Richard Osman to embark on new series of crime novels
Viking snapped up two further Thursday Murder Club novels and two in a new series to launch in 2024. Harriet Bourton, publisher, acquired UK rights from Osman’s agent Juliet Mushens at Mushens Entertainment. As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds too? Well, wouldn't that be a bonus? I enjoyed reading the Thursday Murder Club and The Man who died Twice. The original introducing senior citizens as people real people who have much to contribute to our Society still, was genius. The characters and their foibles both witty and endearingly recognisable, the genre captivating without the in depth blood guts and gore impressive, overall an entertaining read leaving you wanting more, hats off to Mr Osman and thank you. Reply THE FOURTH NOVEL IN THE RECORD-BREAKING, MILLION-COPY BESTSELLING THURSDAY MURDER CLUB SERIES BY RICHARD OSMAN Bourton said: “Since the launch of his debut in 2020, Richard Osman has been entertaining millions of readers around the world who have taken his characters into their hearts. While the gang’s sleuthing will continue in future instalments of The Thursday Murder Club, we are extremely excited that with this new deal Richard will also be introducing us to a new series. The entire Viking team believe in Richard’s longevity as an exceptional storyteller, and this four-book deal marks Penguin’s long-term partnership with him: a career we are endlessly ambitious about.”While working as the creative director at TV giant Endemol, he pitched the idea for Pointless to the BBC, becoming the co-presenter along with Alexander, when it began in 2009. He created the series where he’s jokingly referred to as Armstrong’s “pointless friend”. He previously worked exclusively in behind-the-camera roles for other shows. Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague, a man with whom she has a long history. He's made a big mistake, and he needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster, and a very real threat to his life. Osman will begin a new series in 2024, starring a father and daughter-in-law duo who run their own private investigation company which takes them around the world, solving mysteries that nobody else can. He told BBC News in July that his new series will be "a sort of Thursday Murder Club meets The Da Vinci Code", inspired by a recent visit to a bookshop. Osman added: “I’m so thrilled to be writing more Thursday Murder Club books at Viking, the gang couldn’t wish for a happier home. And I’ve been secretly excited for a while now about my new series, which I think readers will love. More details soon, I promise, but for now here’s a toast to more Joyce, Elizabeth, Ibrahim and Ron, and to some brand-new friends too.” Richard Osman was born in Billericay, Essex, England on November 28, 1970 and is a writer, comedian, producer, and television presenter. He is best known for creating the BBC quiz show Pointless.

Opening the new Osman is like sitting down to dinner with treasured friends you know are going to kill you - deliciously!' PETER JAMES As the gang springs into action they encounter art forgers, online fraudsters and drug dealers, as well as heartache close to home.Richard says that he is a major fan of crime fiction and believes it is the sort of book he would eventually write. Authors he likes include Agatha Christie, Patricia Highsmith, Jeffrey Deaver, Shari Lapena, and Harlan Coben. He feels that writing a mystery novel gives him the perfect excuse to think up a perfect murder, in case you should ever need one. Except trouble is never far away where the Thursday Murder Club is concerned. A decade-old cold case leads them to a local news legend and a murder with no body and no answers. He wrote this novel in secret as he worked his other jobs before he sprung it on eager agents. In all, it took him eighteen months to write it. He gave it a month, then thought he quite liked it. Richard was doing a little bit less producing, and an idea came to him when he had the time and some discipline. If Richard told the sixteen year old version of himself that he would end up writing a book, he would say, yes of course, it makes total sense. This is because at sixteen, he spent all his time with some paper and a pen, mainly just writing down jokes. Younger him would be incredibly proud of writing a novel however the first thing he would ask is how many copies did he sell?

One doesn’t have to leap over tall buildings (or even hedges) to contribute to the world. Thank you you including us in your world.
