Blue Monday

Best-selling authors Nicci French was back with a vengeance and stepped away from her usual stand alone novels. Now they've introduced you to the Frieda Klein series. In Blue Monday, the first book in the Frieda Klein series, it all started with a disappearance of Joanna Vine. Now fast-forward to twenty-two years later, Frieda Klein was a psychotherapist in London. We saw things from her eyes on her relationship with Sandy, her relations with her sister-in-law and niece, and how she worked with the police on a real difficult case. Alan Dekker was her newest client who'd been having unusual dreams. And when there was a kidnapping, the images from Alan's dreams were most uncanny and similar to the missing boy. She decided to dig deep into his past and discovered a shocking twist. The closer she was to the truth, the more in danger she would be. There was a lot of twists and turns right to the end. What a great debut to this series. You'll be rooting for Frieda in no time.

This was a nice gripping new thriller from Nicci French. I did feel bad for Joanna Vine's family and for Frieda as well. I liked how she  had related to her superiors and to her family. Alan Dekker intrigued me in some parts.  I loved the central London location for the series and the depicted scenic settings as well. This sent me bone-chilling numbness towards the end that you leave you breathless and stunned, even right after I closed the book. Great drama, plenty of heart-breaking suspense and action, and lot of intrigue for this mystery.

Are you having a blue Monday? Cheer up with this thriller today!
