Two Nights
Kathy Reichs
July 11,2017

A standalone thriller featuring a “tough-talking, scarred heroine”* from the author of the Temperance Brennan series, the basis for the hit TV show Bones.

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.

Advance praise for Two Nights

“Reichs’ newest heroine, the polar opposite of cerebral Temperance Brennan, is fueled by a well-nigh uncontrollable rage in her thrilling, violent search for a missing girl so much like herself.”Kirkus Reviews

“Brennan fans should appreciate Sunday [Night] . . . the star of this fast-paced series launch from bestseller Reichs. [The finale] seems designed for the big screen.”Publishers Weekly

“The writing is crisp and vivid. . . . The story is cleverly plotted. . . . Reichs’ legion of fans should be encouraged to check out this one.”Booklist

Praise for Kathy Reichs

“I love Kathy Reichs—always scary, always suspenseful, and I always learn something.”—Lee Child

“Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legion of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she’ll garner.”—Sandra Brown

“Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She’s the real deal.”—David Baldacci

“Kathy Reichs writes smart—no, make that brilliant—mysteries.”—James Patterson

“Reichs, a forensic anthropologist, makes her crime novels intriguingly realistic.”—Entertainment Weekly

This tale by Kathy Reichs is a one of a kind amazing read! The leading lady is Sunday Night, a very smart ex-military, retired cop, with a bit of a paranoid side.  She is basically a loner that lets few people into her life after her law enforcement career ended abrutly.  One of those is an old police friend, named Beau, which has a mysterious side job to offer her. The grandmother of a missing girl is paying for answers regarding the tragic accident involving her family, leading to her disappearance. After accepting the lucrative offer, she will find many twists and turns, and that the truth is not at all what it seems.

This novel is a well written mystery that will surely be talked about this year. I am really hoping for the possibility of a movie in our future.  With violence (my favorite), suspense, action, shocking plot twists, and very clever analogies, I fully enjoyed this book.  I will now be busy reading all the rest of Kathy Reich’s work.
