I’d run out of audiobooks. Over 300 and most have been listened to at least twice – sometimes six times (ahem Bram Stoker!!)

So I wandered around itunes to find something NEW and refreshing.

I like Richard Osman. He was brilliant in the show Pointless. And he is tall. TALL!

But not as tall as I thought. 6ft 7ins? My boy is 6ft 6ins. But that’s beside any point aka pointless :o)

From Am a zon :

The first book in the number one best-selling, multi-million copy selling series by TV presenter Richard Osman.

Read by Lesley Manville, soon-to-be star of The Crown, and featuring an exclusive Q&A between Richard Osman and Marian Keyes.

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved killings.

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

Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, might be pushing 80, but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves.

Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before it’s too late?

CrimeFest Audible Sounds of Crime winner: Best Audiobook 2021.


I bought, downloaded and went to bed with Richard.

OK. I may need to start the entire book again because I became very confused, very quickly. Elizabeth and Joyce and Ibrahim and Ron and a boxer and a developer and a man called Bogdan and a young policewoman who wants to solve murders and a swimming pool and a convent and a priest and the Nun’s graveyard and a psychiatrist and a Detective Inspector who wants to go on a diet but keeps eating McDonalds and crisps and chocolate and needs a woman in his life and…….. Boggled was I.

I ended up falling asleep and having a dream where I’m digging up my own bones from the Nun’s graveyard.

Bizarre as effffff!
