Book Review: The Bullet That Missed By Richard Osman


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?


As always, each member of the group gets their own little piece of the spotlight, and the dialogue is snappy and often laugh out loud funny.

However, best part is how layered these mysteries are. It’s obvious a lot of thought goes into these plots, and the intrigue is always absorbing.

The characters are still as sharp and witty as the first two novels. Overall, anyone who loves mysteries or crime fiction will like this series. It’s smart, clever and oh so entertaining!

4/5 Stars
