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…
