Thursday's Children by Nicci French

London psychotherapist Frieda Klein finds herself thrown into her past when childhood acquaintance, Maddie, asks her to talk to Maddie's fifteen-year-old daughter, Becky, who's not been acting like herself lately. Becky confesses to Frieda that she was raped in her bedroom and as Becky relates the details of the incident, Frieda realizes that Becky's assailant is the same person who raped her when she was young. Stunned that the criminal has been around Braxton all these years and probably committed more crimes, Frieda goes back to the hometown that she hasn't visited in over twenty years to try and get the authorities to look into the cases, but gets nowhere. Soon, Frieda has to face the past and the people she ran away from all those years ago, even as she hunts down a killer. In this fourth mystery featuring Frieda Klein, the author duo gives the reader an engaging tale that's hard to put down.
