Η δεύτερη περιπέτεια της Φρίντα Κλάιν, η οποία είναι ψυχοθεραπεύτρια και συνεργάζεται με την αστυνομία για τη διερεύνηση εγκλημάτων. Η συνεργασία βέβαια προκέκυψε περισσότερο κατά λάθος, παρά την επεδίωξε κάποια πλευρά.

Το βιβλίο, λοιπόν, αφορά στο έγκλημα που διερευνά η αστυνομία, όταν το πτώμα ενός άντρα βρίσκεται στο σπίτι μιας γυναίκας με ψυχικές διαταραχές, μετά από έλεγχο της κοινωνικής υπηρεσίας. Οι αποκαλύψεις για την ταυτότητα του νεκρού και τη δράση του είναι σοκαριστικές, μάλιστα κάπο

Tuesday’s Gone by Nicci French is a 2012 Penguin Group publication.

“Monday’s like jumping into ice-cold water, but you get a shock of excitement. On Tuesday you’re still in the water but the shock has worn off and you’re just cold.”

This second book in the Frieda Klein series finds the psychologist involved in a disturbing case centered around a mentally ill woman who had been keeping a dead man in her residence. When it becomes clear the man was murdered, Frieda officially becomes a consultant

I actually enjoyed this book a great deal more than Blue Monday, the first in the series. I think that was because the storyline in this one appealed to me more and also the main characters were established and you knew what to expect and how they'd act. There was also more development of Frieda's character in this book and I liked that additional information on her background as it made her actions and feeling make more sense.

I thought the pacing of this book was excellent and there was never a

Περίμενα με μεγάλη ανυπομονησία το νέο βιβλίο της Nicci French, ένα καλλιτεχνικό ψευδώνυμο πίσω από το οποίο βρίσκεται το συγγραφικό, και όχι μόνο, ζεύγος, Nicci Gerrard και Sean French, και είμαι βεβαία πως όσοι έχετε διαβάσει το "Blue Monday", συμμερίζεστε το πάθος μου για την πένα τους/της. Και αυτό γιατί, τόσο το "Blue Monday", όσο και το νέο βιβλίο των περιπετειών της ψυχοθεραπεύτριας Φρίντα Κλάιν με τίτλο, "Tuesday's Gone", δεν είναι ένα ακόμα απλό, κοινότυπο αστυνομικό μυθιστόρημα αλλά, ...more

Tuesday's Gone picks up around a year after the events of Blue Monday, which introduced psychiatrist Dr Frieda Klein who reluctantly became involved in a police investigation involving one of her clients and an abducted boy. In the midst of a cold London winter, DCI Karlsson asks Frieda to speak with a disturbed woman found caring for a naked, rotting corpse in her flat, unable to provide a coherent statement. Deciphering Michelle Doyce's rambling leads Freida and Karlsson's team to identify the ...more

I’ve long been a big fan of the Nicci French writing partnership – they were writing psychological thrillers long before their current popularity, good stories well told with strong female lead characters (my particular favourites are Killing Me Softly, Beneath the Skin and the wonderful Secret Smile). But I was disappointed in the last two or three before this series started. Psychotherapist Dr Frieda Klein has given them a new and original angle, and this series is shaping up really nicely – I ...more

Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς με τις περιπέτειας της Φρίντα Κλάιν δεν σε αφήνει καθόλου παραπονεμένο. Αντιθέτως! Ο λόγος ρέει γρήγορα, η ιστορία "τρέχει", χωρίς να κάνει "κοιλιά" ούτε στιγμή. Το μυστήριο καλύπτει τη μεγαλύτερη έκταση της υπόθεσης, ως οφείλει άλλωστε, για να φτάσει στη σωστά προσαρμοσμένη κορύφωση της αγωνίας και την τελική αποκάλυψη της αλήθειας. 5 αστέρια από εμένα!

Nicci French is my speed.

Not that I'm addicted by any means (as I surely would be if I tried the pharmaceutical).

It kept me awake. Honestly, if you knew how few things do that, you'd understand why that impresses me.

I read this in a day. Why a book like this has to be 450 pages long is beyond me, but they zip along, the complaint is by the bye.

I haven't read the first of this series and I don't think I will read any more either. But I object to this business of suckering in the reader with story

This book exemplifies both everything I love and everything I hate about the writing of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. They're brilliant at suspense - lots of surprising twisty twists that grip you from the start and keep you turning the pages. What they're less good at is construction and methodical cluing - the villains in this case were both blatantly obvious from the weirdness of their behaviour from the moment they appeared onpage and unsatisfyingly underwritten and undermotivated. It's ...more

For some time I have been reading mediocre thrillers which are rather like watery soup, so it was a refreshing change to get my teeth again into something produced by the Nicci French duo. Not a word is wasted.

If any writer wants to know how to create an opening chapter, then look no further. There is no choice. You HAVE to read on. I flew through this book. Over and over, I promised myself 'just one more chapter', but one glance at the next, and I was off again.

Just what I needed after slogging through a few books that didn't grab me.
A good murder mystery set in London, it kept me interested throughout.

I recommend reading Blue Monday first. There are some threads that carry through this book and presumably the next. Frieda is a psychotherapist and police consultant who is good at her job, but is hiding from her own demons. The slow reveal of her character is an interesting subtext to a somewhat traditional whodunit/police procedural.

It’s been over a year since Frieda Klein worked the police case with DCI Malcolm Karlsson. In that time she’s gone back to her normal life, being a therapist to her patients, keeping up with her niece Chloe and trying resolutely not to think of Sandy, the lover who went to America. Then all of a sudden, Karlsson shows up, asking for her help again.

A routine visit from Social Services led to an utterly grim discovery. A woman who had been released from psychiatric care without any real diagnosis

Ordinarily, I'm not much for mystery novels, and I read them only infrequently, since otherwise I get really bored with the predictable plotting, though it's not like romance stories are any less predictable and I still read those by the dozens. It may not make much logical sense, but this is how I feel. Anyway, I accepted a review request for the first book in this series, Blue Monday, sort of on a whim, and was surprised to find how much I enjoyed it. Tuesday's Gone steps up the tension of the ...more
Events in this volume follow pretty much immediately after those of Blue Monday. There's a brief recap to refresh your memory if you're reading them a year apart as they were published, and again in the next one, but I'd strongly recommend gobbling them all up back-to-back.

Freida Klein is a complicated character. She's amazingly private, but not cold, and other people appreciate her kindness, sensitivity, and good advice. In her orbit there's a sister-in-law and teenaged niece, her mentor, the c

The second book in the Freida Klien series. The story opens with a social worker visiting the flat of one of her mentally ill patients, Michelle Doyce. All appears well at first but then when Michelle mentions she is entertaining someone and the social worker looks in on the guest the mystery begins. It seems as though Michelle has been serving tea and buns to a dead man for the last few days. He's sitting propped up on the couch, completely naked and his middle finger is missing. With Michelle ...more

The 2nd book in the Frieda Klein series by the husband and wife writers Nicci Gerard and Sean French.
In my opinion unlike a lot of other books from series this book must be read after "Blue Monday" to make any sense. I did enjoy the book but I didn't feel it lived up to the high standards of the first book. I will certainly continue to read not only other books in this series but other novels written by this pair.

This is the second book in the detective/psychological thriller series featuring psychotherapist Dr. Frieda Klein, who is the occasional collaborator of London Detective Chief Inspector Malcolm Karlsson. There is no romantic involvement between the two, although not for want of enthusiasm among readers for the match-up.

This is my first Nicci French novel, and I will definitely read more!

When a department of health woman visits Michelle Doyce for the first time in quite a long time, she didn’t expect to find a naked corpse sitting up on her sofa, being served a cup of tea, surrounded by swarms of flies. The body also had no identification whatsoever, plus a missing finger, which had only recently been removed. Michelle, in her extremely confused state, was looking after him, and could offer no other explanation

Oft sieht sich Frieda Klein genötigt, genau nach diesem Motto zu handeln. Und auch ihre zweite Zusammenarbeit mit der Polizei verlangt ihr einiges ab.

When a social worker goes on a routine home visit to check on a client, she receives a massive shock. The client, Michelle Doyle, offers her tea and shows her to the sitting room where the social worker discovers the body of a man, obviously dead for a while. Michelle seems to think nothing is wrong.

Put into a hospital, the police are baffled about Michelle. The man was murdered. Did Michelle do that, or was this body just another symptom of the obvious hoarding disorder Michelle's home gives e
