Iris Johansen Fans

Iris Johansen's Eve Duncan is going to the movies! Production started in Vancouver, B.C. just last week on The Killing Game, the second book in the Eve Duncan series. Two characters that have become reader favorites: Jane Maguire and Sarah Patrick were introduced in The Killing Game. Laura Prepon (That 70's Show) is playing Eve, and Naomi Judd will play Eve's mother Sandra. The Killing Game is scheduled to air on Lifetime this fall.
