Thursday's Children by Nicci French is the fourth novel in the bestselling Frieda Klein series, following Blue Monday, Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday. "icci French's sophisticated, compassionate and gripping crime novels stand head and shoulders above the competition." (Sophie Hannah). Two crimes, generations apart...Twenty years ago teenager Frieda Klein was brutally attacked in her own home. No one believed her - not the police, not her mother, not her friends. She left town, trained as a psychologist and never went back. Now an old classmate has shown up. She wants help with her daughter, who claims to have been attacked at home. An attack eerily similar to the one on Frieda. No one else believes the girl's story. Now - with a school reunion in the offing - Frieda returns to the darkness she fled. To the small town which refused to help her and which hides a terrible secret. Because someone at the reunion knows what happened. And they'll stop at nothing to prevent Frieda discovering the truth...Praise for the Frieda Klein series: "Expert in the unguessable twist, supremely at ratcheting up the tension." (Easy Living). "French leads the field." (Sunday Express). "Brilliantly crafted...masterly control of suspense." (Daily Mirror). "Magnificent." (Evening Standard). "A nerve-jangling and addictive read." (Daily Express). Nicci French is the pseudonym for the writing partnership of journalists Nicci Gerrard and Sean French. The couple are married and live in Suffolk. There are fourteen other bestselling novels by Nicci French, all published by Penguin. Blue Monday was the first thrilling instalment in the Frieda Klein series, followed by Tuesday's Gone and Waiting for Wednesday.

Product Description:

Fierce, fascinating and full of insight, Frieda Klein is irresistible. Val McDermid, bestselling author of Splinter the Silence
The electrifying fourth book in the internationally bestselling Frieda Klein Mystery series

Frieda Klein is uninterested in catching up on old times when her former classmate, Maddie Capel, shows up at her door until she hears about Maddie s troubled daughter, Becky. The teenager claims she was raped in her own bed one night while her mother was downstairs. Her assailant left her with a warning: Don t think of telling anyone, sweetheart. Nobody will believe you. And no one does except Frieda.
Becky s story awakens dark memories of an eerily similar incident in Frieda s own past that she s been avoiding for decades. When Becky is found hanging from a beam in her bedroom, Frieda returns home, seeking out her old high school friends to ask what they remember about the night that prompted Frieda to leave town for good. But confronting the ghosts of the past turns out to be more dangerous than she ever expected."
