Eve Duncan has turned down the job twice already. Her skill and devotion in identifying murder victims and helping bring their killers to justice may be world-renowned. But Eve works exclusively for law enforcement and the families of the innocent, and the man on the other end of the phone is many thingsÑnone of them law-abiding or innocent.One of the worldÕs most wanted men, little is really known about Luis Montalvo except that he is extraordinarily dangerous and that he never takes no for an answer. Now he wants EveÕs help in the worst way. For he believes they have something in commonÑand heÕs about to prove it with a grisly warning.Eve will leave everything and everyone behind, even the man she trusts and loves the most, Atlanta detective Joe Quinn, to travel to MontalvoÕs luxurious armed compound in the Colombian jungle to identify the skull he has recovered. She has agreed to this devilÕs bargain to save an innocent family, but also for a reason she canÕt admit to Joe, to the CIA, to anyone. For the man in the jungle has promised to be able to give Eve what she wants most of allÑthe key to unlocking the darkest and most painful mystery of her past.But Eve is in more danger than she can imagine. As she gets closer to identifying the skull, she finds herself caught between two ruthless killers with no way out. Now, with everything on the line, Eve Duncan must make the most chilling choice of all. And if sheÕs wrongÉsheÕs dead.From the Hardcover edition. This 2007 Bantam Paperback is in Good condition.
