With World War II at an end, Charles Hayward is finally free to marry the woman he loves, Sophia Leonides. However, she refuses - the unexplained death of her grandfather, wealthy businessman Aristide Leonides, draws her back to the suffocating environment of her family home. Charles follows, but his arrival coincides with the discovery that Aristide's death was murder. The ensuing investigation drags Charles into the dark heart of the family, and its deadly secrets and dangers. Even if Charles escapes with his life, will he survive the corrosive effect of the family itself?

    " Agatha Christie made a note in the first page of the book that Crooked House was one of her best writings and I agree, though I personally would not pick this as one of the top 10 from Christie's. The plot is ingenious; murders by poison (which I think is Christie's favourite method of murder) in a rich notable family of Leonides. Strange enough, I like all the characters, except the two main leads, Charles Hayward and his fiance, Sophia Leonides. Charles, as the Leonides' future family member, was assigned by his father, whom worked for the Scotland Yard, to do an inside investigation. Throughout the first few chapters, I found his character seemed to be a bit slow (no snooping around finding things or making any important movements) and not showing any eagerness to solve the case (I can only see his eagerness to quickly marry Sophia) and worse thing is that the whole story was told from Charles's POV, making it rather less exciting. But I would still rate this as a five-star worth plot. A little bit of the story: Charles came back to England, hoping to propose to Sophia, whom he met back in Cairo three years ago and found out that her grandfather had just passed away. Sophia insisted that her grandfather didn't die of natural illness (which was proved right later) and she wouldn't agree to his proposal until the case is solved. Suspicions quickly fell to Brenda, the young widow of Aristide Leonides (Sophia's grandfather). Every member of the Leonides had taken dislike to Brenda whom they believed had married a 70 something year old man for his money and accused her for murdering the old man. All of them wanted Brenda to be the murderess, yet, deep down in their own hearts, they felt that it wasn't her who did this ferocious act. But who, who could have done away the old man? He was not a tyrannical old man, in fact, he loved and supported everyone in the family, and yet he was murdered. Read the rest and be prepared to get shocked at the most unexpected conclusion of the story! "
