Overview

First, there were ten—a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they're unwilling to reveal—and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times
“The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.”
Time magazine
“One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.”
New Statesman (UK)
“There is no cheating; the reader is just bamboozled in a straightforward way from first to last….The most colossal achievement of a colossal career. The book must rank with Mrs. Christie’s previous best—on the top notch of detection.”
The Observer (UK)
“One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.”
Daily Herald (UK)
“The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.”
