'While living in a swish retirement village in the English countryside is peaceful, it can also be deathly dull – until the sprightly members of the Thursday Murder Club add a little spice by reinvestigating old, unsolved murder cases. When a shady developer is killed, they seize the chance to put their sleuthing skills into practice...For a book to work as both hilariously funny and a proper ‘whodunnit’ is difficult, but this one does it with style and panache – an absolute joy!'

Recommended by Karina Clifford, Dubray Liffey Valley

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

But when a local property developer shows up dead, 'The Thursday Murder Club' find themselves in the middle of their first live case.

The four friends, Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, might be octogenarians, but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late?

Lives up to the Hype!
I loved this - the mystery is satisfying, the characters are engaging, the humour is well-placed and well-balanced. My favourite aspect of the novel was the real warmth and accuracy with which Osman writes his cast of mostly-elderly characters.
