Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the "Best Crime Novel of all Time"
Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Rojer Ackroyd.
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. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over—none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

Great read on a stay at home weekend. It was hard to put the “book”down. As many have said M. Hercule Poirot introduces himself in an unassuming way but vet quickly takes center stage noticing all and choreographing the characters unbeknownst to them. A must read.
Spoiled for me
I guess it would have been awesome if the person didn’t say who did it in the reviews.
What a twist
The ending to this book genuinely shocked me. I recommend this for your first Agatha Christie book if you’re new to the author. DO NOT seek out any spoilers, just let this one happen to you.
