Seducing an Angel 5. I know as the reader we know but, come on.. I mean come on this man is a stranger to her - give me a break. Maybe I'm in a bad mood or maybe I just have a lot of other books I'd rather read but, I will not be finishing this one. Jun 02, Cheryl rated it it was amazing. This is the first book with forensic sculpter, Eve Duncan. Wow, what a tough lady. This woman could truly be a roll model for young women once they've finished with the Nancy Drew series.
I loved the book. I'm listening to another by Iris Johansen concurrently, almost through with that one, too. I've also ordered another one of hers from the library.

Eve grew up as a bastard child of a stoned mother. Her child was also a bastard, but led the way to both Eve and her mother getting their acts togeth This is the first book with forensic sculpter, Eve Duncan. Her child was also a bastard, but led the way to both Eve and her mother getting their acts together. The daughter, Bonnie, was kidnapped and persumed killed.
Eve's goal in life is to bring her daughter's bones home. She calls these missing children the lost ones. Bonnie appears to her mother. Now that you've heard a little about Eve, please realize that this thread is just background for an extremely exciting mystery series. Jun 03, thadine rated it it was ok. I would have given this book a higher rating, except that about two thirds of the way in, all the characters were struck with a bout of stupidity. Now, there was a fair bit of stupidity earlier on, but it reached epic proportions and I was no longer able to overlook it.
The ending was pretty good, but the intelligence shown there just couldn't make up for all the silliness that happened before that. Some sore points for me: When Eve sees that her lab has been vandalised with dead cat and rat s I would have given this book a higher rating, except that about two thirds of the way in, all the characters were struck with a bout of stupidity. When Eve sees that her lab has been vandalised with dead cat and rat splattered all over the place, she goes in and starts cleaning up BEFORE calling the police.
No one seems to find this behaviour odd. The good guys all assume the bad guys have only got one killer employed. Luckily, they were correct, but really, that's a massive assumption to make considering we are dealing with extremely wealthy and influential people. Logan can hire security teams to look after Margaret and Sandra, but not to look after Eve or Gary. No, these two have to be left on their own whilst a killer is on the loose hunting them down. There was absolutely no reason to think that anyone was safe. I could go on, but there isn't much to say except that the characters, and especially Eve, are morons.
The excuse is that everyone is becoming more and more emotional and stressed as the book progresses, but it really got ridiculous.
Dec 02, Jenny rated it really liked it Shelves: Readers of Face of Deception are going to be so surprised when they finally realise what is happening with the story. Unusually that the two of the main characters were friends not lovers. The characters acted like brother and sisters accept Joe's wife who was upset with the situations and tried to break Eva and Joe up.
I did not like the ending of Face of Deception it left everything up in the air and asking questions for example what happen to John Logan! If you like to read a book with a lot of twists and turns I recommend this book. Mar 28, Lyn rated it it was amazing. I first read Iris's books when she was doing romances, liked her style particularly a series based in the West. However, this series about the forensic anthropologist trying to find her kidnapped daughter's body really gets to me.
I love the way Iris has shown her Eve Duncan outgrowing her background to develop her potential, and becoming passionate about bringing all murdered children 'home' by developing the faces that go with the skulls. Apr 25, Skye rated it it was amazing Shelves: Started the second book the moment I finished the last page. View all 3 comments. Jan 21, Bojana Zdravkovic rated it liked it. Johansen sure loves the word 'sardonically'. Dec 28, Xan rated it liked it. I very much wanted to give this book 4 stars The storyline was very good, and got me through the book.
Eve is hired to put a face on a skull, and the revelations throughout the book keep the surprises and suspense going up until the end. I'd give the storyline a 4, easily. However, this is the 3rd "Eve Duncan" book I've read, and I have to give the characters a I want to like Eve, but she is unbelievably annoying. Perhaps it's Johansen's experience I very much wanted to give this book 4 stars Perhaps it's Johansen's experience with writing romance novels which I hate, btw , but for the main character of a series of books, whose basically supposed to be the hero, she comes off constantly as pathetic and weak, and always needing a man to come in and take care of her.
And her responses to people are more like those of a child, pushing people away and doing the exact opposite of what they ask her, just to spite them, even if it's not the action that makes sense. They won't get uninvolved when told by someone else, yet they get frustrated and annoyed when others they ask do exactly the same thing It's like reading about a bunch of children in adult bodies and dangerous adult situations.
It's amazing any of them survives, since they're constantly sabotaging themselves. I found myself consistently wanting to reach into the books and strangle them all, they're that annoying. Only the storyline got me through, and I find myself conflicted. Johansen comes up with great stories and ongoing suspense, so I'd love to read the rest of the books in the series All the complaining about the characters aside, I will say that the story itself made this book worth reading.
Jul 12, Chris rated it really liked it. As with most books, I tend to start reading them for a reason. So I figure that the author has to be doing something good, right? As there are that many authors doing collections of books, I decided to quickly double check to see what was the book that started the authors collection and this was it.
Quickie Review So, what can I say about this book? I really loved the main character and the surrounding group, yet the story of Eve Duncan is one of painful struggle just to live from day-to-day which really lends itself to the pace of this story. Going off this book, I can see why there are now a massive collection of books in the series. For a full review, read it on my site here: Nov 06, Carmen rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I thought Logan was a creep and it drove me up the wall that Johansen was trying to make him and Eve romantically entangled.
And I was furious when Logan and Joe have that secret meeting where they decide who gets to sleep with Eve and when.
Bodies Of Deception The Final Fury Of The Dark Angel Series
This is a book where the female protagonist keeps proclaiming that she's not a victim but keeps proving that she is one. May 27, Ellenjsmellen rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this one. Apr 05, Petula Darling rated it did not like it Shelves: The premise was ridiculous, the main character was grating and the dialog was clunky. I found my next series to follow! How did I wait this long? Feb 04, Gina rated it did not like it. This is a review for this book along with the second of the series, The Killing Game. I rated The Killing Game 2 stars as it is a little better.
I read the first few books of Johansen's Eve Duncan series several years ago close to when each was first released, late 90s. I don't know that either made much of an impression except that I remembered I thought it had an interesting premise - a woman becomes a forensic sculptor years after h This is a review for this book along with the second of the series, The Killing Game. I don't know that either made much of an impression except that I remembered I thought it had an interesting premise - a woman becomes a forensic sculptor years after her young daughter, Bonnie, is murdered and the body is never found.
Two things happened recently that made me consider these again: To my knowledge a movie of book 1 hasn't been made. As I own both books 1 and 2, I decided to give them a re-read to see if I wanted to continue. Book 1 is a hot mess. There are so many crazy, implausible parts to it I think the addition of a unicorn might make it more believable. The Killing Game is significantly better but still had way too many TSTL moments combined with unlikely scenarios for me to enjoy it. My biggest issue with both is the way Eve is written. I get annoyed with an author when in order to make her lead female character a "strong woman" she writes her as a a petulant, foot stomping, I must get my way toddler.
As the reader, I'm predisposed to like Eve - a women who works tirelessly to put names and faces to lost children in hopes of someday finding her daughter's body. So it took some effort on Johansen's part to make me dislike Eve as much as I did.

And don't get me started on the men in her life I now remember why I didn't continue with this series. Aug 31, Catnip Antonija rated it it was ok. It was interesting and unusual up to a half way into the book. Then the story started to stall and it became almost You knew what was going to happen next and I started to lose interest. Eve is your typical troubled hero with a whole boat of luggage in her past. She meets the mysterious, brooding millionaire, Logan. Yes, he is manipulative, what a shocker, and yes, she is stubborn as a mule, again-what a shocker!
They make a tiring duo who fights every time they talk and outcomes It was interesting and unusual up to a half way into the book. They make a tiring duo who fights every time they talk and outcomes of their fights are quite predictable.
In comes Joe, the big hero from Eve's past because what is a good mystery without a love triangle, except Joe the ass got married because Premise of the story was very promising but as I already said, I grew tired of it an had to take breaks every half an hour or less.
