After eighteen novels in her “Bones” series it would be very easy to write off Kathy Reichs as a one trick pony. “Two Nights” demonstrates that she is much more than the queen of forensic pathology and truly a master of the suspenseful thriller.
Sunnie Night is a real character. Ex forces and ex police she lives alone on a small island with a squirrel for company! She has put a lot of effort into burying her past and running from the secrets in her history.
When she is approached to search for a missing girl the story pulls at Sunnie and she has to help. In the aftermath of a bomb blast that killed her mother and brother Stella has gone missing, possibly kidnapped. As Sunday Night (cringe) starts turning over rocks and getting closer to the culprits both she and Stella are in very real danger.
This is a fast paced thriller with action that moves all over the USA as Sunnie gets closer to those responsible. There is quite a large supporting cast that take a bit of remembering but it adds to the story line. I loved discovering the little titbits about Sunday and the things that made her the person that she is today. It feels like this could be the start of a brand new series from Reich. Here’s hoping!
