This is the seventh in the series of the Dr Frieda Klein books. I haven't read every single book in the series, only Blue Monday and Friday on my Mind, but I don't feel that not having read all of the previous books hampered my understanding in any way.
Frieda is a complex character, but when harm comes to those close to her, she always tries to help them without a thought for her own safety. I love the family atmosphere between Frieda's friends and how they all come together to support each other and Frieda.
At certain points in the book, I felt like I could predict what was going to happen next. However, the story was told in such a way that the atmosphere was still tense, so even though I was expecting what came next, I still found myself on edge waiting to find out exactly how the events would happen.
I found the parts told from the killers perspective particularly interesting. Being inside their head was shocking and thrilling at the same time. It added to the intrigue of the plot both before I found out who it was and after.
The only slight negative for me was that the ending didn't feel extremely satisfying. There were loose ends that needed tying up and although I understand that this is to keep the reader in suspense until the next book in the series, personally I prefer things a bit neater. I'll definitely read the next book when it comes out though, as I'm hoping the loose ends will be tied up there.
Overall, I'm giving this book 4 out of 5. It was a tense read which kept me guessing and I've definitely warmed to Frieda Klein.
