The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was one of Agatha Christie's own favorite works, a brilliant work that confirmed her reputation as the Queen of Mystery and firmly established her as an immortal titan of the genre.
Roger Ackroyd knew too much, certain that the woman he loved had poisoned her violent first husband. He suspected that someone had been blackmailing her, and then tragically, she took her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
The letter brought Ackroyd one last fatal bit of information, but before he could finish reading it, he was stabbed to death. It then is up to one of his oldest friends, and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village, Monsieur Hercule Poirot, to take over the investigation.
