Reviews

"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

"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. 'They carried a kind of magic, the four of them, ' a policeman muses. That magic is still there in abundance."
--Washington Post

"The Thursday Murder Club is back, and that should make everyone happy -- except, of course, murderers. 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, Osman up there effortlessly balancing on that very high bar."
--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"The mysteries are complex, the characters vivid, and the whole thing is laced with warm humor and--remarkably, considering the body count--good feeling. Your next must-read mystery series."
--Kirkus, starred review

"Bestseller Osman's diverting third Thursday Murder Club mystery (after 2021's The Man Who Lived Twice) delivers laughs along with a nicely woven plot....The pace is breezy, the characters are intelligent and varied in their interests and backgrounds, and the humor is often pitched to readers who understand the vagaries of getting older. Osman reliably entertains."
--Publishers Weekly

"It's charming and, as always, will leave you guessing the murderer until the very end."
--Town and Country
