Description

The man’s name who left the letter is Marcus Carmichael whose body slumped against a Thames Bridge at a low tide decades ago. Chris and Donna are carrying out surveillance on local drug and crime queen pin, Connie Johnson, but she is running rings around them, leading to them being helped by more 'experienced' London detectives. I could only marvel at the ingenious ways in which they disentangle themselves from sticky situations, somehow never the worse for wear! I find Joyce's voice to be particularly delightful and her colorful commentary of the events a real hoot and highlight. This series has much more depth than is perhaps suggested from the synopsis and has occasionally found itself labeled as a cozy- (I think I even categorized the first book as such) Though this book does meet the ‘cozy’ criteria of ‘no graphic violence’, the mystery and the dialogue are whip smart, with an equal balance of intelligence to match the humor and the occasionally seriousness.

The Man Who Died Twice is the second book of the series and dare I say, I enjoyed it even more than the first, which I loved. Add in twenty million quids worth of stolen diamonds and it’s game on for our intrepid group of septuagenarians and their loyal pals. The twinkle that could make you walk down the aisle with a man almost ten years your junior, and regret it within months. Following the publication of The Thursday Murder Club, Osman said that he had decided to continue writing due to its success outside the United Kingdom, [1] saying, "I was very worried about that thing, 'Oh it's a celebrity writing a novel', which, of course, is one of the worst phrases in the English language. Donna is struggling a bit with her place in life and Chris's new relationship with Donna's mother, Patrice.The Man Who Died Twice was followed by The Bullet That Missed, the third book in the Thursday Murder Club series. Light and easy reads, you love the characters straight away and a bit of murder thrown in, who wants more?

I fell in love with the characters, the retirement community setting and the compelling mystery that played out. Joyce is there of course, making her diary comments, keeping an eye on Elizabeth's wellbeing, and selling badly knitted friendship bracelets for charity. They’re coming from different backgrounds, sharing different pasts, regrets but their loyal friendship and their curiosity to solve the crimes give them enough hope to wake up and welcome another day of their lives! Its an utter joy to be re-acquainted with the slew of characters I encountered previously, the TMC obviously, but including the likes of Chris who is now in a relationship with Donna's mum, Patrice, and the Polish Bogdan, an ever reliable man who will do anything to help the TMC and who is developing feelings for Donna.Joyce and Elizabeth steal the show in this one and interact to give a mix of empathy and resourcefulness in their investigation while unquestionably loyal to each other.
