A country doctor is called in when an old friend, Roger Ackroyd, is found murdered shortly after the suicide of a widow who had been Ackroyd’s lover. Was the widow being blackmailed? Who would benefit from Ackroyd’s murder? And what of the doctor’s odd new neighbor, a little mustachioed Belgian with a vegetable garden who is rumored to be a retired detective?
This book is an exhilarating ride with a truly surprising twist ending. I won’t say more for fear of spoiling it. Highly recommended.
