ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- For those of you who read and enjoyed The Thursday Murder Club rest assured this second outing for the Coopers Chase mob is every bit as fun and frolicking as the first! Elizabeth receives a mysterious invitation from someone she knows is not only dead, but who didn't actually exist. He's just moved into the retirement village, so of course, she accepts, only to find it is an unwelcome reminder of her past - perhaps the only mistake she ever really made - and he wants her help. Twenty million pounds worth of diamonds are missing from a money launderer's place, and he's been accused of theft and placed at Coopers Chase for his own protection. But MI5 and MI6 and the mafia are involved, and so too, the Thursday Murder Club. There are other things happening: Ibrahim gets mugged, Bogdan keeps losing at chess to Stephen, and Joyce wonders if she should get a dog. Oh, and Donna's mum and her colleague Chris are romantically involved, the local drug dealer is making a killing, and the money launderer needs to bake muffins for his Open Garden day... Absolutely delightful, full of warmth and humour and lovely characterisation, with mayhem, mystery and murder liberally sprinkled throughout.  Lindy

The second novel in the number one Sunday Times bestselling Thursday Murder Club series featuring the old (but far from past-it) team as they pursue a brand new mystery.

It's the following Thursday, and Elizabeth has just had a visit from a man she thought was dead. It's (one of) her ex-husbands, and he's being hunted. His story involves some diamonds, some spies, and a very angry mobster.

Elizabeth puts it down to his normal grandstanding, but then the bodies start piling up. So she enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for the killer. If they find the diamonds - well, that's just a bonus...

But this time the murderer isn't some small-time criminal, and it soon becomes terrifying clear that they wouldn't bat an eyelid at killing four septuagenarians. Can our team find the killer before the killer finds them?
