"The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd" came highly recommended as an antidote to my fairly disappointing read of the 1966 Poirot novel, "Third Girl", I'd been told that the "Murder of Roger Ackroyd" written forty years earlier when both Poirot and Christie were in their prime, would give me a taste of the r...
