Oh my word, ‘Saturday Requiem’ is another stunning, provocative and captivating addition to the Frieda Klein series. Frieda Klein is asked to assess a woman who was found guilty and imprisoned for the murder of her family. As Frieda investigates the tragedy, she stirs up trouble, in more ways than one. Danger hovers in the background, it never truly goes away and haunts the steps of Frieda. The author combination behind Nicci French works brilliantly, there are no seams to trip over, instead their writing blends into a tension-filled pit of wonderful. I have absolutely loved this series, the fact that each of the six novels so far, all highlight a sequential day of the week suggests that the next title, on the last day, Sunday, is going to be an absolute belter! ~ Liz Robinson

If you like Nicci French you might also like to read books by Ruth Rendell, Gemma O'Connor and Morag Joss.

Synopsis

Saturday Requiem by Nicci French

Thirteen years ago eighteen-year-old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the brutal murder of her family. It was an open-shut case and Hannah's been incarcerated in a secure hospital ever since. When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to meet Hannah and give her assessment of her, she reluctantly agrees. What she finds horrifies her. And Frieda is haunted by the thought that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family; that something wasn't right all those years ago. And as Hannah's case takes hold of her, Frieda soon begins to realize that she's up against someone who'll go to any lengths to protect themself.
