Fiona Shaw returns to the Thursday Murder Club series with a tour-de-force performance befitting Richard Osman's rich character development and cleverly connected crimes. Shaw's subtle variations in tone, cadence, and accent distinguish the familiar residents of Cooper's Chase, as well as the sweeping cast of police detectives and criminals. Osman's wise decision to continue aging his intrepid pensioners is echoed by Shaw in her emotional connection to the characters, particularly through her understated rendering of Joyce's contemplative diary voice. Osman expertly weaves an intricate tale of heroin smuggling, online elder scamming, and the sometimes-crooked antiques business with the vicissitudes of aging and its ensuing pain, all warmly realized by Shaw's stellar narration. A fascinating discussion between author and narrator ends the audiobook. S.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2023]
