LoveReading View on Waiting for Wednesday A Frieda Klein Novel

The third Frieda Klein mystery. She is an insomniac psychotherapist and in this unfortunate case finds herself confidante to both her detective chum and the victim’s son. Other characters from the earlier two books pop in and out and some knowledge of them would help you here and given the fact this is one of a series, it does make sense to read from the beginning.  In any event the plot is great and once the series has finished readers will get a better understanding of the whole.

Waiting for Wednesday A Frieda Klein Novel Synopsis

Waiting For Wednesday by Nicci French is the thrilling third novel in the highly acclaimed Frieda Klein series. Ruth Lennox, beloved mother of three, is found by her daughter in a pool of her own blood. Who would want to murder an ordinary housewife? And why? Psychotherapist Frieda Klein finds she has an unusually personal connection with DCI Karlsson's latest case. She is no longer working with him in an official capacity, but when her niece befriends Ruth Lennox's son, Ted, she finds herself in the awkward position of confidante to both Karlsson and Ted. When it emerges that Ruth was leading a secret life, her family closes ranks and Karlsson finds he needs Frieda's help more than ever before. But Frieda is distracted. Having survived an attack on her life, she is struggling to stay in control and when a patient's chance remark rings an alarm bell, she finds herself chasing down a path that seems to lead to a serial killer who has long escaped detection. Or is it merely a symptom of her own increasingly 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..

This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.

The Good Book Guide Review

The series of Nicci French books featuring intuitive crime psychologist Frieda Klein, always designed to be specifically related to a day of the week, have now reached Thursday. This latest is as good as anything husband-and-wife authors Nicci Gerard and Sean French have written, with the psychologist remembering the small coastal town where she grew up – and to which she has never returned since she came to London. But then an old school acquaintance asks if Frieda will help her troubled teenage daughter, and Frieda is soon in typically unsettling territory as a tangled and shocking plot slowly unfurls. It is business as usual for Frieda Klein, in fact.
