Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The superlatively analytical Inspector Hemingway is confronted by a murder that seems impossibleno one was near the murder weapon at the time the shot was fired. Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder, and alibis that simply don't hold up. The inspector is sorely tried by a wide variety of suspects, including the neglected widow, the neighbor who's in love with her, her resentful daughter, and a patently phony Russian prince preying on the widow's emotional vulnerability and social aspirations. And then there's the blackmail plot that mayor may notbe at the heart of the case

PRAISE FOR GEORGETTE HEYER:

Our Georgette Heyer display of the Sourcebooks reprints has been a huge success, not only to those early fans like myself, but to many new readers who appreciate her style and wit. Nancy Olson, Quail Ridge Books, Raleigh, NC

Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen. Publishers Weekly

Wonderful characters, elegant, witty writing, perfect period detail, and rapturously romantic. Georgette Heyer achieves what the rest of us only aspire to. Katie Fforde

Synopsis:

Inspector Hemingway is confronted by a murder that seems impossible--no one was near the murder weapon at the time the shot was fired. Everyone on the scene seems to have a motive, not to mention the wherewithal to commit murder.

Synopsis:

Tragedy befalls the Carter family following an eventful visit from a Russian prince and a scandalous blackmail letter. The murder of Wally Carter is a bewildering mystery — how does one shoot a man crossing a narrow bridge without being near the murder weapon when it is fired? The analytical Inspector Hemingway reveals his unnerving talent for solving a fiendish problem.
