Review: Sunday Silence by Nicci French

Nicci French’s 7th book in the Frieda Klein series is out and Kerry Hammond is here to tell us all about it. My Mom also read the book and loved it. 

London-based Psychotherapist Frieda Klein is back in her 7th book, Sunday Silence by Nicci French. It releases on January 9 from William Morrow Publishers in Trade Paperback. The series is written by a British husband and wife team, Nicci Gerard and Sean French, and they have been keeping readers on the edge of their seats with twists and turns since the first book to feature Frieda, Blue Monday.

In Sunday Silence, Frieda is immediately placed on the police radar when a body is found buried underneath the floorboards of her house. She believes she knows who the perpetrator is, a man who has killed before and is strangely obsessed with her. The problem is, this man supposedly died years before and the police refuse to believe Frieda when she tells them he is still alive. As the investigation progresses, it becomes clear that Frieda is facing not one but two obsessive killers. But it’s not Frieda who seems to be in danger, rather it’s each and every person she loves.

Frieda is a great character and I have always found her fascinating. She is intelligent, resourceful, and fiercely loyal to her friends and family. She approaches things in a calm and calculating manner, always analyzing the situation rather than losing her head. She is able to see what the police can’t and is always far ahead of them in solving the murder, but she struggles with trying to convince them that her analysis is the correct one. This is great series and I would recommend that any new reader start with the first book in order to get to know the characters and best follow the progression of the storyline.

This book was provided to Mystery Playground by the publisher. The review is fair and independent.
