The Red House mystery

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.

Description

Classic crime, at its very best.

With a new introduction by Gyles Brandreth.

The Red House is a country residence far removed from the world of the Hundred Acre Wood but its story has much of the same charm and wit. There is, of course, a murder, and when the local police fail to solve the crime, an amateur sleuth readily steps in. What follows is a delightful whodunnit with humour, excitement and a suitably surprising twist at the end.

A. A. Milne loved detective stories and pays homage to Sherlock Holmes in his detective – the clever and charismatic Anthony Gillingham- and his assistant, Bill Beverley. This is classic crime at its very best.

‘I love his writing’ P.G.Wodehouse
