It started with Monday. But it doesn't end with Sunday.
Read Sunday Silence, the new novel in the series that LOUISE PENNY calls "fabulous, unsettling, and riveting" — and brace yourself for the breathtaking series finale in summer 2018.
Lover of London, gifted psychologist, frequent police consultant — Frieda Klein is many things. And now she's a person of interest in a murder case. A body has been discovered in the most unlikely and horrifying of places: beneath the floorboards of Frieda's house.
The corpse is only months old, but the chief suspect appears to have died more than seven years ago. Except as Frieda knows all too well, he's alive and well and living in secret. And it seems he's inspired a copycat...
As the days pass and the body count rises, Frieda finds herself caught in a fatal tug-of-war between two killers: one who won't let her go, and another who can't let her live.
Crackling with suspense, packed with emotion, Sunday Silence is a psychological thriller perfect for fans of Elizabeth George and Paula Hawkins.
In French's disappointing seventh thriller starring London psychotherapist Frieda Klein (after 2017's Dark Saturday), Frieda discovers the decomposing corpse of Bruce Stringer, an ex-policeman she hired to help her search for murderer Dean Reeve, under the floorboards of her home. Though the police are certain that Reeve took his own life seven years earlier, Frieda is convinced that he still lives and is adding to his body count. Her belief that Reeve killed her investigator is buttressed when another body surfaces that of an electrician who gave Stringer information about Reeve. Frieda sets aside her practice to investigate. Six months later, the police have made no progress, and Frieda resumes seeing patients. Then her niece is abducted and other people she knows are attacked, leading the therapist to believe that Reeve has inspired another psychopath. French, the husband-wife writing team of Sean French and Nicci Gerard, offers nothing new to anyone who's read a copycat serial killer novel before.
