Présentation de l'éditeur

Thursday's Child by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the bestselling Frieda Klein series, following Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.

'Nicci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition ' SOPHIE HANNAH


Two crimes, generations apart . . .

Twenty years ago teenager Frieda Klein was brutally attacked in her own home. No one believed her - not the police, not her mother, not her friends. She left town, trained as a psychologist and never went back.

Now an old classmate has shown up. She wants help with her daughter, who claims to have been attacked at home. An attack eerily similar to the one on Frieda. No one else believes the girl's story.

Now - with a school reunion in the offing - Frieda returns to the darkness she fled. To the small town which refused to help her and which hides a terrible secret. Because someone at the reunion knows what happened.

And they'll stop at nothing to prevent Frieda discovering the truth . . .

I have read all the Frieda Klein novels and I always eagerly await the next one. This was quite a disappointment. I found it considerably below the standard of the the previous three although it still says a "good" read. It will not stop me buying the next one and I hope that 'Friday' will make better reading than 'Thursday'.

Par Laurel-Rain Snow - Publié sur

Can anyone ever go home again?

For Frieda Klein, therapist and woman managing in her solo existence in London, thoughts of the home she left behind in Braxton twenty-three years before have now intruded upon her, as she faces the young teenage girl, the daughter of an old school acquaintance from Braxton, who has confided a horrific secret. Something that arouses all of Frieda's worst memories.

Young Becky has told about her rape a few months before, and how her mother, Maddie, did not believe her. Now Maddie is aware that Frieda knows the secret, and this only enrages her. Her feelings of intense dislike and fear are brought to the fore. For Frieda, the long-buried rage aroused in her by the release of this secret is like a strong gravitational pull into the past. Something Becky said to Frieda reawakened that long ago moment when she herself had been raped at sixteen, and reminded her of her own mother's disbelief.

Can the past be repeating itself? Then, as if to ante up the stakes, Becky is found hanged in her room, presumably suicide. But the more Frieda learns, upon her return to Braxton, the more she is convinced that the man who raped her also raped Becky...and others in between. And that he has also killed.

Thursday's Children is the story of the past, the present, and how the secrets come back to haunt us. The title also symbolizes the name of a musical group playing in Braxton on the night of Frieda's rape. Can Frieda discover who has been raping and murdering young girls, and if she does, will the police even believe her? Her experiences with the police in this town have been less than satisfactory.

But she has her own occasional colleague, DCI Malcolm Karlsson...and seemingly the shadowy stalker presence of presumed dead Dean Reeve, that nobody believes is there--except, perhaps, Karlsson--and as time passes, her belief in his malevolent/protective presence is reinforced by events.

This fourth novel in the series is also populated by familiar faces from the previous novels, like Josef, the handyman and occasional cook; Reuben, a therapist colleague; and her niece Chloe. For the first time, we meet her mother, Dr. Juliet Klein, who is a hard, ironic, and cold presence in Frieda's past, and with whom she now must interact. Will the ghosts of the past finally be put to rest? Will the secrets be unleashed and the perpetrators punished? And, in the end, will Frieda find peace?

We keep hearing, 'you can't go home again'. But, apparently, you can, for awhile. Frieda Klein, the psychotherapist, who has grown close to our hearts, finally gets to tell her story.

An old classmate of Frieda's turns up one day with her child in tow. The child is anorexic, has some sort of issues and is not doing well. The classmate, Maddie, asks Frieda to see her. What she discovers shocks Frieda to the core. The young girl, Becky, was raped, and the words the rapist left her with, Frieda had heard herself. She knew she must go to the home she had left 23 years ago. She attempts to help the young girl, but the mother is upset that Frieda believes her, and storms out. Now, we learn about Frieda, her previous life, her parents, her brothers, the reason she left home at aged sixteen. At they same time, Frieda tells her close friends about her own unfortunate circumstances, and they close around her. Sandy returns from the United States, and decisions must be made.

I found the writing of this book superb. Some of the situations seemed absurd and overdrawn and left me with questions, but in the whole, a work of art. Sandy turns out to be a big disappointment to me. Frieda's other friends are all exactly what we would think they would be. Her old classmates are essentially what many old classmates turn out to be. Dean Reeve returns, and it must be that in the fifth book, that Friday, is when we learn all about Dean and why he is following and protecting Frieda, and what he is up to. Thursday was a perfect runner up to the finale, that must come soon. Dean Reeve cannot be strung out much longer. I will absolutely hate to see the end of Frieda. But we must get rid of Dean, and we must see Karlsson happy with his children at home, and, just maybe, a romance with Frieda. Frieda is such a dark woman, we must begin to see the light now that she has revealed her true self, and whatever secrets she had exposed. Friday can't come too soon.

Review: 4 out of 5 stars

Thursday's Children is the fourth book in the Frieda Klein series, when Maria from Penguin sent me the whole series I literally devoured them; I tend to read only YA and NA these days but it was nice to re-visit a genre I always find myself enjoying.

Thursday's Children follows Frieda Klein, a psychotherapist as she tracks down a serial rapist and killer. When an old friend of frieda's, Maddie Cappel unexpectedly approaches her for help with her withdrawn 15 year old daughter it inadvertently draws her back to the town she left over twenty years ago and to a past and haunting memories she has tried to forget.

Thursday's Children is a tightly written psychological thriller, we learn a lot about Frieda, her childhood and her family life in this instalment which I feel had been omitted in the previous books, we gained more insight into her personality which I appreciated but she can still be quite detached and frustrating which also grated on my nerves.

This book had a nice balance of drama, mystery and intrigue with a few twists and turns thrown in to keep things exciting - I always enjoy the whodunnit aspect and rarely get it right; the setting is appealing and atmospheric, you are drawn into the smallest of details and the complex plot with intricate storylines made for a riveting read.

As much as I think these books can be read as stand-alone novels I think to fully understand all of the characters and the continuing happenings they are best to be read in order.

Nicci French is the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French.

Overall, with a well-crafted plot and fascinating characters, Thursday's Children is a great addition to the series; if you enjoy psychological thrillers with darker edges this series is ideal.

Thank-you to Maria and Penguin Group Australia for introducing me to this series and for sending me the books.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Please go back to stand-alone books. Please. 24 novembre 2014

I have always loved Nicci French stand-alone books, and found them inventive and engaging. Unfortunately the Frieda Klein series has had quite a different style, and although I've continued to read the series and even enjoyed one of them, please let it end now.

I found this extremely hard-going. The story didn't seem to fit in well with everything that's been developed about Frieda throughout the other three books in the series, and it moved sloooooowly.

When the killer was revealed I had to go back and work out who the character was, as they'd all started to merge together. The supporting characters of Frieda's neice, and her odd building acquaintance were still delightful, but not enough to keep a book going let alone a series.

Please, please, please go back to writing stand-alone novels. They really were your delightful forte, and I still highly recommend any of the books outside of this series. More French, less Nicci.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 less compelling than all previous parts 27 mai 2014

I'm a long-standing Nicci French fan - in fact I've read everything they published so far. Ever since I read - no, not read, listened to the audiobook version of "What to do when someone dies" (when I just couldn't wait to get stuck in traffic again and listen more), I've been addicted - to the thrill of the seemingly simple everyday stories, brillant psychology of the characters, and real feel of modern London life.
However, just recently I got the feeling that this series is getting slightly out of control of its creators - with those characters in it who manage to remain convincing but also become boring and predictable (Frieda, Josef, Chloe) - while others, intended to keep the thrill going (Dean Reeve) becoming oddly fake and unrealistic with their motives.
It's still smooth to read, but the thrill is lost somewhere along the way.
