Duplicate Death




Georgette Heyer's brilliant and highly acclaimed series of detective novels, now in a handsome new package

A civilised game of Duplicate Bridge ends in a double murder in which both victims were strangled with a tourniquet of picture wire. The crimes seem identical, but were they carried out by the same hand? The odds of solving this crime are stacked up against Inspector Hemingway. Fortunately, this first-rate detective doesn't miss a trick.
