The game-changing mystery that the Crime Writers’ Association hailed as the best crime novel ever written.

Detective Hercule Poirot is urged out of retirement to solve the murder of Roger Ackroyd, a wealthy widower found stabbed in his study. In the deceptively quiet village of King’s Abbot, potential motives abound—involving blackmail, revenge, legacies, and more—but they are hard to recognize amid so many layers of secrecy and misdirection…or they would be, for anyone but Poirot. Who’s hiding what, and which was the secret that ultimately provoked the crime? You can’t possibly imagine.

In her deservedly celebrated masterpiece, Agatha Christie outwitted critics and readers alike with a fiendishly clever denouement that still retains its power to shock even the most jaded mystery fan.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, this edition of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.
