0120210125Richard Osman's best-selling debut novel, read by Olivier-nominated Haydn Gwynne (Billy Elliot the Musical, Drop the Dead Donkey). Abridged by Sara Davies.

In a peaceful retirement village in Kent, four residents meet up once a week to investigate unsolved murders. Highly accomplished in their pre-retirement professions (psychiatrist, nurse, political firebrand and - probably - international spy) they are eminently qualified for the job.

But when a brutal killing takes place on their doorstep, the Thursday Murder Club find themselves in the middle of their first live case.

Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing eighty but they still run rings round the local police. Drug gangs, high finance and lemon drizzle all loom large in this compelling, funny and endearing crime thriller.

The members of The Thursday Murder Club are residents at Coopers Chase, a luxury retirement village in the Kentish Weald. They persuade local policewoman PC Donna De Freitas to join them when she visits the village to give a talk on safety for the elderly. She soon realises the cosy talk she has planned isn't going to cut it with this rather feisty and wily group of seniors. But they do need her help.

Built on the grounds of a former rectory, Coopers Chase is about to be developed by its owner, the wealthy Ian Ventham, but before he goes ahead he must sack his long-term partner, the builder Tony Curran. Ventham is a bit worried that Tony Curran might not take the news well. Might, in fact, kill him.
