The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman – Review

The Thursday Murder Club (Thursday Murder Club, #1)The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved The Thursday Murder Club! I found it highly amusing and packed with interesting quirky characters. I also loved the theme that being elderly doesn’t mean you’re daft! The humour and language is very British, though, so I’m not sure how well that would translate elsewhere.

Set in a retirement village, it features four residents who get together once a week on a Thursday to solve cold case murders. But when a murder takes place in their community, they leap at the chance of solving it before the police.

Filled with twists and turns, this book will appeal to readers of British cosy mysteries, and viewers of TV shows such as Midsomer Murders. The clues are all there, but it kept me guessing all the way through. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but will be reading more!
