Two Nights by Kathy Reichs

Her name is Sunday Night.  She ran from an abusive past and chose the day she was found as her name.  She's built a new life but it's not like anyone else's.  She lives on island that is accessible only by boat.  She has a squirrel for a pet.  And she likes it that way.  But when a grandmother asks her to find her missing granddaughter, Sunnie agrees.  She feels a connection to the young missing girl...

Random House Publishing and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 11th.

This is a creepy story of people who want to kill the Muslims in the states and send a message they are not wanted here.  A young man who is sadistic and cruel leads the group and he's got the girl that survived the bombing.  He's honing her to be part of his network by torturing her.

Sunnie chases the clues from the past to the present and gets close to catching him but never succeeds.  She's killing off the ones sent to kill her but that doesn't save the girl.  When the bombers have all been disposed of, the grandmother takes her off the case.  She doesn't want her to pursue the enemy far enough to get the granddaughter killed.  But trying to stop Sunnie from following through is impossible.

There's more than one crazy person in the scheme and the ending is take down is a major operation.  I didn't find the ending satisfying but I did find Sunnie interesting.  I'd be interesting in reading the next book and seeing what kind of case she gets then.
