Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Mystery

by Nicci French

Penguin Books | March 25, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Mystery is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
“A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller” (Kirkus Reviews) from the bestselling author of Blue Monday

Nicci French’s first Frieda Klein mystery, Blue Monday, won rave reviews everywhere—from People magazine to the New York Times Book Review—and earned comparisons to bestsellers by Kate Atkinson and Laura Lippman. In Tuesday’s Gone, the solitary London psychotherapist returns in a brilliant thriller even more twisted than the last.

On a routine home visit, a London social worker discovers her psychotic client serving tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. Unable to make sense of the woman’s confused ramblings, Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson asks Frieda Klein for help uncovering the dead man’s identity. Frieda soon learns that he was a notorious con man—one Robert Poole. But Frieda can’t help feeling that Poole was killed to embroil her in the investigation, that her past isn’t done with her yet. And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to put down Excellent book, had to read it quickly in order to keep all the characters in perspective and remember who was who. Not a book you can read a chapter or two and come back 3 days later and remember anyone. Have not read the 1st book however, so need to do that and then the 3rd & 4th. Hope they are all as engrossing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tuesday's Gone I have just discovered this author and this is the second of a series that is spellbinding. A mystery set in London, a detective and a psychotherapist who are trying to find answers make for an interesting story. This is the second Frieda Klein mystery and I suggest the reader starts with Monday Blues where the main characters are introduced. I immediately ordered the Wednesday book. Hard to put down!

Read from the Book

Maggie Brennan half walked, half ran along Deptford Church Street. She was talking on the phone and reading a file and looking for the address in the A–Z. It was the second day of the week, and she was already two days behind schedule. This didn’t include the caseload she had inherited from a colleague who was now on permanent sick leave.“No,” said Maggie, into the phone. She looked at her watch. “I’ll try to get to the meeting before you finish.”She put the mobile into her pocket. She was thinking of the case she’d just come from. A three-year-old with bruises. Suspicious bruises, the doc tor in A&E had said. Maggie had talked to the mother, looked at the child, checked out the flat where they lived. It was horrible, damp, cold, but not obviously dangerous. The mother said she didn’t have a boyfriend, and Maggie had checked the bathroom and there was no razor. She had insisted that the child had fallen down the stairs. That’s what people said when they hit their children, but even so, three-year-olds really did fall downstairs. She’d only spent ten minutes there, but ten hours wouldn’t have made much difference. If she removed the child, the prosecution would probably fail and she would be disciplined. If she didn’t remove the child and he was found dead, there would be an inquiry; she would be fired and maybe prosecuted. So she’d signed off on it. No immediate cause for concern. Probably nothing much would happen.She looked more closely at the A–Z. Her hands were cold becau

Editorial Reviews

Praise for TUESDAY'S GONE:

"A fiercely intelligent, multilayered thriller."
Kirkus

"Seamlessly mixes a foreboding tone and deliberate pacing with deft plot twists that should leave readers pleasantly chilled to the bone."
Publishers Weekly

"Starts as a grim psychological thriller in the vein of Dennis Lehane’s darker novels and turns into a fascinating puzzle in which character analysis holds sway. Highly recommended for fans of psychological suspense who enjoy a complex protagonist."
Library Journal (starred review)

"The plotting is fast-paced with surprises galore, and characters literally come to life on the pages. . . . When readers are through, they will find themselves waiting impatiently for Wednesday to arrive!"
Suspense Magazine

"If you are looking for wickedly inventive crime fiction, you need look no further than the writing team of Nicci Gerrard and Sean French . . . Unless you are into tension, paranoia and burning the midnight oil to finish a book, don’t embark on reading Tuesday’s Gone after suppertime!"
BookPage

"Tuesday’s Gone is one of those great, great books in the mystery genre wherein the more you know, the less you know—peel back one stratum and you cannot shovel fast enough to get into the next, which reveals anything but what you expected. French takes the novel on a number of unexpected twists and turns, not the least of which relates back to BLUE MONDAY, which, as it turns out, didn’t quite end on its last page."
