Waiting For Wednesday: A Frieda Klein Mystery

by Nicci French

Penguin Publishing Group | April 3, 2014 | Hardcover

Waiting For Wednesday: A Frieda Klein Mystery is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The thrilling third novel starring London psychotherapist-turned-detective Frieda Klein—from 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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent third novel I'm totally a fan of Nicci French, these two writers seem so intertwined just like their books :) These are books I can't put down and always look forward to getting back to reading them when I do have to stop. Just don't want to have to wait until 2016 for the 4th one - may have to read the three again to familiarize myself before the fourth one is available.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for WAITING FOR WEDNESDAY

"There’s enough backstory for this third Frieda Klein mystery to stand alone, but the greatest pleasure is in following the series from the beginning to see the evolution of Klein, a detective of the mind, who endures a rough patch here but makes it through the darkness. Another
compelling entry in this complex, suspenseful series."
Booklist (starred review)

"Demanding the reader’s full attention, this richly detailed and intricate thriller weaves the story of Frieda’s life, past and present, into a compelling and suspenseful story. Fans of Elizabeth George will appreciate French’s attention to subtlety and detail."
Library Journal (starred review)

"Not only is the plot of this story intricately woven by this husband and wife team of writers, but the ending is one that will leave you gasping for breath!"
