Iris Johansen was born on April 7, 1938. She started writing when her two children were in college. A year later she finished her first novel, a contemporary romance. After writing many best-selling historical romances and fantasies, including the Sedikhan and Clanad series, she turned to suspense fiction. Her works include And Then You Die, The Ugly Duckling, Eight Days to Live, Pandora's Daughter, Quicksand, Killer Dreams, Dead Aim, No One to Trust, What Doesn't Kill You, and the Eve Duncan series. Her title Hunting Eve made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013.
In the latest from Johansen, who came to the attention of suspense fans with her best-selling The Ugly Duckling (LJ 1/96), someone is trying to keep research scientist Kate Denby from making a major medical breakthrough.
She wanted to save lives. The killer wanted to end hers.
The first warning was triggered hundreds of miles away. The second warning exploded only yards from where she and her son stood. Now Kate Denby realizes the frightening truth: She is somebody's target.
Danger has arrived in Kate's backyard with a vengeance. And the gifted scientist is awakening to a nightmare world where a ruthless killer is stalking her... where her innocent son is considered expendable... and where the medical research to which she has devoted her life is the same research that could get her killed. Her only hope of protecting her family and making that medical breakthrough is to elude her enemy until she can face him on her own ground, on her own terms—and destroy him.
