The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman

5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

It was so good to be back with the Thursday Murder Club, like slipping on the comfiest pair of socks and snuggling down with no agenda. Perfect.

In The Man Who Died Twice, the seemingly fearless foursome are back with Elizabeth leading the way on a new adventure.

This book has it all, murder, mystery, love, spooks, diamonds, corrupt-in-a-good-way cops and Bogdan.

As well as being as cute as apple pie, the storyline is every bit as exciting as a James Bond film – yet with all the warmth of Midsummer Murders. It is an oh so clever story that will keep you guessing.

I loved every moment of this book, and that doesn’t surprise me as Richard Osman comes across as just the nicest most wholesome man on The House of Games. Him and Ghosts are my favourite comfort TV.

Looking forward to book 3 already – but I hope he finishes the series before their numbers start to diminish as I don’t think I’m ready for that!

Blurb: 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?
