Agathon #7 – The Murder of Roger Ackroyd [1926]
To me, this book is the first one that feels like an Agatha Christie – or at least, what I think of as an Agatha Christie. It’s also one of a handful of her books where I knew going into it what the gimmick/trick to it was – as with The Orient Express, the solution to the murder is a matter of general pop culture knowledge.
