Not the return to form I was hoping for....
on 26 August 2012
This feels like a sequel to Blue Monday rather than one of a series of books featuring psychologist Frieda Klein. I liked Blue Monday although I found bits of it very silly. However, for me, Tuesday's Gone lacked the pacy, enjoyment factor of the first one. Frieda is still a great character but there were too many plot holes (spoiler alert -Janet's 'hanging' being a murder....surely forensics would have spotted that, certainly when it was done at the hands of an amateur.) And the quick, unsatisfactory ending made me think that the authors just wanted to finish the book as quickly as possibly. Nicci French are certainly talented but they seem to be on an increasingly long run of below par novels. At this rate I might have to go back and re-read their earlier stuff which I loved.
