The thrilling third novel starring London psychotherapistturned-detective Frieda Klein--from internationally bestselling author Nicci French

Nicci French's Blue Monday and Tuesday's Gone introduced the brilliant yet reclusive psychotherapist Frieda Klein to widespread critical acclaim, but Waiting for Wednesday promises to be her most haunting case yet.

Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can't piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents will offer a new angle on the case.

When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret, her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient's chance remark sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial killer who's long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own paranoid, 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 . . .

Flawlessly executed, Waiting for Wednesday is a penetrating, twisted novel of murder and neurosis with a jaw-dropping climax that will linger in readers' minds long after they have turned the last page.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* By all accounts Ruth Lennox—a wife and mother of three teenagers who was universally liked—led a perfect life until she was murdered in her London home, likely in a burglary gone wrong. But when the prime suspect is ruled out, DCI Malcolm Karlsson approaches psychotherapist Frieda Klein for help. The big question, to Klein, is what the victim’s secrets were, and a shocking one sets the case on end. Meanwhile, Klein, still fragile after being attacked (in Tuesday’s Gone, 2013), is so intrigued by the script in a contrived study of therapists that she follows a thread that leads her to a journalist working on a potential cold case involving missing girls. At the same time, the intuitive Klein gets messages from shadowy serial killer Dean Reeve (from Blue Monday, 2012), who both stalks and protects her, and she sorely misses her lover in America. There’s enough backstory for this third Frieda Klein mystery to stand alone, but the greatest pleasure is in following the series from the beginning to see the evolution of Klein, a detective of the mind, who endures a rough patch here but makes it through the darkness. Another compelling entry in this complex, suspenseful series. --Michele Leber
