By Officer Dibble VINE VOICE on 25 Sept. 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Hilda Lawrence penned only a handful of novels in her short career together with this couple of novellas published in 1949. The 'Duet' is made up of 'Composition For Four Hands' and 'The House'.

Sadly this work does not come close to her triumphant 'Death Of A Doll'. Her trademark style of short stoccato sentences should impart pace but instead they drag the narrative down into an obsession with minutiae.

The novellas are not part of the Mark East detective mini-series, Both are attempts at edgy psychological thrillers. In particular 'Four Hands' deserves some credit for the story being recounted from the perspective of a paralysed and dumb narrator.

Having now read all bar one of the books by Ms Lawrence, it is becoming clear that she did not recapture the heights.
