Good book but I would have understood more if I had read the whole series. ( )

OK I haven't read any of the other Frieda Klien books and this probably has detracted from my enjoyment of this book a bit. Saying that though I was gripped by this book, and found it difficult to put down in the two days that I read it.
It is fast paced and with almost continuous action, in fact at the beginning it was tricky keeping up with the names of characters. This again is due to jumping into the middle of a series but this settles down shortly into the book.
Ohh and it ends of a bit of a cliffhanger, enough to make you eagerly await the next installment but not so bad as to be annoying.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
What a compelling read! I enjoyed Sunday Silence so much. it's part of a series, but not having read any of the others, it stands on its own. Dr Frieda Klein is a complex character, a psychologist that helps the police in London. A body is found under her living room floor. And the investigation begins. I look forward to reading the first six in the series. ( )

SUNDAY SILENCE by Nicci French. This is the seventh (but not the last) book in the Frieda Klein Mystery series. Fans are eagerly awaiting the last, (supposedly) last installment in the series to be published in July, 2018.
SUNDAY SILENCE opens one second after the last words are uttered from Book 6, DARK SATURDAY.
DCI Karlsson opens the door to Frieda’s house and meets Chief Inspector Petra Burge, there to investigate the body hidden under the floorboards.
This is a very suspenseful, mysterious, emotional plot; a Dean Reeve wanna-be/copycat is after Frieda’s family of friends and ultimately, Frieda herself.
The last sentence of the book - Frieda visits Levin and entreaties, “Make me disappear.”

I do get my ‘river fix’. Frieda is walking with Chief Inspector Petra Burge near Elephant & Castle (outside the old City walls). 150 years ago, the area was marshland and then it was drained and banked. Frieda talks about the Neckinger River where tanning works used to be. Now, “the river is dirtied, clogged up, buried…” But it is still there somewhere. FK “This was an area for things that London needed but didn’t want to look at or think about or smell. It’s a useful reminder.”

Haunting, emotional, puzzling, suspenseful, mysterious - highly recommended. ( )

Declared a person of interest when a body is discovered under the floor of her home, London psychologist Frieda Klein realizes that a copycat killer is responsible.
