Thursday's Child by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the bestselling Frieda Klein series, following Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.
Two crimes, generations apart . . .
Twenty years ago teenager Frieda Klein was brutally attacked in her own home. No one believed her - not the police, not her mother, not her friends. She left town, trained as a psychologist and never went back.
Now an old classmate has shown up. She wants help with her daughter, who claims to have been attacked at home. An attack eerily similar to the one on Frieda. No one else believes the girl's story.
Now - with a school reunion in the offing - Frieda returns to the darkness she fled. To the small town which refused to help her and which hides a terrible secret. Because someone at the reunion knows what happened.
And they'll stop at nothing to prevent Frieda discovering the truth . . .

Tutti, a Okeham, il piccolo paese dove Tabitha è nata, e dove ha commesso l’errore di tornare, sono convinti che sia colpevole. Altrimenti, perché il cadavere di Stuart Rees sarebbe stato trovato proprio nel capanno vicino a casa sua? Tabitha è confusa, non ricorda quasi nulla di quel 21 dicembre, se non che fosse uno dei suoi «giorni neri»: un tempo terribile fuori dalle finestre e un abisso spaventoso nel cuore. Non rammenta dove sia stata, né cosa precisamente abbia fatto, né perché la polizia l’abbia trovata coperta del sangue della vittima. Più cerca di concentrarsi, di mettere a fuoco, più qualcosa le sfugge, nella ricostruzione dei fatti, qualcosa di essenziale. Contro l’unanime condanna, Tabitha vuole la verità. E sa che c’è una sola persona che può scoprirla, una sola capace di difenderla, una sola su cui contare: sé stessa.
Un thriller che trascina il lettore nei meandri della mente della protagonista e poi sui banchi del tribunale, dove si consuma il gioco feroce del «tutti contro una».
Un’indimenticabile figura di donna, insieme fortissima e fragile, che affronta a mani nude il corpo a corpo con il pregiudizio, l’omertà, la doppiezza di chi la circonda.
Frieda Klein kann nach den Aufregungen der Vergangenheit endlich aufatmen, glaubt sie, und sich Patienten, Freunden und Hobbys zuwenden. Doch schon bald holt eine offene Schuld sie ein – und wider Willen wird sie in den Fall Hannah Docherty verwickelt. Die über Dreißigjährige soll im Mai 2001 ihre Familie ermordet haben. Seitdem fristet sie ihr Leben, Medikamenten und Misshandlungen ausgesetzt, in einer psychiatrischen Klinik. Schon bald ist Frieda von Hannahs Unschuld überzeugt und setzt alles daran, den Fall neu aufzurollen ... Doch sie hat noch andere Sorgen – Dean Reeve, ihr Feind und Beschützer, ist anscheinend wieder aufgetaucht. Ein packender Thriller um die langen Schatten der Vergangenheit.
“Nicci French is a specialist in the kind of evil that burrows from within.” —New York Times Book Review
In this new heart-pounding standalone from the internationally bestselling author that People calls “razor sharp,” a single mother suspects her young daughter has witnessed a horrible crime when the girl draws a disturbing picture—but the deadly path to unravel the truth could cost her everything.
Maybe Tess is overprotective, but passing her daughter off to her ex and his new young wife fills her with a sense of dread. It’s not that Jason is a bad father—it just hurts to see him enjoying married life with someone else. Still, she owes it to her daughter Poppy to make this arrangement work.
But Poppy returns from the weekend tired and withdrawn. And when she shows Tess a crayon drawing—an image so simple and violent that Tess can hardly make sense of it——Poppy can only explain with the words, “He did kill her.”
Something is horribly wrong. Tess is certain Poppy saw something—or something happened to her—that she’s too young to understand. Jason insists the weekend went off without a hitch. Doctors advise that Poppy may be reacting to her parents’ separation. And as the days go on, even Poppy’s disturbing memory seems to fade. But a mother knows her daughter, and Tess is determined to discover the truth. Her search will set off an explosive tempest of dark secrets and buried crimes—and more than one life may be at stake.
In this twisty new stand-alone novel from internationally bestselling author Nicci French, a young woman agrees to do a favor for her first love—but when things go horribly wrong, one small task turns into a murder investigation that completely upends her life, ensnaring her in a deadly web of secrets and lies.
It’s a simple enough favor.
Jude hasn’t seen Liam in years, but when he shows up at her work asking for a favor, she finds she can’t refuse. All Jude has to do is pick Liam up at a country train station—without telling anyone. So what if she has to lie to her fiancé? Jude is still committed to him and their imminent wedding, even if she and Liam were in love once.
She owes him.
After the car crash that changed everything years ago, bright, ambitious Jude went to medical school, back on the path she had planned before meeting moody, artistic Liam. Meanwhile, he never fully recovered from the dark stain the accident left on his record.
Now he’s gone.
When the police show up at the station instead of Liam, Jude realizes that she knows nothing about the man he’s become. Now she’s tangled up in his life, the last person to have seen him, and maybe the only one who can uncover the truth about what went wrong—even if she destroys her own life in the process.

“This house of correction is booby-trapped with twists, the floors paved with trapdoors, quicksand churning in the garden. Enter if you dare.” –A.J. Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
“Full of unexpected turns . . . Immensely satisfying.” – The New York Times Book Review
In this heart-pounding standalone thriller from bestselling author Nicci French, a woman accused of murder attempts to solve her own case from the confines of prison—but as she unravels the truth, everything is called into question, including her own certainty that she is innocent.
Tabitha is not a murderer.
When a body is discovered in Okeham, England, Tabitha is shocked to find herself being placed in handcuffs. It must be a mistake. She’d only recently moved back to her childhood hometown, not even getting a chance to reacquaint herself with the neighbors. How could she possibly be a murder suspect?
She knows she’s not.
As Tabitha is shepherded through the system, her entire life is picked apart and scrutinized —her history of depression and medications, her decision to move back to a town she supposedly hated . . . and of course, her past relationship with the victim, her former teacher. But most unsettling, Tabitha’s own memories of that day are a complete blur.
She thinks she’s not.
From the isolation of the correctional facility, Tabitha dissects every piece of evidence, every testimony she can get her hands on, matching them against her own recollections. But as dark, long-buried memories from her childhood come to light, Tabatha begins to question if she knows what kind of person she is after all. The world is convinced she’s a killer. Tabatha needs to prove them all wrong.
But what if she’s only lying to herself?
Erst seit Kurzem lebt Tabitha wieder im Ort ihrer Kindheit, einem idyllischen Dorf an der englischen Küste. Doch der Wunsch, dort Ruhe zu finden, verwandelt sich in einen Alptraum, als sie des Mordes an ihrem Nachbarn beschuldigt wird. Alle Indizien sprechen gegen sie. Und sie kann sich nicht erinnern, was an jenem 21. Dezember geschehen ist, als im Schuppen hinter ihrem Haus die schlimm zugerichtete Leiche gefunden wurde. Nun sitzt sie in Untersuchungshaft und wartet auf ihren Prozess. Ihre Anwältin rät ihr, sich schuldig zu bekennen. Doch Tabitha spürt, dass sie nicht die Mörderin ist. Und nur sie selbst kann das beweisen.
Ausgezeichnet mit dem Prädikat »Besonders empfehlenswert« vom Gold Dagger Award der britischen Crime Writers’ Association, auf der Shortlist für den besten englischsprachigen Krimi des Jahres!
One little secret between a married woman, her lover, and a killer.
In this thrilling standalone from the internationally bestselling author of the Frieda Klein series, a married woman’s affair with her boss spirals into a dangerous game of chess with the police when she discovers he’s been murdered and she clears the crime scene of all evidence.
It should have been just a mid-life fling. A guilty indiscretion that Neve Connolly could have weathered. An escape from twenty years of routine marriage to her overworked husband, and from her increasingly distant children. But when Neve pays a morning-after visit to her lover, Saul, and finds him brutally murdered, their pied-à-terre still heady with her perfume, all the lies she has so painstakingly stitched together threaten to unravel.
After scrubbing clean every trace of her existence from Saul’s life—and death—Neve believes she can return to normal, shaken but intact. But she can’t get out of her head the one tormenting question: what was she forgetting?
An investigation into the slaying could provide the answer. It’s brought Detective Chief Inspector Alastair Hitching, and Neve’s worst fears, to her door. But with every new lie, every new misdirection to save herself, Neve descends further into the darkness of her betrayal—and into more danger than she ever imagined. Because Hitching isn’t the only one watching Neve. So is a determined killer who’s about to make the next terrifying move in a deadly affair….
