Richard Osman - The Last Devil to Die: Beware, this one has a potentially upsetting plot development. Otherwise, it’s as delightful as always. #cursorybookreviews #cursoryreviews ( )
  khage | Feb 20, 2024 |
Dieser vierte Thursday Murder Club-Band ist sehr geprägt von persönlichen Schicksalen. Stephens Demenz spielt eine große Rolle. Ich finde die Entwicklung, die das Buch hier nimmt, nicht so gut. Gerade, weil ich es aus eigener Erfahrung mit lieben Angehörigen weiß, würde ich den Weg so nicht gehen, ich würde es eher so sehen wie Joyce. Auch Ibrahim erzählt seine Geschichte, nämlich dem neuen Mitglied „Computer-Bob“. So gab es diesmal weniger zu lachen, als viel zu bedenken. Der Fall (Heroinhandel) war weniger interessant als die letzten. Donna und Chris kamen mir auch zu kurz. Insgesamt habe ich wahrscheinlich zu schnell nacheinander die drei letzten Fälle gelesen, denn jetzt brauche ich erst mal eine Pause. ( )

This book is funny, warm, clever, yes, but at its heart there is a poignant and sensitive exploration of the devastation dementia wreaks on people’s lives. You don’t have to have read the first three volumes in the Thursday Murder Club series to enjoy this one, but you really should treat yourself by doing so. With each new instalment, more quirky lovable characters are gathered into the fold. Mr Osman has promised us more, I can’t wait to catch up with the gang for more adventures. ( )

The Last Devil To Die (TMC #4) (2023) by Richard Osman. We have traveled with our
Small group of clever heros as they have managed to be the smartest players in their game,
but this time out the “leader” is sidelined with other pressing matters. There two stories
played out here. As usual there is a murder to solve, which rapidly spins into several killings.
Kuldesh Sharma, who we have met in a previous beak, is the owner of an antique store.
An ugly little box has been forcibly sold to him by what he assumes to be a gangster of
some type. The stipulation on the purchase of the box is that Kuldesh has to save it and sell it
to a particular fellow who will offer 500 euros for it.
Obviously a drug transaction between the beer and seller with what they hope to be
a silent middleman. But things go wrong when that night Kuldesh is murdered and the box
goes missing.
Kuldesh was friends with Stephen so he was friends with the entire extended murder
club family. They rapidly move into action (as fast as people at their age can, which is, for
our younger readers, very fast indeed) and get on the trail of the drug traffickers. In the
absence of Elizabeth, who is dealing with a much more pressing matter, Joyce steps up to
lead the little band. They group has added Computer Bob to their number, a retiring man
who knows about searching hard drives and the like. He brings a subtle surprise into the
group.
As they follow what few leads there are they encounter other people interested in the
antiques trade. From dealers and forgers to academics who know of the lands where the
drugs originated, the extra characters possess traits and desires of their own, often conflicting
with the murder club.
While there is pressure on the police to solve the crime, there is even greater applied
to the local drug movers. The supply lines from the Middle East have been shaken in the last
months, but with the missing shipment, someone is going to pay dearly.
But that is only part of the story. Elizabeth and Stephen take a journey to unexpected
lands themselves, and the outcome will affect the gang in several different ways. I found their
journey to be the real treasure in this story. Both sad and sweet and joyous to various degrees,
it is something to behold.
With the combining of the two adventures, writer Osman has left us with the best story so
far. Of course, do your own self a favor and read the four books in order as the vital core of
the stories is the growing relationships for all the characters, not just Joyce, Ron Ibrahim and
Elizabeth, but the entire population of their “family”, including you, the reader.
Not to be missed. ( )
