FREE shipping on qualifying offers. When people working on a murder case begin dying mysterious deaths, Internal Affairs detective Felix Palmieri sets out to avenge the murder of a fellow cop and solve the mystery.

ISBN 0671734482 - The best mysteries keep you guessing, trying to get a step or two ahead of the main character. The Thursday Club doesn't do that. Oddly, it's still a really good book. The body of a hooker who's been dead for 25 years turns up in a landfill. The lab guy looking at the bullet ends up dead.

Murano ( Cop Hunter ) and Hammer ( The CBS Murders ) animate this tidy tale of corruption among New York City's power elite with convincing verite. From the opening discovery of a corpse at a huge Staten Island dump to the unexpected revelation on the final page, they deliver surprises with deft competence.

Routine NYPD conspiracy-thriller that should have been better, considering Murano's years as an NYPD Internal Affairs .

The authors spring a nice little surprise up-front, when veteran homicide cop Felix Palmieri, who looks to be the story's hero through his investigation of several cases-including the murders of a black hooker, a top mobster, and an Arab diplomat-is himself gunned down in a dark alley.

In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet up once a week to investigate unsolved killings. But when a local property developer shows up dead, 'The Thursday Murder Club' find themselves in the middle of their first live case. The four friends, Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron, might be octogenarians, but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it's too late?

ISBN 0671734482 - The best mysteries keep you guessing, trying to get a step or two ahead of the main character. The Thursday Club doesn't do that. Oddly, it's still a really good book.

The body of a hooker who's been dead for 25 years turns up in a landfill. The lab guy looking at the bullet ends up dead. The cop he called before he died ends up dead. The cop HE called before he died, however, doesn't. Ben Rogers, once the partner of Felix Palmieri, the dead cop, is determined to figure out how a smart cop like Felix walks into a dead end alley and gets shot point blank in the chest. He takes up all of Felix's open cases, looking for a clue to his killer. At the same time, he's called upon by the new mayor to look into a possible problem with a political appointee.

If you can read this, without being several steps ahead of Ben, you must be new to the genre. The hooker is presented first thing, and the clues for the rest of it are all too clearly laid out on the book flap. Even the very final riddle, one that isn't even mentioned until it's solved in the final five words of the book, is given away in the text. That's not what makes this good. The characters, the ones you like and those you don't, are what turns The Thursday Club from a mediocre whodunit into a worthwhile read. From Ben's grandmother to the snitches he uses, from his boss to the boss of bosses, the characters and their motives are clear and well-written. Murano and Hammer are a fantastic team.

This is the type of story that Actors would sink their teeth into. The characters are compelling and draw you into a world that could exist in any era of the 20th century. Can be brought to life on the silver screen in the classic tradition of many of the great crime dramas. Detective Ben Rogers stealthily weaves his way through many dangerous leads in pursuit of his best friends killer. Various sub-plots intertwine challenging your deduction skills at every turn. A fun and informative read, too. All of the characters are interesting but unfortunately, some are killed off for the sake of the story. I'm glad this book got a second life otherwise I may not have had the opportunity to enjoy it.

The Twist in the end makes you retrace the steps you took to get there. You become a detective yourself trying to figure things out. Pay attention to all conversations! The characters are classic! A great conversational device.
