In what is considered to be one of her most controversial mysteries, Agatha Christie breaks all the rules of traditional mystery writing.
"The truth, however ugly in itself, is always curious and beautiful to the seeker after it."
Hercule Poirot, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd

When the widow Ferrars dies from an overdose of veronal, the residents of King's Abbot are shocked. Not twenty-four hours later, Roger Ackroyd—the man she had planned to marry—is murdered.
This baffling, complex case involving blackmail, suicide, and violent death, causes Poirot to come out of retirement to investigate and to reach one of the most startling conclusions of his career.
As with the best Christie mysteries, the clues are there all along, hidden in plain sight.
