75th Anniversary Edition.
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 . . .
'The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd', catapulted Agatha Christie's reputation from that of a leading mystery storyteller to the undisputed Queen of Crime. That it shocked the crime-writing fraternity, splitting the opinions of the respected Detection Club down the middle, simply proved Agatha Christie's adroitness as an author and her capacity to challenge the genre in which she was writing.
This 75th Anniversary Edition, including a rarely-seen foreward by the author, commemorates the book's status as ground-breaking piece of literature.
