The Red House Mystery by A.A. Milne


“…one of the three best mystery stories of all time.”

“…an agreeable book, light, amusing in the Punch style, written with a deceptive smoothness that is not as easy as it looks.”

”This droll whodunit from the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh sparkles with witty dialogue, deft plotting, and an amusing cast. In between taking tea and playing billiards, an amateur detective and his chum investigate their genial host’s disappearance. A series of lighthearted capers ensues, replete with secret passageways, underwater evidence, and other atmospheric devices.” GOODREADS

”Though Milne is immediately associated with Winnie-the-Pooh and pals, he nonetheless wrote a number of adult titles, including this 1922 novel in which guests at a country estate become amateur sleuths when a shooting occurs and all evidence points toward their host.” LIBRARY JOURNAL
