    This is not Tempe Brennan!

    It started like any day for Sunday “Sunnie” Night, until Perry “Beau” Beaumonde – a cop - knocked on her door. Sunnie was an MP until she was asked to retire. Because of her unconventional life, the scars she acquired in the military not helping, she lives almost like a hermit. But her skills as a Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape are needed as an incident points to terrorists or bombers. I’ve read most of Kathy Reichs’ books with Tempe Brennan, I couldn’t wait to see how this new venture turned out, I went into it with an open mind, and I’m ambivalent on the end result. The book began very abruptly, the characters were not situated until very much later, and even then, there wasn’t much to work with. TWO NIGHTS felt as if there had been books prior to this one. I also found Sunnie a rather unpleasant character, cynical, sarcastic, often bordering on rude; I just felt no connection or sympathy towards her, and to be honest, I just didn’t like her. What I found odd is that, the secondary characters are rather well fleshed out, but not Sunnie or her brother, Gus, who joins her along the way; he is little more than a shadow. Apart from the fact that she carries a purse, I never quite got the impression that Sunnie was a woman, although I knew that. Most surprising was the writing: the style was choppy, dry – dare I say, arid – and the tone, very masculine. It almost seemed as if the story were told to a hip hop beat, which will certainly please some readers, but I prefer a flowing style. Once in a great while, I saw glimpses of the Kathy Reichs I love dearly, but they were definitely few and far between. The story was excellent, but the short, choppy sentences, the colourless style, and a charmless heroine almost ruined it for me. The book structure is awkward, I found the second voice distracting, and some details or revelations came too little too late. The story was interesting, the ending was really great, but what was truly missing was the main character’s lack of definition, of humanity. I love Kathy Reichs, and I will continue to read her books, but I hope that, if she wants to make a series out of Sunnie’s adventures, the author should rethink her approach to her character and her writing style, which was definitely the most puzzling aspect of this book. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    Who wrote this?

    Having read all her other books I was expecting a continuation of those advendures. This deviated from the other Kathy Reichs series. For that reason I was very disappointed. This did not even sound like her writing either. If the book was not promoted as a Kathy Reichs book I would have given it a three because it was an ok story. But not what I would have liked.
