It is an ordinary Thursday, and things should finally be returning to normal. Except trouble is never far away where the Thursday Murder Club are concerned. A decade-old cold case--their favorite kind--leads them to a local news legend and a murder with no body and no answers. Then a new foe pays Elizabeth a visit. Her mission? Kill or be killed. Suddenly the cold case has become red hot. While Elizabeth wrestles with her conscience (and a gun), Joyce, Ron, and Ibrahim chase down the clues with help from old friends and new. But can the gang solve the mystery and save Elizabeth before the murderer strikes again?

British TV personality Osman has hit the bullseye with his best-selling Thursday Murder Club series, which is set in an upscale English retirement community. The four septuagenarian members of the clubâformer MI6 agent Elizabeth, chatty Joyce, psychiatrist Ibrahim, and everyman Ronâtry to defrost cold cases that have confounded police. Their third adventure, which centers on the long-ago disappearance of a television journalist who was investigating a money-laundering scheme, comes with a bit of glamour and some well-known media personalities, who impact the investigation. But old dangers also resurface, as Viktor, Elizabeth's onetime KGB adversary who still dabbles in money laundering, becomes a suspect, and a new kid on the crime block, known only as the Viking, attempts to blackmail Elizabeth into shooting Viktor to get the Russian off his turf. Osman writes with a very light touch. There's almost a madcap feel to the action at times, yet he doesn't shy away from issues affecting the elderly: diminishing mental and physical capabilities, loss of image, and the feeling of time running out. Plenty of layers, but plenty of laughs, too. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
