Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling authors Nicci Gerard and Sean French, writing as Nicci French, have sold more than eight million copies of their books worldwide. But nothing they've written written before has grabbed the attention of reviewers and listeners like Blue Monday and its iconic heroine, Frieda Klein.
In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it a "superb psychological thriller...with brooding atmosphere, sustained suspense, a last-minute plot twist, and memorable cast of characters."
In Tuesday's Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man's identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can't shake the feeling that the past isn't done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?
A masterpiece of paranoia, Tuesday's Gone draws listeners inexorably into a fractured and faithless world as it brilliantly confirms Frieda Klein as a quintessential heroine for our times.

I like this series but...

Just finished a four day marathon with the first two books of this new series. Loved the first one, and only liked this one. Narrator is excellent, and I like the co-starring characters that will no doubt populate the rest of these books (5 more? if we're to follow the days of the week concept) My favorite peripheral character is Joseph, the Ukrainian handyman. This book was always going to be tough because the first one was so excellent. it got a little bogged down in trying to perpetuate the main plot from book one, while simultaneously introducing new bad guys who were not nearly so thrillingly bad as the bad guys from Blue Monday. I will buy the subsequent books though, it does pass the "can't wait for the next one" test! Do get Blue Monday first, before you buy this one though. Definitely need the background to enjoy it.
