This audiobook hits a rare trifecta: The writing sparkles, the plot is marvelously taut, and Leslie Manville's witty performance delights in so many ways that it follows you around in your head for days after the audiobook is finished. The novel rejoins Elizabeth, Ibrahim, Ron, and Joyce from Osman's THURSDAY MURDER CLUB. These four pensioners have complementary skills, time on their hands, and no patience with vicious people getting away with things. Also, administering rough justice is more entertaining than bingo. Here Elizabeth, unconstrained by the rules of her former spy service, devises an appropriate response to a particularly offensive double murder, while Ron orchestrates payback for the street hoodlum who mugged his friend Ibrahim. The whole thing is an indecent amount of fun. B.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
