I totally devoured this! I happened upon this series last year when I was doing a reading challenge and needed a book with a day of the week in it! The main character is a psychotherapist, Frida, who inadvertently becomes embroiled in a missing persons and murder investigation. In this second outing, I was fascinated by Frida as a character. She is aloof, very private but also caring. We learn she is cut off from her family but now why. It is her astute observations that keep the case open and h ...more

This novel by the husband-wife writing team Nicci French is the second in the seven-novel Frieda Klein mystery novel series. I had read the first, Blue Monday, a few months back and knew then I would eventually get back to reading the rest of the books. Klein is a psychiatrist, who works as a psychotherapist, in contemporary London. While she gets along well with all sorts of people, she is very much a loner, loving night walks and time alone in her tiny and cozy house. From time to time the

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

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

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.

The second book in the series and again we're treated to a slower paced psychological thriller featuring Freida Klein. I'm still not sure how I feel about main protagonist, Klein. She's a difficult character to like with her somewhat cold and offhand ways.

A male body is discovered in the flat of a woman with mental health issues and raises many, many questions as to how the man came to be there. DCI Karlsson together with his team are tasked with piecing together just who the victim was and the

I really enjoyed the story, and had a hard time putting it down each time I picked it up to read more. It was a somewhat convoluted tale, but that did not deter me. I am caught up. I want to know more about Frieda.

On to book three!

Προσωπικά πέρασα πάρα πολύ ωραία με αυτό το βιβλίο και μου άρεσε ένα κλικ περισσότερο από το πρώτο (4 στα 5 εκείνο).

Η αστυνομική του ιστορία είναι έτσι κι αλλιώς καλή, αλλά αυτό που το κάνει πραγματικά ενδιαφέρον -για μένα πάντα- είναι ότι τα περισσότερα τα ανακαλύπτουμε μέσα τα μάτια μιας ψυχοθεραπεύτριας. Ναι μεν η Φρίντα συνεργάζεται άμεσα με την αστυνομία, αλλά συχνά-πυκνά είναι οι συνομιλίες της με κατηγορούμενους και μη αυτές που προωθούν την πλοκή.

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, κ ...more

Tuesday's Gone is a pretty good followup to Blue Monday, the first in the Frieda Klein series. It should be strongly noted, and I am strongly noting that you must read Blue Monday before this one. Book 1 is terrific.

This is a fine series so far by Nicci French, the pen name of a husband/wife writing team. One of the more remarkable things about these novels is how fluid the writing is. I can't imagine it would be easy to collaborate two writers and end up with a seamless narrative, maintaining a

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

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.

Zou dit boek graag 3,5 sterren geven... Ik vond de omschrijvingen mooi en ook het verhaal op zich kon mij wel bekoren... De ontknoping kwam voor mij echter zeer plots en onverwachts... Helemaal op het einde kwam er dan nog een spannend stuk dat ik wel intrigerend vond... Soms vond ik wel het feit dat Frieda in kleine toevalligheden plots 'iets' zag, soms moeilijk te geloven... Ook vond ik dat de hoofdstukken in het boek soms te kort waren, het verhaal sprong nogal heen en weer waardoor het soms ...more

Segundo libro de la serie protagonizada por Frieda Klein, psiquiatra que colabora puntualmente con Scotland Yard, y ambientada en Londres. La protagonista es un poco especial: solitaria, le gusta vagabundear por la noche por la ciudad, muy segura de si misma.
A lo largo de la serie, vamos conociendo detalles de su vida y como desarrolla su trabajo; ya que, en mi opinión, la trama policial es un poco secundaria, al lado de la narración sobre la vida y los pacientes de Frieda.

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
Es war ein schnellerer Einstieg in den Fall, da die Personen nicht mehr vorgestellt werden mussten. Der Fall an sich war nicht ganz so spannend wie im ersten Teil, aber man erfährt mehr über Frieda. Ich werde die Reihe auf jeden Fall weiterlesen!

I don’t particularly like Frieda yet. It may occur as the series goes on - I’ve only just started it. What I dislike is the overly-dramatic nuance to every single solitary detail that occurs. Overly-dramatic, overly-analyzed situations, and on one hand, Frieda is always correct about everything, but on the other hand she is blaming herself for things out of her control. Makes her character way too flat and banal to me .... the more I write this, the more I realize that i didn’t like it. I’l

I enjoyed the first book in this series, loved this one (rounding to a 5), and am now onto the third one, though so far a little disappointed in number 3.

Still, I think this is a series I will follow all the way through. The protagonist, a London psychologist who consults for the police at times, and just sticks her nose in the way at other times, is a fairly unusual female protagonist.

I see in the reviews that some find her cold and un-relatable. I can see that. But frankly I'm a fan, and fin

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!

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.

Dit is echt een serie wat je niet losstaand moet lezen of door elkaar. In dit boek komen dingen naar voren uit het voorgaande boek, en om die te snappen moet het vorige boek ook gelezen zijn.

We volgen Frieda die weer gaat helpen tijdens een politiezaak. Er gebeuren meerdere dingen rondom de nieuwe zaak en tegelijkertijd gebeuren er dingen de nog horen uit het verhaal van het vorige boek.

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.

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.

When the story opens, a social worker discovers a mentally ill woman tending to a decaying corpse. The ill woman doesn’t seem to get that the man is dead, and so she isn’t the bes

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.
