Product description

The thrilling third novel starring London psychotherapist-turned-detective Frieda Klein--from internationally bestselling author Nicci French Nicci French's "Blue Monday "and "Tuesday's Gone "introduced the brilliant yet reclusive psychotherapist Frieda Klein to widespread critical acclaim, but "Waiting for Wednesday "promises to be her most haunting case yet. Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can't piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents will offer a new angle on the case. When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret, her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient's chance remark sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial killer who's long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own paranoid, fragile mind? Because, as Frieda knows, every step closer to a killer is one more step into a darkness from which there may be no return . . . Flawlessly executed, "Waiting for Wednesday "is a penetrating, twisted novel of murder and neurosis with a jaw-dropping climax that will linger in readers' minds long after they have turned the last page.

Review quote

Praise for TUESDAY'S GONE: "A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller." --"Kirkus" "Seamlessly mixes a foreboding tone and deliberate pacing with deft plot twists that should leave readers pleasantly chilled to the bone." --"Publishers Weekly" "Starts as a grim psychological thriller in the vein of Dennis Lehane's darker novels and turns into a fascinating puzzle in which character analysis holds sway. Highly recommended for fans of psychological suspense who enjoy a complex protagonist." --"Library Journal "(starred review) "The plotting is fast-paced with surprises galore, and characters literally come to life on the pages. . . . When readers are through, they will find themselves waiting impatiently for Wednesday to arrive!" --"Suspense Magazine" "If you are looking for wickedly inventive crime fiction, you need look no further than the writing team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French . . . Unless you are into tension, paranoia and burning the midnight oil to finish a book, don't embark on reading "Tuesday's Gone" after suppertime!" --"BookPage" ""Tuesday's Gone" is one of those great, great books in the mystery genre wherein the more you know, the less you know--peel back one stratum and you cannot shovel fast enough to get into the next, which reveals anything but what you expected. French takes the novel on a number of unexpected twists and turns, not the least of which relates back to "Blue Monday", which, as it turns out, didn't quite end on its last page." --Bookreporter.com
