This detective story is set on a English country house, where Mark Ablett, arranging a house party consisting of a widow and her marriageable daughter, a retired major, a willful 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.
Holmes and Watson
Great read for anyone who likes Sherlock Holmes. Almost too many references to the famous pair
I liked how the “detective “ was happy and guessing all the time and getting things wrong. The answer was the only thing I thought of that he didn’t mention in his musings.
The Red House Mystery
Very well done!
