Summary

Psychotherapist Frieda Klein's home is her refuge until she returns to find it has become a disturbingly bloody crime scene. Beneath the floorboards the police have found the body of a man she had hired to help protect her.

When those closest to Frieda begin to be targeted, the picture becomes more skewed. Unless Frieda can find and stop whoever is threatening her friends and family, her love and loyalty could come at a truly fatal cost.

Cop Out

I love this series and listened to them all in order. Great plots and narration. I realise the titles have been successively days of the week- this one being the last day of one week. If this IS the final one - which I hope it isn't - then the ending is a cop out and Nikki French have not done a good end. They've fudged it. Or maybe they couldn't agree???!!!! I hope this is NOT the last we'll hear of Frida Klein.

Hmmmm

The story is solid. However the screeching performance of the Olivia character is truly intolerable. I had to skip through whole chapters of that endless screeching.

Good, but implausible

I enjoyed the book, and the narration. However the story seems pretty implausible in places. Why do the police not use modern forensic methods, or dogs for their searches? Would they really let a psychoanalyst sit in on suspect interviews? and many more unlikely aspects if the story. In spite of this, I enjoyed the book.

Disappointing

I take it this is the last book in the series and as such was disappointing. Unless I missed something, of course. Or maybe I’m wrong and it isn’t the last book at all.

An old favourite

I loved this story. Much improved from the previous story. Also feel a new chapter may be possible. Here’s hoping. The narrator is excellent and the suspense around DR continues.

Annoying read

Frieda Klein is beginning to annoy me. She is turning into the very worse North London 'Luvvie' with all her equally annoying Luvvie friends - therapists/journalists the whole bunch.

No police force would accept the interference they get from Ms Klein and the reader knows this.

Made my week.

My favourite fictional Psychotherapist. It was great reading about my local area, it made me feel like I was walking along side her, I could picture all the places in my minds eye. I'm always fascinated how Frida can inspire such loyalty from her friends and at the same time be so unpalatable to so many people. She is such a contradiction, I experience her as cold yet warm, connected yet disconnected, perhaps this is why I enjoy reading about her, I look forward to the next one!

Last of seven or is it.

Couldn't wait for the audible addition to be released as I presumed Dean would have come to a sticky end. Not so can't wait now to see if there is going to be another book with Frieda at the helm.
