Double, Double (also published as The Case of the Seven Murders) is a novel that was published in 1949 by Ellery Queen. It is a mystery novel set in the imaginary New England town of Wrightsville, US.
Ellery Queen investigates a series of murders that seem to be related by an old rhyme: "Rich man, poor man, beggar man, thief, doctor, lawyer, merchant, chief". And at least one person in Wrightsville calls Ellery Queen "Chief".
Literary significance and criticism
"The last full-fledged Wrightsville novel is as usual strong on characterizations. But some of the deductions made from the clues seem more speculative than logical."
