The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman

Delightfully Amusing

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman is a delightfully amusing contemporary novel set in a retirement village.

The lead characters are four octogenarians who meet on Thursdays to discuss cold cases. Their raison d’etre is heightened when murders – old and new – land in their vicinity. They reckon the police could do with a helping hand!

I loved the banter and the friendship. This is not a gruesome read, more like an afternoon drama. I found it reminiscent of Miss Marple and Midsomer Murders.

Richard Osman has a charming style of writing, with his dry wit and many observations of human nature.

I found the whole novel very engaging and entertaining. I am looking forward to book two now.
