I enjoyed getting to know more about Elizabeth’s past and her ‘connections’ which was not so subtly hinted at in the first book.

I love Richard Osman’s wry and clever sense of humour which I’m glad to say crops up with frequency. Richard Osman is a British television producer, presenter, comedian and the author of the phenomenally popular The Thursday Murder Club. This story opens with our favourite psychiatrist, Ibrahim, being knocked down by a cyclist who grabs his phone and makes off with it. Are you ready for round two of the comic crime capers that come courtesy of Coopers Chase retirement village’s most celebrated residents?This time the club members have seriously dangerous criminals they are dealing with, they will do anything to get back their diamonds. My favorite septuagenarians are back in this sequel to The Thursday Murder Club, which is just as entertaining and loveable. After really enjoying the first book in this series I borrowed the next two books from a family member who had actually recommended it to me.

Just because they are in the upper age profile nobody messes with them and gets away with it, they take no prisoners, they are full of vim, vigour, brains and a barrel load of flair and ingenuity. I enjoyed digging into Elizabeth's fascinating old life in the secret service and how issues with people and drama from her past that seemed resolved showed up again when she least expected it.Having established his characters, Osman raises the stakes and the danger levels for his members of the TMC, and, needless to say, they rise to the challenge beautifully. Or when my kids get all upset and ask me why I sent them the sarcastic smiley face emoji when all I was trying to do was send a smiley face because forfuckssake how can you tell the difference between smiley face emojis they all look the same! This is the second outing of the Thursday Murder Club, a group of septuagenarians who look into cold murder cases for fun. For the life of him he can’t remember where they are buried, but he knows they are in a safe location, and he has written it down somewhere.

If the man hasn’t been resuscitated , somebody who knows the operation might be the one who wrote that letter! It sits beneath the surface most of the time, but is very effective when it floats to the top, as a sobering reminder of the limitations and personal background stories of our favorite characters. I am learning that it is important to stop sometimes, and just have a drink and a gossip with your friends, even as corpses start to pile up around you. It's such a great performance, I plan to listen to the audiobook when the next book in this series is published! Joyce is there of course, making her diary comments, keeping an eye on Elizabeth's wellbeing, and selling badly knitted friendship bracelets for charity.Elizabeth, Joyce and their friendship were again the stars of the show for me, although I do really love everyone. Leslie Manville does a lovely job as a narrator even though she is incapable of doing a realistic man’s voice.
