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 might just lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.
About the Author
Kathy Reichs takes a break from her normal leading character of Temprance Brennan and introduces us to Sunni Night, former army and police officer injured out of the service due to her reckless behaviour. Reichs masterfully introduces us to her new character, slowly revealing the history that has made Sunni the way she is. A complex story of a missing teenager and a home grown terrorist plot, Sunnie and her brother Gus (Hence the title Two Nights) travel from cost to coast chasing down the bombers who killed 3 innocent people and snatched a fourth to convert to their ideals.
The way that Reich writes this novel is extremely clever, the flashback scenes will leave you wondering if it is the missing girls memories or Sunnies, this is not revealed until close to the end of the novel. The twists and turns are ingenious and written with Reich’s flair for the dramatic keeps you on the edge of your seat. The character of Sunnie is brilliantly written and you can empathise with her wish for solitude. Hopefully there will be further books that will feature Sunnie and Gus, as although they are tough cop types they are easier to relate to than the extremely educated Brennan (not that the Brennan books aren’t brilliant because they are). If you are a Reichs fan this is a must read.
