Very dated, but still has sparkling conversations. ( )

Heyer's work has been heartily recommended to me, but unfortunately I didn't see that this was period Enclish mystery, a la Agatha Christie. Not my cup of tea (forgive) at all. Yet, read it. Even enjoyed it. ( )

Excellent mystery. The group of suspects seems small since the murder takes place at a bridge party and only a handful of people are absent from play during the critical time frame. But nothing is as simple or straightforward as it seems. Good dialogue and descriptions that are hilariously droll. This book is delightful. ( )

Such an intelligent, witty read. Georgette Heyer never disappoints! ( )

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...

First words
There were several promising-looking letters in the pile laid on Mrs James Kane's virgin breakfast plate on Monday morning, but having sorted all the envelopes with the air of one expectant of discovering treasure-trove, she extracted two addressed to her in hands indicative either of illiteracy or of extreme youth.
