Description

Douglas is the one broke into the house and stuffed the gills with diamonds but he made a mistake by taking off his ski mask in front of surveillance cameras.

The author amplifies the shenanigans of the characters in this book, and none of the multiple stories seem out of place. The second novel in the record-breaking, million-copy bestselling Thursday Murder Club series by Richard Osman.Each of these four are so different but they bring so many things to the table and honestly, they’re all so endearing. oh, and Joyce trying to figure out Instagram (I dare you not to laugh when you find out her username). I like how underneath all the comic capering Richard Osman isn’t afraid to touch on the type of problems associated with old age such as dementia (Stephen) and how easy it can be to lose one’s confidence following an unexpected turn of events (Ibrahim). It’s the following Thursday in Cooper’s Chase and the Thursday Murder Cub has gathered over lunch to discuss a new cold case that they are considering and to catch up with one another on the things that have kept them busy since they closed their last case. The man’s name who left the letter is Marcus Carmichael whose body slumped against a Thames Bridge at a low tide decades ago.

I felt I would have been just a little bit better served had I waited a little longer for things to settle in the stomach, if you will. It's all terribly amusing and Oscar Wilde-ish, lots of banter and disarming openness that conceals all sorts of shenanigans. A lot of people had mentioned to me that Joyce getting Instagram was a highlight of the book, and I have to agree. As the creative director of Endemol UK, Richard has worked as an executive producer on numerous shows including Deal Or No Deal and 8 Out of 10 Cats.With lots of laughs alongside all the drama, o thoroughly enjoyed my next visit to Coopers Chase and look forward to reading more. In The Man Who Died Twice you really get to know the characters that you enjoyed in the The Thursday Murder Club. I enjoyed digging into Elizabeth's fascinating old life in the secret service and how issues with people and drama from her past that seemed resolved showed up again when she least expected it.

In this one it was Elizabeth’s turn, as we learn a little more about her past and uncover just how good she probably was at her job and how good she continues to be, despite being retired now. The Thursday Murder Club - Elizabeth, Ron, Joyce and Ibrahim are embroiled in a new adventure when a person from Elizabeth’s past slips a note through her door asking to meet.When Elizabeth gets a message from a ghost from her past, the TMC finds themselves roped in to help protect her faithless but charming ex-husband and spook, Douglas, after he steals diamonds from middleman and money launderer to the international criminal community, Martin Lomax. As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. First off I have to comment on how wonderful it is to be reunited with all these familiar characters.

They all live in the Cooper’s Chase retirement community and have formed this special friendship where they value each other as close friends and part of their crime club. However, The Thursday Murder Club members may have taken on more than they can handle this time as the international spies, crime bosses and other criminals involved don't seem to have any issue in taking out OAPs if they get in their way. After really enjoying the first book in this series I borrowed the next two books from a family member who had actually recommended it to me.He further revealed that he had tried to focus on mortality in a "refreshing and possibly even calming" way. Ibrahim is a former psychiatrist with a unique and treasured ability to read people and their body language. He explains that his life is in danger, that an international crime broker says he stole diamonds from him that belong to the New York Mafia. I loved this one from start to finish, and adored the humorous and thoughtful author acknowledgements section. I enjoyed getting to know more about Elizabeth’s past and her ‘connections’ which was not so subtly hinted at in the first book.
