Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: A journalist shows up on Eve Duncan's doorstep with a plea for help. Jill Cassidy has just come from a small African village with a heart wrenching story: half the villagers--many of them children--have been killed in a horrific attack by guerrilla soldiers, the bodies burned beyond recognition. Now, the families desperately need Eve's help to get closure and begin to heal. But when Eve arrives in the remote jungle, she begins to suspect that Jill's plea may have been a cover story for a deeper, more sinister plot. Isolated and unsure who she can trust, Eve finds herself stranded in an unstable country where violence threatens to break out again at any moment and with only her own instincts to rely on if she hopes to get home to her family alive.

    After formidable journalist Jill Cassidy is brutally assaulted by Nils Varak, a cold-blooded mercenary at the center of a tribal conflict in the African nation Maldara, she coerces renowned forensic sculptor Eve Duncan into returning with her to the jungle village whose children have been gruesomely murdered by Varak and his henchmen. Duncan is there ostensibly to recreate the images of the dead to bring peace to their parents. In reality, Duncan and, inevitably, her husband, ex-U.S. Navy SEAL and Atlanta detective Joe Quinn, are there to help Cassidy and CIA operative Jed Novak prove definitively that Varak had not been subsequently killed in a helicopter crash, as is widely believed. They find themselves in a deadly power struggle between Maldara's charismatic but villainous leader, Zahra Kiyani, and the very-much-alive Varak, the target of which is a treasure dating back to the reign of Cleopatra. Propelled by a muscular narrative and elaborate subplots, Johansen's (Dark Tribute, 2019) latest complex Eve Duncan thriller reliably pivots on the cerebral battle of wills among its robust characters.
