Sunday Morning Coming Down by Nicci French
All at once the flat was full of noises. The phone rang, stopped, then rang again. The mobile rattled on the table. The doorbell sounded once, twice, and at the same time there was a thumping sound on the door itself. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson lifted himself from his chair on to his crutches, moved to the door and opened it.
Psychotherapist Dr Frieda Klein once again finds herself in the midst of a criminal investigation when the rotting body of an ex-policeman is found beneath the floorboards of her house.
The corpse is only months old but the main suspect, murderer Dean Reeve, died over seven years ago.
As the killer picks off his next victims and her home is turned into a crime scene, Frieda's old life seems like a hazy dream.
With eyes of the world upon her and no answers from the police, Frieda realizes that she will have to track this killer before he tracks down those she loves.
I have really, really enjoyed all the Frieda Klein books, written by the husband/wife team, Nicci French. This 7th book is no exception. My understanding is that there will be one more book in the series and I wish I had it in my hands right now. The book begins with a body being discovered under the floorboards of Frieda's living room. It's a message to her. Frieda has maintained for book after book that Dean Reeve is still alive, still involved in her life - sometimes as a protector - sometimes as a threat. Soon, Frieda's friends and patients are in danger. Serious danger. The main story arc is closing in on the finish. And I cannot wait!! This series is highly recommended.
This book is available in large paperback from Book Depository.
