If Midsomer murders had a book style, this would be it ⭐️⭐️⭐️ A review by blogger and book reviewer, Hintonhitsthebooks. British TV celebrity Osman mixes mirth and murder in his exceptional debut, a series launch featuring the four members of the Thursday Murder Club, residents of the Coopers Chase Retirement Village in.

The first book, The Thursday Murder Club, introduces four eighty-year-old friends – Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron – who meet up in their retirement village once a week to investigate unsolved murders, only to find themselves on the hunt for a killer who’s struck much closer to home.

What follows is a clever, witty and heart-warming. Osman’s careful attention to the realities of life in a retirement village ensures that The Thursday Murder Club is a compassionate, thoughtful tribute to a segment of the population that’s often dismissed and ignored.

It’s also an excellent example of the ways in 4/4(10). The bodies pile up and the club must not only find the murder—or murderers but expose the many secrets of the lives they intersect with and often their own. The Thursday Murder Club is a fast, and at times, hilarious read. Osman has done an outstanding job of bringing his characters to life and making them as individual as if they were real.

The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman October 9, by jeverett15 5 Comments Richard Osman is omnipresent on British TV as a host of one quiz show and the co-host of another. He is also a frequent guest on comedy panel shows.

The Thursday Murder Club shifts from a 3rd person present tense narration, to a first person journal perspective by Joyce – one of the members of the Thursday Murder Club. 3rd person present is facing a resurgence in popularity, but it’s notoriously challenging to write well, and this novel demonstrates why.I have not read this book yet, but the synopsis sounds very, very similar to James Pattersons "Womens Murder Club" series or "The Sisterhood" series by Fern Michaels.

Both are phenomenal series' and i would recommend them both if you like books about serving justice to the criminal mind.

But is this book "The Thursday Murder Club" worth the read?
