    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A childhood spent in a dangerous cult left Sunday Night never with a bone-deep instinct for survival that's kept her alive into adulthood but left her mostly friendless. Forced into early retirement from the police force due to an injury, Sunnie retreats from an outside world she doesn't trust and sees little use for, until a wealthy woman contacts her with a plea: her teenage granddaughter has been missing since the day of a bombing near a Jewish school. Suspecting the work of religious extremists, she believes Sunnie's unique first-hand experience may make her the ideal woman to track down the girl and bring her captors to justice. As much as Sunnie would rather stay isolated, she won't turn her back on an innocent life in jeopardy -- not when her haunted past cries out for her to take action"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2017 May #1

Here's a stand-alone novel by the author of the Temperance Brennan mysteries. Sunday "Sunnie" Night is a former cop living in the Charleston, South Carolina, area. When a friend asks her to look into the year-old disappearance of a 15-year-old girl, Sunnie hesitates. But when she learns that the missing girl's family was murdered and that their killer has never been found, her sense of outrage won't let her stay away. Soon she's in Chicago, where the tragedy occurred, trying to turn a cold case hot again. Sunday Night is a different character from Tempe Brennan; she's a wisecracker, she's sarcastic, she's secretive about her past. On the other hand, she shares Brennan's hard-edged approach to people who get in her way and her strength of conviction. The story is cleverly plotted (Reichs has always had a knack for building good plots), and the writing is crisp and vivid, as though telling a fresh story about a new character has energized the author. Reichs' legion of fans should be encouraged to check out this one. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.

In what's billed as a stand-alone, the creator of the hugely popular Temperance Brennan comes up with her first new protagonist since her 1997 debut. Sunday Night is the classic tough woman who won't look back, and she's just about got it licked when an exploding bomb leaves a girl missing. Sunnie is asked to find whether the girl is dead, kidnapped, or gone of her own accord, and she agrees because it might help her work out her own past.

Sunday Night, the star of this fast-paced series launch from bestseller Reichs (Speaking in Bones and 17 other Temperance Brennan forensic thrillers), retreats to isolated Goat Island near Charleston, S.C., after an injury ends her police career. As a child, she barely escaped from a cult that claimed her mother's life. Concerned about her well-being, her former foster father, cop Perry "Beau" Beaumonde, entices her out of seclusion by asking her to look for a teenage girl whose wealthy grandmother believes she was kidnapped by a cult. Sunday enlists her twin brother, August ("Gus"), in a search that leads to Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., in pursuit of homegrown terrorists. Reichs sacrifices character development for unrelenting action, but Brennan fans should appreciate Sunday—a self-sufficient, tough-talking, scarred heroine—and the unquestioningly loyal, quietly lethal Gus. An explosive finale at the Kentucky Derby seems designed for the big screen. Agent: Jennifer Rudolph-Walsh, William Morris Endeavor. (July)
