Murder of Roger Ackroyd, The

MYSTERY. Adapted from the novel by Agatha Christie. Detective Hercule Poirot is forced out of retirement when his friend, Roger Ackroyd, is found brutally murdered. There’s a locked door, an opened window, and a chair that moves itself. To all three, Poirot asks, “Why?” but finds no answer. Assisting Poirot in the investigation, Dr. James Sheppard provides Poirot with one of the most valuable clues in solving the case. However, with every suspect hiding a secret, the truth proves elusive…for a while. Considered one of the best crime novels ever written, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd contains one of the most famous plot twists ever written in detective fiction.
