The Man Who Died Twice
It’s the following Thursday.
Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague, a man with whom she has a long history. He’s made a big mistake, and he needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster, and a very real threat to his life.
As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds too? Well, wouldn’t that be a bonus?
But this time they are up against an enemy who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can the Thursday Murder Club find the killer (and the diamonds) before the killer finds them?
After reading The Thursday Murder Club I was excited to see what happens next to Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim.
Having already got to know the main characters, it was interesting to find out even more about The Thursday Murder Club and their next adventure. I loved the subtle humour which anyone with an elderly relative will easily recognise. The characters speak without thinking, are honest, wise and funny without meaning to be. Their senior years means that people are trusting and loose lipped…just what an amateur sleuth needs!
With characters who are likeable and tightly knit ,it is easy to get drawn into the mystery/crime element which is fast paced, well written and hugely entertaining.
I hope there is more to this series, a highly recommended read.
Thank you to the publisher (via NetGalley) for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
