Agatha Christie outraged mystery-writers and critics alike when The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, her debut novel with Collins, was published – the twist, they said, was not only unconventional but a cheat. But the book put Agatha Christie on the map and has remained one of the most accomplished and best-selling murder mysteries of all time. This special commemorative edition in Flamingo Modern Classics highlights Agatha Christie’s achievement.Product Description:
