We’re breaking our own rules this month and sending the *gasp* second book in a series. We think it’s just that good. And trust us, you won’t be missing out on anything. Here’s Brenda’s review of the September selection, The Man Who Died Twice.
“As they bask in their solving of the recent real-life murder case, Elizabeth gets a note from an old friend, asking her to come visit him…he's recently moved into Coopers Chase. But the note is signed ‘Marcus Carmichael’ and Elizabeth last saw Marcus in 1981 - the year his dead body was pulled from the Thames River.
So, begins their new adventure. It was a delight to follow my favorite quartet of septuagenarians on this latest escapade, full of murder. With Richard Osman’s cunning, skill and humor, you can’t beat this series! It’s definitely Top 10 material for 2021!” - Brenda
The first in this series, now in paperback, was a major hit for us last year, racking up award nominations and bringing absolutely refreshing golden-age throwback fun.
Eighty-year-old detectives Bryant and May, who met and became friends during the Blitz, operate in the Peculiar Crimes Unit of the London Police Department. The cases sometimes take them to dark places, but their cantankerous humour and brilliance make this series shine.
