This is the seventh book in the Frieda Klein series and this time the evil is brought much closer! The first decomposing body is found under Frieda's floorboards by Josef. The body is that of an ex=policeman she had hired to protect her. She eventually manages to persuade the Police that it is in fact Dean Reeves who is the killer (everyone the supposedly committed suicide 7 years ago), but this does not keep her friends and family safe... As her friends and colleagues become Reeve's victims, "FRIEDA KLEIN" can be found imprinted near the scene of the crime. This creates a clear link between the crime, killer and Frieda. He will not stop his killing spree until he his caught or she is killed. After 6 months the Police investigations are wound down so Frieda starts her own investigation with the help of a private investigator and DCI Karlsson (who she has worked with in the past). Will they run out of time or catch the killer?
Frieda is a complex character, the characters are described in detail and seem real and the reader cannot help but get drawn into her and her family's lives as the story progresses.
