9780007202058: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd: Complete & Unabridged

At the end of Agatha Christie’s classic detective novel, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, Hercule Poirot declares with a customary late flourish that the murderer is none other than the book’s narrator. But the narrator is, by definition, suspect. So who can we believe?

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. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.

But the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he could finish the letter, he was stabbed to death…

Review:

“A classic – the book has worthily earned its fame.”
Irish Independent

Book Description:

There are rumours she murdered her first husband, rumours that she was blackmailed, and rumours that her secret lover was Roger Ackroyd. When Ackroyd is found murdered it is unlucky for the killer that Hercule Poirot is close by. Setting up the traditional rules of mystery only to shatter them, this ingeniously tricky masterpiece startled fans, polarised critics, and stunned the Detection Club, the highly esteemed literary organisation, of which Christie herself was a member. One of the most famous detective novels ever written, and certainly one of the most controversial, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was championed by Dorothy L Sayers who said, “Christie fooled you (all)… It’s the readers business to suspect everyone.” And you will.
