Book description……….

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs steps beyond her classic Temperance Brennan series in a new standalone thriller—featuring a smart, tough, talented heroine whose thirst for justice stems from her own dark past.

Meet Sunday Night, a woman with physical and psychological scars, and a killer instinct. . . .

Sunnie has spent years running from her past, burying secrets and building a life in which she needs no one and feels nothing.

But a girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunnie’s help.

Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn’t she want to be found?

It’s time for Sunnie to face her own demons—because they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.

Review by 2shay…….

I have watched every episode of Bones, more than once, but this is my first book by Kathy Reichs. If this book is any indication, the mantra of all book lovers will stand true…the book is always better. This book caught me a little off guard. I read a lot, and books that drag me into a story this completely are rare. I loved every page.

Having said that, let me explain a little. I wasn’t sure at first that I was going to like Sunday Night. Sunnie has a lot of issues. She’s anxious, angry or both…all the time. It was a little disturbing. As I read further, her oddness became understandable and a little endearing. By the end of the book, I wanted to know more of her story and ride shotgun on more of her adventures. She’s a hell of a traveling companion.

There is a delightful amount of detail as Sunnie tracks down the missing girl, lost after her family is killed in a bombing. As she uncovers clue after clue, learning more and more about the fundamentalist cult behind the bombing and the loss of the young girl, we also learn more about the horrors of being raised in that culture…by Sunnie herself. It’s a fascinating journey leading to an action packed, thrilling ending that will leave you breathless!

One more thing. The title, Two Nights, is a double entendre that you will have to figure out for yourselves!

  1. Outstanding review, 2shay! I’ve read a lot of the “Temperance Brennan” books, but am very intrigued by this standalone — especially after reading your review.
