Crooked house

 

An extended family,  a crooked house, forms the perfect backdrop for the murder and as the rest of the story centers around the masking of the murderer, what follows next is the unraveling of the extended family as old hostilities are bought to the center stage. This is the perfect whodunit novel and initially Christie’s publishers thought the end to be too shocking but still published the same. Christie at her inimitable best which is why it is ranked as one of the top 10 Agatha Christie books
