I have read and loved every book by Iris Johansen and can honestly say I felt cheated by this book. 200 pages of intro before any action, then to have to purchase another book (probably 200 pages) just to get to the action part. These three books should have been incorporated into one. I am very disappointed and based on the first book will probably not purchase book 2 or 3. $16 for an e-book containing 200 pages was certainly not worth it..especially since there was very little "suspense."

Halfway through this book I had almost decided not to finish it, but I had promised it to my daughter, so I soldiered on to the end. There are so many things about this book that I dislike that I hardly know where to begin.

First of all, it is not complete but the first of yet another trilogy. I hate this, especially when months will go by before the next two are released. I dislike this, but I could have lived with it. This is my minor quibble.

Second and most important, the villains are getting darker and darker. Every time I finish one of her books, I feel the need to take a bath. Kevin is like the Son of Satan and his father Doane, who may once have been a good, decent man, has been seduced to the dark side by his evil offspring to the point where he has procured young children to provide his son "release" by ravishing and murdering them. In my reviews of the last several Eve Duncan books, I have asked for a villain like a Thomas Crown or a Neal Caffrey or the Leverage crew, who steals from the rich and/or the bad guys but does not do any physical harm to anyone. Instead, they have become worse and worse.

Third, I am sick and tired of everyone's obsession with Eve. She is the center of the universe for Joe and Jane as well. They don't just love her--they worship her. Nothing matters to either of them but Eve; Venable's men who are in danger or have died do not really concern them at all, only Eve. The one thing I don't like about J.D. Robb's Eve Dallas books is that Roarke, Eve's husband, is too perfect. Joe & Jane see Eve the same way. Jane is a young woman who should focus on her own life and her two suitors. Instead it's "Eve, Eve, Eve!

I have read the entire Eve Duncan catalog. When I reached the "conclusion" of this book, I was stunned. While a new protagonist and a few antagonists are introduced, the book moves very slowly and it is full of fluff - re-statement and re-hashing of character development and story line - and then it abruptly stops. When I came back to Amazon to figure out the deal, I saw that I could buy segment 2 in July and segment 3 (is that really the last or is there a 4,5,6?) in October. Not me, for me Eve Duncan went off the cliff. The end.

One of the reasons I enjoy reading so much more than watching TV is the opportunity to enjoy a story from beginning to end without the artificial construct of a cliff hanger. But that's exactly what this book does to the reader - leaves them hanging in mid-air. Knowing Eve had finally found Bonnie, I had hoped for a new thread, and this book almost hinted at one, but did not provide any real development of the concept - I guess I'd have to buy parts 2,3,4,5,6 to get that satisfaction along with the conclusion of this particular story line. This small piece of the next stage of Eve's world would have been better written, introduced, and priced as a short story.

Not only do I expect "value," in a book - a reasonable price for an engaging, deeply-developed, and well-written story - I expect respect and fair treatment from the author. I read series because I enjoy the continued characters, themes, and threads, but I don't expect to come to the end of a book and be left holding a handful of loose ends with no satisfactory progress for those characters, themes and threads.

Other series writers don't do this to their readers.

I hate it when authors don't finish the story in one book, I don't want to wait months to find out what happens to eve. I am a fan of the series but after this am disgusted enough that I probably will not buy the next one or anymore.

I have been an Iris Johansen fan for a long time and managed to hang in there until the Bonnie saga was complete. However, this is probably my last "Eve" book. I have to agree with an earlier reviewer - Joe and Jane's obsessive focus on Eve and total disregard for anyone and everyone else is just way over the top. I'll admit that I've never been a fan of Joe's constant caveman chest beating, but his non-stop threats and bluster in this book were completely ridiculous. Jane is also quickly becoming entirely unlikeable as a character. I would be disappointed that the book was little more than an expensive set-up for the next two books, but I'm not interested enough to even find out how the story ends (because we all know how it will end when it comes right down to it) so that's a moot point.
