Good thriller with an ending which leaves you hoping for more ...

Half of the book is kind of a reminder of what happened in the first book of the series. Maybe it's to facilitate readers who did not read the first book in the series "Blue Monday", to understand where certain characters came from, and to justify some actions described in this book. A lot of descriptions of the history of London, primarily related to its streets. One feels a certain affection for this city, transmitted through the character of Frieda Klein. And the very description of London's weather, gloomy: snow, rain... it is like a background to the evil human behaviour. The impression is that the city is pushing people to commit crimes. Some dialogues I found unnecessary long. There is a description of a certain repulsive detail that is present during one of causes of death, was already used in the first book. It seems to me that there is little need for so many characters. While on the other hand, maybe they will play a significant role in next books in this series. The book is very cleverly and very knowledgeable written. The last pages seemed to me a little too sentimental. And the character from the first book, who is continuing to pursue Frieda Klein, is not needed, it had "to die " in the pages of the second book . But it seems that he's going to pursue for much longer not only EK, but the reader as well.

This is the first book I've read by Nicci French.

The story was interesting and contained plenty of twists and turns for me.

I was a little annoyed by the use of one particular 'curse' word by characters who were having conversations with colleagues about work related subjects - it seemed unprofessional coming from characters who occupy positions where professionalism would be routinely expected.

Overall, an interesting book and well worth reading. I don't feel particularly motivated to go back and read the first book in the series, at least in part due to the level of detail from it that carried over into this one (which is the second book). I do look forward to reading the third book when it comes out.

I look for the Nicci French books, above all, and agree the writing is brilliant. Insight into human nature is startling at times -- how could they know so much about our secrets? They're not afraid to offer characters who are vegetarian, which doesn't occur in American Literature, good for them. Most of all the husband-wife writing team write for us, the readers, rather than for good reviews, and they respect our intelligence!

Engrossing series at the intersection of murder investigation and psychotherapy. Frieda Klein is fascinating character - complex, somewhat messed up, brilliant.
