REVIEW of Shattered Mirror (Eve Duncan #23) by Iris Johansen

Hardcover, 339 pages
Published April 24th 2018 by St. Martin's Press

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a new explosive thriller featuring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan.

Iris Johansen returns with a thrilling novel of action and danger where fan favorite Eve Duncan is thrown once more into a deadly game of intrigue. It begins when Eve receives a package containing a skull—and instructions for Eve to do her work reconstructing it. When she does, a beautiful woman’s face emerges. But when Eve is introduced to the dead woman’s mirror image, a game is on where her twin’s life hangs in the balance.

My Thoughts…

Shattered Mirror is part of the Eve Duncan series, which is an all-time favorite of mine, by Iris Johansen.   Sometimes when a series gets to book #23 (or another higher number) the story becomes predictable, boring, or repetitive.    Yet, Iris Johansen writes each Eve Duncan book as its own story.    Each story has a unique mystery, new interesting characters, and a different setting.    While all of that is new and exciting, there are the old favorite characters, relationships, and familiar settings that have always made this series a must-read.     

Shattered Mirror focus’ on Cara.   Her family, her history, her present, and her future are all shared to allow the reader to get to know her better.   Of course, Eve, Joe, and their son Michael are all featured characters since they are now the family that Cara never had growing up.    Jock, I picture him as a rough around the edges sexy alpha male who always seems to be around,  is a huge part of the story since the connection between Cara and Jock has always been part of any story that Cara is part of.   I will always be an Eve Duncan fan but it is fun to get the chance to know the secondary characters from her other books. 

Read this series, start it in any order, but read it.   Iris Johansen has a great talent for suspense, thrills, twists, and turns.
