Sunday Night is a detective with a checkered past that’s left her with one eye and little patience for other people. She’s become all but a recluse after the altercation that left her maimed and a man dead.
When she’s approached by Opaline Drucker to find a granddaughter that went missing after a bombing, she is determined to find the girl and the people responsible for killing so many. She might just sort out some of her own issues along the way.
Two Nights is a standalone novel, and unless quite a bit more went into backgrounding Sunday I think it might be for the best. She’s not exactly a likeable character–which usually isn’t a problem–except that I didn’t really find her as engaging as Reichs’ characters usually are. Reichs is a master at setting up a good mystery with solid forensic clues, and normally she hits it out of the park with characters as well–just not as much with this one. It’s not a bad book, I just didn’t find Sunday to be a character I’d want to keep reading about.
