Booklist Review

In Johansen's latest Eve Duncan tale, following Mind Game (2017), a package containing a charred skull is ominously delivered to Eve's lake cottage, and as the renowned forensic sculptor begins creating the image of the person beneath the carnage, her six-year-old son, Michael, forms a preternaturally wise attachment to the woman he names Sylvie. Meanwhile, Eve's ward, Cara Delaney, is attacked in her Carnegie Tech dorm room, and Cara's close friend and protector, Jock Gavin, insists that she and her roommate, Darcy Nichols, leave for the safety of Eve's cottage. When Darcy walks in the door, it's as if Eve's reconstruction has come to life, for the woman on the worktable is none other than Darcy's twin, who is, in fact, named Sylvie. In Eve's world there is no such thing as coincidence; indeed, the brutal killer who murdered Darcy's sister and attacked Cara is intent on destroying both girls' families in a deranged quest for vengeance. Johansen is beloved for her strong female protagonists, and Cara and Darcy are worthy additions to this coterie of heroines.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2018 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

A box containing a severely burned skull, found in a car parked outside Eve Duncan's Georgia home, presents a tantalizing puzzle in bestseller Johansen's intriguing 22nd novel featuring the forensic sculptor (after 2017's Mind Game). Eve goes to work reconstructing the skull's owner, taking care to minimize its exposure to her inquisitive six-year-old son, Michael. When her 18-year-old ward, Cara Delaney, comes for a visit with her roommate, Darcy Nichols, Eve is struck by Darcy's incredible resemblance to the face of the reconstructed skull. Might Darcy have a twin? Meanwhile, Eve's husband, former Navy SEAL Joe Quinn, believes that a recent attack on Cara at her New York apartment might be connected to the burned skull. As Joe and Cara's longtime friend Jock Gavin try to keep Cara safe, they come to realize that the person who orchestrated Cara's assault could have sinister designs against Eve and Michael. Mother and son share eerie yet convincing ESP experiences along the twisty path to the truth. Fans of paranormal suspense will be rewarded. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency.
