She names her Lisa and creates detailed sketches from memory, hoping that the background scenery will provide a clue as to where she is being held. Meanwhile, Seth Caleb comes back into Jane's life. This time Jane must rescue him and, in the process, comes to realize that treasure comes in many forms. Amid all of the adventure and intrigue is an ecstatic Eve, who has been doubly blessed with a son and the special psychic bond that has grown between them. Fans will enjoy the opportunity to revisit Johansen's much-loved cast.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: A new Eve Duncan translates immediately to big sales and a satisfied audience.

When artist Jane MacGuire connects psychically with a young woman who's being held captive, she discovers that she's the enigmatic Seth Caleb's sister and is swept into rescuing her. Once she's safe, however, Jane becomes the next target in a ploy to force Caleb to kill or see her killed.A kidnap victim who psychically demands Jane's help seems familiar, but it takes Jane a while to connect her to Seth Caleb, a man who both frightens and attracts her. Confronting Caleb with sketches she's "seen" through the girl's eyes, he confirms Lisa Ridondo is his sister and, using her art and Google Earth, the two are able to locate the girl and rescue her. Jane takes Lisa under her wing and brings her back to Scotland, where she and her friends are searching for a long-buried treasure, and Lisa joins the quest. Not convinced the threat to his sister is over, Caleb tries to get to the bottom of why she was kidnapped in the first place, and just when he's fitting the pieces together— ;her captors were trying to leverage him into using his unique, dangerous gifts to kill a target in a way that wouldn't cause suspicion—he learns they've shifted their interest to Jane, believing she and Caleb are lovers. Once they have their hands on her, he must use his wits and gather some of Jane's devoted and resourceful friends in order to save her as well as his would-be victim. Johansen returns to the world of Eve Duncan, Joe Quinn, and Jane MacGuire—suspense with a touch of supernatural—to resounding success and ties up some loose ends and romantic possibilities from past books. The final scene will be especially enjoyable to series fans. Enthralling, entertaining, and completely satisfying. Copyright Kirkus 2017 Kirkus/BPI Communications. All rights reserved.
