A childhood spent in a dangerous cult left Sunday Night with a bone-deep instinct for survival. It's kept her alive--and 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. Sunnie would rather stay isolated, but she won't turn her back on an innocent life in jeopardy.

Have never read anything by Kathy Reichs or watched a single episode of 'Bones' so I was quite surprised by a this stand-alone fast-paced thriller. A solid four stars in every regard as it didn't meander aimlessly but stuck to the storyline. The only downside was the lack of originality in the story which was similar to Taylor Stevens' 'The Informationist' and her (Taylor's) own life story. The other trope she uses comes straight from the Icelandic writer Ragnar Jonasson in 'Nightblind.'

Read this in 1 sitting. Did not read any of other story. Still can't figure out how "hotpants' was important to the story.
The character Sunday Night was good, just didn't like the name.
Never did get a feel for the drama that was supposed to happen. (it did @ the end) .
Not as thrilling as some of her other books.
However well written.

Usually I am a huge fan of Kathy Reichs. However, I didn't care for the style of integrating the two plots.

Definitely a page turner. The two stories at once was not my favourite, so I mainly focused on the main plot line.

This is a stand alone book by Kathy Reichs. I love her previous books with Temperance Brennan. This was a good read but I found the main character a little intense. It will be interesting to see if she creates a new series.

Couldn’t get interested in either the main character or the plot. Not up to the author’s usual standard.

I've never read one of the Temperence Brennan books (shocking, I know). I decided to try this one out when a coworker recommended it. I really liked the strong female protagonist, as well as the numerous twists and turns. An enjoyable plot-driven thriller that also managed to be an interesting character study.

I enjoyed reading this book. Could not put it down therefore read it in one evening. I found the wordplay between the characters fast paced, entertaining and funny.
