Mystery Readers Book Club

Mystery Readers Book Club

Please join other lovers of mystery books at the Babcock Library for a friendly, lively discussion.

The first of what is planned to be many meeting of the Book Club will discuss the following book:

Thursday Night Murder Club

Author: Richard Osman


Here is the summary:

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together they call themselves The Thursday Murder Club. There’s Red Ron, the infamous former socialist firebrand, still causing trouble; gentle Joyce, widowed, pining for another resident, but surely not as innocent as she seems; Ibrahim, a former therapist who understands the darker side of human nature; and Elizabeth? Well, no one is quite sure who she really is, but she’s definitely not a woman to underestimate. When a local developer is found dead, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case. The friends might be septuagenarians, but they are cleverer than most. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before its too late?

This book is available in a variety of formats including large print and playaway.

Thursday Night Murder Club is the first in a series of now three books! A fourth book is expected to be released in August!

The event is finished.
