Oh my I forgot to show you the book for August! I blame it on being on vacation and then getting back and trying to catch up and now we are in September!!!!! Anyway here it is:
This was written by A.A. Milne of Winnie The Pooh fame. It is his only mystery book and having finished reading it, it is such a shame he did not write any more. It is a cross between Poirot and Sherlock Holmes, who is also referenced in the book.
The House Party are all settled at The Red House with their host, Mark Ablett, when he receives a letter to say his ne’er-do-well Brother, Robert, is coming the next day to visit from Australia. Meanwhile Anthony Gillingham comes to visit his friend William Beverley who is staying and is one of the House Party. When Anthony arrives at The Red House he hears a shot and is dragged in to help break into the room from where the sound of the shot came from and they find a body on the floor which Anthony learns is Robert Ablett from Australia. However there is no sign of the master of the house Mark.
Anthony takes the roll of self appointed Sherlock with William helping out as Watson and they try and find out what happened and where Mark Ablett has disappeared to.
It is not a long book but it flows along really nicely until the great reveal like Monsieur Poirot does, at the end of the book. Highly recommend it if you like this type of book.
I will be back very soon with September’s book.
