LOUISE PENNY says the Frieda Klein novels are "fabulous."
JOSEPH FINDER says they're "in the rich vein of Kate Atkinson."
And TAMI HOAG calls them "truly unique."
Now the final book in this extraordinary series is here. And it's an ending you'll never forget.
A decade ago, psychologist Frieda Klein was sucked into the orbit of Dean Reeve -- a killer able to impersonate almost anyone, a man who can disappear without a trace, a psychopath obsessed with Frieda herself.
In the years since, Frieda has worked with -- and sometimes against -- the London police in solving their most baffling cases. But now she's in hiding, driven to isolation by Reeve. When a series of murders announces his return, Frieda must emerge from the shadows to confront her nemesis. And it's a showdown she might not survive.
This gripping cat-and-mouse thriller pits one of the most fascinating characters in contemporary fiction against an enemy like none other. Smart, sophisticated, and spellbinding, it's a novel to leave you breathless.
French's eighth and final novel about London psychotherapist Frieda Klein (after Sunday Silence) never rebounds from its sluggish start, in which a car crashes into a store. Behind the wheel is a man who has been dead for several days, the possible victim of serial killer Dean Reeve. The case falls to Det. Insp. Bill Dugdale and his assistant, Dan Quarry, who are soon called to the scene of another bizarre murder. Meanwhile, lazy and uninspired criminology student Lola Hayes, who needs a topic for her dissertation, decides to focus on Frieda and her unusual cases. But Frieda is in hiding, in fear of Reeve, who's obsessed with making the psychotherapist one of his victims. Once Lola finds Frieda, she learns that Dean has been following her in the hope that she'll lead him to his prey. More odd murders that appear to be Dean's work do little to further the overwrought plot. Some readers may wish that French (the husband-wife writing team of Sean French and Nicci Gerard) had ended the series, which started strong, a couple of books back.
