THE MURDER OF ROGER ACKROYD

by | Read by Robin Bailey

Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1926

Christie's classic detective story of the murder of the man who knew too much is read in a classic British style by the late Robin Bailey. Bailey portrays the storyteller, Dr. James Sheppard, stoically and his co-investigator and new neighbor, Hercule Poirot, diplomatically. Listeners will quickly be embroiled in Ralph Paton's story, Mrs. Ferrars's suicide, the Tunisian dagger, and Ursula's tale. Bailey adds to the intrigue by using various accents, variable pacing, and a distinctive lightness of tone and pitch to distinguish the numerous male and female characters. Christie's complex plot maintains suspense, and Bailey's performance will totally immerse listeners in the British country-house experience.
