I have to say, I enjoyed this book more than I did the first one, maybe because I was now used to Osman's style of writing and more familiar with the characters. When Elizabeth’s ex-husband, who is still an MI5 operative, approaches her about money-laundering and a diamond theft, the Club becomes embroiled in a complex and deadly, but highly entertaining, adventure. PC Donna de Freitas and DCI Chris Hudson along with their friend Bogdan all come to aid the investigations in their own capacities.

The Thursday Murder Club was established by four fascinating characters, all seniors, but determined to use their career skills and experience to help solve murder cases. Elizabeth is a former secret agent with MI5, with crucial know-how, instinct, and access to police and British intelligence resources. As for characters it’s pointless trying to pick a favourite when the author spoils you for choice but I’m going to anyway! A lot of people had mentioned to me that Joyce getting Instagram was a highlight of the book, and I have to agree. This has the same charm and appeal of the first one and I feel like with each book, we’re going to peel back another layer for some of these characters.Elizabeth, Joyce and their friendship were again the stars of the show for me, although I do really love everyone. There wasn’t enough setting around the Coopers Chase retirement home and the Thursday Murder Club gathering like there was in book 1. well it’s a rare sight to see but richard is the only author who has been able to make it happen twice for me. The Man Who Died Twice was followed by The Bullet That Missed, the third book in the Thursday Murder Club series. Bogdan (whose name I heard as BobDan for the entirety of the 1st book), Donna, Chris, Patrice, and everyone else that they add to their little murder club as the books go by are all so real to me.

Its an utter joy to be re-acquainted with the slew of characters I encountered previously, the TMC obviously, but including the likes of Chris who is now in a relationship with Donna's mum, Patrice, and the Polish Bogdan, an ever reliable man who will do anything to help the TMC and who is developing feelings for Donna. Add in twenty million quids worth of stolen diamonds and it’s game on for our intrepid group of septuagenarians and their loyal pals.Light and easy reads, you love the characters straight away and a bit of murder thrown in, who wants more? Richard Osman is a popular TV personality in the UK, and has now released the second book in what is becoming a best-selling series.

Bogdan, a Polish man of many useful talents, helps around Cooper's Chase and in this one, is particularly helpful to Elizabeth. I enjoyed getting to know more about Elizabeth’s past and her ‘connections’ which was not so subtly hinted at in the first book.I would love this book even without audio, but having listened to her narrate both books so far, I can’t imagine it without her now. It’s fair to say I don’t think I could ever tire of these characters who for all their lighthearted silly banter are superb friends to one another. I’ve missed their camaraderie, their hilarious conversations, their individual foibles and their ability to behave badly without arousing suspicion.

I loved this one from start to finish, and adored the humorous and thoughtful author acknowledgements section. The Thursday Murder Club - Elizabeth, Ron, Joyce and Ibrahim are embroiled in a new adventure when a person from Elizabeth’s past slips a note through her door asking to meet.I liked this one even more than the first in the series and will be waiting eagerly for the next installment!
