Format: Mass Market Paperback
Identical twins Bert and Nan Tatum are used to being mistaken for each other. So when a stranger approaches Bert on the street, she assumes the stranger is looking for Nan. Only later does she find out that Nan didn't know him either. By that point, he's dead. Nan, curious as to how a complete stranger knew them, drags Bert into the investigation. But it's soon clear that they are both in real danger and the only way to get out alive is to solve the case themselves.
This book is a lot of fun. The "gimmick" of alternating chapters from Bert and Nan is part of it. It took me awhile to get used to it, but it brings out the humor in the different points of view. The authors, identical twins themselves, have done a good job of creating very great characters. Nan and Bert are very different, and the other characters are also well defined. The plot moves along at a quick pace and reaches a logical conclusion. A great first novel in an enjoyable series.

I love mysteries and "snack" on them the way others indulge in junk food. I'm addicted, and in Double Murder I found a mystery as good to read as chocolate is to eat. (And with the possible exception of sex and sports cars, very few things are as good as chocolate.) With Double Murder the reader gets a bonus--not only a great mystery but a glimpse into the world of twins. The authors do for twins what Tony Hillerman does for the Navajo Indians and Elizabeth Peters does for Egyptology. What's next on the twin authors' list of mysteries?

A fun new series! 18 Jun 2001
By Anthony P Perrotta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When identical twin Bert Tatum is approached on her lunch break from a handsome man who seems to know her (though she's never seen him before in her life) she doesn't think much of it. It happens occasionally that she's mistaken for her twin sister, Nan. Unfortunately, when the stranger shows up murdered on the local news and her sister claims to also have never met him, the mystery begins!
The twins both get themselves involved in an intricately-plotted puzzle that involves a murder from their childhood somehow tying-in with the current tragedy. Twists and turns abound and the writing is sassy and enjoyable.
The interesting thing about the book is that alternating chapters are written in the first-person by each of the twins, giving each part a unique perspective on the goings-on. It's particularly fun when chapters overlap and you can see either the similarity or complete difference in both Bert and Nan's points of view.
A charming and quick read, I found it difficult to put down! It's also the first book in the series so it's a great place to start if you're interested! I've purchased the second and am eager to start it!

Twins you say? 3 July 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The only problem with Double Murder, is how will these two gifted writers ever top it! Tight, quick plot, unique insight. A real page turner. Both Mccafferty and Herald are terrific writers on their own --together they may well be dangerous. Give it a 10 only because a 20 is not available

A hilarious page-turner I could not put down 1 Dec 1996
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Double Murder not only had an intriguing mystery to solve, it
offered a lot of inside information about a subject that has
always been a mystery to me: twins. The book is written by
twins, so you know that they know what they are talking about!
It starts out with a situation common to twins, that is, one
twin being approached by a stranger who acts as if he knows
her very well. The twin (Bert) assumes the stranger knows her
sister (Nan), and stops to talk at length. The stranger ends
up murdered, and Bert is apparently the last one to talk to
him! Double Murder is a terrific read I could not put down!
