"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

“Kathy Reichs writes smart – no, make that brilliant – mysteries that are as realistic as non-fiction and as fast-paced as the best thrillers about Jack Reacher or Alex Cross.” (James Patterson)
“I love Kathy Reichs – always scary, always suspenseful, and I always learn something.” (Lee Child)
"Kathy Reichs continues to be one of the most distinctive and talented writers in the genre. Her legion of readers worldwide will agree with me when I declare that the more books she writes, the more enthusiastic fans she'll garner." (Sandra Brown)
"Brennan fans should appreciate Sunday…the star of this fast-paced series launch from bestseller Reichs…[the] self-sufficient, tough-talking, scarred heroine…seems designed for the big screen” (Publishers Weekly)
“Reichs' newest heroine, the polar opposite of cerebral Temperance Brennan, is fueled by a well-nigh uncontrollable rage in her thrilling, violent search for a missing girl so much like herself.” (Kirkus Reviews)
About the Author
Kathy Reichs is the author of nineteen New York Times bestselling novels and the coauthor, with her son, Brendan Reichs, of six novels for young adults. Like the protagonist of her Temperance Brennan series, Reichs is a forensic anthropologist—one of fewer than one hundred and fifteen ever certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology. A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the Fox network.

In an effort to help Sunday, her foster father introduces her to a Grande dame of Charleston, whose only child and grandson were killed a year before in a terrorist bombing. Her only granddaughter, Stella, is missing. Sunday immediately forms an emotional bond with the missing 15 year old and agreed to search for her and the terrorists who killed her family.
The story skips from Chicago to L. A. to Washington D.C., and finally to my home state of Kentucky (Louisville). I was excited to read about Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.
There were many remarkable characters in this story, especially Gus aka August Night, Sunday's twin brother - she's white with red hair, he's black with green eyes. Their backstory is amazing and I long to know more about them.
The story had many twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. Even when I was crying at what I perceived was the end, Ms. Reichs throws another curveball.
I know this book is touted as a stand-alone novel, but I sincerely hope Ms. Reichs will decided to continue on with the story of the two Nights.
Reichs drops Temperance Brennan for a new protagonist, or perhaps two. Sunday Night, a damaged woman who is former cop, former military, is fleeing her past. Then she is offered the chance to redeem herself and perhaps heal herself by finding a child kidnapped (or killed) during a terrorist attack. Darker than the Brennan books, Sunday is a compelling personality. You may find yourself reading just to discover Sunnie’s deepest secrets. Still, the mystery is worthy of Reichs’ considerable talent in plotting and characterization.
At the end of the book there are still questions to uncover leading one to anticipate a second (and third) outing for this detective.
5 of 5 stars
Sunnis had a rough childhood, horror filled combat in the military and then injured and put on disability as a police woman.
Now she lives Aline on an isolated island. When called upon, she works as a private investigator.
This story is complex, shows her strengths as a PI and involved finding a child that had been kidnapped by the JJ cult. Thus, many of her unsettled memories of her childhood rise to the surface. The book is well written, keeps the writers attention so that one desires another book with a mystery for her (and Gus) to solve with some guidance from their adopted dad.
