    Enjoyed this book!

    Part of my love of mysteries is pitting my wits against the detective to see if I can figure out "whodunnit" before the writer reveals the villain to me. I will say this book was a challenge. I had the first murder all figured out but had no idea who had done the second until I was told. Both solutions made total sense but I was definately challenged! I would reccomend this book to anyone who enjoys a good British mystery. Ms. Heyer also has added mysteries to a few of her romances. If you read "Duplicate Death" and like it, try my recommendation. I don't know of another writer that can make me laugh like Georgette Heyer.

    I Also Recommend:

    A classic British Detective Novel in the best tradition of Christie and Marsh marked by Heyer's sparkling dialogue and deft characterization.

    In Duplicate Death, the delightfully sharp-tongued and observant Inspector Hemingway needs all his famous "flair" to discover who murdered a gentleman with a shady past during an evening of Duplicate Bridge hosted by a woman whose entrance into high society is shrouded in mystery. The victim is dispatched within fifteen minutes of leaving the game to receive a telephone call in his hostess's boudoir. Which of the several persons absent during that time frame had the motive, means, and opportunity to strangle him with a piece of wire and another item used as a tourniquet?

    Just as the reader begins to form an opinion as to who committed the first murder, one of the prime suspects is strangled in an identical manner. Were the crimes the work of the same individual or a copycat killer?

    The situation is further complicated by the questionable past of several of the suspects, including the fiancé of Inspector Hemingway's young friend, Timothy Kane.

    While solving the mystery, the reader is treated to moments of high comedy provided by an overindulged beauty and her prosy aunt, a young gentleman who has recently abandoned his communist leanings to inherit a title, and Timothy's spirited courtship of his embittered fiancé.
