Smokescreen by Iris Johansen
Smokescreen published on Tuesday, July 30th, and I’m excited to read this one! Thank you to @grandcentralpub #partner for my copy. This is book 26 of the Eve Duncan series. If you’ve read any books in the series, let’s chat! I would love to hear your thoughts. This would be a new series to me!
Here’s the details on this one from the book: A journalist shows up on Eve Duncan’s doorstep with a plea for help. Jill Cassidy has just come from a small African village with a heart wrenching story: half the villagers–many of them children–have been killed in a horrific attack by guerilla soldiers, the bodies burned beyond recognition. Now, the families desperately need Eve’s help to get closure and begin to heal.
But when Eve arrives in the remote jungle, she begins to suspect that Jill’s plea may have been a cover story for a deeper, more sinister plot. Isolated and unsure who she can trust, Eve finds herself stranded in an unstable country where violence threatens to break out again at any moment and with only her own instincts to rely on if she hopes to get home to her family alive.
Happy Friday, everyone! We made it through another week!
