Mini-Review: The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Hercule Poirot #4) by Agatha Christie


I’ve read that this is “the” Agatha Christie book. What did I think? 4.5/5 stars and a fantastic read but not my favorite. That honor is reserved for And Then There Were None.

The pacing, characterization and plot line are superb. I have few squabbles with this book. While I did guess the twist, it wasn’t a disappointment. Because I’ve now read several Christie’s I’ve come to expect the unexpected and that knowledge is the ONLY reason I was able to figure it out. And, even then I wasn’t sure until I saw it on the written page.

A must read for mystery lovers.
