When a corpse is found floating in the River Thames, the police can at least be sure that identifying the victim will be straightforward. Around the dead man's wrist is a hospital band. On it are the words 'Dr F. Klein'.
But psychotherapist Frieda Klein is very much alive. And, after evidence linking her to the murder is discovered, she becomes the prime suspect.

Win win Nicci French duo make another killing!

This is the fifth in the Frieda Klein psychological thriller series from husband and wife team Nicci French. Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone, Waiting for Wednesday and Thursday's Child precede Friday on my Mind which can be listened to as a stand-alone although the characters are fleshier if you're already hooked on the previous four.
The winning formula is cleverly worked out once more with the Nicci French strengths: a running pace throughout; slick, now dialogue; smart, taut language; sophisticated tightly controlled narrative; constantly racked-up suspense, intrigue and danger; metropolitan characters with complex lives and secrets. ..
Here psychotherapist Frieda is suspected of murdering an ex-patient, the man she loved, after his bloated body is washed up by the Thames, and she's on the run determined to find the real culprit. Beth Chalmers as narrator does a good job in giving depth to characters and maintaining that breakneck pace.

Excellent listen

This story felt intense, I had to keep listening to the next chapter and the next chapter. I will definitely get another book by Nicci French. I thought Beth Chalmers was excellent.
