What Crooked House is about:
In the sprawling, half-timbered mansion in the affluent suburb of Swinly Dean, Aristide Leonides lies dead from barbiturate poisoning. An accident? Not likely. In fact, suspicion has already fallen on his luscious widow, a cunning beauty fifty years his junior, set to inherit a sizeable fortune, and rumored to be carrying on with a strapping young tutor comfortably ensconced in the family estate. But criminologist Charles Hayward is casting his own doubts on the innocence of the entire Leonides brood. He knows them intimately. And he's certain that in a crooked house such as Three Gables, no one's on the level...
Why I wanted to read it: I'm on a huge Agatha Christie roll right now. I can't seem to stop myself!

- Before I check out any AC's on audio I make sure that Hugh is the narrator. I absolutely love his voice and he really just does a phenomenal job!
- This is one story that I just couldn't get enough of! Normally, I hate driving ,but I couldn't wait to jump in my car so that I could get back to this riveting story.
- I loved every single aspect of this audio book and if you can believe it or not...I figured out who the murderer was!! I still can't believe it but I did figure it out!
- This one has a bit of a creepy gothic feel...not only because of the crooked house but also because of some of the characters.
Agatha Christie has a way of keeping the reader on their toes and leading them astray with just little tidbits that make the reader second guess their own intuition. I love her writing and her clever twists in her stories! This one will be a top favorite for me!
