Psychological thriller

Tuesday’s Gone is the second book in the widely popular series by author Nicci French featuring the character Frieda Klein. Nicci French is actually the bestselling, English husband and wife writing team Nicci Gerard and Sean French.
 
Frieda Klein is a brilliant psychotherapist, but she is also a very lonely and repressed woman. When a social worker finds one her clients, a mentally ill middle-aged woman serving tea to a decomposing corpse, Frieda is called in to help find out what has happened and to help identify the victim.
 
DCI Karlsson, a police inspector Frieda has worked with in the past, asks Frieda to try to speak with the uncommunicative woman who is now incarcerated in a mental hospital. He hopes that Frieda can at least find out how the man came to be in the woman’s apartment, and who actually killed him.
 
As Frieda unravels the mystery of the victim’s identity she also uncovers a possible motive for his murder.
 
Tuesday’s Gone is a taut, tensely-written mystery. The authors slowly reveal complex layers of their characters’ psyches, along with the plot.
 
This page-turner will delight fans of sophisticated psychological thrillers, as Nicci French proves that mind games can be chilling.
