Publisher's Summary

The Leonides are one big happy family living in a sprawling, ramshackle mansion. That is until the head of the household, Aristide, is murdered with a fatal barbiturate injection.
Suspicion naturally falls on the old man's young widow, 50 years his junior. But the murderer has reckoned without the tenacity of Charles Hayward, fiancé of the late millionaire's granddaughter.

Surprise ending

This book kept me guessing and in the end I was totally surprised by who was guilty. Typical intriguing and memorable characters associated with Christie. The reader is extraordinarily talented giving different voices to each character so they come alive.

Absolutely loved this book!

What made the experience of listening to Crooked House the most enjoyable?

I loved this book! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone, especially those who enjoy Christie. While this wasn't the typical Poirot story from Christie, I found it just as good as any of her others. She had me completely confounded as to "whodunit", right up to the end.
