Psychopath Jim Doane brilliantly executed his kidnapping plan re Taking Eve Duncan when she was alone in order for the forensic artist to reconstruct the face of his late child Kevin using his son’s skull. Filled with guilt for canceling plans to be with Eve, her loved ones (police detective Joe Quinn, her adopted child Jane MacGuire and Kendra Michaels) believe she is dead following an explosion while they were Hunting Eve. CIA agent Catherine Ling who owes Eve for finding her missing son is in shock with the news.

However animal whisperer Margaret insists otherwise. Catherine enlists Eve’s father Lee Zander the assassin to join her, Joe, Jane and Kendra in search of their beloved before Doane decides Silencing Eve is prudent.

The final entry in the latest Duncan trilogy is an exciting twisting thriller especially when the focus is on the cat and mouse deadly game between the clever maniac and title abductee’s loved ones. Subplots involving the pursuers add depth to these characters that we all already know but also slow down the prime suspense. Still this is an entertaining ending to another Eve epic.
