    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...

    As usual, Iris Johansen does a fantastic job with the characters in this book, Eve Duncan and her family (both blood and adopted). I have read every book in the series and not one of them has disappointed me yet!Cara is the main character in this particular book, a talented violinist who featured in an earlier book (this book reads well as a standalone though). Cara is growing up, and that starts to make waves for people around her, as well as fo...

    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...

    This story begins with a burnt skull with a bullet hole wrapped in a nice package with and including a two-sided mirror being left on Eve Duncan's front porch. Because her fey and precocious six-year-old Michael encourages her to restore the skull so that the victim can find her way home, Eve begins something that will lead to incredible danger.Then the story switches to Cara at school with her new roommate former child star Darcy Nichols. Cara i...

    In this 23rd novel in the Eve Duncan series, we meet new characters and see new and different situations, including some special weapons. Once again the story begins with a skull that Eve reconstructs. Michael, her six year old son, calls it Sylvie.

  • Marika Charalambous
    Another great addition to the Eve Duncan series. This latest book focuses on Eve and her close family once again. 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. I liked that in this book, Cara's Russian Mafia grandfather gets to feature quit...

    ***ARC received in exchange for an honest review***New York Times bestselling author, Iris Johansen, does it again in Shattered Mirror, Eve Duncan #23. WOW what a ride this one was. Right from the start you are off and running in this fiction thriller mystery. It gave me chills thinking someone is out there watching in the woods. Eve is thrown back into the mix of things when a skull is left in a pretty package for her. But once she completes the...

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 ...

    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...

Cara and Darcy are roommates at a famous performing arts school. They both have their inner secrets, but have become as close as sisters. But what they don't know is a serial killer may have them in his sights.
  • Patsygermany
    Love this series but I must have several books before this one because it had a lot of new people in it, most of them very evil. Much horror, killing and terror for Eve, Joe and their strange child Michael. Good reading.
  • Arlette Mooney
    I generally like this author and I did enjoy this book. The characters are engaging and real and the plot lines provided good suspense. The introduction of new characters set up a promise of future books. I’m not overly fond of the bouts of fantasy that Johansen’ recent stories have take and was glad that while there were some of that in this story, it was much less than prior books.
  • Janis
    Lots of suspense and angst as Eve and most of her family are threatened.
  • Creeker868
    This series is starting to get repetitive to me. Eve gets another skull, she reconstructs it and identifies whose skull it is. Someone is looking for payback for an imagined slight. Characters include Eve, Eves's son Michael, Eve's husband Joe, Cara a violin virtuoso who is now a member of Eve's extended family, Cara's roommate Darcy, Cara's grandfather and Russian criminal Kaskov, and Jock.
  • Dawn
    I loved this book! While this is one of my first in this series, it most definitely going to be my next binge read! I am completely hooked!A special family, loving children, fierce friends and mom, this story has it all. Including the villain so easy to hate.What an amazing story! Great characters. It's got it all. I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

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.

  • Maureen ~Bitch Can Write A Book
    Absolutely fantastic.From the start it was pure action but what I loved more than the action was the under current of Jock & Cara. This story was filled with so many twists and turns, it was edge of your seat. And what a complicated twisted web it was. Even after all these books in this series I never tire of visiting Eve and Joe and her murder mysteries. And when this one revolves around there son Michael and there extended family in Cara...well...
  • 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...

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 ...
