I had high hopes for this bridge-related mystery (a genre that I collect), but they were pretty thoroughly deflated. Priebe makes some use of the bridge tournament milieu, but none of the game itself, in spite of the clever title. There is no opportunity to participate in solving the mystery; we know the perpetrator from the beginning. The characters are pretty thin, and the style grates occasionally. My recommendation: "pass" on this one.
