The Thursday Murder Club: Signed Exclusive Edition (Hardback)Richard Osman (author)
- Coming soon
The debut novel from the telly puzzle favourite is a typically clever and drily funny affair centred on a group of octogenarian sleuths investigating the suspicious demise of a property developer. Laced with killer one-liners as well as artfully constructed twists and red herrings, The Thursday Murder Club is tremendous fun for all lovers of a classic whodunit.
Signed exclusive edition with black sprayed edges and additional content
I was at lunch, this is two or three months ago, and it must have been a Monday, because it was shepherd’s pie. Elizabeth said she could see that I was eating, but wanted to ask me a question about knife wounds, if it wasn’t inconvenient?
I said, ‘Not at all, of course, please,’ or words to that effect. I won’t always remember everything exactly, I might as well tell you that now. So she opened a manila folder, and I saw some typed sheets and the edges of what looked like old photographs. Then she was straight into it.
Elizabeth asked me to imagine that a girl had been stabbed with a knife. I asked what sort of knife she had been stabbed with, and Elizabeth said probably just a normal kitchen knife. John Lewis. She didn’t say that, but that was what I pictured.
Pre-order now: the first book in the gripping Thursday Murder Club Series by TV presenter Richard Osman.
In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved killings.
But when a local property developer shows up dead, 'The Thursday Murder Club' find themselves in the middle of their first live case.
The four friends, Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, might be octogenarians, but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late?
