Synopsis: 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 pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it’s too late?
You never know what you’ll get when a celeb releases a book (or even if they’ve written it themselves) but this falls on the more pleasant end of the scale. There’s a diverse of characters in this quirky cosy crime story and all are completely fascinating. They try to solve the unsolved murders in history but when a local builder is found dead they find themselves investigating a real life case.
I’m less keen on cosy murder stories than gritty ones so it wasn’t completely to my tastes and there were one or two characters too many but otherwise it’s a fab debut and I’m interested to see what he does next
