9780099521273: The Red House Mystery (Vintage Classics)

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.

About the Author:

A. A. Milne (1882–1952) is best known for When We Were Very Young and Winnie-the-Pooh.

From Library Journal:

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. This edition contains a new introduction by scholar Douglas Greene.
