This review is from: Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Novel (Frieda Klein Series Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
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.
My baby's gone
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!
