If you like dark psychological mysteries you will like Blue Monday from husband and wife writing team Nicci French. You will meet Frieda Klein a complex, solitary London psychotherapist whose belief in the absolute confidentiality of her patients is tested when one of them shares dreams and thoughts that are disturbingly linked to the recent disappearance of a young boy. Similarities also exist between this child’s abduction and one of a girl twenty-two years ago. Klein ends up in an uneasy partnership with Detective Chief Inspector Malcolm Karlsson while she tries to cope with a immigrant builder, a mentor losing his edge, and a romantic interest who is moving. Plot twists abound, perhaps a little too much, but the characters are compelling. This is the first in a series, I’ll be interested in seeing what color Tuesday is.
