This was another really good read in the Eve Duncan series, although I still find myself getting tired of Eve on occasion. I was happy to see a reappearance of Montalvo, was a little perked up by the fact that Joe Quinn grew a new backbone in this story, and was really excited by the part that Megan Blair played in the story (see PANDORA'S DAUGHTER).

I know that Eve needs to find the body of her daughter, Bonnie, for closure. I know that she's obsessed with this task. But, sometimes, you just want to smack her for letting it ruin so many other aspects of her life.

Many times throughout QUICKSAND I had to wonder what either Joe or Montalvo see in this woman -- I think she'd drive me batty. No matter what happens in the long run, though, I hope to see more of a paranormal aspect to the storyline: and it seems that there will be, what with the way the story ends.

If you're a follower of the Eve Duncan series, you'll want to read this one. It's good overall, and you can always hope that Montalvo comes to his senses and looks for a new woman to obsess over soon.

I really liked this book. To me it never reached a point where I thought I knew where it was going. Kept me guessing. Definitely worth the credit to get.

This book is about Eve Duncan. She lost her only child to a killer years ago. She is a
forensic sculptor, she spends her life trying to bring all missing children home to their family. She is obsessed with finding her daughters' remains some day.

A ruthless mass murder has learned how to horrify her and taunts' Eve about what happened to her little girl.

This book is brilliantly written.

Iris Johansen tells a great story. Once again Eve Duncan is embroiled in a deperate search to bring home Bonnie. The book is hard to put down. I don't really like the supernatural aspect. But it is still a great story. I only wish we were able to see into the mind of the villain a little more, if only to see how he became so evil.
