The story follows four septuagenarians in a retirement community who solve cold cases for fun. They encounter their first live crime, chancing upon the death of a shady property developer.

The success of Osman’s The Thursday Murder Club led to a series including The Man Who Died Twice (2021), The Bullet That Missed (2022), and The Last Devil to Die (2023). A fifth book is set to be released in 2025 to get included in the list of the four New York Times bestsellers.
