If you thought Iris Johansen couldn’t top the simmering tensions that made Stalemate a bestseller, wait till you read the sequel.
Quicksand begins a year after forensic sculptor Eve Duncan recreated the skull of Luis Montalvo’s wife. In exchange, he gave Eve the name of her daughter’s killer. The Colombian arms dealer also nearly managed to make Eve forget her love for Detective Joe Quinn, the ex-SEAL devoted to filling the hole in her still-grieving heart. Even though Bonnie comes to her in her dreams, Eve needs closure—and now, at last, she may get it.
Joe and Luis have put aside their rivalry to hunt Henry Kistle, a former army Ranger-turned-killer who has taken another child. The FBI is using a psychic to help in the search, but Eve and Joe are skeptical, preferring instead to play cat and mouse with Kistle themselves. The problem is that his taunting phone calls, compounded by more “visits” from Bonnie warning that Joe will be “pulled down into quicksand,” are torture to Eve. And while it seems that Luis is cooperating with Joe, she knows both men, macho to a fault, want to be the one to bring her Kistle’s head on a plate.Which means she’s the one who will have to do it…or die trying.
