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.

Phenomenal book!

What an extraordinary and highly skilful finale to this Frieda Klein series. Nicci French authors are truly phenomenal. Congratulations on a masterful layered and gripping story.
Beth Chalmers is a fabulous narrator. She has a clear relaxed voice and moves seamlessly between the characters as she adopts their individual voices. A joy to listen to her ease and flow. . I highly recommend this series
A delightful experience Thank you to all concerned Susan

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?

Fantastic series - and final book

Wonderful, engaging Lacey 8-book series. Sad this is the last one, though! Looking forward to the authors’ next series.

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.
