"In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Murder Club. There's Red Ron, the infamous former socialist firebrand, still causing trouble; gentle Joyce, widowed, pining for another resident, but surely not as innocent as she seems; Ibrahim, a former therapist who understands the darker side of human nature; and Elizabeth? Well, no one is quite sure who she really is, but she's definitely not a woman to underestimate. When a local developer is found dead, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. The friends might be septuagenarians, but they are cleverer than most. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before its too late?

This book was incredibly fun! What a great read, such cute and quirky characters, all set in a charming and remote British location, with great wit and a nice mystery, to boot. Looking forward to the next book!

Brilliantly written and I loved dry humour. Highly recommend.

The Thursday Murder Club consists of four elderly mystery enthusiasts living in a retirement village. When a murder is committed on their doorstep they swing into action, led by the redoubtable Elizabeth. A delightful cosy mystery, filled with humour and a dash of pathos.

This lightweight whodunit romp of wicked humour and quirky septuagenarians in the English countrysides seems written with a TV series in mind. Judi Dench as Elizabeth and Bill Nighy as Red Ron anyone?

Loved it. Hilarious, a touch of mystery and very lovable characters. I really hope this writer gives us a second with the same characters.

So. Much. Fun. I went to bed early, let the dishes pile up and ignored everyone around me just to read this delightful story about a group of people in a retirement community who make the Thursday Murder Club whose purpose is to "investigate" cold cases. But when a murder takes place practically on their doorstep, the action really heats up. Loved the characters and didn't want the story to end.
