The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
September 2010
1 hour 27 minutes
This is the story that made Agatha Christie famous, and which was also one of her own favourites. It begins when the wealthy Mrs Farrars is found dead of an apparent overdose, one year after the death of her husband. The villagers of King's Abbot are suspicious, for local rumour has it that she poisoned her husband and was in love with Roger Ackroyd. Was it suicide, brought on by a guilty conscience, or could she have been murdered? When Ackroyd is found stabbed to death the following day, there is little to go on. Anyone in the house could be the culprit - Ackroyd's niece, Flora; Raymond, Ackroyd's secretary; or even Parker, the butler. The prime suspect, however, is Roger Ackroyd's stepson, Paton, who has disappeared and is known to have gambling debts. Luckily, one of the newest residents of King's Abbott, who has retired to the village to cultivate marrows, is none other than the redoubtable Monsieur Hercule Poirot... This ingenious mystery is brought to life with a full cast including John Woodvine, Diana Olsson and Deryck Guyler.

I love a good Hercule Poirot mystery, especially when he seems to be living a normal life and he gets enrolled into a new crime scene to play out his daring deductions (with his "little gray cells" intact). Agatha Christie gives me reasons to hope for the best, because every one of her stories wind down to display justice. She is an amazing heartful writer and the most daring and prolific author. As always, hats off to her, "The Queen if Mystery!" Regards, F. H. Allen
