Crooked House Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Crooked House

Agatha Christie often resorted to nursery rhyme titles. This one is just too perfect so I defer to Mother Goose herself:

"There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house."
The review of this Book prepared by Christopher Moore
