Kathy Reichs is the author of 18 New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. Her new stand-alone thriller, Two Nights, features a smart, tough heroine named Sunday Night, whose physical and psychological scars have given her a killer instinct and a thirst for justice. After years of running from her dark past and numbing herself to the outside world, Sunnie is pushed out of isolation when a girl has gone missing in the chaos of a bomb explosion. Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn’t she want to be found? In Sunnie’s search to find the answers to these questions, she is forced to confront her own inner demons, as they just might lead her to the truth about what really happened all those years ago.
Reichs is a professor in the department of anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and one of fewer than one hundred forensic anthropologists ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. In addition to her hit crime novels, Reichs’ own life and work are the basis for Bones, one of Fox network’s longest-running series.
“Nobody does forensics thrillers like Kathy Reichs. She’s the real deal.” —David Baldacci
