Full Answer

After the success of the first five novels, Johansen continued the series with "Blind Alley" and "Countdown." From 2006 to 2010, Johansen added five more books to the series: “Stalemate,” “Quicksand,” “Blood Game,” “Eight Days to Live” and “Chasing the Night.” In 2011, Johansen wrote a career-high three books in the series: “Eve,” “Quinn” and "Bonnie.” Her most recent titles include “Sleep No More,” “Taking Eve,” “Hunting Eve” and “Silencing Eve.” One of Johansen's early novels featuring Eve Duncan, "The Killing Game," was adapted as a television movie.

Although Eve Duncan is a character that appears in all 19 books in Johansen’s suspenseful series, the last three – “Taking Eve,” “Hunting Eve” and “Silencing Eve” – focus almost exclusively on Eve. The other books in the series feature Eve and her relationship with two other characters, Bonnie and Quinn.

Eve Duncan is arguably one of Iris Johansen’s most complex characters. Duncan works as a forensic sculptor, simultaneously bringing killers to justice and helping the families of victims find peace. Her professional dedication stems from the loss of her daughter, who was murdered. However, while Duncan is successful at her work, she struggles with the challenge of identifying her daughter's killer.
