What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Double the murder means double the stakes in Georgette Heyer’s classic crime story.

Inspector Hemingway has his work cut out for him when a seemingly civilized card game ends in a double murder.

The two crimes appear identical, but were they carried out by the same hand?

When Timothy Harte’s young fiancé – a put-upon secretary and suspected gold digger – becomes the inspector’s prime suspect, Harte is determined to prove her innocence.

But when he starts digging into her past, he finds it’s more than a little bit shady…
