Over ninety years after its initial publication, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd still stumps readers as a methodical, detailed, and suspenseful whodunit. When King's Abbot resident Roger Ackroyd is found murdered in his study, the famous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is called in to help solve the mystery. As the clues and suspects add up, Christie masterfully weaves several possible scenarios, only to surprise readers at the end. Voted by the British Crime Writers' Association as the best crime novel ever written -- and said to be Christie's favorite of her novels -- it is the third book following detective Hercule Poirot. The Mysterious Affair at Styles and The Murder on the Links are also available from Dover.
