Synopsis: From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes the explosive third book in the latest Eve Duncan trilogy.

Iris Johansen’s third book in her latest explosive trilogy starring forensic sculptor Eve Duncan takes readers on a high-energy adventure with Eve fighting to overcome the odds. Protecting Cara Delaney from the enemies who want her dead leads Eve to be their target. It will take everything she has to rescue Cara, and doing so will put that which is dearest to her at risk. Night and Day is the pulse-pounding race to a conclusion that will have readers on the edge of their seats.

My Review: This is the conclusion to the latest Eve Duncan Trilogy and the 21st Eve Duncan book. The characters in this story is what pulls me to read each new book in the series. Eve and Joe have a relationship that has developed over the years. They have worked together, eventually married and continue to work together. They finish each other’s sentences and thoughts. Their love is very strong and they will do anything for each other, including putting their own lives in danger. Jane, their adopted daughter, McDuff the Scottish Laird, Caleb and Jock all have very strong gifts they use throughout the story. I will say the relationship between Jock and Cara was just a little strange for me though. The villian in this story is very well written and I was impressed with how well she wrote about this female character who is a sociopath.

This story picks up right where the last one left off with Cara being whisked away in a helicopter and Eve trying to save her. There are a lot of twists and turns, unfortunately some deaths and violence and a little over the top unbelievable stuff (it is fiction you know) that all weave an edge of your seat story. There is a pleasant surprise twist in this story that I liked very much.

I enjoyed this story a lot. I read the trilogy and was disappointed with the second one, but the conclusion redeemed it for me. Recommended for suspense readers who enjoy a little paranormal activity.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
