Synopsis:
A merciless killer on the hunt...an innocent child in his sights...a woman driven to the edge to stop him...

The killer knows Eve Duncan all too well. He knows the pain she feels for her murdered daughter, Bonnie, whose body has never been found. He knows that as one of the nation's top forensic sculptors she'll insist on identifying the nine skeletons unearthed on a bluff near Georgia's Talladega Falls. He knows she won't be able to resist the temptation of believing that one of those skeletons might be her daughter's. But that is only the beginning of the killer's sadistic game. He wants Eve one on one, and he'll use his ace in the hole to make sure she complies. And he won't stop playing until he claims the prize he wants most: Eve's life.

My Review:
I very quickly fell in love with the Eve Duncan series, and it didn't take much to make me feel like I couldn't live with more, more more of Iris Johansen! I loved The Killing Game just as much as The Face of Deception!

I love the fact that the story is totally different from Book 1, however, still weaves together quite nicely! I also love the fact that this story is so totally different from any other story that I've ever read in the things that happened. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the story and the total, HOLY CRAP moment when I really figured out what was going on! I thought for sure I had figured it out so many times before, only to find that i was TOTALLY wrong each time! Johansen masterfully wrote this story, keeping the reader on the edge of his or her seat throughout the whole novel! She has amazing writing abilities and is one of the best in her genre!

I was happy to learn more about Eve, and even Quinn! These are characters that I have come to know and love in this series, and look forward to continue to learn more and grow with them all throughout the remainder of the series! Eve is such an extraordinary strong woman, who isn't afraid to go after what she wants or to tell someone what she thinks! Quinn couldn't be more protective of Eve, as well as his friendship with her and that's admirable!

Overall, I loved this book! I couldn't stop reading once I started it and can't wait to get The Search and get started with it! I'm sure that as with the last two books, it'll have impeccable mystery and suspense, and I can't wait for the Oh Crap moment to hit me, yet again, and practically be slapped in the face with the finale, like I have been with each book before!
