Solving murders. It’s a family business.

Steve Wheeler is enjoying retired life. He still does the odd bit of investigation work, but he prefers his familiar routines: the pub quiz, his favorite bench, his cat waiting for him at home. His days of adventure are over. Adrenaline is daughter-in-law Amy’s job now.

Amy Wheeler thinks adrenaline is good for the soul. Working in private security, every day is dangerous. She’s currently on a remote island protecting mega-bestselling author Rosie D’Antonio, until a dead body and a bag of money mean trouble in paradise. So she sends an SOS to the only person she trusts . . .

As a thrilling race around the world begins, can Amy and Steve outrun and outsmart a killer?

Praise for We Solve Murders

“Osman introduces another lovable group of unwitting investigators. . . As in Osman’s other series, they cross paths with a variety of people—including drug-dealing politicians, customs agents, and social media influencers—who may or may not be inclined to help them, and watching the unlikely threesome charm each other and (almost) everyone they meet is a delight. . . Osman fans will be glad to hop on that private jet and go along for the ride.”
—Kirkus (starred review)

Praise for The Last Devil to Die

“Skulduggery and laughs abound as our favorite gaggle of amateur-detective retirees tackle drug runners, dodgy antique dealers, art forgers and Battenberg cake recipes.”

“The best Murder Club book yet. . . A poignant complement to both the fair-play mystery plot and the characters’ lively humor.”
—New York Times Book Review

“So what is it about the Thursday Murder Club books that make them so broadly appealing? The simple answer is that they are really good. Osman’s greatest strength is fusing the puzzle-mastery of Christie and her Golden Age peers with emotional earnestness and wry humor.”

“There may be other aged detectives in print and on television, but for wit, intelligence and humanity, the Thursday Murder Club outranks them all.”
—Wall Street Journal

“While author Richard Osman will be moving on to write a second series, he assured me (and the many other readers who are similarly invested) that he’ll return to the funny, sweet stories of my favorite retirement home sleuths. The Last Devil to Die is a beautiful send-off that will get us through the wait."

Praise for The Bullet That Missed

“Osman concocts a satisfyingly complex whodunit full of neat twists and wrong turns. But unlike most crime novelists, he ensures his book’s strength and momentum stem not from its plot or its thrills but rather its perfectly formed characters. Once again, the quartet of friends makes for delightful company… Heartwarming and enthralling.”
—Washington Post

The Bullet That Missed hits on every front. Its quandaries stymie, its solutions thrill, its banter is worth reciting and its characters exemplify an admirable camaraderie. One can only hope that the Thursday Murder Club’s next outing appears before long.”
—Wall Street Journal

“Richard Osman's engaging series about a group of crime-solving retirees has delighted readers since the first book. The Thursday Murder Club, an international bestseller, was funny, original, baffling, poignant and thoroughly engaging. That's a high bar to set from the get-go, but Osman has easily achieved it in subsequent books… This book is as delightful as the others. A remarkable achievement.”
—Minneapolis Star-Tribune


Praise for The Man Who Died Twice

“These septuagenarian sleuths of the Thursday Murder Club don’t miss a beat…”

“It’s taken a mere two books for Richard Osman to vault into the upper leagues of crime writers… The Man Who Died Twice. . . dives right into joyous fun. No wonder readers, myself included, have surrendered to [the Thursday Murder Club members’] abundant charms.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Think of the Thursday Murder Club itself as a senior version of 'The A-Team'. . . Funny, moving and suspenseful. . .  So delicious, even adorable . . A wildly entertaining book.”
—The Washington Post

“[Feels] like a reunion with old friends. Clever, witty, and touching, this thriller has it all.”
Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Still See You Everywhere

“A thing of joy. Osman has a natural sense of humor that he's able to translate into both character and dialogue.”
Kate Atkinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Death at the Sign of the Rook

Praise for The Thursday Murder Club

“Witty, endearing and greatly entertaining.”
—Wall Street Journal

“An amusing debut that finds gold in getting older.”

“[A] jaunty mystery. . . What's delightful is that there are no stereotypes here — the senior citizens solve the murder with wit, style and ferocious intelligence. The puzzle is intricate and involving, but there's a breeziness about it that makes it an ideal hammock read.”

“A little beacon of pleasure in the midst of the gloom. . . SUCH FUN!”
Kate Atkinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Death at the Sign of the Rook

“The mystery’s good, the characters are wonderful, and [the series are] just very entertaining. . . top notch.”
—R.L. Stine, bestselling author of the Goosebumps series
