Overview

The Red House, stately mansion home of Mark Ablett, is filled with very proper guests when Mark's most improper brother returns from Australia. When the maid hears an argument in the study it isn't long before the brother dies... of a bullet between the eyes! Strangely, the study has been locked from the inside, and Mark Ablett is missing. Only an investigator with remarkable powers of observation could hope to resolve this mystery, and Antony Gillingham (with cheerful Bill Beverly at his side) is just the man.

At first, i hated the horrible text problems created by scanning. Soon, however, i learned to read around the corruptions and actually began tlo enjoy them. For example, the na me of the victim, robert, was corrupted many different ways -- as bobert, bohert, bobcat -- and it seemed as if everyone had their little pet name for the guy. That and other corruptions were actually amusing. The book itself is quite a charming cozy intelligently written.

This is an excellent book. It kept me guessing the whole way through. I love the Pooh stories. However, this is one of my favorite books that Milne wrote!!

This book (for me ) did not get off to a good start. I found the beginning hard to follow and somewhat confused and inarticulate. But the story does pick up and runs good to the end. After a few years I will try again with perhaps a less addled mindset and catch the beginning as it probably was written. It's so difficult to enjoy any book if you don't have the beginning down pat. Probably my fault.

This dead-body-in-a-locked-room mystery was difficult to read at first, but I soon caught on to what was being said. It kept me guessing until the end. There was a different twist to this story that I didn't see coming. Enjoyed it.

I found this book to be unreadable due to lack of proper punctuation, cardboard characters and a silly plot. I gave up after two chapters.

This copy looked more like computer code with nonsense words throughout. Even the title at the bottom of the page had something like "bte red ...msbry" Completely unreadable.

Keeps you guessing. Appropriate characters for that period in history.

I never knew Milne had written a mystery until I happened to discover this a few weeks ago. It was a great read. I would highly recommend!
