To solve an impossible murder, you need an impossible hero…
Seventy-seven-year-old Judith Potts is blissfully happy. She lives alone in a faded mansion in Marlow, sets crosswords for The Times, and there’s no man in her life to tell her what to do or how much whisky to drink.
One evening, while out swimming in the Thames, Judith witnesses a brutal murder. When the local police don’t believe her story, Judith and two unlikely friends decide to investigate for themselves. Together, they are the Marlow Murder Club.
But soon another body turns up, and it seems they have a real-life serial killer on their hands. Now the puzzle they set out to solve has become a trap from which they might never escape…
I loved this read, I heard great things about it and they are certainly true. I warmed to Judith, I thought she sounded like a lovely lady, she has a lovely life being able to do what she wants when she wants. When she witnesses something horrific, the police don’t believe her so with the help of a couple of friends, she sets out to investigate themselves. It is a quirky story but a really good one, it made me want to become Judith’s friend and help her out on her quest. I read the whole book in a day and didn’t want to put it down. It was such a good murder mystery story. I look forward to the next book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
