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?

  • Why aren’t there more books about old people??

    Starsky & Hutch + Cagney & Lacey + The Golden Girls Coopers Chase is a dream retirement community. There’s Zumba, sprawling estates, and the best durn parking commission in the country! Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim, and Ron live for Thursdays. The Jigsaw Room is free to try their hand at unsolved murders..well, when a murder takes place, they feel they can show the police a thing or two... I absolutely ADORED this! Golden Girls is my favorite show of all time. As a reader, I always wonder why there aren’t more books about old people. I would seriously read the heck out of a book about a granny (or grandpa, or even better, an older person that never had kids) falling down a hole or fighting crimes with knitting needles as their weapon and a multitude of cats at their side. I tend to stick to the 80s and 90s when it comes to entertainment, plus I’m from the States, so I’m sad to say I was not already familiar with Mr. Osman. But you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be following this series and anything else he writes from now on! Buy this book for yourself or anyone who loves a good mystery. If you’re twisted, get it for someone who doesn’t believe the elderly are capable of FANTABULOUS things!!
