About this deal
In fact, I think all mystery lovers should do themselves a favor and give this series a try, because if you don’t, you are really missing out on something special!
Publication information is for the USA, and (unless stated otherwise) represents the first print edition. The Man Who Died Twice focuses on the theme of age, with Osman saying that he did not want to patronise the elderly.
