I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not and do not accept monetary compensation for reviews. These are my original thoughts, feelings and ideas.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A standalone thriller featuring a “tough-talking, scarred heroine”* from the author of the Temperance Brennan series, the basis for the hit TV show Bones.
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.
Kathy Reichs has been apart of my reading world since high school. This is the first book that I've read by this author that doesn't feature the wonderful Tempe. While it took some getting used to for me, I wasn't disappointed in the least.
Sunday Night has survived her fair share of near death experiences. Content to live on her island in peace, she doesn't welcome the intrusion of being asked to consult on an investigation. The reason she is remotely interested, this investigation hits a little too close to home.
The author takes you on a ride that leaves you guessing until the end. Joining Sunday in her mission to see this case to the end and also deal with the ghosts that continue to haunt her.
Even though it says this book is a standalone, I can't help but hope that we'll see Ms. Night again.
