In Tuesday’s Gone, a London social worker makes a routine home visit only to discover her client, Michelle Doyce, serving afternoon tea to a naked, decomposing corpse. With no clues as to the dead man’s identity, Chief Inspector Karlsson again calls upon Frieda for help. She discovers that the body belongs to Robert Poole, con man extraordinaire. But Frieda can’t shake the feeling that the past isn’t done with her yet. Did someone kill Poole to embroil her in the investigation? And if so, is Frieda herself the next victim?
I really enjoyed this! The set up for the mystery was a little peculiar, but that made the psychological portion of the thriller very intriguing. My attention never wavered, and I was very curious as to how it was going to get solved. I even liked the teeny tiny bit of romance and was actually hoping for more. Go figure! :)
I didn't care for one clue in particular. It didn't fit the character, so it didn't make sense. And, again, like in Blue Monday, I didn't care for the abrupt change in scenes. That may be an eGalley formatting issue, I don't know, but it annoyed me. There were also a lot of characters to remember, but they were manageable. Other than those minor issues, it was a very interesting mystery.
I strongly suggest reading Blue Monday first. There are major references to it throughout this book.
My thanks go to Penguin Group and NetGalley for sending me this eGalley.
