The thrilling third novel starring London
psychotherapist-turned-detective Frieda Kleinfrom internationally
bestselling author Nicci French
Nicci French's Blue Monday and Tuesday's Gone
introduced the brilliant yet reclusive psychotherapist Frieda Klein
to widespread critical acclaim, but Waiting for Wednesday
promises to be her most haunting case yet.
Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a
pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can't
piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents
will offer a new angle on the case.
When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret,
her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still
reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own
rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient's chance remark
sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial
killer who's long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to
unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own
paranoid, 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 . . .
Flawlessly executed, Waiting for Wednesday is a
penetrating, twisted novel of murder and neurosis with a
jaw-dropping climax that will linger in readers' minds long after
they have turned the last page.
