Brilliantly crafted . . . masterly control of suspense (Daily Mirror)

Tense, frightening, gripping (Easy Living)

Nerve-tingling and addictive (Daily Express)


Thursday's Children by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the bestselling Frieda Klein series, following Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.

When psychotherapist Frieda Klein left the sleepy Suffolk coastal town in which she grew up she never intended to return. Left behind were friends, family, lives and loves but alongside them, painful memories; a past she wouldn't allow to destroy her.

Then, years later, an old classmate appears in London asking Frieda to help her teenage daughter and long buried memories resurface. Death soon follows, leaving Frieda no choice but to return home to confront her past. And the monsters no one else believed were real . . .

Through a fog of conflicting accounts, hidden agendas and questionable alibis, Frieda can trust no one as she tries to piece together the shocking truth, past and present. Before another innocent dies.

When it comes to psychological suspense, there's none better than Nicci French. And Thursday's Children is Nicci French at her very best.

There are three previous novels in the Frieda Klein series; look out for Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.

Praise for the Frieda Klein series:

'Brilliantly crafted . . . masterly control of suspense' Daily Mirror

3.0 von 5 Sternen The difficult 4th? 18. April 2014

Not quite as thrilling as the first 3 books. I miss the thrill of a parallel story. And The sudden turn she makes had me wondering why??????

I think if you hadn't read the previous Frieda Klein novels it would have been difficult to keep track of the characters in this novel. I had read the previous 3 in the series and enjoyed this one but thought that the authors were maybe trying to keep too many strands going so that it seemed somewhat bitty at times and was not so fast paced and unputdownable as most Nikki French novels.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Well written psychological mystery 14. April 2014

This is a well written interesting psychological mystery featuring Frieda Klein, a psychotherapist who has been a bit of a trouble magnet in earlier books in the series (Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday) written by wife and husband duo Nicci Gerard and Sean French.

Frieda is reflecting that Thursday is the worst day of the week when she has an unexpected visitor from her past that changes her world. Maddie Cappel was at school with Freida twenty three years ago in Braxton, a small town north of London. Maddie asks Frieda to talk to her teenage daughter, Becky, who has become withdrawn and won't eat. During therapy Becky reluctantly tells Frieda that she was raped during a home invasion by a man wearing a balaclava who says "Don't think of telling anyone sweetheart. Nobody will believe you."

This is an epiphany for Frieda as she recalls the very same words being said to her years ago when she was raped in Braxton when she was sixteen. She did tell her mother and the police but they didn't believe her. Frieda left home for London and has never gone back again. The frightening thing is that it is clear that the rapist is still there and still active.

During her troubled times Frieda has been in therapy but has never been able to tell anyone about this experience. Now she knows that she must face up to her ghosts, tell her circle of close and loving friends in London about it and go to Braxton to find out what happened on that night twenty three years ago when she was the only member of her peer group who missed going to a pop concert with "Thursday's Children".

The authors then takes us back to Braxton to see what has happened to Frieda's group of school friends. In a few paragraphs they are able to clearly sketch the character of each school friend and what they have become over the last twenty three years. The reunion with some is easy but others have moved on and away from Frieda and are suspicious about her return. Freida goes back to her mother, to the police who investigated her case and hunts for the member of her group who might have attacked her. It is an interesting study of the impact of going back to a small town community that she has moved on from many years ago.

Overall I enjoyed this well written psychological mystery. Most of the time it is a standalone book but there are a couple of important links to characters in Frieda's other adventures that didn't allow me to fully appreciate the story. At the moment I haven't made up my mind about whether I will be re-visiting her adventures on earlier days of the week.

My thanks to Net Galley and the publisher for providing a copy of this book for an honest review.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Quality 10. April 2014
Von Tez Miller - Veröffentlicht auf

Nicci French is one of the few crime authors whose work I've read up to date. THURSDAY'S CHILDREN is another quality instalment in the Frieda Klein series, sad in many different circumstances. Victims are chosen specifically because the perp knows no one will believe them. That the victims' own mothers don't believe their daughters goes to show that the perp was correct in that, and it says a lot about society. It's depressing. There's victim-blaming and victim-shaming, and it's hard to read.

But this novel is less about daughters than it is about mothers:

-There's a tiny subplot involving poor Sasha, who's having a tough time.
-Frieda's mother is dying, and even if she wasn't, she'd still be unlikeable. Juliet Klein's granddaughter has had her issues, "Because her mother's a slut. Yes."
-The most recent victim's mother lashes out at Frieda: "Don't you talk to me in that calm voice. You don't understand. You'll never understand. You're not a mother. You're just a machine. You don't know what it feels like HERE."

It's that quote by Maddie that irks me the most. And it says a lot about society that unfortunately a lot of people would agree with her. Women who aren't mothers, by choice or otherwise, are treated as a lower species, inhuman. And as a non-mother, I do take offence to that. It's possible to be a mother without being obnoxious and derogatory about it, but unfortunately Maddie... That she's a victim's mother is no excuse for her to lash out at innocent people like Frieda.

Fingers crossed there's a fifth Frieda Klein novel coming soon. I love catching up with the gang, especially Josef, the tradie with a heart of gold.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Development of a psychotherapist 14. April 2014
Von Marion Pennink-Tijsseling - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This is the fourth Frieda Klein novel I have read - suspenseful as a thriller, but also interesting because the protagonist grows more mature and at ease with herself - in a very credible way. Makes it an ever more enjoyable read.
