This is the third book in the trilogy staring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan. This book starts off where the last book in the series left off. Cara has been kidnapped by her biological Mother (I know, right? but seriously you need to read the previous books to learn why this is not such a good things). Eve, Joe Quinn and all the usual suspects are trying to save Cara reunite her with Eve and Joe.

Like the previous books, there is lots of action and Eve, although pregnant, is in the thick of it. Speaking of being pregnant, Eve’s unborn child is communicating with her. As other books in the series there is a little paranormal elements going on here.

Honestly, the book was good not great. I was not left on the edge of my seat wanting more. I was waiting for the book to be over to find out just how it would all end. This did not blow me away. I don’t think I will be reading more in the Eve Duncan series. I just don’t feel connected to her characters. The writing is good but nothing grabbed me.

Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn are in danger again. When will these two have a normal life? In this installment, Eve and Joe are attempting to protect Cara Delaney, a young violin player whose life is in mortal danger (is there ever any other kind of danger?). They travel to Scotland where Eve’s adopted daughter is currently looking for hidden treasure (is there any other kind?). There they have to stay smarter than those hunting Cara and Eve.

For me, this book was okay not great. I didn’t love it and I didn’t hate it either. There is some suspense, but you know who the bad guys are from the start. It wasn’t a nail biter or a page turner for me. There was some suspense but I found it to be minimal. I think die hard Johansen fans will enjoy this book. I find I like a little more mystery.
