text_tax Rs 165
Agatha Christie's second novel, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, is her best-known work of detective fiction. It has particularly liked – and commented upon – for the incredible twist at the end as well as Christie's clever manipulation of the narrative till the Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, arrives at “the truth” and unravels the mystery surrounding the murder of a country squire in the fictional village of King's Abbott in England.
The present critical study seeks to analyse and assess this work of the First Lady of Crime Fiction while tackling the several critical textual and critical problems it gives rise to for the benefit of our university students.
