This was a pleasant surprise. Not the usual cup of tea for this hardboiled cynic but I needed something to read and my sales rep had just sent me a copy. I took it home and got completely sucked into the plot featuring 4 very disparate retiree’s and the club they had formed solving cold cases their original member, a homicide detective, had squirreled away. Then an honest to god real life murder takes place involving their community and now it’s up to them to piece together the threads and point the police in the right direction, while digging up even more dirt than intended. Fun, fast, and utterly charming, I’ll be looking for more from Mr. Osman in the future.
