|Plot Summary of Crooked House|
Agatha Christie often resorted to nursery rhyme titles. This one is just too perfect so I defer to Mother Goose herself:
"There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile.
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house."
