Title: Two Nights
Author: Kathy Reichs
#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.
Received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is actually the first book by Kathy Reichs that I’ve ever read, and I found it to be an enjoyable read, though one that made my skin crawl from time to time.
Sunday Night is the kind of character I like to read about in these types of novels. She is flawed, and tough, and even though she does briefly allow her trauma to influence her situations she steps up when its needed.
Her brother Gus is an intriguing character because he seems to have gone the opposite of her in reaction to past experiences
The plot of this book is a slow burn I can truly appreciate as not everything was revealed at once but it left me captivated long enough to keep on reading. The motivation of the bombers made my skin crawl, because it felt all too real in the world we live in today, with all that’s been happening in the world.
Kathy Reichs builds a world full of danger, but justice, with wounds left behind and it was quite a nice read.
