Book Review: "Quinn"

Quinn by Iris Johansen

"Johansen delivers her thrilling and revelatory follow-up to the "New York Times" bestseller "Eve," which delves deep into the life and psyche of forensic sculptor Eve Duncan's lover and soul mate, Joe Quinn. As a ruthless killer closes in, long-held secrets are gradually and shockingly revealed. "#1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen explores the darkest corners of the human heart as forensic sculptor Eve Duncan closes in on the killer who stole her daughter so many years ago. "As a former Navy SEAL turned cop, Joe Quinn has seen the face of evil and knows just how deadly it can be. When he first met Eve Duncan, he never expected to fall in love with a woman whose life would be defined by her dual desires to bring home her missing daughter and discover the truth behind her disappearance---no matter how devastating. With the help of CIA agent Catherine Ling, they make a shocking discovery that sheds new light on young Bonnie's abduction and puts Quinn squarely in the crosshairs of danger. Eve's first love, John Gallo, a soldier supposedly killed in the line of duty, is very much alive---and very much a threat. Emotionally charged, with one shock after another, Quinn reveals the electricity of Joe and Eve's first connection, and how they fell in love in the midst of haunting tragedy. As their search takes them deeper and deeper into a web of murder and madness, Joe and Eve must confront their most primal fears . . . and test their resolve to uncover the ultimate bone-chilling truth."

I loved this audio book!!! When it ended I realized there were more books to this series. 14 books in this series and I had just listened to book number 13!!!! So I have my list of books and plan to go back to the beginning and listen to the other 12. I can't wait to hear the ending though, so I will probably go ahead and listen to book number 14 asap!!! I have already reserved all the audio books from the library and plan on picking them up tomorrow. Woohoo!!! OK, I love the protective nature of the characters. I do find them a bit 'bossy' and 'blunt' towards each other too. Makes for a good read or 'listen' in my case. Also I have to add that the narrator was the best I have heard and I do hope that she is the narrator in the other books as well.
