An exclusive authorized edition of a classic Agatha Christie thriller revolving around a devastating family mystery, described by the Queen of Mystery herself as one of her favorites of her published works — now a feature film from Sony Pictures starring Christina Hendricks, Gillian Anderson, and Glenn Close.
The Leonides are one big happy family living in a sprawling, ramshackle mansion. That is until the head of the household, Aristide, is murdered with a fatal barbiturate injection.
Suspicion naturally falls on the old man’s young widow, fifty years his junior. But the murderer has reckoned without the tenacity of Charles Hayward, fiancé of the late millionaire’s granddaughter.
“Writing Crooked House was pure pleasure and I feel justified in my belief that it is one of my best.” —Agatha Christie
