The stunning first book in a new series of psychological thrillers introducing an unforgettable London psychotherapist.
Frieda Klein is a solitary, incisive psychotherapist who spends her sleepless nights walking along the ancient rivers that have been forced underground in modern London. She believes that the world is a messy, uncontrollable place, but what we can control is what is inside our heads. This attitude is reflected in her own life, which is an austere one of refuge, personal integrity, and order.
The abduction of five-year-old Matthew Farraday provokes a national outcry and a desperate police hunt. And when his face is splashed over the newspapers, Frieda cannot ignore the coincidence: one of her patients has been having dreams in which he has a hunger for a child. A red-haired child he can describe in perfect detail, a child the spitting image of Matthew. She finds herself in the center of the investigation, serving as the reluctant sidekick of the chief inspector.
Drawing listeners into a haunting world in which the terrors of the mind have spilled over into real life, Blue Monday introduces a compelling protagonist and a chilling mystery that will appeal to listeners of dark crime fiction and fans of In Treatment and The Killing.

This was a good listen. It had a good story line and keep me guessing.
I will defiantly read/listen to more!
I liked it enough to read another book by the author.
Yes. It was interesting enough and there was enough storyline to interest me.
It was very predictable. The protagonist & detective relatively boring. Pace too slow and no real suspense.
One-note but workmanlike
The last hour of the book was the only interesting part of the whole book. It took forever to get to the point. Because the end was interesting, I am going to seek out the next in the "series'.... The narration was fun to listen to as I am American. I liked the accent.
Move it along quicker....less cursing. I want to read a story, not have to censor it.
If she read the whole thing by herself, she did amazing at the different voices and keeping them the same throughout.
The mom.....that whole part was a waste and too much cursing. I want to read a story, not censor it.
