Iris Johansen é Smokescreen Eve Duncan #25 doc

Who she can trust Eve finds herself stranded in an unstable country where violence threatens to break out again at any moment and with only her own instincts to rely on if she hopes to get home to her family alive #1 New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen is back with one of her most exhilarating and dangerous adventures yet in this riveting high stakes thriller Publishers Weekl I won this book in a Goodreads giveawayFull disclosure I have read a couple of Iris Johansen's books before but this was the first Eve Duncan book I read To her credit I didn't feel like I was lost because I didn't have a lot of the characters' back stories nor did I feel like she was throwing in random background pieces in order to catch me up I've read books by other authors who have done this and it makes for some tedious readingThe plot line itself was enough to keep my interest and sadly reminiscent of the Rwanda genocideBut there were several things I didn't care for very much and which led me to give it a 3 star rating I found the dialogue to be odd It just didn't sound realistic or reflective of how people speak to each other Sometimes it was overly formal and other times the exchanges were just tiresome and repetitive Most of the characters weren't likeable and perhaps that's because they seemed perpetually grumpy Granted this is serious material and a serious plot line with its fair share of bad guys but everyone just seemed so intense and annoyed with each other all the time Repetitive words and phrases throughout the book If I'd had an electronic copy of this book I would have done a count of how many times the word gaze was used or gaze flew as in her gaze flew to his eyes Or someone's lips twisting When you're reading a 400 page book and there's enough repetition of these words that it starts standing out that's not good Finally there wasn't enough Eve Duncan in the second half of the book In fact she was an altogether very minor character in the second half There were references made in the book to how she was a world renowned forensic sculptor and the best at what she does but we didn't get to see very much of thatI would be interested in perhaps reading an earlier Eve Duncan book to see of that character There was enough here to intrigue me forensic sculptors aren't your typical crime fighter but this book didn't uite live up to my expectations

Smokescreen Eve Duncan #25In this pulse pounding thriller from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Iris Johansen forensic sculptor Eve Duncan journeys to Africa to help families torn apart by a violent attack deep in the jungle but she may be putting herself in danger than she knowsA journalist shows up on Eve Duncan's doorstep with a plea for help Jill Cassidy has just come from a small African village with a he Eve Duncan is pretty much bullied into taking on a new case when journalist Jill Cassidy implores her to come to Africa with her to help parents of children killed in a massacre They need closure and Eve is just the right one to do so with her knowledge of forensic sculptor But Jill has another motive and soon Eve will find herself is uite a lot of danger Smokescreen is one of those books that I really wanted to like but ultimately the story failed for me because of some factors that I will discuss later on in the review But first let's start with what I found good and that is the story itself The massacre of the children in a school and Eve's help to find closure for the parents together with the real reason for her being there Because yes Eve is lured there to help with another thing that they need her special knowledge to do This is the part of the story that worked for me That and the interesting royal history of the leader of the country that played a big role in the story And if Eve and Jill and been alone working on this with the help of Jill's friend Gideon had I most likely enjoyed the book Unfortunately I have two big problems with the book and some of the other books I've read by Iris Johansen and that the's the men From Joe uinn Eve's husband to Jill FBI agent friend Novak Sorry but these macho men are boring me so much I like Iris Johansen's books but she has a tendency to use a special type of man in every book that feels like an overbearing macho man and I just get the feeling that she has found her niche when it comes to it and now everyone man is written the same way Even when I read other series by Iris Johansen And of course that brings me to the second problem The romance part because of course Jill and Novak have a lot of sexual tension all through the book Well it's written that way I was utterly bored by that I was interested in Jill's role as a journalist and her work to expose the truth about the massacre etcSmokescreen ended up being a so so book for me Not among the best like the early ones I've read or like Shadow Play that introduced me to the author And that's just too bad because I like Eve Duncan I just wish the story had focused on exposing the truth and definitely less on the romance I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy for an honest review
