#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.
I love Sunnie. Yes her name is really Sunday Night. She is a recluse and lives on Goat Island outside of Charleston. Oh my! Sounds like my dream place. She has had some rough experiences in her life. This has led her to be the recluse she is. I was automatically connected to her. Her toughness and her intellect are not to be tangled with.
Sunnie is drawn out of her paradise by an aristocratic, Charlstonian woman looking for lost granddaughter and the murderers of her family. Sunnie has her work cut out for her. Believe me! She can handle it and she does!
This is a winding tale through many cities and has some pretty brawny and tenacious criminals. I enjoyed how this story almost races you to the finish line. It is well written with a few quirky characters and phrases that catch you off guard.
This did start out as a five star read for me. However, it seamed to drag just a little in the middle. But, that did not last long. It has been years since I have read Kathy Reichs. And for the life of me, I cannot figure out why I stopped. This book just got me hooked on her again!
I received this novel from Netgalley for a honest review.
