Book Review: "Body of Lies"

BODY OF LIES by Iris Johansen

"A taut, fast-paced and terrifying psychological thriller featuring forensic sculptor, Eve Duncan. Eve Duncan deals in death every day. It's her job, but now that job is about to put her life on the line - and the lives of everyone close to her. A high-ranking government official wants Eve to drop everything and come to Baton Rouge to identify the remains of an unknown murder victim. Eve wants nothing to do with the project, having finally found peace from her own tragic past. She is enjoying a quiet life in a small lakeside cottage with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and her adopted daughter, Jane. But as a stunning series of seemingly unrelated events begins to upset all that, Eve flees to Baton Rouge to take on the job. Forced to work in secrecy and given only the sketchiest information, Eve can't help but wonder if all the high-level security is meant to protect or imprison her. When the next death occurs before she has even begun work on the reconstruction, it becomes clear that someone totally ruthless, who can strike anywhere at any time, and with seeming immunity, is determined to put a halt to her work. The questions - and the threats to her life - mount as Eve realises she has stumbled into the heart of a chilling conspiracy and the truth lies buried beneath a body of lies..."
I just finished listening to this book last night. Another thriller!!! I also found out that my hubs reads her books too. So that was cool. It has everything you might expect from the author and the series. The little girl still comes to Eve as a ghost. Joe is still very protective of Eve. The thrill of the chase is there too! An unexpected twist at the end leave the reader drawing their own conclusions. I love it! I am on to another one of her audio books! I highly recommend this series.
