Waiting for Wednesday: A Frieda Klein Novel (3) Copertina rigida – 20 giugno 2013
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 . . .

Wednesday is often the most difficult day of the week which ends with the feeling of relieve that it is over. Hopefully, Frieda can start to regain some control of her life in the next book. Although the lives of other characters can never be the same again.
This series just gets better and better. Fast paced with lots of twists and turns.
I do think it is important to read this series in order as it may not make a lot of sense otherwise. There is a lot of references to the earlier books and I am convinced that by reading them in order will only improve the enjoyment. On finishing this book I instantly started the next book in the series that I have almost completed in one day.
Anyway, the first two Frieda books - loved them. Frieda came across as the kind of character we've all met before in fiction and onscreen - the psychiatrist/psychotherapist who has more problems than his or her clients. But she was darker and more complex and I found her intriguing. I could see the end of the first book coming but that didn't ruin it for me. Similiarly, I enjoyed the second book, too.
I bought this book and Thursday's Children to take on holiday a few weeks ago and read them back to back. I think now that was a mistake. I didn't enjoy them as much as the first two - in fact, I found them somewhat depressing, especially 'Thursday's Children' - and it was also fairly easy to guess what was going to happen at the end of both of them. I can't say too much because of spoilers, but if you've read the others, you'll guess the ending of at least one of them. The characters are also starting to grate on me, even Frieda herself and her enigmatic decisions that are sometimes never explained. In 'Waiting for Wednesday' the detective, Karlsson, is investigating the murder of Ruth Lennox, a seemingly ordinary wife and mother, and virtually every character he interviews is rude and aggressive towards the police. Consequently the 'voices' of the characters often sound far too similiar. The supporting cast of characters - Josef, Reuben, et al - are also starting to get on my nerves slightly. I find French's portrayal of teenage kids particularly irritating - and yes, I know teens can be annoying - but still...
Having said that, this isn't a bad book. It's just a bit of a disappointment after the first two.
I love this series of books.
Frieda's thinking keeps you gripped and adds twists
to the story that most people wouldn't imagine.
Frieda had been attacked in the previous book
and is still healing from the physical and mental side of this.
Her niece introduces her to her friend Ted.
His mum has been recently murdered and the case
hasn't been solved yet.
Frieda ends up entangled in everyting.
Although the police have been told not to use her
services anymore, her friendship with DCI Karlsson
means that she can help them to find the real killer.
I really enjoyed this book!
So much so that I instantly bought the next book in the series.
I enjoy Frieda's character and the way it pulls
you through the story.
The story grips you and wants you to read more and more.
This is a fantastic series with much more than just
a who done it.
