"The third Thursday Murder Club Mystery is just as fabulously readable as the first two, and comes as highly recommended by our team."
So, so beautifully easy to read, and it sits as a perfect murder mystery to attempt to solve from the comfort of your armchair. I have to say that: “Not now Alan.”, is perhaps my new favourite phrase. Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim, and Ron are joined by new friends and foes as they research a cold case without a dead body. I know that some people have questioned the validity of celebrity authors. Quite simply, Richard Osman really can write, rather beautifully actually, readers wouldn’t be recommending his books so widely if he couldn’t. He has the fabulous ability to be able to mix murder and mayhem with friendship and laughter, not easy! I fell in love with his four septuagenarians from the very first book The Thursday Murder Club. I have no doubt that this, the third, will be just as popular as the first two. I think it’s going to be one of those series where each new book becomes my favourite until the next appears. Richard Osman has a wonderfully witty pen, he is also quite happy to poke fun at himself, and I smirked as Waitrose in Tunbridge Wells made another appearance. I had absolutely no clue as to how this case was going to be solved, and I love it when that happens. So, not only do I recommend The Bullet That Missed as a Liz Pick of the Month, it’s also a LoveReading Star Book too. It’s a smart, witty, and joyous murder mystery that shouldn’t be missed.
