In Nicci's French's thrilling fifth book, London psychotherapist Frieda Klein herself becomes the prime suspect in a murder   A bloated corpse turns up in the Thames, throat slashed, and the only clue is a hospital wristband reading Dr. F. Klein. Frieda is taken to see the body and realizes with horror that it is Sandy, her ex-boyfriend. She's certain that the killer is Dean Reeve--the man who has never stopped haunting her. But the police think he has been dead for years, and Frieda is their number one suspect. With few options, Frieda goes on the run to save herself and try to uncover the truth.   Praise for the Frieda Klein Mystery series:   "Fierce, fascinating, and full of insight, Frieda Klein is irresistible." --Val McDermid, bestselling author of Splinter the Silence    "Sophisticated, gripping, addictive. Crime novels that stand head and shoulders above the competition." --Sophie Hannah, bestselling author of Woman with a Secret   "Complex psychological suspense at its best." --Booklist (starred review)… (més)

While I was thoroughly engaged by Friday On My Mind, the fifth book in author Nicci French’s mystery series, the plot was one of the weaker ones and required the reader to accept a lot that didn’t really make a lot of sense. I think this book would most likely only appeal to those of us who are already enthralled by Frieda Klein and are willing to follow her no matter how messy the story becomes.

When Frieda’s ex-lover is pulled from the Thames River with his throat cut, she immediately believes it is the work of her stalker, Dean Reeve. But as she is the only one who believes Reeve is still alive suspicion actually falls on Frieda. When it gets to the point of placing Frieda under arrest, she goes on the run and slowly uncovers some clues that lead her in another direction. Unfortunately, the actual murderer is keeping an eye on her and has plans to silence her forever.

The book moves at a fast pace and as Frieda becomes hunted by both the police and the murderer it builds to an exciting finish. This is a series that really needs to be read in order so as to understand Frieda’s motives, her friends staunch loyalty, and the ever present danger that lurks on the horizon. Well written with some dark humor inserted to lighten the atmosphere, Friday On My Mind, while not the best in the series, was, for me, both thrilling and addictive. ( )

Um, well I'm afraid I didn't enjoy this all that much. Frieda Klein is not an engaging or likeable character and that has left me a bit bored by this whole series.

I hope this writing team will leave the series now (or are there Saturday and Sunday books to come?) and go back to their original style of story telling which was gripping, exciting and thrilling. And we had the pleasure of meeting new characters with every new book's release. ( )

After Frieda's former friend was found dead, the suspicion fell on Frieda. She had to go down because the police were looking for her. Frieda would not be Frieda if she did not conduct her own investigations, which led to the death of her former lover. She was more or less on her own, only Joseph helped her.
Only with time did she get help from her nearest ally.
It was a very adventurous exciting reading. ( )

This is the fifth book in the Frieda Klein series. It starts with a bloated corpse floating down the Thames River. Once the police have pulled the body out of the water they check for identification but discover there is no wallet or cell phone. The fully clothed body of the man has a hospital band which reads Dr. F. Klein.

Frieda is now a suspect in a murder.

“It’s complicated being Frieda’s friend.” Reuben made that statement as a group of her friends and supporters were gathering, trying to figure out where she was. Frieda is accused of murder in this book and we are introduced to a new cast of detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department. My favorite detective, Malcolm Karlsson, is still making appearances in this series. Also a shadowy sort of character named Levin sits in and observes on an investigation. Not sure where he will fit in, reminds you of a CIA characters i movies.

Frieda puts me in mind of a more polished, cooler version of Jessica Fletcher of the Murder She Wrote stories. There is always a murder connecting and threading itself into her life. It’s not a cozy mystery for sure. I was sad to read this one as I liked the character who departed.

Foodie stuff….…

“She went to the shops and bought herself enough for the next few days; milk, bread and butter, some bags of salad and Sicilian tomatoes, salty blue cheese, smoked salmon, raspberries and a little carton of cream.

Once home, she had a long bath, then roamed through each room, making doubly sure everything was in its proper place. She ate smoked salmon on rye bread and drank a single glass of white wine." ( )

FRIDAY ON MY MIND: A FRIEDA KLEIN MYSTERY by Nicci French is Book 5 in this series.
I was hesitant about this title. The plot seemed a bit unbelievable - the police accusing and condemning Frieda of murder; with very little evidence. Crawford and Halbrook are out for revenge and their pursuit of Frieda sends her into hiding. But I ended up liking it very much. FRIDAY ON MY MIND delves deeply into Frieda’s own personality with very meaningful examples of friendship, loyalty, trust and kindness.
I am very attached to the ‘river’ thread that runs through these titles. I liked the scene (p.200-202) when Frieda asks Ethan to kneel on the ground and put his ear to the manhole cover. Frieda explains that the sound he hears is water. FK “Long, long ago there was a river, a little river”…”But then they hid the river. That’s it, down there. It’s called Earl’s Sluice.”
This conversation is in reference to the forgotten, buried River Halbrook. The analogy between Frieda’s personality and the buried, forgotten rivers of London really resonates with me.
I did enjoy this suspenseful, riveting, interesting title. ( )
