::The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie::
I read the book two months ago. I bought it for 1AED at a Charity Book Sale. I have no knowledge of Agatha Christie except that she is a celebrated mystery writer. I bought it specifically because I wanted to read at least one of her works (and it had baby pink paperback cover lol!). It turns out, I got a very good bargain (the book was brand new) because The Murder of Roger Ackroyd is considered one of her most famous and controversial work. One short autobiography in UK even hailed the book as Christie's masterpiece.
Published in 1926, this detective fiction features Hercule Poirot, the lead to solve the murder. There was an initial suspect and then soon everybody was being questioned. The book ends with an unprecedented plot-twist that made an enormous impact on the genre. Although it is a suspense mystery, there were a lot of funny lines especially pertaining to the character of Caroline Sheppard. Oh you will adore her too when you have the chance to read.
::A Time To Kill by John Grisham::
This legal suspense thriller is about a black girl raped by two rednecks. The town reacts with horror until the girl's father takes justice into his own hands. He kills the two whites on their way to jail. For days, the nation sits spellbound as the defense lawyer struggle to save his client's life and his own.
