Praise

Praise for The Man Who Died Twice:

“These septuagenarian sleuths of the Thursday Murder Club don’t miss a beat…”
—People

“It’s taken a mere two books for Richard Osman to vault into the upper leagues of crime writers… The Man Who Died Twice. . . dives right into joyous fun. Osman’s writing reminds me of Anthony Berkeley’s in its mixing of sparkling humor and resonant emotion. . . No wonder readers, myself included, have surrendered to [the Thursday Murder Club members’] abundant charms.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“Think of the Thursday Murder Club itself as a senior version of ‘The A-Team’. . . Funny, moving and suspenseful. . .  So delicious, even adorable . . A wildly entertaining book.”
—The Washington Post

“[Feels] like a reunion with old friends. Clever, witty, and touching, this thriller has it all.”
Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Before She Disappeared

“A thing of joy. Osman has a natural sense of humor that he’s able to translate into both character and dialogue.”
Kate Atkinson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Big Sky

“Osman delivers another must read full of humor and heart. I loved it.”
Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Win

“This book is SO MUCH FUN! Fiendishly clever and brimming with wit on every page, The Man Who Died Twice is the tonic we all need. Osman just gets better.”
—Shari Lapena, New York Times bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

“He’s back and he’s better than ever! By turns moving, hilarious, and brilliantly suspenseful, the novel keeps us flipping pages from start to finish.”
—Jeffery Deaver, #1 international bestselling author of The Final Twist

“Osman’s novels are so much more than just brilliantly engineered mysteries… They’re also funny, warm, and big-hearted. He can’t possibly write them fast enough to suit me. These books are absolute gold.”
Joe Hill, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fireman

“Richard Osman’s action-packed second outing with the Thursday Murder Club overflows with wit, friendship, and derring-do, as the eccentric quartet of British crime solvers joins forces from a countryside retirement village. They tussle with the mafia, investigate murders, and, of course, enjoy teatime.”
—The Christian Science Monitor

“The club makes a triumphant return… The Man Who Died Twice, like its series predecessor, is an unalloyed delight, full of sharp writing, sudden surprises, heart, comedy, sorrow and great banter.”
—Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
 
“Fun and ingenious … Osman blends humor and pathos while weaving his tangled web of intrigue and deception. This is the perfect book with which to unwind.”
—Malcolm Forbes, Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Osman follows The Thursday Murder Club, his supremely entertaining debut, with an even better second installment. . . A clever, funny mystery peopled with captivating characters that enhance the story at every quirky turn.”
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“It’s impossible to single out any one feature that makes The Man Who Died Twice such an absolute treat… Richard Osman creates real magic with his characters. They are frequently laugh-out-loud hilarious but also entirely real and three-dimensional…If possible, this sequel is even better than the Osman’s charmer of a debut, The Thursday Murder Club. This series is both a load of fun and an ode to how the power of friendship is important throughout one’s life but especially during the final stretch. Don’t miss it.”
—BookPage (starred review)


“[The Man Who Died Twice] captures the spirit of older folks who don’t want to be pigeonholed by their age and who capture the charming insouciance of those who’ve seen a lot. . . the dialogue at a sprightly clip, while the plot itself often gallops. But it is the four very different. . . but utterly endearing members of the club who will leave readers eager for Osman to call the next meeting to order.”
—Booklist

“Riveting. . . The twisty plot, knotty issues of relationships with life partners, and steadfast loyalty among the sleuths provide depth and poignancy. Those who prefer their mysteries with touches of spycraft, humor, and eccentricity will be well pleased.”
—Publishers Weekly

“This slick sequel will leave you buzzing with ‘the gentle hum of contentment.’” 
—The Times (London)

“If you liked The Thursday Murder Club, you’re in for a treat, as this sequel is even better.”
Good Housekeeping (UK)

“It’s balm for the soul.” 
Daily Express (London)

“It’s an unalloyed pleasure to spend time with Osman’s sparkling, well-observed characters who are also wittily perceptive about our foibles and the quirks of modern life.” 
Sunday Express (London)

“Osman’s characters are beautifully drawn, and the result is a novel that’s pure pleasure to read.” 
The Observer (London)
