Two Nights - Kathy Reichs

This is a new character for the author Kathy Reichs.  Sunday Night is a tough ex military girl, who now is living the quiet life on a remote island, minding her own business and busy feeding her squirrel.  Called in to help find a missing girl, she finds herself being the target and being stalked, chased and shot at.

 I wasn't quite convinced by this story, maybe the cheesy name put me off, but it seemed all a bit unbelievable, shoot ups in a hotel leaving dead criminals, where she seems to be able to explain to the local police in a couple of minutes.   Somehow the trail of dead bodies would not seem that hard to track down to the hired gun.  Maybe I am cynical, but it felt a bit like it was an attempt at creating a Jack Reacher type character and didn't quite ring true for me.  3/5

You are probably right. Many characters are derivative these days.
