Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Having injected vampires into 2009's Blood Game, the previous Eve Duncan forensics thriller, bestseller Johansen introduces cryptotheology—the madeup religious stuff of Dan Brown—into this equally outlandish sequel. When Jane MacGuire, Eve's adopted daughter, exhibits her paintings at a Paris gallery, one of Jane's pieces, a creepy portrait titled Guilt, prompts a charge of blasphemy from a dangerous cult. Nailing the dead body of one of Jane's friends to a cross shows the cult members mean business. Last seen in 2006's Killer Dreams, John MacDuff and Jock Gavin show up at Jane's door to protect her. Later Seth Caleb, the mysterious is-he-or-isn't-he vampire from Blood Game, joins the team. An action-packed search to uncover Jane's link to the cult and find a priceless religious artifact takes Jane and company across Europe—a journey that allows little focus on Eve and even less on her trademark forensic sculpting. 500,000 first printing. (Apr.)

From Booklist

Although billed as an Eve Duncan Forensics Thriller, neither Eve nor forensics plays a big part in Johansen’s latest. Instead the focus is on Eve’s adopted daughter, Jane MacGuire, who has a successful art show at a Parisian gallery. But a painting titled Guilt has drawn some unwanted attention: the religious cult Sang Noir wants Jane dead. When the cult starts going after those closest to Jane, she turns to two strong, dangerous men: Jock, a trained assassin, and Seth, a hunter with psychic powers. Friction ensues between these two strapping guys as they fight to protect the globe-trotting Jane while she travels from Paris to Switzerland to Jerusalem in an attempt to find out why Sang Noir is so determined to kill her. She’s fighting an intense attraction to Caleb, even as she disapproves of his methods of extracting information, and when Eve’s life hangs in the balance, Jane finds herself crossing lines she never thought she would. Readers interested in hard forensic science will want to look elsewhere, but those receptive to paranormal abilities and religious mysteries will find much to enjoy in this page-turner. --Kristine Huntley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My daughter's the Eve Duncan addict, but here is my take on this one:

This one's more about Eve's adopted daughter, Jane - but that's just fine. It has shades of Dan Brown's works, because there are distinct "quasi-religious" elements (and a cult, Sang Noir - Black Blood!) and paranormal aspects tangled up in the plot and the mystery (not a lot of forensics, either...)

You'll travel to interesting ports of call during the course of this novel - and its pace is good throughout. There's just enough tension between Jock and Seth to keep the pages turning, and Jane herself faces some decisions that add to the thrill.

All in all, a good ride, if not quite in the more familiar Eve Duncan/forensics mode.

This book is a good, fast read with a rapidly moving plot, interesting characters, and a pair of truly evil villains. If it were by just about anyone else, it would get 4 stars from me.

However, there is little Eve and even less forensics. We see nothing of her work with the skulls of missing children. We see almost no Joe. I would have been happier if we had seen more of Eve in her workshop and another child identified. I do like Jane, Lina, Jock, and Seth very much. I wish I had all of them on my side if I ever needed them.

However, I really believe that Iris Johansen's villains are getting darker, more evil, and more twisted. I'd like to see her heroine(s) up against a chess player of an opponent, one who kills only when he/she feels it is necessary and kills quickly and as painlessly as possible. I'd like to see fewer psychic solutions and more cerebral ones. I feel as if we are slowly sinking into deep mire. Please, Iris, give us something that doesn't leave me feeling I need a shower when I'm done reading.

I really enjoyed Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan thrillers for a long time. But then it just got to the point where I think to myself, how many serial killers can one woman go through. And it's bad enough that Eve gets her share but come on, Jane too. It's gotten beyond ridiculous. I really wanted to enjoy this book. I really would like to see that day that Eve finds her daughter's body. But I realized with this book, I just couldn't do it anymore. I didn't even make it 1/2 way through. I think it's time Johansen wound this series up and came up with something new. But then again, as long as she's making money off of it, I'm sure the series will continue. Can't exactly blame her. But I won't be recommending this book either.

I have always enjoyed Iris Johansen's books and the Eve Duncan books are very good. My only problem is with the main character, Eve, and her adopted daughter, Jane. For some reason this author seems to feel that in order to be shown as a strong woman, you have to be rude as hell and a total bitch. So we are to believe that these two woman who are always surrounded by very strong, professional, capable men have to be so bossy and rude that these same men couldn't function without them. I like a strong character and assertive women but it can be done in a way that the woman is appealing and feminine as well. In this novel, Jane just comes across as a woman you would really like to see become the sacrifice she is trying to avoid being. There is nothing appealing about her, no saving grace. In the real world she would be considered repulsive in the extreme. Iris has written some very good characters and I just don't get where she thinks she is going with Eve and Jane. She has tamed Eve down a bit but now we have to suffer through Jane. The interesting, involved stories keep me coming back and the fantastic men in the novels. They are the true stars of the stories, you just kind of have to suffer through the insufferable Eve and Jane.

What is it with the rude women? About half way into the book, I wanted my new fave hero Seth to pack it up and leave as Jane who called HIM to help; spent the entire time disapproving of the way he handled everything. Come on, why on earth would any guy stick around when the gal acts like she's doing him a FAVOR by allowing him to help HER???

As with Eve, I have yet to figure out why the men seem to fall all over Jane.

Come to think of it, the other female character, Lena, the ex-Moslem is also a witch. I would think after all she had gone thru, she would have been a little nicer to other women and men who treat her well.

The storyline is interesting and the men are sexy and darkly exciting, but PLEASE Iris, can we get some women that are likeable?

Iris Johansen always write a good thriller but I was very disappointed that EIGHT DAYS TO LIVE is not an Eve Duncan book - instead it is a Jane McGuire book. I've actually only read the first 100 pages. So far it is a good read, but without Eve Duncan as the central character, I must admit, I am already losing interest. If the next 50 pages don't grab my attention, I won't hesitate to set it aside.

One thing for certain, next time I'll check the inside cover to be sure my Eve Duncan book is about Eve Duncan.

I love Iris Johansen books since her Loveswept days and this book was no exception. I was glad the story was about Jane, she needed her own book. I liked that she hooked her up with Caleb even though I liked Mark and MacDuff. The story line was very good and kept me hooked for the whole story. Excellent book. I hope she does Lina and Jock's stories.
