Reviews Shattered Mirror (Eve Duncan, #23)

  • Tim
    This did nothing for me.
  • Magdalena aka A Bookaholic Swede
    First, I want to say that I had some trepidation about reading this book. I do find this series wonderful, but the last book just didn't do much for me. So, I really wanted to like this book, but I was worried that I would be disappointed again. Thankfully, this book worked better for, although it's still far away from the best ones I read in this series. At least Eve Duncan has a more prominent role to play in this book than in the last. I do li...

    I accidentally discovered this series several years while reading its spinoff, Kendra Michaels. I've always been partial to Kendra, but find myself jumping in and out of this series from time to time, as I've come to admire Eve and Joe. Shattered Mirror is easily one of my favorites of this series, and I can't wait to read the next installment of Eve Duncan.This series is reader friendly and Johansen makes it easy if you missed a few installments...

When Eve gets a burned skull in a box, she knows that she has to give this skull a real face, especially when Michael, her son, insists on it as well.What she doesn't know is that the skull is the beginning of a new set of troubles for Eve and her family.

When they open it they find a charred skull partially destroyed by a bullet. Eve, urged on by her six year old son, Michael, feels compelled to reconstruct it but is absolutely astonished wh...
  • Donna Hines
    Iris Johansen truly knows how to up the anty and take no prisoners and this is proof the magic is still with her in Shattered Mirror.The mirror of course is very significant to the story and Eve knows that reconstruction is more than just piecing back together a body.Ok, but still I would shite if I found a skull (just sayin') girl must have nerves of steel.Action galore with suspense around every corner this is sure to attract the most hardened ...
  • Cami
    I was lucky enough to receive and ARC copy thanks to Goodreads and St. Martin’s Press. Thank you! This is #23 of the Eve Duncan Series and THIS is how you write a book #23. (Janet Evonovich should take note…although I don’t care if she does, after reading her last Stephanie Plum book, her writing is dead to me now.) I really like these books. I love how not all the characters are in each book, but are usually mentioned. Iris weaves a great ...
  • Carole
    Thank you to St. Martin's Press and NetGalley for an advance e-copy of Shattered Mirror by Iris Johansen in exchange for an honest review. This novel is 23rd in the series with Eve Duncan, forensic sculptor. Because this was my first in this series, I felt that I was missing necessary information from the previous books and I had trouble catching up. This is not a standalone novel. The story starts with a suspenseful delivery of an unknown skull ...
  • Jamie
    Iris Johansen is one of my favorite authors and Shattered Mirror is now on the top of my list of books by her that I loved reading. Eve Duncan receives a mysterious box on her front step that has a shattered mirror in it. Under the shattered mirror is a skull that has a bullet wound and was the victim of a fire. As Eve works on her reconstruction, the mystery begins to unravel, family and friends (Cara and Darcy) become involved and the plot twis...

The identity of the skull is revealed and we now take an action packed journey to catch a killer. If you’re a real fan of the Eve Duncan series you’ll love this book.

  • Monica
    I received this book as part of a giveaway. Initially, I was excited to receive the book since I had read "And Then You Die..." and "No One to Trust" in high school and had enjoyed them very much. This book is in a much different vein. The first couple that I read were spy-thrillers (with the inclusion of a romantic element, but I found them enjoyable for the spy storyline). "The Shattered Mirror" is more psychic-suspense and definitely not up my...
  • Vicky
    In my review of Night and Day , I commented that Eve Duncan’s unborn child showed indications of having ‘special’ talents. Well, in Shattered Mirror we all get to find out what ‘special’ talent that Eve’s six-year-old son, Michael, possesses. I’m not going to tell you what is, you will have to read the book to find out, but what I will say is that I’m a bit disappointed in the outcome. I was hoping maybe for something like, x-ray...

    A complex enigmatic tapestry of danger and suspense…This is the twenty-third book in the Eve Duncan series that can be read as a stand-alone.We rarely give thought to the significance of things we chose not to do, that we pass up for various reasons. Sometimes it’s the things you don’t do that can lead to unimaginable consequences. That’s what Eve Duncan, the renown forensic sculptor, must face as she’s haunted by a choice she made not ...

But dark forces are operating not far from her home and soon everyone she loves is under the threat of a mad killer seeking revenge. This is by far the best Eve Duncan book that I have ever read!

  • Tom Donaghey
    SHATTERED MIRROR by Iris Johansen is the number 23 in the Eve Duncan series. I know I’ve read one or two of these in the past and must have liked them, but I can’t say the same for this outing. While the plot had some holes in it (why Sylvie for one) there was more than enough action to make the story move pretty quickly. On the negative side I almost gagged from all the schmaltz going on between the characters. Does anyone every only have he...

  • Randygirl
    I received an ARC of this book. I am a long-time reader of Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan series. When I started reading, I was not entirely enthusiastic as the setting is one Johansen has used repeatedly. I should have known not to worry about boredom. Although the setting and most characters were familiar, Johansen has a gift for making her characters appealing, putting them in peril and getting them, in an extremely convoluted way, back out again....

  • Jessica
    Thank you Net-galley , St Martin's Press and Author for an advance copy of Shattered Mirror. This is an Eve Duncan book! I love this series. I have read almost all of them, I think I am missing one out of the 23 books. It is so hard for me to write this review due to not wanting to give away any spoilers. This book sucked me in from the first page and like all other Eve books left me wanting so much more. This is a series I hope never ends becaus...
  • Pamela
    I loved this book . I cannot believe it is book twenty three of the series. This was an edge of your seat book from the first few sentences. Someone wants Eve and her family to pay.! Some skulls are way to damaged to repair, from say an explosion. This man hiding in the dark outside her home resents her for not doing the job..It is fast paced, but so much goes on, with numerous characters. Eve, and Joe, Michael , Cara, Darcy, the Russian mob gran...
