Thursday's Children by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the bestselling Frieda Klein series, following Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday. When psychotherapist Frieda Klein left the sleepy Suffolk coastal town in which she grew up she never intended to return. Left behind were friends, family, lives and loves but alongside them, painful memories; a past she wouldn't allow to destroy her. Then, years later, an old classmate appears in London asking Frieda to help her teenage daughter and long buried memories resurface. Death soon follows, leaving Frieda no choice but to return home to confront her past. And the monsters no one else believed were real...Through a fog of conflicting accounts, hidden agendas and questionable alibis, Frieda can trust no one as she tries to piece together the shocking truth, past and present. Before another innocent dies. When it comes to psychological suspense, there's none better than Nicci French. And Thursday's Children is Nicci French at her very best. There are three previous novels in the Frieda Klein series; look out for Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday. Praise for the Frieda Klein series: "Nicci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition. No one understands human psychological frailty better. No one writes better about grief, love, fear or emotional damage. Not many books are as insightful as they are addictive; Nicci French's are..." (Sophie Hannah). "Brilliantly crafted...masterly control of suspense." (Daily Mirror). "Tense, frightening, gripping." (Easy Living). "Nerve-tingling and addictive." (Daily Express).show more

Our customer reviews

Gripping but not grisly; the complex character of Frieda Klein, loner and psychotherapist, must solve a crime from her past that is having consequences on the present and will into the future if the villain isn�???�??�?�¢??t stopped. The pursuit of justice comes at high cost to the doctor who must go back to her childhood town and re-open old wounds. It�???�??�?�¢??s easy to read and follow, but won�???�??�?�¢??t keep you awake at night (that�???�??�?�¢??s a good thing!)show more
