The Thursday Murder Club [Book Review] #ThrowbackThursday #CozyMystery

Welcome to #ThrowBackThursday where I highlight an older review or post a current review of a backlist title. Today, I’m resharing a cozy mystery, The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman. This is the first in a series.

I’m linking up with Davida @ The Chocolate Lady’s Book Review Blog for #ThrowbackThursday.

My Summary:

In an upscale, peaceful retirement village, solving cold cases is favored over jigsaw puzzles… least for our four lively, interesting, energetic, and brilliant protagonists who meet every Thursday. Elizabeth (leader, organizer, and previous spy?), Joyce (retired nurse), Ibrahim (retired psychiatrist), and Ron (a retired union boss) call themselves The Thursday Murder Club and enjoy pouring over files and discussing unsolved crimes. One day, there is a real murder nearby which leads to another murder even closer to home. The club lends its expertise, opinions, and energy to two professional detectives, Donna and Chris. These six form an investigative team of sorts. Guess which group is the most innovative?

Is this cozy mystery on your TBR or have you read it?


  1. I absolutely LOVE this cozy mystery series. I’ve already bought “The Bullet That Missed”, the third book in this series. Can’t wait to read it!

  2. As I mentioned on your post, I’m not much into crime stories but Richard Osman could rewrite the phone book and I’d read it, he is just such a brilliant guy.

    Needless to mention now, I guess, that I read his book (read my review here) and that I have his next one on my TBR pile and will read it ASAP.
