Day of the Dead

A Frieda Klein Novel (8)




At long last, a reckoning is coming: the final novel in the internationally bestselling Frieda Klein series

On 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.

Nicci French

Nicci French is the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. Nicci Gerrard was born in June 1958 in Worcestershire. In the early eighties she taught English Literature in Sheffield, London and Los Angeles, but moved into publishing in 1985 with the launch of Women's Review, a magazine for women on art, literature and female issues. In 1989 she became acting literary editor at the New Statesman, before moving to the Observer, where she was deputy literary editor for five years, and then a feature writer and executive editor. It was while she was at the New Statesman that she met Sean French. Sean French was born in May 1959 in Bristol, to a British father and Swedish mother. In 1981 he won Vogue magazine's Writing Talent Contest, and from 1981 to 1986 he was their theatre critic. During that time he also worked at the Sunday Times as deputy literary editor and television critic, and was the film critic for Marie Claire and deputy editor of New Society. Sean and Nicci were married in Hackney in October 1990. Their daughters, Hadley and Molly, were born in 1991 and 1993.

Praise for Day of the Dead

A multi-layered plot that keeps you guessing until the final page.

Jane Corry, bestselling author of Blood Sisters

I love the Frieda Klein novels and this as good as they get. As thoughtful as it is gripping - masterful

Sabine Durrant, bestselling author of Lie With Me

The best crime novels combine great writing, compelling storylines, and memorable characters. You get all of that in a Nicci French, but you also get something more: a deep insight into what it means to be human, and how to live with pain and loss

Cara Hunter, Richard and Judy bestselling author of Close to Home

I loved Day of the Dead. Tension-filled, addictive and taut, with beautifully-drawn characters I won't forget. Nicci French just gets better and better

Laura Marshall, bestselling author of Friend Request

Nicci French lays out the characters with the effortless skill of a croupier dealing cards, and like a card trick, Day of the Dead builds to an ending that is as inevitable as it is unforeseeable. A masterclass in how to end a series.

The stunning climax of Frieda Klein's battle with her nemesis. And what a climax! Loved it
