The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is our Christie BOTM. It's a detective fiction by the legend Agatha Christie. It's the fourth novel featuring Hercule Poirot as the lead detective so if you're a fan of the Poirot mysteries, this one's for you.

It's remarked for its startling ending and in fact, in 2013, it was voted as the best crime novel ever. So if you want to try a crime novel, picking this up can be a great option.

Poirot retires to a village near the home of a friend he met in London. Roger Ackroyd is the friend who agrees to keep him anonymous as Poirot pursues his retirement project of perfecting vegetable marrows. But his friend is then murdered.


Woah, doesn't that set up a mystery we know we'll be surprised by? So pick up your copy and let's start reading this.

What's a crime novel you think is the best? Any of the Christie novels? Have you read crime-fiction as a genre?

Comment below and let's discuss!
