My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Blue Monday is the thrilling first novel in Nicci French’s top-ten bestselling killer new series introducing psychotherapist Frieda Klein *** Monday: five-year-old Matthew Faraday is abducted. His face is splashed across newspaper front pages. His parents and the police are desperate. Can anyone help find their little boy before it is too late? Psychotherapist Frieda Klein just might know something.
What an excellent opening book in a new series for author Nicci French. The story is so polished it glitters, despite the awfulness of the crime. Her relationship with the police, her family and her mentor and his builder are so well drawn you feel you could be standing in the room with her. The twist is excellent and the ending leaves you begging for more. I thoroughly recommend this for readers of psychological fiction and crime, thriller and mystery. This book can hold its own against anything written by Jonathan Kellerman and Harlan Coben.
