The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

Set in a small town called King’s Abbott, the ever-so witty and peculiar Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, is asked to investigate the murder of a wealthy man, Roger Ackroyd.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd has all the elements of a classic whodunit mystery—small town, everyone knows everyone, and all the characters have something to hide. Agatha Christie scatters clues as to who the murderer is throughout the novel, and yet the final chapter is truly surprising and completely unexpected.

Dubbed the “Best Crime Novel of all Time” by the British Crime Writers’ Association, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is certainly one of Christie’s best, even the Queen of mystery listed the novel as one of her favorite “Christies”. This is a must-read for crime fiction lovers and Christie’s fan.
