Book Review: The Man Who Died Twice By Richard Osman


It’s the following Thursday.

Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague, a man with whom she has a long history. He’s made a big mistake, and he needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster, and a very real threat to his life.

As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds too? Well, wouldn’t that be a bonus?

But this time they are up against an enemy who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at knocking off four septuagenarians. Can The Thursday Murder Club find the killer (and the diamonds) before the killer finds them?


I am so glad I listened to my friend about picking this one up!

I see I rated the first book poorly, must have caught me on a bad day because I absolutely LOVED this one. I must reread the first one again because of this.

So glad I listened to my friend and continued this series. What is actually not to love about the characters. They all crack me up in their own way. The plot was moving moderately as well what is not to love.

The characters all have their own personalities. I listened to the audiobooks so at times I can get confused between Elizabeth and Joyce but I love the duo and the rest of the gang. + the new editions in this second novel. Again, I love when the audiobook’s narrator does the voices spot on as it does make or break a read/listen for me.

Hilarious and heart-warming.

5/5 Stars
