It seems like an ordinary skull -- but it isn't. And for forensic sculptor Eve Duncan, this discovery will draw her into a frightening odyssey of greed, manipulation, and violence.It started simply enough, with businessman John Logan offering her another routine job of recreating a face from a skull. Hesitant at first, then persuaded to accept, Eve leaves the safety of her home office for Logan's makeshift lab, never expecting that the face she will construct using a computer, plasticine, and clay will make her the target of an audacious killer. For that face belongs to a man who's supposed to be alive, a man of vital importance to the nation.As Eve struggles to puzzle out the truth, she and Logan will become entangled in a dangerous web of lies and deceit, with threads that may extend all the way to the highest office in the land.

There is nothing wrong with the plot in this book, but the development of the main character leaves a lot to be desired. The author uses repetition of the same lines, situations, interactions, etc. to drive home the idea that the main character is a strong woman with a mind of her own who has fought against extreme odds. It really gets irritating after the third or fourth time in a span of 20 pages

Good thriller, looking forward to reading the whole series.The dialogue was a bit drawn out and repetitive at times, but the story was good.

I really loved this book and can't wait to read the rest of the series. I had a very hard time putting down the book. It was a real page turner. It was quite a mature read for me though.
