The most controversial murder mystery novel of all time is 75 years old, and celebrated in this special edition.
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. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose.
But the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he could finish the letter, he was stabbed to death…
Agatha Christie outraged mystery-writers and critics alike when The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, her debut novel with Collins, was published – the twist, they said, was not only unconventional but a cheat. But the book put Agatha Christie on the map and has remained one of the most accomplished and best-selling murder mysteries of all time. This special commemorative edition in Flamingo Modern Classics highlights Agatha Christie’s achievement.

“A classic – the book has worthily earned its fame.”
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
