The Thursday Murder Club – Richard Osman

The Thursday Murder Club – Richard Osman

This was languishing in my ‘to be read’ pile until a friend offered to lend me her copy. I finally dug it out and read it and I am glad I did, it’s lots of fun.

Blurb …

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders.

But when a brutal killing takes place on their very doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.

Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before it’s too late?

We don’t really know the person who gets brutally murdered and then the next person that gets murdered we don’t really like, so this is not a disturbing read at all. It’s well-written and fun, and I didn’t guess the murderer (which is unusual for me).
