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.

    "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

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "not what I expected"

    Narrator was awesome. However, I expected a Bones novel when I pre-ordered this. So right off I was disappointed. Then I decided to give it a chance. (spoiler alert) I was confused throughout the book by the little side story/diary like monolouge. There was little to connect that to the story itself and it's purpose not being revealed until the last chapter was frustrating. I don't mind some surprise twists (many crime dramas have gotten predictable), but the lack of connection to the monologue left me uninterested in it. Maybe giving it a second listen now that I know it's purpose would be more interesting...but on a first pass it left me a bit apathetic toward the book. Personally, I thinking possible the book would have been better without it. I might have been able to connect better and have more sympathy to the main character had her past been at least hinted at sooner...that connection to her passion for pursuing the case is too important to leave it to the last chapter. Having said all that, at least the storyline was interesting, the dialouge well crafted and the characters developed skillfully.

    It never captured my interest. Couldn't even finish it. Please save your credit for another book.

    "Two Nights"

    This was an awful book. The subject matter both cheesy and offensive as another author seems to want to try to overlay Muslim terrorism over the template of "Christianity."
    Kathy Reichs has been a writer whose books I buy because she has been a steady producer of good tales.
    I will have to rethink buying more of her books after listening to this one..
    Horrible! I wish I could give zero stars!

    Story
    "Kind of hard to warm up to"
    What did you like best about Two Nights? What did you like least?

    Kathy Reichs is a very good writer and I love her Tempe Brennen series, but I found it hard to really like and care about the main characters in this book.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kathy Reichs? Why or why not?

    Yes, and maybe even another one with these characters if it becomes a series, to see if they grow on me.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was just okay.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe - it might make a better movie than book.

    "Not Kathy Reichs Best"

    Having read her past books I looked forward to a new character. This heroine lacked compassion and seemed very flat and predictable. In her interrogations of the young woman found in her motel room I began to feel she was on par with the low life's she was attempting to ensnare. If playing "bad cop" entails holding a gun to a persons head and screaming at them, then I hope this cop is no longer allowed to wear a badge. Likewise I hope this book will be a one write wonder for Ms. Reichs. I wouldn't waste money on a second one.

    Any additional comments?

    It was very hard to listen to this book to the very end. It was confusing and it is not well written. The author uses very short sentences making them sound just like keywords. The main character is too tough and not portrayed realistically. I had problems with focusing on the story, it wasn't gripping at all. The whole book is a big disappointment and I hope there will be no series made out of it.

    The other Reichs books I loved very much. She is one of my favourite authors.
