Wednesday Random Recommendation (12)

The Face of Deception:
An unidentified skull...

A trail of terrifying secrets...

And a woman whose talented hands could reveal the shocking truth...

As a forensic sculptor, Eve Duncan helps identify the dead from their skulls. Her own daughter murdered and her body never found, the job is Eve's way of coming to terms with her personal nightmare. But more terror lies ahead when she accepts work from billionaire John Logan. Beneath her gifted hands a face emerges from the skull he has given her to reconstruct—a face no one was ever meant to see. Now Eve is trapped in a frightening web of murder and deceit. Powerful enemies are determined to cover up the truth, and they will make certain that truth goes to the grave...even if Eve gets buried with it.

First published in 1998, Iris Johansen's The Face of Deception has the first appearance of Eve Duncan, a forensics sculptor looking for her daughter, Bonnie, who was kidnapped years ago. Eve Duncan becomes an integral character in Iris's books and each book is better than the last.

I invite and welcome anyone interested in participating to post their own "Random Recommendation" (original post) on their blog (and include a link back to this blog) and join in the fun! Some books might not be very recent reads, but I hope that just helps these (sometimes forgotten) books earn a spot on your own bookshelf!

  1. This was a good book. I love the whole Eve Duncan series. In fact, I really love anything Iris Johansen writes. I have been reading her since she was first published in the Loveswept line of romances.
