The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.
We're jealous of anyone who gets to experience this perennial favorite by Agatha Christie for the first time. There is a world of “stranded on an island" literature on the bookshelves. Start here for the gold standard in mystery.
One of the most famous and beloved mysteries from The Queen of Suspense—Agatha Christie—now a Lifetime TV movie.
"Ten . . ."Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious "U. N. Owen."
"Nine . . ."At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.
"Eight . . ."Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . as one by one . . . they begin to die.
"Seven . . ."Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?
One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.
One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.
The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.
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 beston the top notch of detection.
What Agatha Christie taught me was all about the delicate placement of the red herring. She was the ultimate genius behind ‘by indirections shall we find directions out.’
"One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day."
