The fourth book in Richard Osman’s Thursday Murder Club series “The Last Devil to Die” starts with a real shocker: a surprising death that catapults us straight into an engrossing storyline full of shady characters ranging from drug traffickers to antiquities merchants. Oh, and let’s not forget a painfully obvious love scam that targets a newcomer to the group. The Last Devil to Die doesn’t skimp on unexpected twists and turns, keeping you glued to the pages as you try to solve the central mystery.
Police officers Chris and Donna want to help but are kept at a distance by their bosses. Still, they can’t resist doing some sneaky investigations on their own.
The main characters all have their own things going on. Ibrahim is still seeing his therapist, who is actually a prisoner. Joyce becomes more interesting and surprising. Ron, unfortunately, is kind of left out this time due to a silly fight with his new girlfriend, Pauline.
Elizabeth, the heart of the series, has some tough personal choices to make, which affect everyone.
What truly elevates this book, though, are the characters we’ve all grown to love. Joyce really shines in this one, proving she’s more than just a lovable old lady—she’s got some serious investigative chops. Ibrahim opens up in a poignant way, giving us a glimpse into his past that adds new layers to his character.
The book isn’t just about solving the murder. It’s really about friendships and relationships and how they change over time. The ending leaves you hanging with questions, making you eager for the next book in the series. A must-read!
