A house full of eccentric characters. And one amateur sleuth racing to fit all of the crooked pieces together. Crooked House is the epitome of an Agatha Christie novel in fact, Christie herself described it as one of her own special favourites. Acknowledged the world over as the undisputed queen of crime, Christie composed the plot of Crooked House with all her usual brilliance, teasing the reader with multiple red herrings and canny psychological insights before leading them to a resolution that still has the power to shock, even today. This edition features seven evocative colour illustrations by artist Sally Dunne that perfectly capture the 1940s period and country-house setting, as well as a binding design that, like Christies writing, is both beautiful and sinister.
This book is in brand new condition. The only reason it is not sealed is because Folio Society no longer seals its books in plastic. They just wrap paper around them in an effort to be more environmentally friendly.
