The Murder of Roger AckroydDownloadable Audiobook - 2008
Finicky Hercule Poirot has retired to the countryside. Dr. Sheppard, observing his new neighbor, is sure that he must be a former hairdresser. But the brutal murder of wealthy Roger Ackroyd reveals the truth: the peculiar little man is actually a detective par excellence. Poirot shrewdly sorts out the clues and shocks everyone with the facts about the killer, in this stunning landmark of the mystery genre. This is the most controversial of Agatha Christie's many tales, and some critics consider it the most brilliant. Shattering traditions, this ingeniously tricky masterpiece startled fans, stunned critics, and has remained one of the most controversial mysteries ever written, ever since its original 1926 publication. Ranked number 12 by the Mystery Writers of America in their list of the Top 100 Mystery Novels of All Time; deemed one of the five best mysteries of the 20th century by the Bouchercon Mystery Convention, the largest mystery convention in the world.
