📖PLOT SUMMARY FROM GOODREADS 📖
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 local news legend is on the hunt for a sensational headline, and soon the gang are hot on the trail of two murders, ten years apart.
To make matters worse, a new nemesis pays Elizabeth a visit, presenting her with a deadly mission: kill or be killed…
While Elizabeth grapples with her conscience (and a gun), the gang and their unlikely new friends (including TV stars, money launderers and ex-KGB colonels) unravel a new mystery. But can they catch the culprit and save Elizabeth before the murderer strikes again?
I was very excited to make a start on this one. I loved the previous two books in the series and pre-ordered this one before it was even finished (I then received it as a Christmas present hence the slight reading delay). I was not disappointed. Whilst it wasn’t quite as good as the other two books, I still really enjoyed it and will be pre-ordering the next one!
The writing was light and entertaining. There were a couple of times where I had to concentrate and think about what was being said, but I got there in the end! Like the other books, I was kept guessing until the end. Everything was eventually explained and I think that I successfully followed it. In terms of the physical format of the book (I have the signed hardback edition) I liked the size and spacing of the font. It added to the ease of reading.
The chapters varied in length starting with fairly long chapters and ending with lots of shorter ones which tied all the little bits of the story together and gave a good flow to the book.
As with the other books, I loved the occasional ‘Joyce’ chapter. It made you as the reader feel more involved and made the characters overall feel more real.
The characters were excellent. I have really enjoyed following this group of friends on their adventures. I like the way that Joyce ‘talks’ to you every so often and I like how real the characters feel. Even though their adventures seem far fetched the way that it is written makes it entirely possible for this sort of thing to occur. Joyce is definitely one of my favourite characters ever!
Lastly the settings. I love reading about places near me. It makes the story as a whole feel more familiar and easier to connect to.
Overall another excellent book and I can’t wait to read the next one!
