From the Publisher:
A past she thought buried...a murder she was driven to solve...

Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan has been summoned to Baton Rouge by a high-ranking government official to identify the remains of an unknown murder victim. Eve wants nothing to do with the project. She has finally found peace from her own tragic past, living a quiet life with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and her adopted daughter, Jane. Then a stunning series of seemingly unrelated events turns Eve’s new world upside down.

A killer so deceptive, he leaves nothing behind but his victims...

Now, in a special government facility, she takes on the project of identifying the victim’s skeleton. But she hasn’t even begun when the first death occurs. Someone totally ruthless, someone who can strike anywhere at any time and with seeming immunity, is determined to put a halt to her work, her life, and the lives of those she loves. Eve has stumbled onto a chilling conspiracy. There is only one person who can give her the devastating truth...and he is already dead.
Annotation:
Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan is hired by a government official to reconstruct the identity of an unknown corpse. Soon, Duncan realizes that she has become a pawn in a very dangerous game.
Author Bio
Iris Johansen
Known particularly for her novels of suspense, Iris Johansen has seen dozens of her books appear on the bestseller lists. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Johansen was a voracious reader from an early age. Later, raising two children as a single mother, she worked as an airline reservations clerk and wrote in whatever free time she could eke out of her busy schedule. She sometimes arrived at the airport at five in the morning, so that she could have a quiet hour to herself, and she often wrote in the car while waiting for her son and daughter to finish their afterschool activities. (Her son, Roy, is now a screenwriter and has also collaborated with his mother on several novels.) After both had left for college, Johansen quit her job to try her hand at writing full-time. "I was just as voracious a writer as I was a reader," she recalled to one journalist. She began her career by penning romances--many of them for Bantam's "Loveswept" line--and soon became a familiar name to fans of the genre. In 1996, she branched out into crime fiction, publishing THE UGLY DUCKLING, about the victim of a brutal assault who is determined to get revenge on her attacker. Johansen has since become known for her recurring characters, and among the most popular of these is Eve Duncan, a forensic sculptor who creates likenesses based on remains too decomposed to be recognizable. Eve, who is haunted by the murder of her own young daughter, made her first appearance in FACE OF DECEPTION (1998). "[The idea] came from seeing a documentary on the Discovery Channel," Johansen has explained. "I had never heard of a forensic sculptor before. I thought ?What if?' A lot of great stories have come from ?What if?'" IRIS JOHANSEN'S THE KILLING GAME, a film based on one of the Eve Duncan books, aired on Lifetime television in 2011.
