begun. As Eve and Jelak engage in a dance of death, Eve must call upon those she loves and trusts the most...even if it means bringing them into the game as well.
To Whet A Killer's Appetite

From Which There May Be No Escape
Eve believes this psychotic mind holds the answers to the questions that have tormented her for years. But like a spider hunting its prey, he is waiting for the perfect moment to strike -w hen Eve least expects it. And when she has the most to lose ...
