Four-star review of The Red House Mystery by A. A. Milne

 This is Mr. Milne’s only mystery. It’s dated, of course, but still well-plotted with interesting characters. Anthony Gillingham arrives at the Red House to meet his friend Bill Beverley, who’s a guest of the owner, Mark Ablett. He finds Mark’s cousin and secretary Matthew Cayley trying to get into the study and when they finally gain entrance from the French doors on the other side, they find a body. I already had an inkling of what was to come, who was dead and by whose hand, so there was no surprise for me  at the end, but it was still a good read. Quick to finish and satisfying in a way as Tony and Bill play Holmes and Watson to uncover the truth.
