It's not a bad story, if you're interested simply because it was written by A.A.Milne, but it's not brilliant either.

When Mark's wastrel brother, Robert, reappears from Australia there's plenty of trouble heading to the Red House.. but can Antony Gillingham, who walks in just after the murder occurs, find out exactly what has happened to the missing Mark?
This is a decent, clean murder mystery without a hint of the gratuitous. Even the murder appeared to be described in a nice manner. It’s a typical, traditional whodunit: an apparent locked room problem with a little intrigue is included into a relatively short read. It’s written in quite refreshing and upbeat way, which to be honest I didn't expect.
The characters were interesting and the ending’s pretty good. However, there was one minor irritation part way through, as Milne allowed his amateur “Sherlock” to share his findings/thoughts in painstaking detail. Given the fact that this is a short book anyway I found this unnecessary.
If you want a light-hearted, cosy crime story that you could read on a slow afternoon then look no further than ‘The Red House Mystery’. All things being equal, I’m glad I stumbled upon the opportunity to discover it myself.
A small comment about the cover and the print:
I found the typeface coupled with the narrow line spacing difficult to read. Also, the cover is looked like it was produced on matt card from your average printer. Yes, I appreciate that it’s a ‘vintage’ paperback, but I would have expected something a little nicer for the price.
Nonetheless, I enjoyed it and wouldn't want to put anyone off. Lovely sentences throughout.
