Mon avis : This book is the follow-up of the adventures of Frida Klein, which succeeds to Blue Monday (that I have don’t yet read). But I think that the story could be read without to have read the first story – it’s like what I do, and I had understood the story.
One day, a psychotherapist discovers a man, naked and death, with one finger missing, in the room of her patient. An investigation is open to discover who is this man, why and how is death. The patient, Michelle Doyce, suffers of an mental disease and cannot give practicals answers to their questions. Frida Klein will going to work with the inspectors to resolve this mysterious case.
I confess that I took many times to read and finish this book, because it don’t attract me. The story was soooo long, there are so many details, the story miss structure and pace, and I was bored with these characters. In my opinion, the story was all over the place, the characters was too many, and that’s the reason why I was lost in this story, and my attention was faltered.
I’m disappointed with this book, but this don’t stop me to read another books in English in the future !
Ma note : 3/10
