Staff Reviews


How rare it is that a book written almost a hundred years ago can still make you chuckle, and is not just a symbol of the times but is representative of human nature. You'll adore the small town gossip surrounding King's Abbot and the way Hercule Poirot plays up every towns person's delicate ego. It's a cunning and delightful novel with an ending I truly did not anticipate.

— Christy

Description


Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the "Best Crime Novel of all Time"

Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.

However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over—none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.
