I just finished the third installment in the Thursday Murder Club series, called The Bullet That Missed. If you haven’t read anything in this series, and you enjoy British mystery novels, I highly recommend you check them out.
The first two, The Thursday Murder Club and The Man Who Died Twice were wonderfully narrated by Lesley Manville and that’s how I read them, as audiobooks.
The most recent novel, The Bullet That Missed, I read in the actual hardcover book format because it was available to borrow at my local public library. The members of the Thursday Murder Club: Joyce, Ron, Elizabeth, and Ibrahim continue to surprise and delight with their resourcefulness, ruthlessness, clear-eyed take on mortality, and ability to enjoy life and each other while solving crimes.
This mystery finds the four members working together to save lives and catch a potential murderer, with help from local cops, children and grandchildren. Their interactions with technology like Zoom and Instagram are hilarious. If you are in their age group or have older friends or relatives who are, you might nod your head.
The fourth in the series, called The Last Devil To Die comes out on September 19, 2023. And I look forward to reading it!
