I LOVE CRIME FICTION! We have yet another sizzling thriller to enter into this year’s “keep the lights on while reading” novels. Critics are calling SUNDAY SILENCE by Nicci French (WilliamMorrow), unsettling and riveting. It’s the 7th in the Frieda Klein Series. This was the first one I’ve read, but I’m definitely going back to revisit the previous books in the series.
It started with Monday. But it doesn’t end with Sunday.
Frieda Klein is many things – lover of London, psychologist, frequent police consultant, and now she’s a person of interest in a murder case. A body is discovered in the most unlikely of places: beneath the floorboards of Frieda’s house. The corpse is only months old, but the chief suspect appears to have died more than seven years ago.
Except as Frieda knows, he’s alive and living in secret. And it seems he’s inspired a copycat. As the days pass and the body count rises, Frieda finds herself caught in a fatal tug-of-war between two killers: one who won’t let her go, and another who can’t let her live.
What I found to be the heart of this novel was its precise crime procedural plotting. The stakes kept being raised, and I was along for the whole ride with Frieda, both personally and professionally, step by step. Unlike many crime/thrillers we’ve been reading, SUNDAY SILENCE doesn’t happen over a short amount of time. It takes months, so there’s a certain musical flow to the pacing of the writing.
The best surprise is, who Nicci French is ….
