Publisher's Summary

An instant New York Times bestseller!

The second gripping novel in the New York Times bestselling Thursday Murder Club series, soon to be a major motion picture from Steven Spielberg at Amblin Entertainment

“It’s taken a mere two books for Richard Osman to vault into the upper leagues of crime writers. . . The Man Who Died Twice. . . dives right into joyous fun."
—The New York Times Book Review

The Bullet That Missed, the third installment in the Thursday Murder Club series, is forthcoming!

Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim—the Thursday Murder Club—are still riding high off their recent real-life murder case and are looking forward to a bit of peace and quiet at Cooper’s Chase, their posh retirement village.

But they are out of luck.

An unexpected visitor—an old pal of Elizabeth’s (or perhaps more than just a pal?)—arrives, desperate for her help. He has been accused of stealing diamonds worth millions from the wrong men and he’s seriously on the lam.

Then, as night follows day, the first body is found. But not the last. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim are up against a ruthless murderer who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can our four friends catch the killer before the killer catches them? And if they find the diamonds, too? Well, wouldn’t that be a bonus? You should never put anything beyond the Thursday Murder Club.

Richard Osman is back with everyone’s favorite mystery-solving quartet, and the second installment of the Thursday Murder Club series is just as clever and warm as the first—an unputdownable, laugh-out-loud pleasure of a read.

What the critics say

“These septuagenarian sleuths of the Thursday Murder Club don’t miss a beat…”
—People

“It’s taken a mere two books for Richard Osman to vault into the upper leagues of crime writers… The Man Who Died Twice. . . dives right into joyous fun. Osman’s writing reminds me of Anthony Berkeley’s in its mixing of sparkling humor and resonant emotion. . . No wonder readers, myself included, have surrendered to [the Thursday Murder Club members’] abundant charms.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Think of the Thursday Murder Club itself as a senior version of 'The A-Team'. . . Funny, moving and suspenseful. . . So delicious, even adorable . . A wildly entertaining book.” —The Washington Post

Thursday Murder Club Forever!

After only two books in this series I already feel like Joyce, Ibrahim, Ron, Elizabeth, Chris, Donna and Bogdan are dear old friends of mine. I absolutely love the adventures they drag me into. How can such relatable, adorable and funny people be so completely epic at handling these outlandish and often unsettling circumstances? The realness of all the characters combined with the complexity of the story makes it a read I will enjoy again and again.

Just as good as the first

I loved the Thursday Murder Club, and the second novel did not disappoint. The narrator is amazing, and really brings the story to life

Must read for anyone over 60

I am hooked! I listened to both books about the Thursday Murder club. The author highlights a group of 70 year olds in a retirement village. Brilliant plot and dialogues. Full of fun and philosophy about getting old. The narrator is extremely good as well.

Even better than the first TMC

It was such a treat to meet Elizabeth, Ibrahim, Ron, and especially Joyce again in this clever, nuanced, gripping story. The subtle humour, the depth of understanding of how older people function - without a hint of ageism - and the unexpected quirks of the characters make it addictive. Lesley Manville is a brilliant narrator, like a one-woman band. Keep turning them out, Richard! Can’t wait for the next one.

Delightful

Narration is spot on.
The story is fun, exciting, and then every now and then hilarious as the characters’ quirky personalities come though.

Lesley Manville is brilliant at bringing the characters to life!

I really enjoy Richard Osman’s sense of humour and his characters. They truly become believable people under Lesley Manville’s telling of their stories. My only minor criticism would be I found this book a bit convoluted and lost me towards the end. But overall I loved it and look forward to Book 3!!!

Full of Twists and Turns

Truly a modern day mystery that is such a delight when pulled off by the most adoring four Cooper Chase detectives. Looking forward to the third now…..
