#review Two Nights by Kathy Reichs
I have watched a view episodes of Bones but I have never actually read anything by Kathy Reichs, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book. Going in blind without reading her prior works was actually really good for me considering how well known she is.
Sunday Night – yes that is her real name, was a police officer who took left the police department following an altercation that left a man dead and Sunday with a permanent disability. Now she is virtually a recluse working as PI when the need arises.
Opaline Drucker’s daughter and grandson are killed following a brutal attack and her granddaughter Stella is missing. Sunday is hired to find the missing girl and those responsible for the murders. Is there any chance the girl will even be alive? And if so why was she kept alive?
It was a bit of a slow read and did take me some time to finish and I wasn’t as gripped as I thought I would have been, but I do hope to read from Sunday!
