“Don’t trust anyone, including the four septuagenarian sleuths in Osman’s own laugh-out-loud whodunit.” —Parade

Four septuagenarians with a few tricks up their sleeves
A female cop with her first big case
A brutal murder
Welcome to...

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.

When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case.

As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late?

“Witty, endearing and greatly entertaining.” —Wall Street Journal

  • Wish I didn’t buy this.

    The writing style and grammar is very poor. Osman takes forever to get to the point with no substantial development. The book incredibly long-winded and incoherent at certain points. I lost interest after 40-50 pages because it went nowhere fast.

    Second book that I had checked out and will read it for the first time because I love mystery books and the first book I read was bells spells and murder.
  • Fun and silly with good twists

    By Ed in Co
    This had great characters and realistic ridiculousness. I liked several plot twists which I normally see coming but not here. Pleasurable escape.
  • Great read

    I enjoyed this book
  • Decent

    By brock_zahler
    This was a decent book! I think I was too excited to read it if that makes sense. I’d heard great things, but for whatever reason this one just didn’t completely pull me in. The story was novel, and the characters and premise were cool, but I just didn’t get excited to pick it up. I almost feel like there were too many characters and storylines happening at once?
  • Rich characters you wish you knew

    I hated the writing and the story development. Too many characters, too many details about inconsequential things that was too distracting. The conversations just prattled on and on, making it annoying.
