Description

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. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.

But the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he could finish the letter, he was stabbed to death¿

one of A.C.'s best

Better than listening to an Agatha Christie mystery is listening to it narrated by Hugh Fraser or David Suchet. I wish ALL the collection was narrated by either of them. Hugh Fraser's voice is one of the most comforting things ever, maybe because I grew up with the Poirot TV series, where he plays Captain Hastings.

I know all of Agatha Christie's books, I remember most of the solutions, but I simply can't find other murder-mysteries so captivating and elegantly written. This is one of my favourites. I remembered who the murderer was, but I wanted to listen to it anyway. Loved it!

The ending will have your mouth wide open.

This is the first and only book written Agatha Christie that I've ever read.


Go ahead and read it. It is very much worth the hype.

Brilliant twist..... brilliantly read!

This book is a classic! Would recommend to most readers, students to mystery addicts.
Classic Hercule Poirot -Agatha Christie's best.

Very well read, Hugh Fraser does a great job in impersonating voices.... that too fast paced and extremely interleaved.
