Présentation de l'éditeur

Waiting For Wednesday by Nicci French is the thrilling third novel in the highly acclaimed Frieda Klein series.

Ruth Lennox, beloved mother of three, is found by her daughter in a pool of her own blood. Who would want to murder an ordinary housewife? And why?

Psychotherapist Frieda Klein finds she has an unusually personal connection with DCI Karlsson's latest case. She is no longer working with him in an official capacity, but when her niece befriends Ruth Lennox's son, Ted, she finds herself in the awkward position of confidante to both Karlsson and Ted.

When it emerges that Ruth was leading a secret life, her family closes ranks and Karlsson finds he needs Frieda's help more than ever before.

But Frieda is distracted. Having survived an attack on her life, she is struggling to stay in control and when a patient's chance remark rings an alarm bell, she finds herself chasing down a path that seems to lead to a serial killer who has long escaped detection. Or is it merely a symptom of her own increasingly fragile mind?

Because, as Frieda knows, every step closer to a killer is one more step into a darkness from which there may be no return . . .

Nicci French, fidèles à eux-mêmes : beaucoup de suspense, une histoire intrigante, tout ce qu'il faut pour ne pas s'ennuyer. La langue est élégante.

Le suspense tient en haleine jusqu'au bout. Les sentiments et les réactions des personnages sont extrêmement bien vus, contribuant au réalisme de cette œuvre à l'architecture sans faille. Les aventures de la psychologue Frieda Klein, qui se poursuivent d'un roman à l'autre, donnent un fil directeur particulièrement appréciable.

This is the third Frieda Klein book from the writing team that makes up 'Nicci French'. The first 2 books were excellent, and I was very much looking forward to the third. Unfortunately, I can't say I enjoyed it as much as the previous books.

The book opens with the murder of a seemingly innocent mother of three, and at first glance it appears that she has been the victim of a robbery gone wrong. Meanwhile, psychotherapist and past consultant to the police, Frieda is trying to deal with the trauma from a previous case and not very robust health. Nonetheless, she attracts the vindictive attention of a rival police consultant, who does not appreciate having been made to look a fool. The third subplot follows a retired journalist who believes he has spotted a pattern in a series of missing girls. The journalist and Frieda find themselves intersecting as Frieda follows up a chance remark made in a therapy session, and they both find themselves asking the same man for answers. Sorry if this sounds jumbled and confusing, to be honest this book is made up of numerous threads - probably far too many. Some of the threads were quite silly and took away from the main plot(s), for example there is a thread about Frieda having work done on her bathroom and when she will be able to have a bath.

Another problem is that for much of this book, past trauma or not, Frieda appears to have taken a doctorate in how to be a victim and a doormat. So, overall, not the best book in the series, but it gets four stars because even dreck from Nicci French is better than a lot else that is on offer.

So, here's hoping Thursday is a better day for Frieda, Nicci French and the series in general.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Poorly Edited Third Book in a Good Series 14 mai 2014
Par Diyoyonah - Publié sur

My overarching feeling is that the book needed a better editor. The plot and subplots are fine in this, the third in the series. However, the fact that the main character Frieda Kelin is a psychotherapist should not mean that we must be subjected to every agonized twist and turn in her thought process. The section at the end of the book comparing the course of the river in the story to her own life was badly written and tedious.
I agree with the reviewer who felt that in this book Frieda Klein has become a professional victim. If her inaction at critical moments is simply a means to move the story forward, the character is paying too high a price for the use of a rather cheap device by the writers. The Nicci French writers need to tighten up their plot line. Another like this, and I won't read any more from the series. A previously interesting character has become tiresome.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Mystery 13 juin 2014
Par Sandra Kirkland - Publié sur
Dr. Freida Klein, London psychotherapist, is not working at present. After the events that occurred after her last time helping the police, she is left battered in body and spirit and needs time to recuperate. She questions if she should ever help the police again, and they also wonder if the association was wise as Freida is not the kind of person who is bound by rules and regulations.

But sometimes things seem to be meant to be. A woman in Freida's neighborhood, Ruth Lennox, is found murdered in her home. The police first believe it is a routine robbery gone bad, but as they investigate, a layer of lies and secrets begins to emerge. The woman's children are acquaintances of Freida's niece, and she brings them to Freida as they grapple with their grief and disbelief.

Then Freida starts another quest. She hears a story that she can't just put away. It tickles at the edges of her mind, and she tries to find the girl the story originates with. Soon, with an unlikely ally, she realizes that there could be a serial killer who has operated without discovery for years. Can Freida solve the various murders or should she turn her back on crime and focus on her own recovery?

This is the third mystery in the Freida Klein series by Nicci French, and readers who read the first two have been eagerly anticipating this one. Klein is very different from the normal detective, brought into cases against her will by her drive to help others and her ability to see beyond the apparent to the hidden. The pace is slow at first, but soon the reader realizes that the slow pace just increases the tension that creeps in on every page. It leads to a stunning conclusion that won't be soon forgotten. This book is recommended for mystery readers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captivating Story 7 juin 2014
Par Mason Canyon - Publié sur
Occasionally a story is so perplexing at times that you want to stop reading/listening, but you can’t because you have to know how it all comes together.

That’s how I found Nicci French’s third installment in the Frieda Klein Mystery series, WAITING FOR WEDNESDAY, which was recently released. It seemingly had numerous plots going at the same time with no apparent connection. The main focus appears to be the confusion and troubled life of the protagonist, Frieda Klein, a London psychotherapist-turned-detective.

Narrator Beth Chalmers does an excellent job giving each character their own individual voice. Through her cadence and mannerisms, Chalmers makes it easier to follow as the story weaves back and forth.

One of the stories deals with the murder of a wife and mother of three in an apparent burglary gone wrong. But the woman has a scandalous dark secret that might not be a secret as she had hoped.

Meanwhile Jim Fearby, a former journalist, is set on a path to track down the real killer of a young woman an innocent made had been imprisoned for. Through the course of his investigation, Fearby has compiled a list of missing young women he believes have been killed by the same man.

Frieda is sent a fake client by a rival police consultant, Dr. Hal Bradshaw, who wants to undermine her work. When Frieda doesn’t report the client’s alleged criminal impulses, Bradshaw makes her (and several other colleagues) look inept. Frieda, fixated on a statement from the fake client, goes in search of the original source of the statement beginning her own search for a missing girl.

As the story weaves back and forth, readers/listeners can begin to see how the different plots are slowly coming together. What starts off as a bit confusing leads readers/listeners on an intriguing journey with unexpected twists and turns laced with humor, haunting moments of self-doubt and suspense.

The author has created a cast of captivating characters giving them personal problems and emotional upheaval in their lives as they struggle to perform professionally. With an eye for detail and rich descriptions, the author transports readers/listeners to London adding depth to the story.

WAITING FOR WEDNESDAY is the third installment in the Frieda Klein Mystery series. While it can be read/listened to on its own, readers may not completely understand the cause of Frieda’s troubles without having at least read the previous installment, TUESDAY’S GONE.

While the story starts off a bit slow and confusing, it is truly well worth the effort to read/listen further as it holds you captive wanting answers. The suspenseful conclusion will leave fans of the series anticipated what will happen next to Frieda and her friends.

FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

but you're waiting for wednesday.
waiting for wednesday.
waiting for wednesday, i pray you'll put me on the spot.
i do believe you, that you'll love me that you'll leave me.

what will i do when you come near to me?
you'll put me on the spot.
you've been doing this a long, long time,
not that you're better than me,
but that you do it a lot.

Now i'm waiting for wednesday,
waiting for wednesday,
waiting for wednesday,
waiting for wednesday."

Nicci French names their books after songs. Wednesday is a Lisa Loeb song that fits the bill. This could be one of the more complicated stories I have read. Frieda Klein is something, but this obsessed? If you are new to Nicci French and Frieda, the psychotherapist, I suggest you go to book one , 'Blue Monday', and then start from there. This is a series that sweeps you up and takes you right on the journey. It is a terrific ride, I promise you.

Someone has killed Ruth Lennox, beloved wife and mother, and as it turns out, Ruth has a secret life. DCI Karlsson, has just seen his two young children off to Spain with their mother, his ex-wife. He is berfit and buries himself in his work. Frieda was let go from her contract with the police, and Bradshaw, an ego maniac and terrible therapist, brought in. He is quite intimidated by Frieda and does everything to undermine her. However, Frieda isn't really with us. She is physically, but something or someone is leading her to another case, lost girls, that somehow become involved with a journalist. Complicated and conflicted, bothered and bewildered is Frieda. She needs her own therapist, and she remembers someone.

This novel was disappointing in a way. Frieda is conflicted and needs help, and it took a entire book for her to realize this. However, the route to the end is a terrific storyline. I like Nicci and French and together they write a fabulous series.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 06-30-13
