"It's been an enjoyable and murder-free time for Judith, Suzie and Becks - AKA the Marlow Murder Club - since the events of last year. The most exciting thing on the horizon is the upcoming wedding of Marlow grandee, Sir Peter Bailey, to his nurse, Jenny Page. Sir Peter is having a party at his grand mansion on the river Thames the day before the wedding, and Judith and Co. are looking forward to a bit of free champagne. But during the soiree, there's a crash from inside the house, and when the Marlow Murder Club rush to investigate, they are shocked to find the groom-to-be crushed to death in his study. The study was locked from the inside, so the police don't consider the death suspicious. But Judith disagrees. As far as she's concerned, Peter was murdered! And it's up to the Marlow Murder Club to find the killer before he or she strikes again..."--… (mais)

I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book. I was distracted by a few phrases that seemed overused ("If I'm honest..." -- is that something British people say all the time or a quirk of this author?). Also the plot stretched belief a bit too much for me, even for a cozy mystery! Still, this was a quick and fun read with a charming setting and a likable cast of characters. ( )

Es ist einige Zeit vergangen seit „Mrs Potts’ Mordclub” in einen Mordfall verwickelt war. Nun steht die Hochzeit Sir Peter Bailey mit Jenny Page an und Judith, Suzie und Becks sind zur Party am Vortag der Hochzeit eingeladen. Doch es kommt nicht zur Hochzeit, denn der Bräutigam wird von einem Schrank in seinem Arbeitszimmer erschlagen. Das Zimmer ist jedoch abgeschlossen und der Schlüssel steckt in der Tasche des Toten. Die Polizei geht von einem Unfall aus, aber Judith Potts ist anderer Ansicht.
Auch in diesem zweiten Band der Reihe geht es beschaulich und sehr britisch zu. Der Schreibstil ist bildhaft und unterhaltsam.
Die Charaktere sind gut und skurril dargestellt. Judith Potts, Suzie Harris und Rebecca (Becks) Starling sind ziemlich unterschiedlich. Sie haben sich durch einen Mordfall zusammengefunden und ihren Mordsclub gegründet. Die Polizei macht es sich leicht, indem sie von einem Unfall ausgeht. Aber die Damen sind anderer Meinung und übernehmen kurzerhand die Ermittlungen. Ihre Methoden sind recht unkonventionell und mangelnde Beharrlichkeit kann man ihnen auch nicht vorwerfen. Judith Potts kratzt zwar schon fast an den achtzig und damit deutlich älter als Suzie und Becks, aber das ist ihr kaum anzumerken, wenn sie einen Mordfall klären will.
Es ist gar nicht so leicht dem Täter auf die Spur zu kommen, denn die Verdächtigen haben wohl alle ein Alibi. Daher tappte auch ich lange im Dunkeln, aber am Ende löst sich alles nachvollziehbar auf.
Ein humorvoller Krimi für Agatha-Christie-Fans. Mir hat es wieder Spaß gemacht, mit dem ungewöhnlichen Trio zu ermitteln. ( )

I enjoyed 'Death Comes To Marlow' a little more than 'The Marlow Murder Club'. It seemed to me that the writing had improved: the exposition was smoother and the main characters were more nuanced, as if Robert Thorogood had gotten to know them better.

As with the first book, much of the humour comes from the dialogue between the three members of the Marlow Muders Club and plays on the different ways that they see and describe the world and the attention they pay to all the small markers of class and privilege that sit just beneath the surface of so many social interactions.

Becks, the vicar's wife and the one who best fits into the monied and titled world in which the murder takes place, got a little more air time and a little more backstory and the book was all the better for it. Judith has become a little less prickly but remains imperious and unstoppable and Suzie adds some earthy pragmatism and also got a little more development in her role as volunteer radio host on the local radio. I liked the DS Tanika Malik seemed to become an honorary member of the Marlow Murder Club this time around. The change at work that facilitated this made the plot more plausible and allowed the relationship between Judith and Tanika to become more personal.

I thought 'Death Comes To Marlow' had a much stronger plot than its predecessor. The locked-room puzzle at the heart of the mystery was ingenious and compelling and the way the big reveal was handled was original, and clever and helped further to build the relationships between the main characters. The plot was complicated and elaborate but required less suspension of disbelief than the first book. I also benefitted from having a plausible and interesting suspect pool.

It seemed to me that there was a clear subtext to this novel: Men are even dumber than they look but may still be dangerous. Women are smarter than they will let you see and can be just as dangerous.

Death Comes To Marlow' kept me entertained and deepened my engagement with the main characters. I'm now looking forward to the third book, 'The Queen Of Poisons' which is due to be published in January 2024 ( )

Smug to say I picked the killer early in this one! ( )
