FBI psychologist Daniel Clark is obsessed with capturing an elusive serial killer known only as Eve. When Daniel is shot by Eve, his resuscitation 20 minutes later leaves him with no memory of his killer's face, and he attempts to recall the memory by reliving his near-death experience. At the same time, the terrible and haunting story of who Eve is and how he became a killer is told in disturbing snippets throughout the novel. This supernatural thriller is both a character study and a highly charged suspense drama. Themes of exorcism and child abuse may upset sensitive readers, but this title will appeal to general thriller enthusiasts. Highly recommended for Spanish-language suspense collections. [LJ 4/1/08]
