Sir Lawrence Linwood has been bludgeoned to death in his study. His three adopted children, Alan, Roger, and Caroline, return home for the funeral only to be told he was murdered and that his will states that if he were to meet with Unnatural Ends, whoever solves his murder will inherit Linwood Hollow. As the three of them look for clues and dig into the past, forgotten memories surface, and while they always knew their father was bordering on cruel, they would have never guessed how far he would have taken things. As the bodies begin to pile up, the three siblings know they are going to have to be smarter before they meet their own unnatural end.
I tend to scoff when someone compares a mystery writer to Agatha Christie. As if simply writing a mystery puts you in the same category as her. However, I found that Christopher Huang really deserves that praise. This story and the characters are so well written. The plot is engaging and full of suspense, but the slow-burning kind that keeps you pressing on until a big reveal at the end worthy of Hercule Poirot himself. I highly recommend this excellent book.
