Bonnie by Iris Johansen
Eve Duncan and Joe Quinn have a new lead. CIA agent Catherine Ling feels that she owes something to Eve for helping her locate her own lost son. She's investing all of knowledge and talent into finding Bonnie's body and her killer. Catherine is working with Eve's ex-lover and Bonnie's father, John Gallo and they have a suspect bound and ready to be questioned.
Eve and Joe finally arrive to question him, but they find him dead - stabbed in the heart. They know that who killed him isn't far away, so the four of them make haste to chase him down in the bayou. It's foggy out and hard to see, but they do their best. But when Catherine is almost killed by the dark stranger and Joe sees that John hesitated on throwing his knife, it's obvious that John can't be trusted.
Eve has been visited by her daughter's spirit for years and it helps her feel that sense of loss within herself. But when Bonnie visits Eve and tells her that her father is hurting and needs her, Eve realizes that only she and John can find the answer. Their investigation leads them to John's uncle, Ted Danson, who died years ago. John can't believe that Ted faked his own death and Eve just wants justice, regardless of how much John loved his uncle. But as they get closer to the truth, dark secrets and demons come out of the closet, and Eve must lay her own life on the line to get the answers she seeks.
