Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pungent dialogue and A1 characterization.

Ms. Heyer is one of the most entertaining writers I have ever read.

Miss Heyer has the delightful talent of blending humor with mystery.

An elegant card party turns deadly...

Inspector Hemingway has his work cut out for him when a seemingly civilized game of Duplicate Bridge leads to a double murder. The crimes seem identical, but were they carried out by the same hand? Things become even more complicated when the fiancee of the inspector's young friend Timothy Kane becomes Hemingway's prime suspect. Kane is determined to prove the lady's innocence-but when he begins digging into her past, he finds it's more than a little bit shady...

Ranks alongside such incomparable whodunit authors as Christie, Marsh, Tey, and Allingham.

-San Francisco Chronicle

The wittiest of detective story writers.
