Publisher's Summary

The first in a stunning new series introducing the Marlow Murder Club!   

"A hugely enjoyable murder mystery written with wonderful verve, humour and compassion. Utterly delightful." (Robert Webb)   

"I love Robert Thorogood’s writing." (Peter James)   

From the creator of the BBC One hit TV series Death in Paradise.   

To solve an impossible murder, you need an impossible hero....   

Judith Potts is 77 years old and blissfully happy. She lives on her own in a faded mansion just outside Marlow, there’s no man in her life to tell her what to do or how much whisky to drink, and to keep herself busy she sets crosswords for The Times newspaper.    

One evening, while out swimming in the Thames, Judith witnesses a brutal murder. The local police don’t believe her story, so she decides to investigate for herself and is soon joined in her quest by Suzie, a salt-of-the-earth dog-walker, and Becks, the prim and proper wife of the local vicar.   

Together, they are the Marlow Murder Club.   

When another body turns up, they realize they have a real-life serial killer on their hands. And the puzzle they set out to solve has become a trap from which they might never escape....

An awful lot like Thursday Murder Club!

This immediately reminded me of Richard Osman Thursday Murder Club books. This pales in comparison, unfortunately, but is still a fairly quick, enjoyable read. Very fluffy.

Very Enjoyable Story and Narration

I like Robert Thorogood's Death in Paradise Novels, so I thought I'd give this a try. I am very happy I did. The story is intricately plotted, kept me guessing (wrongly BTW) right up to the end, and entertaining. The characters are all believable. Judith, the crossword puzzle creator, Becks, the vicars wife, Susie the dog walker, and Danica the policewoman, all improbable friends work together through several comic situations to crack the case and bring the killer to justice.
I hope Mr. Thorogood will write more stories for these lady sleuths to solve.
Nicollette McKenzie does a great job with all the voices and her tone is an easy listen. Nothing shrill :-)

Feisty Mrs. Potts is a gem!

There was something wonderful about the way Mrs. Potts works through the strings that were so disconnected and pulls everything together. A woman of unending surprises and curiosity is a great "star" for this story which I hope will have other audible releases with the same wonderful narrator and characters.

If you love cozy mysteries this is for you

Narration was excellent and easy to follow. The story was entertaining and the characters were phenomenal. It’s a very fun story. Cannot wait for the next one! I love the show death in paradise and just saw that the writer of that program is the author of this book!
