Protecting 11-year-old Cara Castino remains Eve Duncan’s highest priority in bestseller Johansen’s thrilling 20th novel featuring the Atlanta-based forensic sculptor (after Hide Away), the conclusion of a trilogy within the longer series that began with Shadow Play. Natalie Castino, Cara’s sociopathic mother, succeeds in abducting the girl from her hiding place in the Scottish Highlands and taking her to Moscow, where Natalie’s father lives. Eve fears that Cara might meet the same fate as the girl’s twin sister, Jenny, for whose death Natalie was responsible. In Russia, Eve joins forces with Cara’s special friend from the Highlands, Jock Gavin, in an effort to rescue Cara. Eve’s longtime love, former FBI agent Joe Quinn, lends support, but nothing goes as smoothly as it should, and Eve soon finds herself fighting for her life and the life of her unborn child. Full of mysticism and mystery, this fast-paced novel is sure to appeal to all fans of romantic suspense. Agent: Andrea Cirillo, Jane Rotrosen Agency. (July)
