Book of the month
Elizabeth, Joyce, Ibrahim and Ron might be pushing 80 but they still have a few tricks up their sleeves. Can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer before it's too late?
Read it before the sequel comes out in September. A funny and clever best-selling novel, you can now borrow the printed book without a wait if it has been on your to-read list for a while. We’re sorry though, you will still have to wait for the e-book or e-audiobook.
