Publisher's Summary

Nicci French, the best-selling 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 best seller Blue Monday. Fans of Peter James' Roy Grace series and Peter Robinson's DCI Banks series will love the central character, psychotherapist Frieda Klein, who is consulted on a grisly and seemingly unsolvable crime.

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

Nicci French is the pseudonym for Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. The couple live in Suffolk and have written 12 other best-selling novels, including Beneath the Skin and Blue Monday, the first thrilling instalment in the Frieda Klein series.

    "Painful and boring"

    The worst book I've downloaded, slow and far fetched... Have you ever heard of a mental Heath specialist who gets a call and goes immediately to help a stranger evn though he didn't want to? No, me either.... I'm giving up, just can't finish it. This is a first... I adore my books and usually choose wisely

    I'm an avid reader and my choice of books is pretty eclectic. The heavier stuff I still read, but I love audible books for lighter stuff!

    "Grisly but enjoyable"

    A well-read book that is up to the standard that you expect from this duo. I presume the series format of the books has been chosen to allow them to develop characters more deeply than is possible in a one-off. I made the mistake of listening to this without having first read 'Blue Monday' (searched for it as an audio book, but it doesn't seem to be available - a bit odd!). With some series this doesn't matter too much, but you really do need to read these in correct order, or far too much is given away to make the earlier book enjoyable if you read it later. That aside, I enjoyed the story and the reading, and look forward to Wednesday!

    "Had its moments, but not many."

    My opinion. The scenes and characters were not as well described as they could have been. Characters introduced were not done so very well and as a results left you forgetting them, and not knowing who was being referred to whenever they were mentioned later on. The plot was weak, and the story dragged out - you feel like you're listening to a real-time police enquiry, boring bits included. A different scene and character is described in brief at the beginning of some chapters, which means nothing at the time, and even when you discover what this is about, it's pointless - added nothing except confusion. There were a few parts to this book that were intriguing, but they were quickly over and ended with disappointment. The book didn't draw me in, and I didn't once wan't to keep listening - I just pushed though it. Overall 2 stars from me. I'd recommend The Hunger Games trilogy, Nobody True, and His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.

    "When's Wednesday coming?"

    Loved it - great twist - followed on well from first book without too much going over stuff.

    Story
    "good story poorly read"
    Where does Tuesday's Gone rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    story well up to Nicci French standard, interesting characters, twists turns and confusion make it a compusive read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Freda Kliein with her problematic relationships and her insightful and empathetic personality


    What didn’t you like about Beth Chalmers’s performance?

    I found her interpretation of male characters difficult, the clipped and slightly superior tones that they all adopted took more than a little getting used to. none the less the personality of the men carried it through


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    an intellectual rather than an emotional response


    Any additional comments?

    This would not stop me getting another book by the same author

    "Promising start but then the story just fell apart"

    Where did the story go? It started out really great, I was fascinated by Michelle and the way she seemed to be in a world not quite the same as the more mentally sane characters in the book but then, after the first five-six chapters I constantly lost focus and now, with more than five hours left of the book, I give up! More than 25 chapters has passed and no sight of Michelle. Wasn't it supposed to be about a really disturbed patient that Frieda had to interact with and try to figure what was wrong..?

    I thought the Frieda-series seemed really promising but after this start..? Nah, it only made me disappointed, feeling as if I'd listened halfway into a favourite book and the batteries suddenly died on my listening device.

    "Painful to listen to"

    I've been an audible listener for quite a long time and this is the first time that I've felt the urge to review a book. The story was good, but this book was spoiled for me by the reader who seems to have managed to make all the male characters sound aggressive and slightly unreal. I don't enjoy writing a negative review, because I know how much work the reader has to do, but sadly the reader didn't do the story justice.

    "so well perfomed, makes up for a complicated story"
    What did you love best about Tuesday's Gone?

    I just love the way Nicci French describes the characters


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The relationship between the inspector and Frieda Klein


    Have you listened to any of Beth Chalmers’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I read Blue Monday and found her performance as brilliant as in Tuesday's gone.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I just couldn't stop listening


    Any additional comments?

    Such a meticulous description of live in London

    "Riveting"
    If you could sum up Tuesday's Gone in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting, engaging, empathic


    What does Beth Chalmers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She captures each character's personality perfectly. I could listen to her for hours! Her accents are also very convincing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    But he's still out there

    "* More Brilliance! *"

    Make sure you listen to Blue Monday before listening to this. That had me looking for more and I found Tuesday's Gone.

    I felt that some of this one was a little unrealistic in that Frieda Klein does a little too much of the police work. But that's the only negative to this story. Again, you're drawn into the story until the end. It has it's twists like Blue Monday. Characters with their distinct personalities.

    Beth Chalmers is an excellent narrator. She gives great expression, and the characters are differentiated very well. Nice smooth listening.
