From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Killer Dreams comes a terrifying new thriller that will leave you guessing–and gasping. The suspense begins with a phone call that leads forensic sculptor Eve Duncan to the trail of a killer even killers fear to face. Eve Duncan has turned down the job twice already. Her skill and devotion in identifying murder victims and helping bring their killers to justice may be world-renowned. But Eve works exclusively for law enforcement and the families of the innocent, and the man on the other end of the phone is many things–none of them law-abiding or innocent. One of the world's most wanted men, little is really known about Luis Montalvo except that he is extraordinarily dangerous and that he never takes no for an answer. Now he wants Eve's help in the worst way. For he believes they have something in common–and he's about to prove it with a grisly warning. Eve will leave everything and everyone behind, even the man she trusts and loves the most, to travel to the Colombian jungle to identify the skull he has recovered. She has agreed to this devil's bargain to save an innocent family, but also for a reason she can't admit to anyone. For the man in the jungle has promised to be able to give Eve what she wants most of all–the key to unlocking the darkest and most painful mystery of her past. But as she gets closer to identifying the skull, she finds herself caught between two ruthless killers with no way out. Now, with everything on the line, Eve Duncan must make the most chilling choice of all. And if she's wrong…she's dead.

Professional reviews

"Jennifer Van Dyck's breathy, soothing voice embodies Eve Duncan, a forensic sculptor who reconstructs the faces of crime victims from unidentified skulls. Van Dyck creates a complex Eve, a woman with weaknesses as well as strengths, a woman who is not immune to the raw sex appeal of a devious criminal kingpin who needs her help. If Eve reconstructs a skull belonging to his late wife, Luis Montalvo promises to help her find the body and the killer of her murdered daughter. Unable to resist the bait, Eve finds herself deep in the Colombian jungle, surrounded by illegal weapons deals, drugs, feuding criminals, murder, and torture. Johansen creates another crisp thriller, and Van Dyck's performance will satisfy fans. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
