In the sprawling, half-timbered mansion in the affluent suburb of Swinly Dean, Aristide Leonides lies dead from barbiturate poisoning. An accident? Not likely. In fact, suspicion has already fallen on his luscious widow, a cunning beauty fifty years his junior, set to inherit a sizeable fortune, and rumored to be carrying on with a strapping young tutor comfortably ensconced in the family estate. But criminologist Charles Hayward is casting his own doubts on the innocence of the entire Leonides brood. He knows them intimately. And he's certain that in a crooked house such as Three Gables, no one's on the level...


Kirsten  (kmcripn) There's nothing like an Agatha Christie novel to clear your literary palate.

This one was quite nice. It was one of those nice mysteries she does every once in a while where the detectives are competent, but not stupendous. Where they stumble their way through a mystery and somehow get to the truth...

Can't wait to hear what the rest of you think...


Susan | 30 comments I really liked this one. Charles himself seemed to be a bit of a cipher, but I found all of the Leonides family to be very interesting people, including the departed Mr. Aristide. And I think I suspected every one of them (and the domestic servants too) before it was over, as they all seemed to have some kind of motive. In the end, I was most fascinated with (view spoiler) I'd probably still find this one an interesting read the second time.
