Blue Monday leaves readers with the promise of intriguing tales to come. (People, four-star review)
Internationally best-selling authors Nicci Gerard and Sean French, writing as Nicci French, have sold more than eight million copies of their books worldwide. But nothing they’ve written written before has grabbed the attention of reviewers and listeners like Blue Monday and its iconic heroine, Frieda Klein.
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it a “superb psychological thriller…with brooding atmosphere, sustained suspense, a last-minute plot twist, and memorable cast of characters.”
In Tuesday’s Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man’s identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can’t shake the feeling that the past isn’t done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?
A masterpiece of paranoia, Tuesday’s Gone draws listeners inexorably into a fractured and faithless world as it brilliantly confirms Frieda Klein as a quintessential heroine for our times.
