The Marlow Murder Club (2021)

Robert Thorogood
"It combines deft plotting, witty dialogue and a trio of formidable female amateur investigators – a dog-walker, a vicar’s wife and a septuagenarian crossword compiler – of whom the last is one of the most original and beguiling characters I have read about for a long time. The book is a delight from start to finish. Robert Thorogood has brought the fun back into crime fiction."
