‘The Murder of Roger Ackroyd’ is one of the best known and most controversial novels from the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie. Now yours to own on CD or MP3 audiobook, this intense BBC Drama adaptation of her classic whodunit is brought to life by a full cast of distinguished actors and actresses.
The story begins when the financially comfortable widow Mrs Ferrars is found dead. Rumours that she murdered her husband one year previously have circulated around the small village of King’s Abbott ever since his untimely demise, but only Roger Ackroyd - once expected to marry the now deceased woman of wealth - knows the truth. Not for long though. The following day he faces his own end and is found murdered.
But what do you know… the village may have briskly lost two of its most established residents, but there’s a new arrival, who soon shows up to take their place. And that new arrival is none other than the quick thinking Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. It seems that his decision to retire to the quiet community will have to be put on hold as he takes on another perplexing inter-village mystery.
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is a classic Poirot tale, and one that makes a welcome addition to any audiobook collection of Christie’s finest works.
