Publisher's Summary

Louise Penny says the Frieda Klein novels are "fabulous."

Joseph Finder  says they're "in the rich vein of Kate Atkinson."

And Tami Hoag calls them "truly unique."

Now the final book in this extraordinary series is here. And it's an ending you'll never forget.

A decade ago, psychologist Frieda Klein was sucked into the orbit of Dean Reeve - a killer able to impersonate almost anyone, a man who can disappear without a trace, a psychopath obsessed with Frieda herself.

In the years since, Frieda has worked with - and sometimes against - the London police in solving their most baffling cases. But now she's in hiding, driven to isolation by Reeve. When a series of murders announces his return, Frieda must emerge from the shadows to confront her nemesis. And it's a showdown she might not survive.

Criminology student Lola Hayes has tracked Frieda down with a single-minded pursuit: she wants to delve inside the mind of a woman besieged by darkness. But in following every move Frieda makes, Lola is exposing herself to the same terrors - and the same twisted fixation of a diabolical psychopath.  

This gripping cat-and-mouse thriller pits one of the most fascinating characters in contemporary fiction against an enemy like none other. Smart, sophisticated, and spellbinding, it's an audiobook that will leave you breathless.

Final installment

Sad to see this series end as I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. This final installment is no exception. I will miss all of these characters and the authors wrapped up this final storyline beautifully.

Glad it's over.

I was a fan of this series but it just got so overwrought. I read this basically because I needed closure and, I have to admit, toward the end I just wanted it to be over. Frieda is a very tedious character. Beth Chalmers have another great performance.

Unbelievably Repetitive!

I love all of the Ninni French books , but this one was so repetitive, and unnecessarily dragged that truly tried my patience.
The Narration was excellent.

Satisfying conclusion to a great series

Sometimes series over-extend their stay or fizzle out to weak repetitions, but not Nikki French’s Frieda Klein series. This eighth volume is perhaps the most satisfying conclusion I’ve read. It is a complete novel in itself, introducing new and fully developed characters while not abandoning the familiar ones that have threaded their way through the previous novels. It all makes sense, all the ends are wrapped up, and yet you have the idea that the characters live on in the world. There’s no cliffhanger, no desperation to urge French to resurrect Frieda, just a sense of rightness.

I do look forward to other Nikki French books though.

Every fan must see how the Dean Reeves - Frieda Klein Saga Ends

I think i was mostly waiting for this book to get back into the Frieda Klein World created by this reader. But of course I had to find out how the Dean Reeves saga ended. This plot involves Frieda’s obsession with the hidden rivers of London. Dean, of course, knows all about it. Seemed a bit strained. The is a new character, a student who I’d doing a dissertation on Frieda. Too many pages are devoted to her flighty personality. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the book immensely

Is the series over?

All the reviews say the series is finished. I hope that isn’t so yet the whole series has been building up to the final confrontation between Freida and Dean.
I think Freida has more stories to tell but I guess that is up to the authors. If so thank you for a great series!

Masterful

This story brought the past 7 books to an end with masterful recollection, the tremendous all encompassing storyline was necessary for this tome to be exceedingly successful. Thanks to the authors. Bravo! I might enjoy more Freita Cline now that this breathtaking saga is complete. She is a friend.
