The New York Times bestselling author of Firestorm, Iris Johansen, returns with a psychological thriller so terrifying, so relentlessly paced, it won’t leave you time to catch your breath before the next shock comes. A forensic sculptor is locked in a deadly duel with a serial killer determined to destroy her—one life at a time.
Eve Duncan’s job is to put a face on the faceless victims of violent crimes. Her work not only comforts their survivors—but helps catch their killers. But there is another, more personal reason that Eve Duncan is driven to do the kind of work she does—a dark nightmare from a past she can never bury. And as she works on the skull of a newly discovered victim, that past is about to return all over again.
The victim is a Jane Doe found murdered, her face erased beyond recognition. But whoever killed her wasn’t just trying to hide her identity. The plan was far more horrifying. For as the face forms under Eve’s skilled hands, she is about to get the shock of her life. The victim is someone she knows all too well. Someone who isn’t dead. Yet.
Instantly Eve’s peaceful life is shattered. The sanctuary of the lakeside cottage she shares with Atlanta detective Joe Quinn and their adopted daughter Jane has been invaded by a killer who’s sent the grimmest of threats: the face of his next victim. To stop him, Eve must put her own life in the balance and question everything and everyone she trusts. Not even Quinn can go where Eve must go this time.
As the trail of faceless bodies leads to a chilling revelation, Eve finds herself trying to catch a master murderer whose grisly work is a testament to a mind warped by perversion and revenge. Now she must pit her skills against his in a showdown where the stakes are life itself—and where the unbearable cost of failure will make Eve’s own murder seem like a mercy killing.

Blinding Track 12
Designed inspired by Track #12 from Florence + the Machine’s album “Lungs.” This image is a vintage embroidery design modified by me. I am not sure of the date, probably the 1930s.
The song lyrics have to do with entrapment and release, but also dreaming. With a nod towards the flame haired singer Florence Welch, the creator and singer for Florence + the Machine the girl in my piece has ginger colored hair.
This piece is from a series of fourteen hand embroidered pieces modified and stitched by Mark Bieraugel based on the album “Lungs” by Florence + the Machine.

A study of Atlantic slavery generated by the visual arts. It considers in detail four "sites" which have generated particularly influential imagery: the middle passage; flight/escape; slave torture/punishment; and the popular imagery which evolved around Stowe's classic abolition text, "Uncle Tom's Cabin". Abolition exploded in the 1780s as an international propaganda movement. From then on until the end of the Civil War the slavery debate generated a deluge of materials. Every conceivable visual resource was drawn upon, including paintings, sculptures, prints, textiles, maps, ceramics, jewellery, needlework, "tableaux vivantes", and theatrical performance. Different forms require different ways of reading and this text is, of necessity, theoretically experimental and essentially interdisciplinary. Developments in trauma theory, Holocaust studies, Diaspora studies, even cartography, are drawn upon. The book thinks about how the West has remembered slavery through its visual art, but beyond this it demands that we reconsider how slavery is culturally constructed in the West now. The study consequently ends by asking what institutions, rituals, narratives and images we have decided are the "right" way of remembering slavery.
