Publisher's Summary

Louise Penny says Nicci French's books are "fabulous".

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

And Tami Hoag calls them "truly unique".

Enter the world of Nicci French with Dark Saturday, an electrifying, sophisticated psychological thriller about past crimes and present dangers, featuring an unforgettable protagonist....

A decade ago 18-year-old Hannah Docherty was arrested for the shocking murder of her family. It was an open-and-shut case, and Hannah has been incarcerated in a secure psychiatric hospital ever since.

When psychotherapist Frieda Klein is asked to meet Hannah and give her assessment, she reluctantly agrees. But what she finds horrifies her. Hannah has become a tragic figure, old before her time. And Frieda is haunted by the idea that Hannah might be as much of a victim as her family - that she might, in fact, be innocent.

As Hannah's case takes hold of her, Frieda begins to realize that she's up against someone who will go to any lengths to keep the truth from surfacing - even kill again.

Utterly compelling and enthralling, Dark Saturday speeds listeners down a twisting trail of secrets, suspense, and murder.

    "Nicci French returns; gloriously imaginative."

    Only problem with this series is that now I have to wait for the next installment. If you are a French fan, you will be happy to find this novel holds up the storyline well (if you are not a Nicci French fan then what have you been waiging for?). Ms. French does an awesome job giving the reader enough background (just enough so that it is not tiresome to fans that have dead each book of the series in order) so that you can. jump in the pool from any location (pick up any book in the series) and you won't. break stride. Kudos to this marvelous author & talented narrator; as it is easy to tell I am delighted by both!

    "Warning ⚠️Cliffhanger Ahead⚠️"

    Another fantastic book in this series. Love the characters and the narration is perfect. However, now I have to wait for the next book for resolution of a significant story line! Oh well, it is worth the wait!

    "I love Frieda Klein"

    Freida Kleins' character is unique. She is strong, intelligent, persistent and compassionate. Despite cherishing her time alone, she has a wonderful tight circle of quirky friends. The story line is sharp and evolves at a good pace.The reader is excellent. I love this series and can't wait for the next one.My favourite read this year.

    "It was a lot of work to listen to"

    Honesty I didn't enjoy it. Too many characters, couldn't remember who was who and the ending was horrible.

    "My favorite of the first six"

    Loved it best despite an implausible twist. I had listened to it first, realized it was series, listened to the first five and listened to this again. Why? To re- hear the words of Commissioner Crawford and Hal Bradshaw. At this point Frieda has solved about 15 murders, found three kidnapped persons and saved two from imminent death. She barely survived a murder attempt trying to save someone else. Yet Commissioner Crawford still regards her as a disreputable person and Bradshaw, who has solved nothing, as a genius. Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, he still does not believe Dean Reeves is alive. Maybe he will come to his senses in the next book. Must read it.

    "Dark Saturday"

    I couldn't wait for this book to be released and it lived up to my expectations. I listened to it in one afternoon and evening. I think this is the best book in this series. I have to admit the killer was a surprise but I was not surprised at the fate of poor Hannah.

    "Excellent job from Beth Chalmers"

    Beth Chalmers is amazing so talented. She doesn't miss a beat when changing characters. This is my first Nicci French and won't be the last as long as Beth is narrating.

    Story
    "Frieda Klein never disappoints."
    Would you listen to Dark Saturday again? Why?

    I'm not sure I'd listen to it again, although Beth Chalmers is extremely talented and makes a very enjoyable listen. Once you know "who done it" - well - that's half the fun.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes! I actually didn't figure this out until the very, very end. And there were plenty of believable twists.


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

    Frieda, of course. And I love her transitions, which are seamless.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but it was very enjoyable all the same.


    Any additional comments?

    I will always come back to a Nikki French book. This writing duo is a very reliable choice for a great read. I really didn't want it to end.
