Eve Duncan's relentless search for her kidnapped little girl, Bonnie, has led her to New Orleans and a man from both her and Bonnie's father's past. As she and her cohorts—longtime boyfriend, detective Joe Quinn, CIA agent Catherine Ling, and Bonnie's father—investigate the background of this man, they uncover psychiatric memory experimentation, government cover-ups, and bribery. Only when Eve's life is in mortal danger does a priest who knows the secrets of the man they are looking for agree to help. This third and final installment in the Eve Duncan trilogy (Eve; Quinn) drags on for about 100 pages too long and loses the success of its earlier parts with too many twists that are remedied too easily.
VERDICT Johansen's fans will be excited to have a definitive ending to Eve's story. However, this title lacks the punch of a work of suspense or a thriller. [See Prepub Alert, 4/25/11.]
