The stakes are raised even higher in HUNTING EVE as Eve battles the man who is holding her prisoner. Secrets about why Eve has been targeted come into the light, bringing Eve even closer to danger. With its cliffhanger ending, HUNTING EVE sets up perfectly for the finale, SILENCING EVE.
Johansen’s scattered 16th novel featuring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, the middle part of a trilogy, picks up where its predecessor, Taking Eve, left off. Eve has escaped from her kidnapper, madman Jim Doane, at least temporarily. While Doane hunts for her in the rough wilderness of Colorado’s Rio Grande Forest, others are seeking her whereabouts and planning her rescue and/or Doane’s capture. Characters with special talents include Kendra Michaels, whose vision is particularly acute; Seth Caleb, who can manipulate the flow of other people’s blood; Margaret Douglas, who can read animals’ thoughts; and assassin Lee Zander, who may or may not be Eve’s father. Eventually, Eve’s lover, Atlanta police officer Joe Quinn; wounded friend Jane MacGuire; and CIA agent Venable converge on Doane’s remote hideaway for a cliffhanger ending. Fans of paranormal romantic suspense will eagerly look forward to the conclusion, Silencing Eve.
