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.

Feel like I know these characters personally

Another great Freda Klein novel. These characters have become so familiar to me that I really care about what happens to them. I know we are heading towards the inevitable conclusion but what will it be??

Gripping.

The whole series has been a page turner from beginning to end.

I’m sorry to have finished with the family Freida built around her.

I feel the end has been left in a place for her to return !!!??

Excellent

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.
