The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
Hercule Poirot gets to the bottom of an especially unnerving case in this irresistible illustrated Folio edition of one of Agatha Christie’s most celebrated mysteries, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
‘Agatha Christie had a mind like a mousetrap and taught me, in novels like The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, the pleasure of literary surprise’
- William Dietrich
Proclaimed by the Crime Writers' Association as ‘the finest example of the genre ever penned’, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd contains one of the most celebrated twists in crime fiction and is consistently voted among Agatha Christie’s best novels. It is, famously, the Poirot novel that demands to be read twice: the curious reader cannot resist re-examining what they thought they knew. Laura Thompson, Christie’s biographer, described it as ‘masterly: deceptive in every way’, and it remains a rare treat for those who savour the challenge of a whodunnit, yet love to be taken in by a master of her craft.
