Review: Duplicate Death

Duplicate Death
Duplicate Death by Georgette Heyer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

In times of stress and too much to do, I head to The Golden Age. It has been a very full on little while and so Miss Heyer is exactly right. Undemanding, old fashioned and gentle. I find I don’t really remember much of the stories but they make light reading and move along at a decent pace. I particularly like the way that she makes you engage with a character and then casts doubt on their motives and makes them a suspect. Hemingway is such a clever man and his manner is really amusing. This one is not the best of them, but it is a satisfactory way to spend a few hours luxuriating in hideous spoilt brats and overbearing mothers, dastardly manipulators and assorted other suspects.
