Publishing Deal - Nicci French

Nicci French is to write an eight book series according to The Bookseller:
Michael Joseph will release the eight books in the series over the next ten years, with the first seven each named after a day of the week. The final title will bring the whole series together.

Psychotherapist Frieda Klein will be introduced as the series heroine in the first title, Blue Monday. It is set in London, with the plot centering around the abduction of a five-year-old on Monday, "the lowest point in the week." One of Klein's patients has an unexpected link to the case, and she is quickly at the centre of the search for the kidnapper.

Blue Monday will be published as a hardback on 23rd June 2011.

Sounds great! I like Nicci French and I love "psychotherapy" fiction so sounds like an excellent combination to me. They have not written a series before (I think) so this may be their way to break into even bigger bestsellerdom than now.
