Sunday Night is a woman withdrawn from the outside world.
At six feet tall with a facial scar, she claims to feel
nothing and need no one. Burying her tortured past, she
lives alone on Goat Island, off the coast of Charleston,
South Carolina, with access only by private boat. When
contacted by a wealthy widow about locating her missing
granddaughter, Sunnie is reluctant to agree. Learning the
circumstances of the disappearance of Stella Bright
following a bomb explosion a year ago in Chicago, Sunnie
takes on the investigation. Is Stella dead, or is she being
held captive somewhere?
After a year, the Chicago cops have given up looking for
Stella. But the tenacious, tough and savvy Sunnie, with an
aversion to authority, stirs things up when she starts
digging deeper into the case. And the more she uncovers
about Stella, the bombing and the current situation, the
more trigger flashes of memories of her own past she
experiences. No matter how much the cops want her to let it
go, Sunnie is determined to solve the whereabouts of
Stella. However, she has no idea how far her investigation
will lead until it\'s almost too late.
TWO NIGHTS by Kathy Reichs is an awesome stand-alone
crime thriller by the bestselling author of the Temperance
Brennan forensic thriller series. Sunday Night is an
unlikely heroine; a distinctive individual dealing with a
horrific past, who interacts grudgingly with a cast of
unique characters in an imaginative and cannily devised
plotline. Tense and tightly woven twists and turns are
expertly developed to keep readers totally enthralled.
Interspersed with chapters of a captive girl\'s shocking
ordeal of torture, I could not stop reading TWO NIGHTS as
it kept me guessing the outcome, which doesn\'t happen
often. TWO NIGHTS is a definite must-read for thriller
aficionados, as well as fans of Kathy Reichs.
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.
