Joyce, a retired nurse, is a newcomer to the club, after the founder, and ex-investigator, Penny, is no longer active. They meet on at the retirement center where the four of them live, Joyce, Elizabeth, Ibrahim and Roy and their name derives from the fact that the only slot left for holding their meetings was on Thursday. One interesting thing about this book is that you have the narrative but you also have Joyce putting in a chapter now and then by way of a journal. However she writes in her journal as though she were talking to a friend so she’ll say something like, I never thought of it that way, did you? Odd to be asked a question by a narrator in a book.
Good story about a greedy developer who wants to dig up the old nun’s cemetery and replace it with more housing for the elderly. This is all very upscale and very successful so far. But several people, some residents of the current development and some outsiders lead a protest when he tries to sneak in the heavy equipment and begin work. During the stand off he drops dead. The murder club goes to work, sometimes overstepping their bounds with the local police but Elizabeth knows how to work things out, always to her benefit.
