0.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Blue Monday is the thrilling first novel in Nicci French's top-ten best-selling killer new series introducing psychotherapist Frieda Klein.

Monday: five-year-old Matthew Faraday is abducted. His face is splashed across newspaper front pages. His parents and the police are desperate. Can anyone help find their little boy before it is too late?

Psychotherapist Frieda Klein just might know something.

One of her patients describes dreams of seizing a boy who is the spitting image of Matthew.

Convinced at first the police will dismiss her fears out of hand, Frieda reluctantly finds herself drawn into the heart of the case.

A previous abduction, from twenty years ago, suggests a new lead - one that only Frieda, an expert on the minds of disturbed individuals, can uncover.

Struggling to make sense of this terrifying investigation, Frieda will face her darkest fears in the hunt for a clever and brutal killer...Praise for Nicci French: "Nicci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition.

No one understands human psychological frailty better.

No one writes better about grief, love, fear or emotional damage. Not many books are as insightful as they are addictive; Nicci French's are." (Sophie Hannah). "A brilliantly crafted new crime series." (Daily Mirror). "Terrific. The writing is pacy, the jaw-dropping twists are plentiful." (Short List). "One of French's hardest-to-put-down novels." (Sunday Express). "French is undeniably at the top of British psychological suspense writing, expert in the unguessable twist, supremely skilled at ratcheting up the tension." (Observer). "A nerve-jangling and addictive read." (Daily Express).

Review by

How can a story be left very reluctantly at Chapter 10 and be rated 5 stars....then on restarting be abandoned in boredom a few lines in? A lot I think has to to with the lovey dovey scene I "walked" in on. If I want lovey dovey I won't pick up a crime book. Nicci French are a married couple? They need to keep that out of their books and keep with what are normally riveting white knuckle rides.
