If you like your murder mysteries charming and your sleuths immensely likable, then this British treasure is for you. The Thursday Murder Club meets weekly in the Jigsaw Room of Coopers Chase, a retirement community. Elizabeth (with a murky background in espionage), Joyce (a nurse ready for a new romance), Ron (famous activist of the sixties), and retired psychiatrist Ibrahim enjoy attempting to solve cold cases from the newspapers. Their first real case begins when a local developer and owner of Coopers Chase is found dead. Soon they are using all their expertise as well as their powers of persuasion with the police to solve the case, as additional bodies turn up.
