Ruth Lennox, housewife and mother of three, is found dead in a pool of her own blood. Detective Chief Inspector Karlsson can't piece together a motive and calls in Frieda, hoping her talents will offer a new angle on the case. When it emerges that the mother was hiding a scandalous secret, her family closes ranks. Frieda herself is distracted, still reeling from an attempt on her life, and struggling with her own rare feelings of vulnerability. Then a patient's chance remark sends Frieda down a dangerous path that seems to lead to a serial killer who's long escaped detection. Is Frieda getting closer to unraveling either case? Or is she just the victim of her own paranoid, fragile mind? Because, as Frieda knows, every step closer to a killer is one more step into a darkness from which there may be no return . . .Flawlessly executed, Waiting for Wednesday is a penetrating, twisted novel of murder and neurosis with a jaw-dropping climax that will linger in readers, minds long after they have turned the last page.

Still recovering from events at the end of Tuesday's Gone, Frieda Klein is at lose ends. Sometimes Frieda can seem kind of cold but there is so much going on inside her. At first, when a seemingly "normal" wife and mother is murdered, it doesn't seem like there's an "in" for Frieda to get involved. No worries, she does get involved and almost too involved. She's a little relentless. Some of her investigation is almost cringe-worthy and Frieda pays the price for her obsession. Also, the shadow of Dean Reeve is still looming. I'm dreading the showdown to come.

The best part is the final 3 chapters...Far too many characters to keep track of. Still pretty good but not as good as the first for sure.

With each new book in the series the quality is more poorer. The very first - Blue Monday - was the best, up to this point. In this third part there are too many names, characters for which there is no need. Very much felt that the book was written by two authors - the difference in style. It seems that to be continued ...

In the Klein series there seem to be many people who agree to delve into sleuthing without regard to their normal incomes, work, safety and privacy issues, whilst the police budget and staffing are being hobbled. Frieda doesn't really offer that much that your average Bobby would not have seen from the start, and as usual people die through her errors - it would be so nice if the authors could work out how to add more crime without Frieda being the cause. Irritating Frieda habits continue to make me marvel that she is considered a genius instead of a misfit. Sigh.

A riveting read for a weekend. Complex fascinating characters and a storyline that shows you just never know what's going on in "happy families".
