Having and keeping Bonnie was the best thing that Eve Duncan ever did. She is the reason Eve worked so hard at school, the reason that Eve's mother cleaned up her act. Seven years later the worst thing that could happen to a family did. Bonnie disappeared without a trace. One minute she was there and the next she was gone. Eve is now a world famous Forensic Sculptor. She mainly works with the skulls of children so that she can bring them home to their families. The time she is not working she spends it trying to find out what happened to her daughter and who took her. She was told that Bonnie's father was killed while in the army but then she finds out that he wasn't. At first they think that he had something to do with it but come to find out his did not. He joins in the hunt for his daughter's killer. Eve along with her lover Detective Joe Quinn, her friend CIA agent Catherine Ling and Bonnies father John Gallo are about to get the answers Eve has been seeking for years. In the past every time they think that they are close to finding the truth they hit another dead end.

This is the fourteenth installment in Ms. Johansen's Eve Duncan series, but it is also the third of the trilogy. After all these years of reading this series we finally find out what really happened to Bonnie. The twist and turns this story takes will make it hard to put this book down. You will be glad that Eve has finally found her daughter but sad to see Eve's story end. I have laughed and giggled out loud while reading some books but I can honestly say that this is the first one that had me crying. It was hard to keep a dry eye while reading the last few pages. When a story is told in such a way that it draws you in that way, it is a story everyone needs to read. I have this complete series and would not trade it for anything.

Eve found herself in the throes of a nightmare from which there was no escape. But a new Eve emerged: a woman who would use her remarkable talent as a forensic sculptor to help others find closure in the face of tragedy. Now with the help of her beloved Joe Quinn and CIA agent Catherine Ling, Eve has come closer than ever to the truth. But the deeper she digs, the more she realizes that Bonnie's father is a key player in solving this monstrous puzzle. And that Bonnie's disappearance was not as random as everyone had always believed . . .
