This is another mystery by Agatha Christie featuring Hercule Poirot. Roger Ackroyd is found murdered in his study. Again, as with most Agatha Christie books, there are a number of suspects and red herrings. Normally I cannot figure out the murderer until it is revealed. This time around, I was able to figure it out but only about four or five pages before the big reveal. I have not read a lot of books by this author (probably only about 4) but to date, this is my favorite. I enjoyed the story line that Poirot had actually retired to a small village and was living a quiet life until his assistance was requested to solve this murder.
This book was required reading for a university class that I am taking this fall and I am very glad this was the Christie book that was picked as I found it quite enjoyable.
