Publisher's Summary

As a forensic sculptor, Eve Duncan deals in death every day of her life. It's her job. Now that job is about to put not only her own life on the line...but the lives of everyone close to her. It begins with a call from a high-ranking government official. He wants Eve to drop everything and come to Baton Rouge to identify the remains of an unknown murder victim. At first, Eve wants nothing to do with the project. She has finally found peace from her own tragic past, living a quiet life in a small lakeside cottage with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and her adopted daughter, Jane. But a stunning series of seemingly unrelated events is about to upset all that. Suddenly, Eve's hard-won new world is turned upside down, and she flees to Baton Rouge to take on the project of identifying the skeleton. Forced to work in secrecy, given only the sketchiest of information, Eve can't help but wonder if the high-level security that surrounds her is meant to protect her - or imprison her. She hasn't even begun work on the reconstruction when the first death occurs. Someone totally ruthless, someone who can strike anywhere at any time, and with seeming immunity, is determined to put a halt to her work. Soon the questions - and the threats to her own life - begin to mount as Eve realizes she has stumbled into the heart of a chilling conspiracy. There is only one person who can give her the answers she needs. And that is the dead man himself. To survive, Eve must put her life on the line to uncover the deadly secret of his identity and learn the devastating truth buried beneath a body of lies.

Tedious

I found this book to be rather superficial and tedious. It was hard to get excited about either the charaters or the plot.

No lie, it is a stinko-PU

On a scale of bad to worse this nearly tops the list. Boring characters and a plot that just stopped! I felt robbed of the time I wasted listening to it. My mind wandered as I listened and it didn't seem to matter.
