Two Nights by Kathy Reichs is a stand-alone novel, not part of the Temperance Brennan series. Meet Sunday Night, ex-cop and ex-marine, a woman with secrets and and plenty of issues that date back to her childhood.
When a local matriarch's daughter and grandson are killed in a bomb blast, the terrorists take her granddaughter Stella. It isn't clear whether or not the girl has been killed or is being held captive--all leads have dried up, no body has been found . Sunnie is hired to find out what happened to the girl and rescue her if she is still alive. Even is Stella is dead, Opaline Drucker wants those responsible brought to justice.
Sunnie has some experience with cults and hopes to find Stella alive, but discovering more about the cult and its leaders becomes a convoluted path.
Sunnie needs assistance and gets it from her brother Gus. The backstory of Sunnie and Gus influences the plot in several ways, and I'd like to know more of his story.
