Richard Osman, the beloved novelist and presenter, recently appeared on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show with cinch to discuss his latest book and provide an update on the highly anticipated Thursday Murder Club movie adaptation. In this interview, Osman dives into the details of his new release, The Last Devil To Die, which is set to hit the shelves this Thursday (14th September).

Coopers Chase, the retirement village in the South East of England, once again serves as the backdrop for this gripping installment in the popular Thursday Murder Club series. Osman introduces us to the four unlikely friends at the center of the story: Joyce, a former nurse and diary writer; Elizabeth, a former spy; Ibrahim, a psychiatrist; and Ron, a former trade union official and West Ham fan. Together, they gather to discuss old unsolved murders, but this time, murder comes knocking on their own doorstep.

Osman's characters have become so vividly real to him that people on the street often approach him to discuss them. With a loyal following and critical acclaim, the series has seen tremendous success. The first book, The Thursday Murder Club, holds the record for the fastest-selling debut of all time. In fact, it attracted the attention of Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg, who acquired the film rights in a fierce 14-way auction. Osman provides an update on the movie adaptation, revealing that an American director with extensive experience in England will helm the project. While the production has faced delays due to strikes, negotiations are still ongoing to secure the cast.

As fans eagerly await the film adaptation, they can immerse themselves in The Last Devil To Die. Osman promises a thrilling blend of heart and humor, ensuring a captivating reading experience for loyal series enthusiasts. However, this book also marks a turning point in the series. After The Last Devil To Die, Osman plans to give the Thursday Murder Club a well-deserved "rest" and embark on new creative endeavors.
