“The Man Who Died Twice”
This book was given to me in a book exchange with my local “Sisters in Crime” group. What a wonderful read. I loved this book and its characters, Elizabeth, Joyce, Ron, and Ibrahim.
What happens when four septuagenarians who live in the Cooper’s Chase retirement community band together and form a crime club (aka The Thursday Murder Club)? A heartwarming friendship, and a book filled with laugh-out-loud humor.
“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.”
The narrative is split between all the characters mentioned above, but Joyce and Elizabeth play the largest roles.
With diamonds, Elizabeth’s ex-husband, the MI5, a cocaine dealer, crooked businessman, the mafia, local thugs, and piling up bodies, the members of the Thursday Murder Club have their hands full.
This is the second book in this series. The first is called “The Thursday Murder Club Mystery.”
Richard Osman has created a wonderful story line and I am anxiously awaiting the next novel with these characters.
