Eve Duncan became a forensic sculptor after the disappearance of her daughter, whose remains were discovered - decomposed beyond recognition. In her work, she reconstructs the faces of unidentified victims from bare skulls, propelled by her need to recognize the innocent and support the search for their killers. The sensitive nature of her job often puts her at great personal risk and draws her into other people’s tragedies, as she continues to be haunted by her daughter’s death - and ghost. As the series progresses, Eve uncovers dangerous secrets, confronts murderers, and becomes an adoptive mother to an orphan with a troubled past.
Over the course of the series, Eve Duncan is voiced by several skilled readers, including Jennifer Van Dyke, Elisabeth Rodgers, and Bernadette Dunne. Each accomplished narrator breathes life into the mourning mother and driven artist, while deftly navigating the plot’s ebb and flow of tension and depicting the sharp edges of psychopaths, trained killers, and assorted demons.
