Publisher's Summary

It all begins with a painting called Guilt. Eve Duncan’s daughter, Jane, has no idea why she painted the portrait of the chilling face that now hangs in a Paris gallery. But the members of a cult that dates back to the time of Christ know both the face and the significance behind it. They believe that Jane must die – when the moment is right, and not an instant before she leads them to an ancient treasure whose value and power are beyond price. But for now they target those close to her, killing without mercy or conscience.
Jane’s journey takes her from Paris to Scotland to a cave in the Holy Land, as she fights with all she has to save her life. Even with Eve’s help, can she possibly escape before the clock stops ticking?
Eight Days to Live begins with an ancient conspiracy and a shocking betrayal, but will it end with the death of Eve Duncan and the sacrifice of Jane MacGuire? With Eight Days to Live, number-one New York Times best-selling author Iris Johansen delivers a thriller that will chill you to the core.
Investigate another case with Eve Duncan.

It was Ok

This was not as good as some of her other novels. Also with the narrator being female and there being so many male characters the reading of it seemed a little off. I may have enjoyed reading it more than listening to it.

Extremely disappointed

I have long disliked the females of this series and have zero idea why the men adore them. What keeps me coming back is the men; sexy, dark, interesting, dangerous. My new fave is Seth...unfortunately Jane who asked him to help her keeps telling him to get lost. I wanted to smack her and tell her, "Lady, never heard of gratitude?"

Jane is rude and takes completely after her adopted mother Eve, who continues to put the people she says means "everything" to her, in danger!

Iris--woman CAN be strong and not be bad mannered. They can also possess common sense. Really.

Clich?s Galore

I wasn't sure if this was a comedy at first. It made me laugh out loud at some parts. The fiesty red haired, emerald eyed heroine, the dark and brooding anti-hero's (all secretly in love with the heroine and all Scottish), the bizzare back story, mixed with a few supernatural powers and a bit of religious theme thrown in for good luck. Clich?s galore.
The narration was fine apart from the Scottish accents. It seems all Scots have an upward inflection at the end of everything they say which turns everything into a question. This got very irritating. The lady did a very passable English accent until she said 'tomAto' rather than 'tomato', which is a basic error.
I only got as far as the first download, by which time the comedic value had worn off and, quite frankly, I didn't care if they all got caught and the whole lot of them came to a grizzly end. It would have been a kindness.
Maybe if you were reading this the story wouldn't have seemed so silly and the characters so annoying, but listening to it was not a pleasure, more of a chore.
