Two Nights: A Novel
Sunday Night (aka Sunnie) is damaged — not just by what she went through while in the military or even her debilitating injury from when she was a cop. There is something more, something below the surface, that keeps her a recluse on an island surrounded by motion detectors and well-armed people. She is perfectly content in her self-made asylum when the one person who can influence Sunnie, her foster father Beau, brings her a case she can’t refuse. Opaline Drucker has a dead daughter and grandson, a missing granddaughter, a thirst for revenge, and great wealth. And Sunnie has a past that makes her go after this particular case like a fox on a pheasant’s nest. Those responsible for the deaths and missing girl are ruthless but not as smart as Sunnie and her brother, Gus, who helps with the case.
Kathy Reichs certainly has the credentials to write this story, and her expertise shows. The investigation details are great and entirely credible. The dialogue is snappy and the characters are interesting. All that said, the main character of Sunday Night is not likable and often annoying. That makes this a tough read, but thriller/mystery fans will probably like it.
