Overview

Is it possible in this day of enlightened justice for a man to be punished twice for the same crime?
Double Jeopardy answers this question, at the same time uncovering the greatest of many loopholes in our modern jurisprudence. In this very human but striking novel are portrayed the calamities that can be visited upon any ordinary citizen by the cold dispassionate judgement of our courts and our unimaginative and often stupid juries. Through the eyes of the victim, Peter Thatcher, this tense revelation unfolds, growing to ugly and utterly ridiculous proportions.
"Peter Thatcher has murdered his wife," people said. "I heard them quarreling," announced one. "And I," added another, "saw the blood."
To make matters worse, Thatcher himself could not be quite sure of his own innocence!
Not a problem novel, not a mystery novel, but rather a cross between the two, this thrilling story will always be appreciated by those who read The Postman Always Rings Twice.
