Publisher Description

Nicci French's darkest most shocking thriller yet, Saturday Requiem is the stand-alone sixth instalment of the Frieda Klein series, about a young girl accused of murdering her family

Thirteen years ago eighteen-year-old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the brutal murder of her family. It was an open-shut case and Hannah's been incarcerated in a secure hospital ever since.

When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to meet Hannah and give her assessment of her, she reluctantly agrees. What she finds horrifies her. And Frieda is haunted by the thought that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family; that something wasn't right all those years ago.

And as Hannah's case takes hold of her, Frieda soon begins to realize that she's up against someone who'll go to any lengths to protect themself.

A great read. Fast paced action with familiar characters taking their roles in Frieda's investigations. The pursuit of Dean Reeves continues with shocking results. Just a bit disappointed with Karlsson being on the sidelines. Looking forward to the Sunday (Finale ?) Hope it won't be the last of Frieda Klein.

Saturday Requiem

Another mesmerising read! Team Nikki French have done it again - another murder mystery has been solved by Freida Klein but the true horror story of Dean Reeve continues, so we will certainly buy the next book in the series, the 'Sunday' sequel. Clever marketing - I can't wait!
