The Red House Mystery (Vintage Classics) (Paperback)
Far from the gentle slopes of the Hundred Acre Wood lies the Red House, the setting for A. A. Milne’s only detective story, where secret passages, uninvited guests, a sinister valet, and a puzzling murder lay the foundations for a classic crime caper. When the local police prove baffled, it is up to a guest at a local inn to appoint himself "Sherlock Holmes" and, together with his friend and loyal "Watson," delve deeper into the mysteries of the dead man. This classic example of Golden Age crime writing is a lost gem from a time before Tigger and a perfectly crafted whodunit with witty dialogue, deft plotting, and a most curious cast of characters.
