"That morning, Beulah bought the weapon. Before supper, she had spit out her hatred for the victim in poisonout - and public - words. And at the party, she was the last to see him alive.
"They found him slumped in a chair - his handsome head lolling forward on his well-cut dinner jacket - his florid face hideously distored. A horrible death, observed the Inspector. But very simple for a young lady like Beulah to arrange . . . "; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; 191 pages;
"Mrs. Haddington was best known for two things: her spirited games of duplicate bridge and her beautiful nineteen-year-old daughter, Cynthia, whom every bachelor in London seemed to be courting. But she soon became notorious for a more ominous reason: during one of her bridge evenings Dan Seaton-Carew, a rather rakish middle-aged man with whom Cynthia had recently been quite infatuated, had excused himself to make a telephone call in the study, where he was found strangled shortly thereafter. Then, when Mrs. Haddington herself was found strangled in the same spot several days later, the police realized that the game of duplicate bridge could now be called duplicate murder. "
