Blurb; Four septuagenarians with a few tricks up their sleeves
A female cop with her first big case
A brutal murder
The Thursday Murder Club
In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Murder Club. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.
When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it’s too late?
My Review; Now You must have seen this book everywhere. I sure have. It seems to me its a marmite book you either love it or don’t get the hype. For me I am firmly on the love side. I loved it all. It’s set in a little retirement village with OAPs and they came up with the idea to start a club to solve/fix old cases that were left unresolved. Meet the Thursday Murder Club.
Things soon enter from the present though with a murder right on their own doorstep, they all witnessed and they’re determined to solve it before the police do. Now don’t under-estimate these OAPs they’re clever and know the right people. Especially Elizabeth she seems the leader to me. However, soon things become far more complicated than they first seemed dragging them back into the past to discover the answers.
A very clever story, kept me guessing. A great outcome I never saw coming. These clever OAPs stole my heart. I cannot wait to see what lies ahead in book two. Highly recommend! A well deserved five stars from me.
