By 1925 he had published 18 plays and three novels, including The Red House Mystery (1922). This was Milne's first and final venture into the detective and mystery genre despite its immediate success and an offer of 2,000 pounds for his next mystery novel.
The story is set in the quaint English countryside, at the house party of Mark Ablett, where a murder quickly takes place. Milne lets his readers inside the head of his amateur detective, disregarding the clichéd romance or violence of other detective novels, as the mystery becomes a puzzling sort of parlor game for the novel's characters and readers alike.

I came upon this by accident and was so glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and although I guessed a small part of the plot I really enjoyed the explanation of the who and why etc. at the end. It is a pity that there no more written by A.A.Milne as I would have had another favourite author along with Agatha Christie to listen to.
