In eight days they will take her.

#1 blockbuster bestselling author

Iris Johansen

delivers a thriller that will chill you to the core…

AN ANCIENT CONSPIRACY

It all begins with a painting called Guilt. Eve Duncans daughter, Jane, has no idea why she painted the portrait of the chilling face that now hangs in a Paris gallery. But those who belong to a powerful cult—one that dates back to the time of Christ—know both the face and the significance behind it…

A SHOCKING BETRAYAL

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 Jane, killing without mercy or conscience.

A fateful JOURNEY

From Paris to the Scottish isles to the Holy Land, Jane finds herself in a desperate race against time to unravel the mystery surrounding her painting…and save her own life. Even with Eves help, can she possibly succeed before her time is up?

“Johansen keeps readers on the edge of their seats.”—Booklist 

Review:

"Having injected vampires into 2009's Blood Game, the previous Eve Duncan forensics thriller, bestseller Johansen introduces cryptotheology — the madeup religious stuff of Dan Brown — into this equally outlandish sequel. When Jane MacGuire, Eve's adopted daughter, exhibits her paintings at a Paris gallery, one of Jane's pieces, a creepy portrait titled Guilt, prompts a charge of blasphemy from a dangerous cult. Nailing the dead body of one of Jane's friends to a cross shows the cult members mean business. Last seen in 2006's Killer Dreams, John MacDuff and Jock Gavin show up at Jane's door to protect her. Later Seth Caleb, the mysterious is-he-or-isn't-he vampire from Blood Game, joins the team. An action-packed search to uncover Jane's link to the cult and find a priceless religious artifact takes Jane and company across Europe — a journey that allows little focus on Eve and even less on her trademark forensic sculpting. 500,000 first printing. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Number-one New York Times bestselling author Iris Johansen delivers a thriller that will chill you to the core: Eve Duncans adopted daughter Jane has been targeted by a mysterious cult who has decided that she has only eight days to live

Eve Duncan and her adopted daughter, Jane Macguire, are pitted against the members of a secretive cult who have targeted Jane and have decided that she will be their ultimate sacrifice. In eight days they will come for her. In eight days, what Jane fears the most will become a reality. In eight days, she will die. It all begins with a painting that Jane, an artist, displays in her Parisian gallery. The painting is called “Guilt” and Jane has no idea how or why she painted the portrait of the chilling face. But the members of a cult that dates back to the time of Christ believe that Janes blasphemy means she must die. But first, she will lead them to an ancient treasure whose value is beyond price. This elusive treasure, and Janes death, are all that they need for their power to come to ultimate fruition. With Eves help, can Jane escape before the clock stops ticking?
