Review: Two Nights by Kathy Reichs

Two Nights
Two Nights

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.  

My Review:

This book was sent to me from Simon & Schuster Canada for an honest review. 
In Two Nights Kathy Reichs  introduces a new heroine who has the unusual name of Sunday Night. She is very different from Temperance Brennan in Kathy Reichs long running series. Although they are both strong independent women who let nothing stand in their way.
Sunday, who is an ex soldier and ex cop and has the scars to prove it, physically and mentally, is hired by the grandmother of a missing teenage girl who was present at a suspected terrorist attack that killed her Mother and brother and may have been abducted by the bombers, to find the perpetrators and her granddaughter.
As her investigation progresses she encounters much violence while hunting down the people responsible for the bombing. She also enlists the help of her twin brother while trying to stay on the good side of local cops. Tracking down leads takes them to many different places including Washington and The Kentucky Derby. 
As time is running out on another terrorists attack, Sunday races to find the missing teenager before it's too late to save her.
Just like with all of Kathy Reichs books, the writing is well paced with lots of dialogue, which can get you through this book very quickly. Sunday Night can give Kinsey Millhone a run for her money. This could be a great new detective series. Another winner for Kathy Reichs.
