Publisher's Summary

It was an open-and-shut case when 18-year-old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the brutal murder of her family; she's been incarcerated ever since. When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to assess Hannah, she reluctantly agrees. What she finds horrifies her....
Frieda is haunted by the thought that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family. Frieda soon begins to realise that she's up against someone who'll go to any lengths to protect themselves....

A very disappointing read.

Not having read any other books by this author I was confused by the frequent references to previous characters and events. The story moved at a snail's pace and the final outcome was ridiculously contrived. The main character was smug, arrogant and utterly annoying, so much so that I was hoping that she would ultimately be proved wrong. This,however, would hardly be possible as most of the police were portrayed as incompetent, devious or corrupt.

OK but a little similar to previous volumes

Would you consider the audio edition of Saturday Requiem to be better than the print version?

can't say only ever listen to books very rarely read an actual book

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Carlson, and Joseph, although they didn't feature quite so much this time, if there is going to be a Sunday, and I hope there will be I think Frieda needs to get a bit of OOOmph

Have you listened to any of Beth Chalmers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, up there with the best, she has such a lovely reading voice..

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, not at all I like to savour the stories from Nicci French

Any additional comments?

Yes, not as good as previous instalments a few similarities to the storyline, definitely trailed off towards the end, and a bit of a mediocre ending to be honest
