Four septuagenarians with a few tricks up their sleeves
A female cop with her first big case
A brutal homicide
The Thursday Homicide Club
In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Homicide Club. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.
When a native developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Homicide Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it’s too late?
I finished The Thursday Homicide Club yesterday and it was a book I had seen so much hype for and I bought it because I saw Richard Osman talking about it on TV I was so excited when it arrived but I was quite disappointed, as some of you may have seen on my story I very nearly didn’t finish it. I’m glad I did keep reading it but I would say the first half of the book could have been cut down a lot. At times I found it confusing and boring. The further in I got I started to enjoy it more as the story picked up.
I didn’t love this book but I did end up enjoying it. Whether you’re like me and thinking of giving up before the end, I would suggest trying to stick it out as the ending is worth it! No spoilers of course 🙈
