Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This audiobook in The Thursday Murder Club series is read by a new narrator, Fiona Shaw.

A new mystery is afoot in the third book in the Thursday Murder Club series from record-breaking, bestselling author Richard Osman.

This audiobook includes an exclusive interview between Richard Osman and journalist and TV presenter Steph McGovern.

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?

Great story - Missed Leslie

Loved the story as usual and the new narrator tried really hard but just not the same. The comedic elements just didn’t come across in the same way.
Would love to see it re-recorded by Leslie - would purchase again with her reading.

Great book but sad not to hear Lesley Manville narrating

Very enjoyable book but a huge shame not to have had Lesley Manville narrating, as seemed to be promised in the interview at the end of the second book.

The Bullet That Missed

The Third instalment of the Thursday Murder Club did not disappoint.

A wonderful story with all my favourite characters back . An ending that has me wanting the next book now.

I also have a new favourite character named Allan.

Still a good listen.

Yes the new narrator is hard to adjust to once you’ve already invested in the previous two books narration but still a good listen.
