book synopsis:

Eve Duncan is the most sought-after artist in the field of forensic sculpting. Dedicated to her work ever since her daughter Bonnie was taken and killed at the age of seven, Eve feels a sense of duty to those whose lives were lost and whose bones are now in her hands. When a sheriff in California contacts her with a request for help on the reconstruction of the skull of a nine-year-old girl whose body has been buried for eight years, his intensity and investment in the case puzzle her. But when the ghost of the girl begins communicating with her, Eve finds herself wrapped up in the case more intensely than she could have ever imagined. Not since Bonnie has Eve had such an experience, and suddenly she finds herself determined to solve the murder and help the little girl find peace. Except that the killer is still out there, and he knows Eve is on the case. And he won’t rest until anything and anyone that could reveal his identity is eliminated


what did I think of the cover: I love it, there's something about the cover that just pulled me in to it that made mw what to pick up the book.


What did I think of the main characters: I instantly felled in love with Eve Duncan  and her boyfriend  Joe Quinn, loved how it seemed to me that they know what each other was thinking, and how no matter what happened in this story they was there for each other.


What did I think of the story:

First I want to say thinks to Iris Johansen  and her publishers as well to  my Goodreads group Mysteries & Crime Thrillers, and to their blog MCT , for letting me request an ACR of this great book in a change for my honest opinion. So with that said let's get on to what I thought: What can I say OMG I loved it even though its the first time I've ever read any thing by Iris Johansen and even though this is book 19 of the Eve Duncan series ,I'm still glad that I decided to pick it up, because for a while now I've be think about picking up this series but at the same time I was also afraid that I might not like it, but when I found out that my goodreads group Mysteries & Crime Thrillers had copies of this ARC to request I went head and requested it, and once again I have to say that I'm glad I did, there was something about this story that had me form the start, it just kept pulling me into the story, loved how it has a touch of the supernatural that made parts of the story feel unearthly, but that's just some of the stuff that kept me coming back to it, because I had to find out what happen, who killed the little girl and why, and I loved reading about Eve's job, because this is the first book I've read that the main character worked in the field of forensic sculpting and that even kept me coming back for more, it made everything more real .What can I say everything about this book had my hooked from the star, it just wouldn't let me stop reading, it was, awesome, amazing, and stunning at the same time, and when a book it like that it keeps me coming back for more of that series, which means as soon I can I'll be picking up book one to this really great series.
