I have enjoyed reading many of Iris Johansen's novels, steming from the Eve Duncan collection. Any of the novels from Face of Deception and onward would make for excellent movies. All I know, is I wouldn't want the job of casting director as the characters are all strong and to have to pick an actor/actress would be a tough job.

Iris Johansen is a sensational writer. I like how her characters intertwine with each other. I wish she would write more about Jane+Trevour, Kemal+Marisa, and Melis. It would be nice to see how Logan+Sarah and her other characters who came together, have turned out, instead of just hearing about Eve and Joe.

I would love to see another book featuring Logan and Sara. Logan is definitely my favorite of all Iris Johansen's characters.

John Logan settled down with Sara Patrick from "The Search" I personally feel that Sara is his better half & no one will ever fit the bill.

I became an intant fan of Iris Johansen's only a little over a year ago. I defenitely prefer her later books to the earlier ones. Although the wind dancer series was a good call for her because leading to a sequel is always good busines. The majority of her books should be put to script. I would love to see her work on the big screen. Iris Johansen is not afraid to touch emotions as well as to add dangerous, and sexual condintations. I would like to see her writing more about things that touch our souls on a daily basis, (of course without saying, adding her twists). But her discriptive nature could reach us on so many level if we could better relate (or fear to) with her characters and story lines. I know that I would never meet a Logan or Andreas, but I would love to meet Elena, Eve or Sarah. I can relate to them o much better because they are not bigger than life. I hope to read many many more...

What's happening with John Logan. I want to see him settle down with a great woman.

I began reading Ms. Johansen's work around 4 years ago. The Search was my first sample of her work and I loved it. Unfortunately it was accidently given away. On a trip to Barnes and Noble around a month ago I bought and read it again. Since then I purchased and read around 11 more of her books and claim each one in succesion as my favorite. Her books are enticing and alluring. Even to this hard to please 22 year old.

I love the character of Eve Duncan in some of Iris Johansen's books. Although mysteries are not my favorite type of books (I prefer horror), I read the face of Deception when I did not have access to my favorite kind of reading. Well, after reading it, I was hooked. I hope there are many more books featuring Eve Duncan in the future. Great job, Iris. Keep up the good work.

Countdown seems to be a sequel to another book.Which one was before it?.I think I may have missed it!

I am a HUGE fan of Iris Johansen. I have read almost all her books and am looking forward to the next. When "Countdown" came out I went out that week and bought it in hard cover because I could not stand that anticipation! I was just wondering when her next great one would be coming out...?

Please write about Kemal and Marisa and Melis. I would like to know what happen to Hans and to Barney.

Have any of Iris JOhanens books been made into movies? Just finished the Wind Dancre series and the Fatal Tide and a couple of other, all of which would make great movies.

I posted ths once before.. But have seen sever requests after for a "read" list.. So here you go, again:) I had a librarian who was also a HUGE fan and had read to current put the "order to read list" together for me. I am done with all of the books on the list and so far its been in good order.. faces of deception - the killing game - the search - final target - no one to trust - body of lies - dead aim - fatal tide - firestorm - blind alley - countdown - to be released soon all of them seem to introduce a new character and then lead off of them still intertwining the old characters as well..

       Pat posts on 10/3/2005 5:07:15 PM

I too hate the read the books out of sequence. Is there a list somewhere that tells us what year the books were written. That way we can read them all and won't miss any.

       Barb posts on 8/31/2005 1:08:26 PM

Does anyone know the order of the series? I hate reading this stuff out of order. Thanks.

       mswilson posts on 8/21/2005 10:51:34 PM

I love Jane and Trevor, but are you just trying to make a believable relationship with them where sometimes you are unsure of the other or your true feelings, hence the MacDuff situation? I loved his character and his protecctiveness toward Jack. Will he have his own story and his own heroine? (Or was I just reading into too much at the end?)

       jazmyn posts on 8/18/2005 5:39:07 PM

i would read the other books if i were you. it gives you an appreciation for the characters. You get to know them awfully well. All the other ones certainly lead up to this one.

So a few years back, on a whim I picked up THE KILLING GAME, read it and loved it. I think I read THE SEARCH.... little did i know that these books are sort of... a part of a series.. I picked up BLIND ALLEY today, and so I guess my question is.. before I start reading BLINE ALLEY, should I stop and make an effort to read everything in between.. or is it not a big deal? knowing what i know now.. my next few stops at the library will probably be for these other books... but i was junt wondering if i should dig right in..or hold off for a lil bit.
