9780006136651: The murder of Roger Ackroyd

Hercule Poirot has to solve a fiendishly clever murder mystery in this newly adapted full-colour comic strip adventure.

Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.

Roger Ackroyd knows too much. He knows that the woman he loves poisoned her brutal first husband. He also suspects that someone has been blackmailing her. Now, tragically, the news has come that she has taken her own life with a drug overdose.

But the evening post brings Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he can finish reading it, he is stabbed to death…

Product Description:

BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffat as Hercule Poirot. Mrs Farrars is found dead of an apparent overdose one year after the death of her husband. The villagers of King's Abbot are suspicious. The rumour is that she poisoned her husband and was in love with Roger Ackroyd. When he is found murdered the following day, there is little to go on. Luckily one of the newest residents who has retired to this normally quiet village is none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

Review:

"The most brilliant of deceptions." - Julian Symons; "Very few (detective stories) provide greater analytical stimulation." - The New York Times; "Original and ingenious." - The Nation and Athaneum; "The truly startling denouement... will restore a thrill to the most jaded reader of detective stories" - New York Herald Tribune
