The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this!!!
The Thursday Murder Club is a bunch of retirees in a retirement community who get together once a week to talk cold cases. They are a mix of people who wouldn't have been friends before, when they were each working and living in different areas of the country. Geography and shared interests have created friendships.
Meanwhile: a new cop in town, a woman who just transferred to the area, and her first big case.
Oh, yes -- because there has been a murder. So now the Club have a case that isn't cold at all.
I LOVED this. There was humor, yes; but it was also so real. The Murder Club members are smart and likable, each with different skills to contribute. And there were so many twists and red herrings, and it kept me guessing and wondering and trying to decide who were unreliable narrators.
I would love to see this as TV series: Golden Girls meets Murder, She Wrote meets Broadchurch.
I can't wait for the second book!!
Yessss I got such a kick out of this too! My mom bought it at an indie bookstore that's recently opened in town, and loved it, and passed it on to me. An absolute dear of a book!
