‘Everyone concerned in them has something to hide’, said Hercule Poirot.
Agatha Christie has pulled out a clean thriller in ‘The Murder of Roger Ackroyd‘, which gets better and better as the story goes forward. The author earns a special praise for writing a complex story that has numerous characters and subplots.
The beauty of the story is that every character is doubted as the murderer. This is very well complimented by Hercule Poirot with his stand that ‘Everyone concerned in them has something to hide’.
The book falls under the league of classic detective mystery fiction and has great narration by Christie. Two characters steal the show in their own different styles – Hercule Poirot and Dr. Sheppard. Poirot sticks to his little old grey cells and Sheppard plays the perfect foil for the mystery. Everyone has something to hide, true enough!
The story’s end haunted me for hours. It is indeed one of Christie’s masterpiece.
