In #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author Johansen''s latest thriller, Eve Duncan''s adopted daughter Jane has been targeted by a mysterious cult, which has decided that she has only eight days to live. Martin''s Press.
From the Publisher:
It all begins with a painting called Guilt. Eve Duncan’s daughter, Jane, has no idea why she painted the portrait of the chilling face that now hangs in a Paris gallery. But those who belong to a powerful cult—one that dates back to the time of Christ—know both the face and the significance behind it…

They believe that Jane must die—when the moment is right, and not an instant before she leads them to an ancient treasure whose value and power are beyond price. But for now, they target those close to Jane, killing without mercy or conscience.

From Paris to the Scottish isles to the Holy Land, Jane finds herself in a desperate race against time to unravel the mystery surrounding her painting…and save her own life. Even with Eve’s help, can she possibly succeed before her time is up?

Annotation:
Could a piece of art really warrant punishment by death? Eve Duncan's adopted daughter, Jane Macguire, is thrilled to have an exhibition of her paintings at a Parisian gallery. But a group of members of an international cult that worships Judas, believes Jane has committed a blasphemous act with her painting, and they decide she will be their annual sacrifice, giving her only eight days to live. It is up to Eve Duncan to beat these fanatics at their own game. Iris Johansen keeps the suspense taught and the thrills coming in EIGHT DAYS TO LIVE.Could a piece of art really warrant punishment by death?

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.

Praise

"Fans can always count on Johansen to weave consistently excellent, complex thrillers with an unusual edge." (top pick) - Jill M. Smith 04/01/2010
