Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Novel (2) (Frieda Klein Series) (English Edition) Formato Kindle
|Nuovo a partire da||Usato da|
For Frieda Klein the days get longer, the cases darker . . .
Psychotherapist Frieda Klein thought she was done with the police. But once more DCI Karlsson is knocking at her door.
A man's decomposed body has been found in the flat of Michelle Doyce, a woman trapped in a world of strange mental disorder. The police don't know who it is, how he got there or what happened - and Michelle can't tell them. But Karlsson hopes Frieda can get access to the truths buried beneath her confusion.
Painstakingly, Frieda uncovers a possible identity for the corpse: Robert Poole, a jack of all trades and master conman. But the deeper Frieda and Karlsson dig into Poole's past, the more of his victims they encounter - and the more motives they find for murder. Meanwhile, violent ghosts from Frieda's own past are returning to threaten her.
Unable to discover quite who is telling the truth and who is lying, they know they are getting closer to a killer. But whoever murdered Poole is determined to stay free - and anyone that gets too close will meet the same fate.
A gritty heroine, a gruesome crime and a terrifying hunt for a psychotic killer, Tuesday's Gone is not to be missed by fans of psychological thrillers.
Praise for Nicci French:
'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
'Nicci French knows just how to play on our worst fears' Daily Mail
Nicci French is the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. The couple are married and live in Suffolk. There are fourteen other bestselling novels by Nicci French, all published by Penguin.

"A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller."
"Seamlessly mixes a foreboding tone and deliberate pacing with deft plot twists that should leave readers pleasantly chilled to the bone."
"Starts as a grim psychological thriller in the vein of Dennis Lehane’s darker novels and turns into a fascinating puzzle in which character analysis holds sway. Highly recommended for fans of psychological suspense who enjoy a complex protagonist."
—Library Journal (starred review)
"The plotting is fast-paced with surprises galore, and characters literally come to life on the pages. . . . When readers are through, they will find themselves waiting impatiently for Wednesday to arrive!"
"If you are looking for wickedly inventive crime fiction, you need look no further than the writing team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French . . . Unless you are into tension, paranoia and burning the midnight oil to finish a book, don’t embark on reading Tuesday’s Gone after suppertime!"
"Tuesday’s Gone is one of those great, great books in the mystery genre wherein the more you know, the less you know—peel back one stratum and you cannot shovel fast enough to get into the next, which reveals anything but what you expected. French takes the novel on a number of unexpected twists and turns, not the least of which relates back to BLUE MONDAY, which, as it turns out, didn’t quite end on its last page."

The idea of a psychotherapist helping the police to solve crimes is probably not a unique one, however the character of Klein is complex and mystifying and the reader feels immersed in her techniques. With plenty of frustrating scenarios, tricks, twists and turns along the way, this story kept me awake long into the night with a book that I found hard to put down. Like the first in this series, I was pleased to discover the ending was never really tightly tied down with plenty to lead us into the next one, where once again I hope we will join the adventures of Frieda and all her friends – especially Josef who originally seemed like an accidental addition, but who now has a place firmly in my heart.
Another incredible book produced from this author for the series and again I absolutely loved it! The characters, the story, the twists and turns and the way it wasn't rushed but read steadily and evenly.
I did find some of the ending (or close to the end) confusing... I still don't get the significance of the pictures in the flat, I didn't find it relevant and then was confused with how it was explained. I guess it could have been explained a little better in a sense.
Another thing... I have no idea what happened near the end with Michelle... it wasn't well detailed and I felt that a chunk was missing from that part of the book.
I had a feeling about the 'who did it' whereas in book one I was utterly shocked. But even though I had my suspicions, and I was completely right for once, i still loved the story... the gruesomeness etc.
Amazing read and I highly recommend this series.
