Summary:

Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the 'Best Crime Novel of all Time'
Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
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. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose.
However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over—none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

    This is my first audiobook, and Agatha Christie novel. I absolutely adored Hugh Fraser narrating this story. He was engaging and his voice felt natural as it brought authenticity to each character. The story itself is wonderful! Amazingly depicted and perfect for anyone who loves a good "who done it?" story. Being a self proclaimed gunshoe at these types of mysteries, I was able to figure it out, though I imagine most people would find the ending shocking. I absolutely loved this story and all of the characters. In my opinion, there were no slow segments, and it kept my interest constantly. I was able to finish this book in only a few days because I couldn't stop listening. I would highly recommend this book.

    In short, if you want a book that will shock you, read this one. Well crafted, with devious plot devices, Christie showed her genius for detective fiction with this book. It was a work of genius because she had the imagination to do something amazingly original. This is her most classic work of all time.
