A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation starring John Moffatt as Hercule Poirot.

Mrs Farrars is found dead of an apparent overdose one year after the death of her husband. The villagers of King's Abbot are suspicious. The rumour is that she poisoned her husband and was in love with Roger Ackroyd. When he is found murdered the following day, there is little to go on.

Luckily one of the newest residents who has retired to this normally quiet village is none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

    " I liked the way in which the story was told and solved. I found the solution to be unexpected and therefore all the more enjoyable. "

    " It is a shocking end who reads Agatha Christie for the first time. Unbelievable climax and make the readers to guess on murderer in each chapter. That guessing keep on changing in all the chapters. But still i am proud that i suspect and guess him correctly in 24th (out of 27th) chapter. A must read for thriller lovers. :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kanika | 2/16/2014

    " An excellent read!! i begin to comprehend why Ms. Christie is the most widely read novelist. Intricate plot. Suspicious characters, each one with something to hide.. but things cannot remain hidden from the shrewd Mr. Poirot. A twist ending that will baffle even the most brilliant and analytical readers.. Look fwd to reading more of Agatha Christie "

    " I didn't know about the hype surrounding this book when I began reading. So I had no expectations as to what to expect. And I did not expect THAT! - I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Auridélia | 1/17/2014

    " Agatha Christie fascinates me! However, I really expected a different end for this story... I felt a little bit disappointed, but nothing that makes me feel, even slightly, less excited about reading Agatha again and again and again! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/16/2014

    " Another masterpiece from Christie. Though the cat is out of the bag, my head is still reeling over the revelations. Mystery novel at its finest :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 12/23/2013

    " Classic murder mystery solved by Poirot's little grey cells. This is Agatha Christie writing at her best. I didn't guess the murderer will you? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 erica | 12/17/2013

    " A really unusual Agatha Christie book. Not my favorite of hers but still worth a read. "

    " Made me a fan for life! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy Bell | 12/6/2013

    " I love how Christie breaks the rules in such a clever way. She never lets me down! I listened to it on CD and the narrator was brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terence | 12/6/2013

    " Ha ha, what great fun this was! I understand this caused quite a sensation when it came out, and yet I was able to guess the ending within the first ten pages. Even so this was a blast to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 11/30/2013

    " Honestly, I read nearly every Agatha Christie book when I was a tween. They made a big impression on me, definitely shaped me. This one stands out - I remember it vividly = an exceptionally shocking ending... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ellen | 11/4/2013

    " Unfortunately, this book was recommended ad part of an example of a spoiler alert, so I knew who did it. Blast it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 10/17/2013

    " Reminded me of why I so love Agatha Christie, whom I hadn't read in years. She wasn't always the "cozy" writer we often think she was, as this edgier work testifies. I'm so surprised I didn't remember how it ended, as the ending seems so unforgettable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbi | 7/31/2013

    " Agatha is always a delightful read. I'm not sure I could go to bed without one of hers to read. This is one of her best plots. "

    " Magnificent ending never expected it. Highly recommend "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ana | 2/5/2013

    " Salah satu alesan kenapa aku bisa bener nebak siapa pembunuhnya adalah karena banyak yang bilang bahwa pembunuhnya ngga disangka-sangka. hehehe... sayangnya, efek baca buku AC adalah: ngga bisa berenti baca dan pengen ngelanjutin ke seri-seri berikutnya. (ngga tau harus seneng atau sedih) "

    The scene of murder is talked about a little too many times in the same fashion which was irritating but the revelation makes up for everything else. "
