Feel chills down your spine with the thrilling first novel in Nicci French's bestselling killer series
'Undeniably at the top of British psychological suspense writing' OBSERVER
'Utterly gripping . . . I could hardly turn the pages fast enough' 5***** READER REVIEW
Monday: five-year-old Matthew Faraday is abducted. His face is splashed across newspaper front pages. His parents and the police are desperate. Can anyone help find their little boy before it is too late?
Psychotherapist Frieda Klein just might know something.
One of her patients describes dreams of seizing a boy who is the spitting image of Matthew. Convinced at first the police will dismiss her fears out of hand, Frieda reluctantly finds herself drawn into the heart of the case. A previous abduction, from twenty years ago, suggests a new lead - one that only Frieda, an expert on the minds of disturbed individuals, can uncover.
Struggling to make sense of this terrifying investigation, Frieda will face her darkest fears in the hunt for a clever and brutal killer . . .
'The twists within the last few chapters left me thinking about it for hours after' 5***** READER REVIEW

The story was good with lots of mystery and 2 crimes 20 years apart colliding. I particularly liked the denouement - much of which I had worked out, but that didn't matter. But the writing didn't really flow for me and whilst there were some great characters - Josef the builder and Chloe, Frieda's niece in particular, I found DCI Karlsson confusing - one minute really nice and the next losing his temper for very little. I presume Mr/s French are building a relationship between psychiatrist Frieda and Karlsson for future books, but it's not really gelled for me. I do wonder if it's to do with the fact that this is a writing team of 2 people - I have no idea how the mechanics of this works but I suspect that's why I'm experiencing problems with flow and understanding some of the characters.
I will probably give book 2 a go as I think there is a lot of potential, but I don't feel myself rushing out to buy it just yet.
My favourite characters are the Ukrainian builder who falls through Frieda's roof, and Alan, the patient tortured by the dreams and feelings he can't explain (but of course Frieda will). The second book is better - I'm not sure I'd have read number two if I started with number one, and now I'm torn because I have Thursday (on a cheap 99p kindle deal) but don't know if I dare read it without paying for Wednesday first.
The story itself was engrossing and at a certain point gave me chills down the spine when I reached on OMG moment which just made me want to rush on and read more. It dealt with fascinating issues and was totally immersing. One of things that I really enjoyed was that it made me think about things that had never entered my head before which I found interesting and thought provoking.
I loved many of the other characters, especially Josef who I thought was lovely and I do hope he is a constant character in the rest of this series. I also wonder whether we will see or hear any more of Sandy. I am extremely pleased that I took the plunge and committed myself to buying more of this series already as I am looking forward to reading more. I have been a fan of Nicci French for a long time but this series certainly strikes me of some of their best work.
I know Nicci French is a duo of writers but this would have bee 10 different writers for the way it flows.Normally good stand alone stories but this was just awful
I will not read another Frieda Klein book as the character was badly written, boring and would have been disbarred from any kind of medical practice for her inappropriate behaviour. The end was neither original or believable
The main character is totally unbelievable, half of the things she does would have her struck off immediately and she seems a bit stupid and totally unlikeable! There are too many characters introduced at first, some that we never hear of again and it's difficult to keep up with where and why they belong in the story. There is a certain passage when she meets the professor that specialises in twins that really got on my nerves because NOBODY would ever speak like that to another person, it's obviously for the sake of the reader but makes the situation sound ridiculous!
It has got slightly better now that I'm 75% of the way through, but I think that's because it's only focussing on a small number of characters and obviously it's building up to the finale. I will finish it but only because I want to know what happens but I won't read another one I'm afraid!
