Forensic sculpture Eve Duncan goes home after a complex mentally draining case that featured the murders of several children (see QUICKSAND). She opens her refrigerator to find a goblet with blood stains inside. It looks identical to a goblet found by the corpse of nineteen year old Nancy Jo Norris; the blood had been drained from the U.S. senator's daughter. Eve's lover FBI agent Joe Quinn apparently can now see dead people; at least two that is: Nancy Jo and Eve's daughter Bonnie. He assumes that he somehow obtained this paranormal skill from psychic Megan Blair (see QUICKSAND and PANDORA'S DAUGHTER). The ghosts thirst for blood so assist the human sleuths on a search for a wannabe Dracula copy cat killer. This is an exciting Eve Duncan serial killer thriller that increases dramatically the paranormal elements. Eve remains restless, but Joe has proven to be a comfort for her as Bonnie haunts her emotionally and haunts him directly. The story line is fast-paced as Eve and Joe with help from beyond hunt a vampire killer, but gothic overtones detract from the suspense as the lead couple is too well known by fans for the pair to be overly melodramatic. Still BLOOD GAME is a fascinating Duncan investigative tale. Harriet Klausner

I have loved reading the Eve Duncan novels in the past, but the last couple have been very disappointing, especially "Blood Game". Ms. Johansen has just gotten too much into "hocus pocus" type stories. It takes away from the strong characters and relationships that I have enjoyed, and borders on just plain silly. I liked Eve Duncan novels because they were mystery-thrillers with complicated and interesting characters. I liked that she left it up to the reader to decide if Bonnie visiting Eve was a "ghost" or a dream. Now she has taken away that choice, and made the series something unenjoyable for those who don't want to read books with the occult in them. I will be unlikely to read any more of the Eve Duncan series unless I see an indication that Ms. Johansen is moving back away from this theme.

Iris continues to deliver on the Eve Duncan series. She does a wonderful job at adding new story lines that can continue this series of characters while introducing new ones for future books. If you have read the Eve series you will be happy with this next page in her journey. I will say, if you have followed the series she leaves a few things open that make you wonder. They do not relate to the true story line but reference past relationships from other books in the series. You will not find it distracting from the story line.

Another great book by Iris Johansen. I have read almost all of her books and all of the books in the Eve Duncan series. I have to say this book was really good. Once I started could not put it down. It continued where Quicksand left off. Can not wait till the next.

This one was way too paranormal for me. Got ridiculous. Caleb was just too far out there. Get back to reasonably normal stuff, for goodness sake. Stephanie Clanahan

This was a good additon to this series! Also liked how Iris is starting to bring in the supernatural in and explaining more about Bonnie's life and her death. Can't wait for the next installment in this series.

Once again Iris Johansen has written a great book in the Eve Duncan Forensics series. Eve, her boyfriend Joe, and "adopted" daughter Jane, with the help of Seth Caleb, attempt to stop a serial killer who thinks that by drinking people's blood he will be an all powerful vampire. I look forward to the next book in the series to see if Eve will ever find the body of her daughter, Bonnie, who was kidnapped years ago.

Eve Duncan is back. She is still looking for Bonnie and she has still never mentioned to Joe that she "talks" to Bonnie in her "dreams". Joe has started to see and talk to Bonnie as well as another murder victim after his brush with an active psychic in the previous novel. Joe comes to terms with this "insanity" and uses the ability to talk to a murder victim to attempt to capture her murderer, Jelak. Jelak is also in pursuit of Eve and Jane... Eve will bring Jelak immortality as a vampire/god, he just needs to drink her life force through her blood....

I waited and waited for this book. I added it to every wish list available to see how I could get it quicker. And well.....I'm bummed. Yes, I think that this gets us closer to the end when it comes to Bonnie, and figuring out how Eve and Joe are going to make it, but this is not nearly as good as other books in the series. Not even close!It's a good mystery. And it brings in Megan Blair from a past book in the series. Megan's involvement and impact on Joe is by far the best thing that came out of this book. While normally Eve is busy with her work, it's totally sidelined in this book and I found that I mised that. As usual, Jane is a part of the drama and finds herself in danger of being bait for deranged killer who is after Eve. Montalvo makes an appearance in this book and I'm curious as to where that's leading.I read the book in only a couple of days even though I wasn't really interested in the mystery or crime. I was more interested in how all the individual pieces were going to piece into other coming boooks in the series. I kept hoping for more, but that hope will have to carry over to the next book in the series due out in 2010.

This started out great, but the tension dropped away except for the villain. He was strong.
