Book Description

19 July 2012 Frieda Klein 2

Nicci French, the bestselling author of What to do When Someone Dies and Losing You, returns with the second book in the gripping new series that began with Top Ten Bestseller Blue Monday. Fans of Peter James' Roy Grace series and Peter Robinson's DCI Banks series will love central character psychotherapist Frieda Klein, who is consulted on a grisly and seemingly unsolvable crime.

For Frieda Klein the days get longer, the cases darker . . .

Psychotherapist Frieda Klein thought she was done with the police. But once more DCI Karlsson is knocking at her door.

A man's decomposed body has been found in the flat of Michelle Doyce, a woman trapped in a world of strange mental disorder. The police don't know who it is, how he got there or what happened - and Michelle can't tell them. But Karlsson hopes Frieda can get access to the truths buried beneath her confusion.

Painstakingly, Frieda uncovers a possible identity for the corpse: Robert Poole, a jack of all trades and master conman. But the deeper Frieda and Karlsson dig into Poole's past, the more of his victims they encounter - and the more motives they find for murder. Meanwhile, violent ghosts from Frieda's own past are returning to threaten her.

Unable to discover quite who is telling the truth and who is lying, they know they are getting closer to a killer. But whoever murdered Poole is determined to stay free - and anyone that gets too close will meet the same fate.

A gritty heroine, a gruesome crime and a terrifying hunt for a psychotic killer, Tuesday's Gone is not to be missed by fans of psychological thrillers.

4.0 out of 5 stars A well-written, involving thriller 6 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I enjoyed this second book in Nicci French's Frieda Klein series. Although not essential, it will help if you have read Blue Monday first (even though it's not quite as good) because there are personal and plot issues which carry on from there.

The plot of Tuesday's Gone is well summarized elsewhere on this page and again involves psychotherapist Frieda Klein reluctantly assisting with a police investigation. The book hits its stride straight away and I was very quickly drawn in and thoroughly gripped for most of the time. Frieda's character develops well and more naturally this time without all the slightly laboured scene-setting of the previous book. Tension builds nicely and the plot is well developed with a couple of genuinely clever twists and Nicci French's characteristic excellent writing and sense of pace.

Once the main mystery is solved there is a frankly rather silly coda of about 50 pages whose purpose seems to be to provide the apparently mandatory Investigator In Peril Climax and to further the through-plot which looks as though it may run for the whole series. I didn't think it added much and I would have preferred the book without it, but it didn't ruin the book either and this remains a very well written, involving thriller which I recommend warmly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Physician Heal Thyself,, 31 May 2012
By Mrs. Katharine Kirby TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Whereas I found Blue Monday to take an unconscionably long time labouring over the groundwork, firmly establishing relations with our unlikely heroine Dr. Frieda Klein, together with her sad and mostly sorry Detective pal DCI Karlsson plus other assorted damaged members of her coterie, Reuben, Josef and Olivia; this time I felt comfortably at home from the start, merely passing grateful for a polite reintroduction to acquaintances who now feel like good friends. So yes, having read the first day of the week `Blue Monday', in this series was a handy help; but really you could equally enjoy `Tuesday's Gone' as a one off.

The strangest of tea parties is rudely interrupted by a visiting social worker. You may never feel the same about iced buns again. At first the possibility of a murder having been committed is uncertain, the unfortunate corpse an enigma, his personality a veritable Chinese Box of apparently unconnected discoveries. That is until Karlsson takes an interest in a funeral urn on a mantelpiece...

Once again I wanted to feign illness and remain in bed all day alone with the story, the pace of which never faltered. Addictive reading that drags you along at speed, wishing for nothing more than to work out the puzzles presented, pronto. Luckily Frieda can see what we might have missed and so doesn't get completely taken in. Her years of training and practicing psychotherapy give her inside knowledge, warning bells thankfully alerting her to a wrong'un. So much so sadly that she alone perceives a dangerous character sneakily stalking her - there is a serious matter still to be addressed in the next book, that of a missing psychopathic murderer, he who has the perfect cover and alibi, the terrifying one who has his eye on our feisty London night walking insomniac lady Dr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing read 25 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read Blue Monday I expected a new story about Frieda Klein......but her past keeps haunting her even as a new mystery emerges. A caseworker discovers a rotting corpse being tenderly cared for by a client. He is naked, his clothes carefully washed and is seated on the couch with a cup of tea. Frieda is brought in to try to talk to the woman as the police try to identify the body and work out what happened. But Carrie Dekker makes a complaint about how her husband Alan was used to track down the missing children, and Frieda begins to suspect Dean Reeve is still alive. The two plots interweave and I could not put the book down.

Tuesday's gone with the wind,
My baby's gone, gone with the wind.
And I don't know, oh, where I'm goin'.
I just want to be left alone.
When this train ends, I'll try again.
I'm leavin' my woman at home.

Lynryd Skynyrd

Nicci French, the UK couple who are a writing duo, have given us the second book in the series featuring Frieda Klein. My supposition is that Nicci French is borrowing the titles of this series from rock and roll songs. 'Blue Monday' is an old Fats Domino tune, and 'Tuesday's Gone' is one of Lynryd Skynyrd's best! What will Wednesday bring?

Frieda Klein is a psychotherapist in London who has many secrets of her own. She is able to bring out the secrets her patient's harbor, but her own life is sealed. Frieda is a consultant for the police force, working with DCI Karlsson. Their's is an interesting relationship, very professional, no romance hinted at, but we find them depending upon each other. They are involved in the murder of an unknown man, found in the home of a confused, mentally incompetent woman. From this point on, a convoluted turn of events, unwinds and then winds up again. Not much is ever truly solved. Characters from the past come back to haunt Frieda. Frieda Klein is one of the more interesting characters to come along in the word of police procedural/mysteries. All of the characters in this series have complicated problems, no one is free and happy. The people who come and go also are all out of sorts. However, this series is very well written, keeps you on the edge of your seat. Some scenes and happenings are totally out of sync and unbelievable, but I can overlook those.

This was a difficult to put down novel. I find Frieda Klein to be a character that I want to follow. Too many mysteries in her life to uncover. The characters are many, their lives messy, but the minds, ah, there is the secret!

Recommended. prisrob
