Publisher's summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The second novel in the record-breaking, million-copy best-selling Thursday Murder Club series by Richard Osman.

Narrated by Lesley Manville, soon-to-be star of The Crown, and featuring an exclusive interview between Richard Osman and Lesley Manville.

The second novel in the record-breaking, million-copy best-selling Thursday Murder Club series by Richard Osman.

It's the following Thursday.

Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague, a man with whom she has a long history. He's made a big mistake, and he needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster and a very real threat to his life.

As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds, too? Well, wouldn't that be a bonus?

But this time, they are up against an enemy who wouldn't bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can the Thursday Murder Club find the killer (and the diamonds) before the killer finds them?

Enid Blyton for adults

I love a good mystery, especially when solved by a charming group of characters I can really invest in. Beautifully written, masterfully narrated, completely entertaining and I can't wait for the next one!

"That's what mates do."

Ibrahim decides to throw caution to the wind and start living life to the full; so after a very pleasant three hour visit to a book shop, returning to his car he is struck down and kicked by an hooded youth on a bicycle stealing his mobile phone. His friends from the Thursday Murder Club, Ron, Joyce and Elizabeth, together with Chris and Donna from the local police, are determined to see justice done. An ex husband of Elizabeth is also in trouble and asks for her help and Joyce decides she wants a dog. It's going to be an exciting few days for the four not-so-young friends.

Endearing, exciting and totally foolish, leaving a few dead bodies along the way, this is a fun, entangled mystery amusingly written by Richard Osman and beautifully read by Lesley Manville (once the playback speed is increased to 1.3). A bonus interview between author and narrator follows the story.
Recommended to anyone looking for a gently light hearted crime story.

Wow! You simply HAVE to listen!

Not exactly a sequel to ‘Thursday Murder Club’ but more a continuation of characters. The writing is absolutely sublime, and when you combine this with Lesley Manville’s narration you have perfection. Richard Osman writes for his characters with true depth of feeling so that they really have gravitas within the story threads. Lesley Manville gives life to them with her voice, and her expression of the characters fits hand in glove with the author. This is a pairing made in Audiobook heaven!!!
The plot line has many twists and turns and I love the unexpected and clandestine antics of a group of lovable pensioners. Bring on the next book please!!!!!!

A lot of fun

It is very hard to anticipate how the story will evolve and that leads to a lot of surprises and cliffhangers at the end of the chapters.

All Round Fabulous

I simply adored this book. The quirky, very human characters were totally 3 dimensional and hugely believable, and most of all, so much fun! The narration is unparalleled.
I wish I could rate it higher.

Love the characters and love, love, love Joyce!!!

So good. I’ve listened to the first 2 books and just want to listen to the rest right away. The characters are brilliant, every single one of them, but Joyce is just a riot.
