It's been a long time since I read a Nicci French novel and I won't wait so long in the future! I had never read any of the Freda Klein series but this one I found compelling. Freda Klein does not necessarily come across as a likeable character - rather a cold fish - but maybe that's the result of her background, something which is tellingly revealed in this novel. The fact that she is not immediately loveable is what gives this novel it's edge. You may not like her but you possibly know someone just like her - in fact all of Nicci French's characters have a credibility that keeps the pace flowing, the plot believable and the interest high. If you like crime thrillers give it a go!
