Book review: Smokescreen by Iris Johansen

Smokescreen by Iris Johansen

In 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 more danger than she knows.

A 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 heart wrenching story: half the villagers--many of them children--have been killed in a horrific attack by guerilla soldiers, the bodies burned beyond recognition. Now, the families desperately need Eve's help to get closure and begin to heal.

But when Eve arrives in the remote jungle, she begins to suspect that Jill's plea may have been a cover story for a deeper, more sinister plot. Isolated and unsure 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 Weekly).

                               MY REVIEW:

Smokescreen (Eve Duncan, #25)Smokescreen by Iris Johansen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It has been awhile since I have read a book from this series. I am behind on the series but I didn't feel like I had to read the series up to this point.
Eve Duncan is a forensic sculptor and she is confronted by a Journalist to please go to a small African village. There was a horrible massacre that happened in the town and most of them children in a schoolroom. So she is asked to reconstruct the skulls of the children so the families have closure.
But once Eve gets there she believes that Jill tricked her to uncover something else or someone else.
As Eve meets the Queen of this village things don't seem to be as they appear. The Queen is not happy with Jill and doesn't seem to want Eve there.
There was so much going on and Eve's life seemed to be in danger which upsets her son and her husband. Her husband is an officer of the law and he goes to Africa to be with Eve and find out exactly what is going on.
I received this book from NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for an honest review.
