Sample text

Successful businessman turned country squire Roger Ackroyd lives in one of those archetypal English villages in which so many of Agatha Christie’s narratives are set. As is always the case in her novels, dark secrets and dangerous emotions lurk beneath the apparently placid surface of village life. When Ackroyd is murdered, stabbed in the neck while sitting in his study after a dinner party, there are plenty of suspects, from his friend, the big game hunter Hector Blunt, to his adopted son, Ralph Paton and his niece Flora.

Her skill in constructing complex and puzzling plots and her ability to deceive readers until the very last page (in some cases, the very last paragraph) of her stories are more than compensation for any shortcomings she might have as a writer. In the eighty years since the publication of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, the ingenious twist on which the story hinges has been repeated in other novels by other writers but it retains much of the shock value for contemporary readers that it had in the 1920s.

W. Sughrue, a likeable, dissolute fellow and, like one or three other American fictional crime investigators, a Vietnam veteran. Crumley alternated appearances by Sughrue and his other ‘hero’, Milo Milogradovitch, who fought in Korea and who has an eye for the ladies and a nose for cocaine – lots of it – before uniting them in his fifth novel, Bordersnakes, in 1997. Apart from his two sybaritic sleuths, Crumley’s books share vivid descriptions of their setting: the beautiful wilds of Montana, and keenly observed accounts of male friendships that are usually fomented through bouts of drinking and/or violence.
