Agatha Christie - The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (2nd Hand Hardback)
A facsimile first edition hardback of the 1926 Poirot book, published to mark the 80th anniversary of its publication, the very first Agatha Christie re-published by Collins in 2006, reprinted in 2011.
Roger Ackroyd knew too much.
He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Now, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with a drug overdose. But the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information. Unfortunately, before he could finish the letter, he was stabbed to death . . .
To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this first book in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie.
Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.
