Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Kathy Reichs steps beyond her classic Temperance Brennan series in a new stand-alone 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.

Very dissapointed, terrible reader

What disappointed you about Two Nights?

The narration was terrible - slurred words. Very distracting

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something by Ray Porter or Dick Hill. I will avoid this narrator.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Coleen Marlo and Kim Mai Guest ?

Someone who didn't slur their words.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Confusion. I had a hard time following this story.

Any additional comments?

I like the Temperance Brennan series. I didn't like this.

Meh. Not up to Par.

I'm sorry to say this stand-alone (hopefully not the start of a new series) was not up to Ms Reichs' Temperance Brennan novels.

Pretty disappointed with the plot, and not that intrigued with the main character. I felt the first third to half of the book raced all over the place with barely any explanation of why, it was confusing.

I didn't notice this wasn't a Brennan book when I got it, although I probably would have anyway. What a bummer to be looking forward to another good read with Tempe and get this. :P

Not plausible

I listened to all of the Bones books and was excitedly waiting for this book on pre-order. Wasn't expecting a new character. Being in law enforcement I found the story improbable in many respects which irks me when I can't at least find some factual events/procedures. Religious fanaticism is real, but detected hints of disdain of organized religion and disdain of anti Muslim sentiment. Sometimes the descriptions of things in minute details are just over kill. The story was all over the place and I really had a hard time connecting from the beginning but stuck with it. Sunday Knight is just too quippy, snarky, bad ass, invincible and the relationship she has with L.E. not realistic. Law enforcement don't interact like this. Maybe being L.E. jades my read on a story line. Same reason I don't watch cop/CSI shows. The voices of male cops and bad guys all sound contrived and red neck.

Unlikeable main character

The main character is one dimensional and unlikeable. The dialogue of endless sarcasm was wearing. Was it worth a credit.

First person egocentric point of view

Story is probably okay .. a little convoluted and warped. Most of the book is our heroine telling about her steps, dedicated to making us see how very cleaver and capable she is. I made it through at 1.25 speed .. it just about made it tolerable. The main narrator had about 2 voices: one frantic (even at 1.0 speed) and the other strained. The whole experience was pretty annoying.

Sunday instead of Temperance

A new character by Kathy Reichs?! - I was intrigued and excited. Having read most everything Reichs, my expectations were high and I was a little disappointed at onset. I kept reading, but like I have done in the past many times, I decided to get the audiobook to see if that would help move the book along. That was a good move! Suddenly Sunday Knight came alive through the narrator's voice and the book became more exciting. If you're a Reichs lover, go ahead and read this one, just don't expect another Tempe. Although I enjoyed reading about Sunday and Gus Knight, I really missed the Reichs' forensics in her Temperance Brennan books.

Sunday Night Is Not Peaceful But Driven

A real departure for Reichs. This novel is about a woman, Sunday Night, who has had a rough life. She is living on Goat Island off the coast of South Carolina and only has company of a squirrel named Bob, and an old man who took her in when she was a kid. You don't find out her story until well into the book but you keep wondering because it sounds very similar to the girl she is hunting for. The whole book is about finding the missing girl, believed to have survived after a bomb exploded. This is a very well written book and it just reels you in. the characters are not soft and loving but are hard edged and all seem to be loners. Sunday is the lead and she is fascinating. She is brave, strong, mad as hell at everyone and everything. I read this in two days because I had to take time out for my own life. the narrator is superb and she is what makes the story so bone chilling. If you like the Temperance Brennan stories, you'll find this one different but still with a strong female investigator. Coleen Marlo and Kim Mai Guest bring their characters to life.

I wanted to like it.

I really wanted to like this book. I love Kathy Reichs' other books and was excited for a new character. But this one just didn't hold me. Maybe if I had been reading it rather than listening to it but I kept getting lost and really didn't understand many of the actions. Why would a super rich woman hire a nobody that's not even a licensed PI? Why would the police even cooperate with an unlicensed PI? It was just too unbelievable. I ended up returning it rather than continue to listen to it.

Good Night

I like the new character and the story. The narration was, however, horrible. Charlestonians should rise up in arms over her mispronounciations and horrible drawls. I look forward to more from Sunday Night but not thus narrator.
