Our intrepid quartet returns, using their skills to unravel mysteries – this time the arrival of an alleged dead man at their retirement village. They also have to contend with missing diamonds, an underworld bagman for international crime, some shadowy M15 types, an outbreak of local thuggery and double crossing galore. Effortlessly balancing action with humour, detection with warmth and humanity, this book had me chewing my fingernails with tension one minute and whooping with laughter the next. A brilliantly enjoyable read.

It's the following Thursday.
Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague, a man with whom she has a long history. He's made a big mistake, and he needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster, and a very real threat to his life.
As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds too? Well, wouldn't that be a bonus?
But this time they are up against an enemy who wouldn't bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can the Thursday Murder Club find the killer (and the diamonds) before the killer finds them?
