Mystery & Suspense • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1926

AudioFile Golden Voice Simon Jones delivers Agatha Christie's classic locked-room mystery to perfection. After the overdose death of Mrs. Ferrars and the murder of his friend Roger Ackroyd a short time later, Dr. Sheppard recounts a story of guilt, blackmail, and despair. Hercule Poirot is renting the cottage next to Sheppard's and soon is drawn into the investigation. Jones provides varied accents for characters ranging from Sheppard's plummy-voiced sister, a spinster, to stuffy butlers, eager maids, unreliable Ackroyd family members, and the local police, all of whom populate the village of King's Abbot. Jones's interpretation of Poirot is impeccable. The elaborate setup and misdirections of Christie's 1926 novel offer a master class in mystery writing, and Jones's performance leaves listeners fully satisfied. S.J.H.
