Synopsis: 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

My thoughts

Kathy Reichs is back with a  new protagonist and far away from the world of Bones. Sunnie is ex-army and ex-police and is recruited to track down a girl thought to have died in a bombing but yet her grandmother believes her to have been kidnapped. It’s very American PI and yet again a detective with such a depressing back story. I liked it but didn’t feel like it offered anything new. I couldn’t connect with the lead character at all and I personally need that to enjoy a story. 

It’s quite a fast paced book and the chapters are short (always a win for me) but I think in this instance it’s just not one that I could fully enjoy
