McGavock High - Teen Fiction
Agatha Christie is the most popular mystery writer of all time. With over two billion copies of her books in print, her genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime...

In the quiet village of King's Abbot a widow's suicide has stirred suspicion -- and dreadful gossip. There are rumors she murdered her first husband, rumors that she was being blackmailed, rumors that her secret lover was Roger Ackroyd, who was stabbed to death in his study. And there are rumors that his neighbor, Hercule Poirot, doesn't have a clue.

Setting up the traditional rules of mystery only to shatter them, this ingeniously tricky masterpiece startled fans, polarized critics, and stunned the Detection Club, the highly esteemed literary organization, of which Christie herself was a member. One of the most famous detective novels ever written, and certainly one of the most controversial, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was championed by Dorothy L. Sayers who said, "Christie fooledyou [all]... It's the reader's business to suspect everyone". And you will.
