Mark Ablett is missing. His brother Robert appears to have been murdered. But is there a viable suspect among the half-dozen guests at the Red House Inn? Perhaps the mysterious Antony Gillingham is the only one who can piece the puzzle together. But Mr. Beverly wonders why he appeared on the scene so suddenly. A.A. Milne fans will enjoy getting to know him as a dramatist/novelist, the role that actually catapulted his career before he brought Winnie-the-Pooh to life.
Far from the benign and humorous escapades in his famous Hundred Acre Wood, A. A. Milne brings to The Red House Mystery all the suspense of a classic whodunit - an unexpected visitor, a mysterious murder, a secret passageway, a beautiful woman, and a suspicious valet. But when a guest at the inn becomes a self-appointed "Sherlock Holmes" and acquires his own, personal "Dr. Watson," some intriguing evidence comes to light! Written for an audience of teens and adults, this fresh edition of a classic detective thriller establishes the marvelous versatility of its famous author for a new generation of readers.
