Tuesday's Gone: A Frieda Klein Novel, Book 2

In Tuesday's Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man's identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can't shake the feeling that the past isn't done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

Publisher's Summary

Internationally best-selling authors Nicci Gerard and Sean French, writing as Nicci French, have sold more than eight million copies of their books worldwide. But nothing they've written written before has grabbed the attention of reviewers and listeners like Blue Monday and its iconic heroine, Frieda Klein.

In a starred review, Publishers Weekly called it a "superb psychological thriller...with brooding atmosphere, sustained suspense, a last-minute plot twist, and memorable cast of characters."

In Tuesday's Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man's identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can't shake the feeling that the past isn't done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?

A masterpiece of paranoia, Tuesday's Gone draws listeners inexorably into a fractured and faithless world as it brilliantly confirms Frieda Klein as a quintessential heroine for our times.

    "I like this series but..."

    Just finished a four day marathon with the first two books of this new series. Loved the first one, and only liked this one. Narrator is excellent, and I like the co-starring characters that will no doubt populate the rest of these books (5 more? if we're to follow the days of the week concept) My favorite peripheral character is Joseph, the Ukrainian handyman. This book was always going to be tough because the first one was so excellent. it got a little bogged down in trying to perpetuate the main plot from book one, while simultaneously introducing new bad guys who were not nearly so thrillingly bad as the bad guys from Blue Monday. I will buy the subsequent books though, it does pass the "can't wait for the next one" test! Do get Blue Monday first, before you buy this one though. Definitely need the background to enjoy it.

    "One of the best voice performances"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, this was a great story and well performed. The mystery aspect is solid, intriguing, and comes together well for resolution.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character, Frieda Klein is very interesting and likable, yet flawed enough to seem real.


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

    No, but this was very good. She does the main character wonderfully, and differentiates the female voices well. The accents do not make you cringe, and the male voices are not bad at all. She really makes it a performance.


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

    Yes, it was very hard to put it down for a while!

    Story
    "Terrific reader! You got so many voices right."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tuesday's Gone to be better than the print version?

    Yes, but I'm not qualified to say. However, the narration was top-quality and I look forward to more from Beth Chalmers


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Freda is a person who is very tough to read at first. But it introduced me to many things in the world of the psychotherapist. I ended up empathizing greatly with her and feeling that she was basically doing the right thing most of the time.


    Which character – as performed by Beth Chalmers – was your favorite?

    Well, she did a good job with Carlson. But she switched very deftly for different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was about a third of the way through where freedom really begins to care for Mary Laughton and others. That's what makes her believable. It makes the whole story rise above a normal whodunit.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the author has a terrific feel for London, and how to work with down and out people. The word s**t comes up a lot because they all have to deal with it.

    "More please!"

    I'm addicted - more please! In the second of the series we get to know more of the lives, trials and everyday cares and woes of the enigmatic, and oft times foolhardy Frieda, as well as her friends and colleagues in her tenuous police 'partnership'. Intriguing plot and the shadow of the psychopathic villain from the first book hovers throughout ... just scrumptious!

    Story
    "Won't read another Frieda Klein book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't catch on to things quickly. Who can tolerate the obvious being ignored and


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    NOT ANOTHER NICCI FRENCH's FRIEDA KLEIN thats for sure (hope I am spelling name correctly as I was listening and not reading print)


    What does Beth Chalmers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Easy to tell who is 'talking'. fluctuates intonation, not monotone, good pace.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    anger that we were to believe that no one, especially Frieda, just now started to realize the Dean/Alan connection. AND EVEN MORE that karlsson asked Frieda to work with the police, to work her 'magic' and then turns around and doubts and ridicules every thing she suggests


    Any additional comments?

    Just couldn't wait for it to be over.
