I have been reading Eve Duncan series from the very beginning and it's become one of my favorites but lately...........I can't understand where the author is taking the series to next!! Night and Day is the 21st book in the series and the 3rd in some kind of trilogy that deals with Eve and the young girl, Cara. I debated reading this book after the disappointing previous two books... https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... and https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2... but I can't resist Eve Duncan. No, No, No! Now we have the Russian mafia....yes, the Colombian drug cartel has been "bumped" off by some evil beings - running around trying to "bump" off Eve and her family and friends!!! Hell, can we give poor Eve a break and get her to have some fun and good times!!!! Anyway - Jane is on and off with Caleb..........can we get these two to make up their bloody minds for a change!!! Carla, the 11 year old but an old soul is still trying to save everyone around her.........are you sure that she's only 11??? Because let me tell you, I haven't met any 11 year old like her........and PLEASE how many times do we have to be told that everyone and I mean everyone wants to SAVE and PROTECT Eve!!!!! Give me a break!!! The dialogue is so boring and repetitive rules here again...let's rehash the entire two books here again please!!!! Ms Johansen, can you get Eve back to working with her skulls and getting closure for dead people instead of dealing with all this hocus pocus!!!!! And yes, after the HUGE cliffhanger here.............I see no other option but to read book #22!!!! So here I am...going to wait patiently for Eve and Joe's next ADVENTURE!!!

    Night and Day is the twenty first book in the series by Iris Johansen featuring the character Eve Duncan. This particular story line though began in book nineteen and has been it's own little trilogy within the overall series so I won't give any details directly about this story so I don't spoil it for anyone at this point but just a brief glimpse at the overall plot involved in all three books. This third of the trilogy picks up right at the ending of Hide Away. Eve Duncan is a forensic sculpto Night and Day is the twenty first book in the series by Iris Johansen featuring the character Eve Duncan. This particular story line though began in book nineteen and has been it's own little trilogy within the overall series so I won't give any details directly about this story so I don't spoil it for anyone at this point but just a brief glimpse at the overall plot involved in all three books. This third of the trilogy picks up right at the ending of Hide Away. Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor, she gives a face to children who have been found murdered in an effort to try to bring justice to their killers. When she gets a phone call from a sheriff in California she agrees to work on the skull of a 9 year old who begins to speak to Eve as she works. Jenny can't remember much at first but she insists that Eve was meant to help her find out what happened to her. Eve becomes determined to find justice for Jenny and help bring in her killer. While I've enjoyed reading all three books in this story line the first was definitely my favorite as it was the one that dealt with the forensic side of the case. But all three have been a high intensity action packed ride all involving that first case that Eve started working with. There's a paranormal element added to each of the stories with the first and the third seeming like that was more prominent in the books. Overall, 3.5 stars, Iris Johansen is definitely a great writer and while I haven't read everything by her I'd definitely recommend checking out her work from what I have read. If interested in this book you should really go back and start at book nineteen to get the start of the story. I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. For more reviews please visit https://carriesbookreviews.wordpress....

All of which forces me to ask - who's the real idiot for continuing to read this amalgam of ridiculousness and histrionics?

    I loved this book from beginning to end. Iris Johansen concluded this book so well in this series. I'm excited to read the next chapter in Eve's life and I have a sneaking suspicion it might be with Cara. I recommend the Eve Duncan series for its intense scenes, heart wrenching storylines and edge of your seat drama. I loved this book from beginning to end.

    A perfect conclusion to this mini trilogy within the ongoing series. In all honesty the plot is not what gets me about these books.

    This was, honestly, the worst Iris Johansen novel I've read yet, and that's saying a lot. Poor, poor Eve Duncan just can't catch a break. She's found Bonnie's remains, survived being killed God knows how many times by now, and had to endure a terrifying kidnapping and near-death experience. Now, in this book, she has to deal with a woman who's determined to kill her and steal Cira's gold (yes, that old song STILL hasn't been played out yet). Now, as a reader, I know that Eve is invincible. No way This was, honestly, the worst Iris Johansen novel I've read yet, and that's saying a lot. Poor, poor Eve Duncan just can't catch a break. She's found Bonnie's remains, survived being killed God knows how many times by now, and had to endure a terrifying kidnapping and near-death experience. Now, in this book, she has to deal with a woman who's determined to kill her and steal Cira's gold (yes, that old song STILL hasn't been played out yet). Now, as a reader, I know that Eve is invincible. No way is she going to be killed at this point in the series. And through most of the book, she's pregnant, so she's got double immunity to death. This killed any sort of suspense I would have felt reading it. And that's just one item on a long, long list of reasons I hated this book. (view spoiler)[This book has everything I hate about Iris Johansen's writing, in spades. For "Strong Female Characters" who are constantly risking their lives but throw a hissy fit when other people do, we've got Eve and, of course, Jane. But now we've got a new character: Cara, an 11-year-old girl who's been on the run ever since her mother, the woman who wants to kill Eve, murdered her sister. Eve's taken quite a liking to this plucky little musical prodigy, and I guess she's planning on adopting her. Cara has also made friends with Jock, another recurring character in this series. Cara is the little star of the show, and she's the one who gets to deal with most of the awful stuff that happens in this book. Like every child in Johansen's books, she's extremely bright and precocious. She doesn't act like a child, because Johansen has no idea how to write children. She doesn't care a whit about herself. Now, if any of you remember what it's like to be a child, or know children, or have children of your own, you know that's bull. Yes, children can be selfless, but not to the extent where they only care about other people. Kids Cara's age are aware that death is final, and not just a trip that you can come back from, and they have a very strong self-preservation instinct. What's more, Cara knows how to do and say just the right things to convince the adults around her to let her risk her neck to protect Eve and Eve's unborn child. NO ADULT WOULD ALLOW THIS. I don't care how dire the consequences are, or how resourceful the kid is. She's still a kid, and Johansen is wacko. I know that's not a nice thing to say, but it's all I can think of. Most authors would know better. WARNING: The next paragraph mentions rape. Seth Caleb rapes Jane MacGuire in this book. I'm not kidding, and as far as I'm concerned, there's no mistake about it. He rapes her using his blood control powers. Jane never consents. She tries to resist, but she "can't" because his influence over her is too strong. He even taunts her by asking if she wants him to stop, when he knows she's going to say no. If you ignore someone's initial protests, only to forcibly stimulate them and THEN ask if they want you to stop, it's rape, even if by that point they don't say no. Sadly, I don't think Iris Johansen sees it this way. What Seth does is no different from drugging someone's drink. And I know they're still going to end up together; I've known it for several books now. Seth continues to tell Jane that "this is who I am," and he gets angry with her when she tries to resist the "chemistry" they have. He even justifies the sexual assault because it kept him from doing something "unforgivable" (i.e., raping her in the more traditional sense), and because he did her a "favor" (by giving her some weird psychic/sexual vision of Cira and her lover, Antonio; it's very weird and hard to explain). I was close to crying when I read Jane's reaction to the whole thing; she's clearly very distraught over it, and she distances herself from Seth for a long time. I've never liked Jane, but I've always felt bad for her for being involved with a man like Seth. Then there's the antagonist, Natalie. At first I was like, "Yay, a female antagonist!" But, as it turns out, she's just as flat as the male bad guys. I mean, I knew she would be, but I was at least hoping she wouldn't be a walking stereotype. As it turns out, she's the only kind of female bad guy untalented authors can come up with: Yep, she's a femme fatale. She uses sex to get what she wants in a way that's so embarrassingly obvious that I'm surprised it even works. But what really ticked me off is that she actually has a point about sexism. Nobody takes her seriously because she's a woman; even her father says he'll arrange for her enemies to be killed (instead of lettering her do it) because "you're only my daughter." This is in stark contrast to Eve and Johansen's other heroines, who never complain about the sexist men in their lives (which is pretty much EVERY man in their lives). And I'm sorry, am I supposed to be impressed that Seth's "one of the good guys" when he takes such great pleasure in torturing people? But I haven't even stated what I hate most about this book, because even I can't stretch my suspension of disbelief this far. Eve has a psychic fetus growing inside her. Bonnie's appearances are bad enough, now we have to Eve interact with her unborn child. It starts when Eve gets a feeling that she'll take care of the baby and the baby will take care of her, like he's making a "deal" with her. That's fine. I can see that; mother's intuition and all that. Whatever. But then Bonnie shows up to make an announcement: the baby is a boy, and he thinks of himself as "Michael." He doesn't know how to tell her this, because he can only communicate in emotions. So he "asks" Bonnie to do it. FETUSES DO NOT UNDERSTAND GENDER. Even newborn babies don't understand it! It's something they learn! And they sure as heck don't know their names, either! Bonnie tells Eve that Michael is "special" (of course), and that he's also very protective of her. Ugh. So he's like every other male in these books. And he's not even born yet. If there's one thing Johansen loves, it's sentence fragments, composed of single words. If you've read even one Johansen novel, you know what it's like. Pain. Darkness. Love. Comfort. Warmth. That latter trio, friends, is how Michael communicates with Eve. Sometimes we see "humor," too. Or "Rejection. Anger." at a point in the book when both his and Eve's lives are endangered. We see it over and over again, and it's even more obnoxious than usual. As it turns out, Bonnie wasn't kidding. Michael shows every sign of being as possessive and controlling as Joe, Jock, Caleb, and all the other men in this book. I can see I've got a lot to look forward to. Speaking of Jock, this brings me to one of the most disturbing things in this book: Jock and Cara's relationship. At first, I thought it was sweet that Jock had finally made a friend. But of course, this is a male character who's a decade or more older than a female character. Do you get where I'm going with this? Yes, that's right--Johansen seems to be hinting that Jock and Cara are going to end up together in the future. As lovers. Now, look. I know that Johansen has a thing for enormous age gaps between men and women. Catherine Ling, one of her characters, was married at 17 to a man in his 50s or 60s. Jane wanted to be in a relationship with Trevor, a man in his 30s, when she was 17, and, several years later, she's still mad at him for not agreeing to take advantage of a high schooler. But this is on another level entirely. 12-year-olds are still going through puberty, for God's sake. And while there's nothing explicitly sexual, or even romantic, about Jock and Cara's behavior toward one another, I can read between the lines. Jock is showing love toward Cara in the only way men in Johansen's little world know how: by being fiercely protective of her, becoming angry and cold toward her when she risks her well-being (he has a right to not agree with her, but he's really *mean* about it), and giving her plenty of warnings about what a horrible person he is. I really, really hope I'm just looking too much into this, but I would not put it past Johansen at this point. If I am correct, then congratulations, Johansen. You have officially outdone yourself and added a whole new level of CREEP to your books. And although Seth is talking about something else when he says "Age is just a number," I have a very bad feeling that you're planning to make the same argument regarding Cara's sexual maturity when she's older. When are she and Jock going to hook up? When she's sixteen? Please, Johansen, don't do this. There is nothing appropriate about Jock and Cara's relationship, even as it stands. There's still time. Turn back, and do the right thing. Aside from all this, the book was pretty boring and predictable, except for the most action-filled parts. Honestly, if Johansen just stuck to the doing and threw out all the talking and thinking, her books would be 500% more tolerable. And a lot shorter, too. Don't read this book, unless you've fallen in love with Cara somehow (not THAT way, ew), or if it's an OCD compulsion like mine. (hide spoiler)]

    Night and Day is the finality of Iris Johansen’s trilogy about Eve Duncan and 11 year old Cara Castino whom Eve has decided to take under her wing. The trilogy began with Shadow Play and then Hide Away and now Night and Day. Cara’s mother has kidnapped her and now it is up to Eve, Joe and their extended family to get her back. As usual Iris Johansen does not disappoint but I have to say I miss Bonnie. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this ARC.

I won't be reading her upcoming books. What would be good alternative, if you are like me is to borrow audiobook from the library, preferably an abridged version. I enjoyed the forensic sculpture and a little supernatural attributes but those were two books ago in Shadow Play. Shadow Play had a good story and should have wrap it there. It's a shame, the author has good characters in this series but to write a whole book about hiding (Hide Away) and another retrieving (Night and Day) is silly. If your curious about the treasure.... Sorry to disappoint you maybe next book or one after that.....

    When a Russian Mafia princess is spoiled - beware. In this latest book in the series, it is a page turner. This starts off right after the last book. This book does need to be read in order. It is best to read Shadow Play, then Hideaway prior to reading this story because it will make more sense. This three book arc focuses on Cara Delaney and her family. First her sister Jenny appears, then her mother and father's story is revealed. Her grandfather, whom she has never met, is now interested in When a Russian Mafia princess is spoiled - beware. In this latest book in the series, it is a page turner. This starts off right after the last book. This book does need to be read in order. It is best to read Shadow Play, then Hideaway prior to reading this story because it will make more sense. This three book arc focuses on Cara Delaney and her family. First her sister Jenny appears, then her mother and father's story is revealed. Her grandfather, whom she has never met, is now interested in seeing her. Flown against her will to Russia, Cara walks on eggshells as her mother blackmails her into obedience. Her grandfather is a powerful man who lives by a certain code of ethics. Is it legal? Debatable based on what one consider what is legal and what should not be. The pace of this tale moves slow at first. As we learn more about Cara's unknown family ties, it is clear that Cara's mother has only one specific interest. The sheer cruelty and negligence from mother to daughter is laid out in high definition. It is appalling, especially when contrasted with how much Eve wants to protect Cara. The ruthlessness in this book is what made it appealing for me. I like how brutal the different factions fight against each other. There are no safe rooms or political correctness here. This is the world where only might makes right. The power struggles and the backstabbing is as expected and chillingly written. I enjoyed the character development as well as the multi-thread storyline. Ms. Johansen does a marvelous job of weaving together several story lines. This helps move the story along faster as we learn more about the past, present and what the future may hold. Ms. Johansen's storytelling is captivating and each one of the books in this series just gets better and better. The character growth and development of Eve is a pleasure to see. What is more endearing is all the people she has met and how they become part of her circle of friends. This world of Eve's keeps growing and her life is always interesting. At first I thought once Bonnie's mystery was solved, the series should end. I was so wrong. Ms. Johansen keeps the storyline fresh and exciting. I look forward to every book about Eve and her friends. In this one, whilst it ends a three book arc, it plants a little seed of what will come next. I cannot wait to see what Ms. Johansen brings to life. It will be filled with action, suspense, characters of questionable nature and a bit of romance. She brings it all in this series. This book is recommended to suspense readers who enjoy a little element of romance plus a treasure to be found. *provided by NetGalley

    I loved this book three of Cara' s Trilogy. I know Eve, and Jane are strong female characters ,but I give the top prize to Cara. Her ability to adapt to any situation, and to be positive , and feel positive in others was pretty outstanding.I also believed for twelve, that she listened, was determined, and made decisive decisions, for herself, and others.

My favorites keep changing per story. I was drawn to Cara, Jock, and, Caleb. They seemed to be a bit outside, and still step to the forefront , when things are fraught with danger . They both try to fit into the tightly knit family circle, but find it hard .I wish Jane would give Caleb a chance. He has come to her aid numerous times. I love her books, and although partially tied up at the end. She left us a few problems to address. This is not a cliff hanger, but the future about Cara is still undecided. The Eve Duncan books have wonderful characters, and always evil villains.

    St. Martin's Press and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of Night and Day, in exchange for an honest review.

Night and Day is no exception, as Eve spends entirely too much time on her latest search and rescue mission. Nothing about finding Cara sets this book apart from the ones that have come before. It is my sincere hope that author Iris Johansen will either return Eve to her quiet home near the lake, in order for her to begin her next reconstruction, or will retire the character once and for all. I look forward to reading the next offering by this author and would recommend Night and Day only for the purposes of closing out this latest trilogy.

I was not left on the edge of my seat wanting more. I was waiting for the book to be over to find out just how it would all end. This did not blow me away. I don't think I will be reading more in the Eve Duncan series. I just don't feel connected to her characters. The writing is good but nothing grabbed me.

    "Despite all precautions, Cara is taken, Eve must hunt down the very people who want to kill her—and keep her guessing each step of the way. At a time in her life when she has more at stake than ever before, Eve doesn’t hesitate to put it all on the line in a pulse-pounding mission of rescue and survival. . .while a brutal enemy, who watches her every move, lies in wait." Again, there really wasn't much reason to read the second book, as it was rehashed in this one as well as the first. Now that "Despite all precautions, Cara is taken, Eve must hunt down the very people who want to kill her—and keep her guessing each step of the way. At a time in her life when she has more at stake than ever before, Eve doesn’t hesitate to put it all on the line in a pulse-pounding mission of rescue and survival. . .while a brutal enemy, who watches her every move, lies in wait." Again, there really wasn't much reason to read the second book, as it was rehashed in this one as well as the first. Now that Eve is pregnant, you would think she wouldn't take such stupid risks, but nope. Of course she does. It's also clear that the author doesn't know how to write children. Yet, onto the next book.

    Garbage. Too much dialogue and not enough story.

    I somehow jumped a few books in the series, and now I am backtracking to get caught up again. It was a little too fast paced and unrealistic.

    The 21st book in the Eve Duncan series. Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor who helps identify the dead from their skulls. This book picks up where Hide Away left off. Eve and others are still trying to keep Cara safe. Fast-paced and exciting.

    Suspense at its finest! This is another fine installment of the Eve Duncan series and each and every one of them still gives me the same intensity as the one before. Eve and Joe’s extended family keeps getting bigger and I have to say better. Cara came in to their lives in the Hide Away and along with Cara comes her psychopathic mother Natalie.

This is another fine installment of the Eve Duncan series and each and every one of them still gives me the same intensity as the one before. Eve and Joe’s extended family keeps getting bigger and I have to say better. Cara came in to their lives in the Hide Away and along with Cara comes her psychopathic mother Natalie. Eve and company are trying everything in their power to keep Cara safe from the mother who wants her dead. Natalie is lead to believe that Eve also has something else that she wants and that is Cira’s fortune. McDuff and company have been in search of this for some time now but they feel they are closer than ever to unearthing this treasure. Cara is stronger than most adults which probably comes from being on the run her whole life and having people who have been trying to protect her giving up their lives to keep her safe. Cara and Jock have this special bond that I am so curious to see where this will all head to. As for Jane and Caleb this is such a push/pull relationship that I’m always anticipating that “this is finally going to be it”! I love this couple too. As for Eve and Joe they show love at its finest and the paths they have to go down to keep their loved ones safe is always riveting. There is still so much to tell in this series and if it is done with the intensity every story has been so far they will be a huge hit for anyone who loves a great suspense/thriller book. This book was provided as an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review.

    I love Johansen's books in general but this book was a bit below par. Eve seems to constantly attract the crazies with scenarios that get more bizarre in each book. In Night and Day, Eve is injected with a poisonous capsule that will kill both herself and her unborn child because she angered Natalie, the mother of Cara the girl she's been trying to safe. Jane comes across as hypocritical, she is still angry with Caleb but wants him to help her with Eve.

This book is no exception, one can only hope that the next book will differ from this overused plot. McDuff is still obsessed with Cira's gold and devotes all his time on finding it except for the times he puts himself in harms way to help Eve. There's not much to say about Quin, he is becoming a cardboard character, other than protecting Eve he has no other role in this book. The stories just seem to be getting a bit to far fetched. If there are going to be more Eve Duncan books I would like to see her go back to sculpting. It would also be absolutely awesome if she could start being a regular person again without crazies trying to kill her in bizarre ways.

    I received this book from Goodreads in exchange for a review. The life of a young girl is at stake. A girl who has spent her entire life on the run.

Cara and her protectors must maintain a constant vigil. But then the unthinkable happens; Cara is snatched by Natalie and carried off to Russia…a pawn in her Mothers plot to amass power and wealth. Revenge and instilling terror are something Natalie is so very good at. And while Eve Duncan and her associates try to protect Cara from the evil that is her Mother, MacDuff is searching through the mists for Cira’s treasure. It will take everyone, including Eve’s unborn son, to wage the final battle that will destroy Natalie. Slowly author Iris Johansen sets the stage for a showdown where Eve must risk everything to protect both Cara and Michael, her unborn son. ‘Nail-biting’ and ‘heart- pounding edge of your seat ‘too tame to describe the conclusion of this trilogy that will leave the readers gasping for air because they have been holding their breath until the last word has been read.

    Funny-I read a few reviews of this book on Goodreads before writing this review. I agree with both the positive reviews and the negative reviews at the same time. I always enjoy when I get a new Iris Johansen book. This is the third of a trilogy , so it you did not read the two before, you could be lost. But you do not have to read ALL 21 previous novels BUT that helps too...

When I see her next book, though, I will be reading that one too, and hope it reads a little easier.

    A great read. In "Hideaway" (book #20) - Eve Duncan (forensic specialist) and Joe Quinn (investigator) save a homeless girl Cara Delaney(11). While you read this "Night and Day" (book #21) we learn early Eve is pregnant (with Micheal). The main excitement is saving Cara, from her evil Russian mother, Natalie Castin. One plan is kidnapping Cara for a trade of "Cira" gold coins. Natalie brings Cira to her dad, Kaskov, powerful Russian mob boss, lying they need protection from others trying to kill A great read.

A good part of the Eve Duncan & Koskov (dad) message is remember to be "truthful and love your family".

    Forensic sculptor Eve Duncan chases after 11 year old Cara who has been kidnapped by her own birth mother, sociopath Natalie Castino. Eve's entire family assists her including lover Joe Quinn and adopted daughter Jane, as well as a newer cast of characters brought into the series in the last few books.

    The latest book in the Eve Duncan series that culminates a trilogy about saving a young girl from certain death. Fast paced and a reunion of characters from across many past installments in the series makes for a fun and exciting read.

If you like international mystery and intrigue then I recommend this book, but I would not recommend reading it as a stand alone book. If you aren't interested in reading the entire series, I would at least recommend that you read the last 3 books (this one included in that 3) as a trilogy inside the series.

    This is book 21 in the Eve Duncan series and it's book 3 in a trilogy where Eve becomes involved with an eleven year old girl whose father is a leading Mexican drug cartel dealer and whose mother wants her dead. Protecting Cara makes Eve the target and it will take everything Eve can do to keep Cara alive. this story is a trilogy so it's a good idea to start with book 19. It's a pretty good story and I gave it a 4.

    Meh...this is a continuation from the last book. Natalie & Cara flying off into the sunset. Eve & team planning & plotting to get Cara back. My life is so boring compared to Eve Duncan. Nobody ever implanted a poisonous microcapsule into my butt j/k but really this series is getting a little too far-fetched. Time to bringbit back to where it was many years ago.

    This time it wasn't Eve whining, it was the kid, Cara, whining about everything!! I will not be sucked into this series again. I had to finish the book but I regret it. Really, looking for a gold treasure in Scotland in the 'mist' or 'fog'? And a kid doing outlandish things to be of help to Eve? And a poison pill? Sorry, can't do it anymore.
