The number-one blockbuster bestselling author returns with a thriller that pits Eve Duncan against the one man who can put her darkest horror to rest - or make her relive it over and over again Since that day, her life has become an obsession to find Bonnie's remains and put the pain of her death to rest.
However, one man wants nothing more than to prevent that from happening. He is every woman's waking nightmare: a brilliant, ruthless killer whose hunting ground stretches from coast to coast.
But taunting Eve Duncan might be his first and last mistake For Eve is armed with more than just her talent as a forensic sculptor and her fierce protective nature.
Eve's only salvation may be through the mysterious skills of another woman whose chilling talent leaves her as tormented as Eve - and as driven to bring this monster to justice.
But when lives are in danger, every step could be a trap, and every inch of solid ground seems to be shifting under their feet. And this killer wants nothing more than to lure Eve further and further into his swamp of madness With relentless pace and gut-wrenching intensity, Quicksand is Iris Johansen at her best.

This was another really good read in the Eve Duncan series, although I still find myself getting tired of Eve on occasion. I know that Eve needs to find the body of her daughter, Bonnie, for closure. I know that she's obsessed with this task. But, sometimes, you just wan This was another really good read in the Eve Duncan series, although I still find myself getting tired of Eve on occasion. But, sometimes, you just want to smack her for letting it ruin so many other aspects of her life. No matter what happens in the long run, though, I hope to see more of a paranormal aspect to the storyline: and it seems that there will be, what with the way the story ends.
If you're a follower of the Eve Duncan series, you'll want to read this one. It's good overall, and you can always hope that Montalvo comes to his senses and looks for a new woman to obsess over soon. View all 3 comments. Apr 29, Julie jjmachshev rated it it was amazing Shelves: reads.
If you have been reading the story of Eve, Joe, and Bonnie If you like romantic suspense more suspense than romance , then you should really check out this series. Backstory: Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor whose daughter Bonnie was apparently the victim of a child killer. Neither Bonnie's killer nor Bonnie have ever been located and Eve just can't stop searching. She needs to bring Bonnie home Each book in this series provides hints and clues to Bonnie's case, Eve, her cop lover Joe, and other Eve intimates.
In "Quicksand", Joe has a good lead on one of Bonnie's possible killers. The killer is a true whack-job and delights in taunting Eve with each new kill. At points in this book, I wanted to smack Eve. For such a strong, intelligent woman, she has some definate stupid moments. Eve also has to deal with Montalvo prior book. She's still strongly attracted to Montalvo, but cherishes what she has with Joe. In "Quicksand", Eve finally realizes that her obsession with Bonnie may be damaging her current relationships and just how far she's willing to go to "bring Bonnie home".
Jan 25, Kristina Van Hoose rated it did not like it. I picked up this book after enjoying The Search by the same author, but reading the two stories, one would never guess they were written by the same author. Quicksand follows Eve Duncan, a forensic specialist who spends her time reconstructing bodies with wax faces in order to help identify them.
She began this career sometime after losing her own child Bonnie. She's married to Joe Quinn, a detective, and has an adopted daughter named Jane. There's also Montalvo, a man who loves Eve, and let's f I picked up this book after enjoying The Search by the same author, but reading the two stories, one would never guess they were written by the same author.
There's also Montalvo, a man who loves Eve, and let's face it, she has some feelings for him too, but she's married so he's off limits. Eve and Joe were only minor characters in The Search , and I'm starting to think that was a good thing!
Quicksand is a boring read to put it bluntly. The only thing that kept me reading was my personal goal of reading 50 books over the course of a year.
Well, that and I kept hoping it would get better. Eve Duncan is by far one of the most annoying characters I have yet to come across in a book. Throughout the story she complains about how she's dragging Joe into danger in her pursuit to find Bonnie's killer even though it wasn't his child.
It's Eve's quest, after all, so he should sit on the sidelines and stay out of danger. However, Joe refuses to put Eve in danger, and therefore chooses to be more proactive about everything in order to find Bonnie. But Joe won't let Eve do anything but stay in the hotel, and that makes Eve angry. It's my child. I should be able to go after her killer. I hate just sitting here doing nothing Joe!
Let me do something! Or, if you want it in Eve's own words, here's a quote from page "Everyone wants to protect me and I'm the one causing all this. Change your mind Joe. I'm neither stupid nor helpless. Let me do this alone! Honestly, Eve, you are a bit helpless.
It leaves me asking, "Well, Eve, why don't you find a way to be productive and do something instead of sitting there whining about how you aren't doing anything then? Eve has to stay and watch Megan though, the psychic who is undergoing serious trauma listening to the deaths of all these children. Eve, in her stupidity, decides it would be an excellent idea to follow Joe and therefore put herself and Megan in danger. Way to go, dumbass.
I wonder if Johansen realized this. Now, this love triangle between Eve, Joe, and Montalvo is intriguing, I suppose.

Henry Kistle's hand tightened on the curtain as he looked down, careful to stay hidden from view. There, in the shadow of the elm a short distance down the street, was a tall, thin man. He was talking on a cell phone. Who was he talking to? Who had managed to track him down this time? Don't be nervous, he told himself. It didn't matter if one of them had found him.
