Publisher Comments:

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...

Synopsis:

Three generations of the Leonides family live together in a large, if somewhat crooked-looking house. Then the wealthy patriarch of the household, Aristide, is murdered-injected not with insulin for his diabetes but with a killer substance.

Suspicion falls on the whole houselhold, including Aristede's two sons, his widow - fifty years his junior - and even his three grandchildren. Could any member of this seemingly devoted famly have had a hand in his death? Can Charles Hayward, fiance of the late millionare's granddaughter, help the police find the killer?
