Death is No Joke (BX13)

A rich man's family and long-lost heir stay together in a house where someone is playing threatening practical jokes.

The twist in this one hinges on a lesser-known definition of the word "gauche." I always took this word to mean "socially-awkward" or "crass," but it also means "left-handed."
