Publisher's Summary

Day of the Dead is the final book in the best-selling, critically acclaimed Frieda Klein series from number one best seller Nicci French. 

At long last, a final reckoning is coming for Frieda Klein....

In a north London high street, a runaway vehicle crashes to a halt. The man in the driving seat was murdered a week earlier. On Hampstead Heath, a bonfire blazes: in the flames lies the next victim. As autumn leaves fall, a serial killer runs amok in the capital, playing games with the police. The death toll is rising fast, and the investigation is floundering. But this is no ordinary killer, and every new victim is intended as a message to just one woman. Because psychologist Frieda Klein is in hiding. And someone is coming to find her....

After seven stunning novels, Frieda Klein's duel with her dark nemesis finally comes to a climax - and only one can make it out alive.

What An Anticlimax!

I enjoyed all the books in the Frieda Klein series and could not wait for the audio book of the great finale to be released. What an anticlimax! At first I thought I had downloaded the wrong title. The detailed description of the van crashing into the shop was devoid of any connection to the Friday Klein storyline and was not a significant event in the overall plot. By the time familiar characters emerged I was both frustrated and resigned to the fact that this was not going to be a compelling read. There would be a series of incidents and auxiliary characters that would just serve as padding and eventually the much anticipated confrontation between Frieda and Dean would take place. The conclusion was one of confusion as far as I'm concered. On a positive note, the story is over and the good triumphed over evil. Why complain?

Wonderful story!

I have always loved Nicci French and this conclusion to the Dean Reeve saga didn't disappoint.

what do i do now

I have just finished the last book in the Freida Kline series and how I have enjoyed each and every book. I feel as if I have lost friends as I have had to say goodbye to this series.
What a remarkable and enjoyable story each book building on the last.
I hope so much there will be another one

Bored

I’ve loved Nicki French books, ‘Until it’s over’ was a particular favourite and I enjoyed the first few of the Freida Klein books but after that I started feeling the story of Klein versus Reeves was just being stretched for too long. I felt nothing much happened in this book except it did finally end the series. The final showdown was boring. Disappointed. I think I will move on to different authors now.

Disappointing

I had anticipated this book for some months but unfortunately it was disappointing, storyline was confused and a lot of it felt like padding and unnecessary page filling rather than true storytelling and living up to the expectations I had from previous books. Felt a little let down with this, narrated well but storyline wasn’t strong.

It was an excellent finish to the series.

Brilliant ending to a fantastic series of books. All the main characters took on lives oft theirr own. I felt as if I knew them
So disappointed there will be no more visits to Frieda s world

Disappointing and too far fetched to engage with!

I liked the early books in this series but the later ones have grown more and more far fetched. I know with crime stories you need to ‘suspend your disbelief’ but really this one is just beyond my ability to do that!

Lola’s character was quite ridiculous anyway but made even more so through the characterisation from the narrator. A shame but I think this book needs to bring the Frieda Klein stories to a close.

A top notch finale to the enthralling series.

The narration of the finale is as perfect as it is throughout Beth Chambers's superb sequence of readings.

What a disappinting finale to the series.

Don't waste your money on this. The series started well but went down hill mid way. Nicci French should have put an end to Frieda Klein on Thursday rather than letting her struggle on till Sunday and beyond Such a shame. What was a winning formula became spread far too thin.

No more Freida Klein? what now?

Thoroughly enjoyed every Frieda Klein episode. Can Nicci French come up with another great series like this? hope so.
