Notes From Your Bookseller

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.

A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick

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?

Editorial Reviews

Daily Herald (UK)

The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

Time magazine

One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.

The Observer (UK)

One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.

New York Times

The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.

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.

Elizabeth George

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.’

Time Magazine

"One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day."
