5.0 out of 5 stars ...91 chapters that whizz along...Richard Osman at his best...
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 7 January 2023
The third title in the now-famous and highly-popular Thursday Murder club series is the one I've most enjoyed. I thoroughly appreciated the first two books but The Bullet That Missed shows Richard Osman at his best - he's in his stride and clearly enjoying his writing life.

The gang at the retirement village are assembled to investigate the case of Bethany Waites' death many years ago...another cold case for the intrepid retirees under the leadership of ex-MI5 agent Elizabeth Best, her friends Joyce, Ron and Ibrahim - and Alan, Joyce's dog. This time we also have a tv studio, a quiz show, and a few of Elizabeth's old adversaries in the mix. More deaths...more threats...a cast of many new characters. It's all here. And Stephen, Elizabeth's forgetful and less than well husband, also gets involved with surprising results. Bogdan is back and there are love interests for several characters too.

Let Richard Osman entertain you with 91 chapters that whizz along taking us from Sussex to Staffordshire and into the heart of London, with in-jokes - not slapstick comedy - all told in Osman's inimitable spare prose, so well-crafted it never gets in the way of the reader's enjoyment or speed.

My own hobby of looking up places on an internet map has been well catered for - see the sky pool, the new American Embassy and the nearby publishing house. All these places are referenced in Osman's acknowledgement and his sense of fun is woven throughout this novel. He is a generous author who uses his own intellect and quiz knowledge to keep his readers glued to the pages as the mystery and adventure unfolds.

This is more than a cracking good tale - it is a masterclass in making writing look easy - because Richard Osman has truly found his calling. Book Four, due in September 2023, will be much-anticipated.
