As a former Navy seal turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose life would be defined by her dual desires to bring home her missing daughter and discover the truth behind her disappearance- no matter how devastating. With the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, they make a shocking discovery that sheds new light on young Bonnie's abduction and puts Quinn squarely in the cross hairs of danger. Eve's first love, John Gallo, a soldier supposedly killed in the line of duty, is very much alive- and very much a threat. Emotionally charged, with one shock after another, Quinn reveals the electricity of Joe and Eve's first connection, and how they fell in love in the midst of haunting tragedy. As their search takes them deeper and deeper into a web of murder and madness, Joe and Eve must confront their most primal fears...and test their resolve to uncover the ultimate bone-chilling truth.--Book jacket.… (more)

It was interesting reading this series of Eve, Quinn and Bonnie.
I read my first Eve Duncan book close to 20 years ago and was fascinated by the book, the author, the style.
Went back for more of the same on and off. No matter the mystery, no matter the characters , at the heart of it all is Bonnie. After a while the series was a bit repetitive so let it go for quite a while.
Now I started and finished this trilogy.
Here let me say that this is a trilogy. The books are not standalone and cannot be read that way.
Eve : This was interesting. Goes back to a different time. Eve's childhood, her past a totally different kind of storyline. An nice back to the roots book.
Quinn: Its a good progression of the trilogy. Keeping the suspense , thrill on.
Bonnie: Was a bit of an anticlimax to understand how and why it all happened and seemed quite pointless. ( )

I found it interesting that this was supposed to be Quinn's book. The first half of the book is the backstory of when Quinn first met Eve 9 years ago and how they eventually became a couple all while trying to find out who murdered Eve's daughter. The second half of the book was current day and mainly Catherine Ling and John Gallo - her first chasing him down because she thinks he is guilty of killing his daughter and then them working together to after a person they thinks knows who actually did.

I didn't really have a big issue with that as I really like John Gallo and want everyone to finally believe that he didnt kill his own daughter. It was just interesting that the majority of Quinn's presence in this book was all in the past.

We still dont know what really happened to Eve and John's daughter - we are left with another cliffhanger at the end of this book. Good thing is I know the next book will finally give us all those answers. ( )

A little heavy on the John Gallo and Catherine Ling story, but it did help progress the overall story line. Looking forward to the end with Bonnie. ( )

‘Quinn’ is tagged as the 2nd of a final trilogy; however, Iris Johansen’s ‘Eve Duncan’ series is the series this trilogy is based off of. If you want to be able to truly understand and appreciate this trilogy, I would highly recommend reading the Eve Duncan series first.

Iris Johansen’s ’Eve Duncan’ series has become a personal favorite of mine over the last decade. Personally fascinated by crime novels with interesting forensic tidbits at an early age, stumbling upon this series was quite a discovery for me. Eve is a strong and independent woman and is also a trained forensic sculptor who performs skull recreations to put a face to lost children to help bring their families peace. This is all in hope that one day she’ll find her daughter Bonnie who was kidnapped when she was 7 years old. ‘Quinn’ delves into the past when Eve and Quinn first met and he was first assigned to help find her daughter. It was very interesting to see the change in Eve and how she became a forensic sculptor; not simply out of the desire to find her own daughter, but out of the realization that she could do something to help the grieving families who hurt much like she does from the loss of her own child.

The story opens where ’Eve’ left off, with Joe Quinn in the ICU after being stabbed by Paul Black. In the hospital, Eve sees the ghost of her daughter Bonnie staring down at Quinn and thinks that he’s dying and she has come to take him to the afterlife. Catherine Ling has gone to track down John Gallo to get him to talk after Paul Black claimed John Gallo killed Bonnie. Only problem is John Gallo doesn’t remember him doing that; but doesn’t rule it out as a possibility considering his mental issues after being a POW in Korea.

The Good
My favorite bit was learning more about Eve and Joe’s past and when they first met each other. Knowing from reading the Eve Duncan series, Eve and Joe have a fierce love for each other and I loved being able to see how it all began.

The Bad
Okay, so after reading 13 books about Eve Duncan I think I’m a bit biased regarding my never-ending love for this series. With that said the one bad thing I do have to say this book resolved zero questions. Sure all sorts of new questions got raised, but was anything solved? Hmm… no not really. Which is really irritating. Sure us readers only have to wait 3 months before ’Bonnie’ comes out, but I still would’ve appreciated SOME answers.

As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how dark the shadows of the soul can turn. But when he met Eve Duncan a decade ago, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose torment has ultimately fueled her twin desires to bring her missing daughter home and reveal the truth of her disappearance, no matter how devastating it may be. Eve's fateful first love, John Gallo, seems to hold the key to the mystery of young Bonnie's fate. With Joe's life hanging in the balance at the hands of John, justice may never be served - unless CIA agent Catherine Ling, who owes her own child's life to Eve and Joe, can outsmart him at his own game.

I found this book to be very exciting and suspenseful in its own right, full of strong characters and well-written. but the book was not really my cup of tea. This is the second book in a trilogy, and I must say that because I hadn't read the first book it took me a while to realize what was going on. I give Quinn by Iris Johansen an A! ( )

Book description
Former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows how dark the shadows of the soul can turn. But when he met Eve Duncan a decade ago, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose torment was matched only by her dual desires to bring her missing daughter home and reveal the truth of her disappearance, no matter how devastating it may be. Eve's fateful first love, John Gallo, seems to hold the key to the mystery of young Bonnie's fate. With Joe's life hanging in the balance at the hands of Gallo, justice may never be served - unless CIA agent Catherine Ling, who owes her child's life to Eve and Joe, can outsmart Gallo at his own game. Emotionally charged with one shock after another, readers discover for the first time how Joe and Eve met and fell in love against a backdrop of haunting tragedy, gaining new insight into the characters they've known and become invested in for more than a decade. Soon to follow: the mind-blowing conclusion to Iris Johansen's trilogy: Bonnie.
