The setting is an English country house, where Mark Ablett has been entertaining a house party consisting of a widow and her marriageable daughter, a retired major, a wilful actress, and Bill Beverley, a young man about town. Mark's long-lost brother Robert, the black sheep of the family, arrives from Australia and shortly thereafter is found dead, shot through the head. Mark Ablett has disappeared, so Tony Gillingham, a stranger who has just arrived to call on his friend Bill, decides to investigate. Gillingham plays Sherlock Holmes to his younger counterpart's Doctor Watson; they progress almost playfully through the novel while the clues mount up and the theories abound. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Red_House_Mystery

The Red House

The reading of Red House began rather slowly. As I continued to read, I could scarcely put it down. From the main characters to the Pond, I kept guessing who "done it". When almost to the end of the reading, I finally figured out the twisted plot. Then, Only to be surprised by the true ending. If you enjoy a surprise ending, you will read this.
