Blurb: #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs steps beyond her classic Temperance Brennan series in a new standalone 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.
As a fan of Reich’s Temperance Brennan series, as well as the television show ‘Bones”, I was excited to see this new stand alone book introducing an entirely new cast of characters.
Sunday Night is a woman with a past. Scarred emotionally and physically. Living like a hermit on Goat Island, just a tiny spit of land off the coast of Charleston. No cars, no amenities.
We know she is former military and former Charleston PD. And that is about all we know about her. When she is contacted about a missing person case, the details are a little too close to her past, which is why she says yes and goes full throttle after who ever has taken this girl and killed innocent people.
In all honesty I have to say I was disappointed in this one. All the ingredients were there, but there was a shallowness to the information on the characters and their motivations.
This book is set for July 11th release. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
