A game of Duplicate Bridge leads to duplicate death. Both victims were strangled by the same sinister method. But what was the connection between the first, a mysterious man of the world, and the second, an ambitious widow.

Double the murder means double the stakes in Georgette Heyer’s classic crime story.


Inspector Hemingway has his work cut out for him when a seemingly civilized card game ends in a double murder.

The two crimes appear identical, but were they carried out by the same hand?

When Timothy Harte’s young fiancé – a put-upon secretary and suspected gold digger – becomes the inspector’s prime suspect, Harte is determined to prove her innocence.

But when he starts digging into her past, he finds it’s more than a little bit shady…
