Ten Little Indians is a classic murder mystery novel about ten people caught in a world of paranoia and suspense! Written by world renowned author Agatha Christie, it is also known as And Then There Were None. Ten Little Indians whisks you away to the desolate Indian Island where a group of ten people have all been invited for recreation, relaxation, and a week of fun. However, the fun stops after dinner when a chilling record is played, charging all ten of being involved in murder! After that, one by one, the guests are murdered in the manner described in a child's nursery rhyme. Wits pit against wits as the victims try to find the murderer, and more paranoia ensues when they find out it's one of them! Finally, the last person dies, and then there were none. This classic is full of surprises and keeps you guessing until the end. Another wonderful book by mystery novelist, Agatha Christie.

It is the best Murder Mystery I have ever read. The author keeps the readers fooled until the very end of the book. This is the best Agatha Christie book i've ever read.

In this superlative, three-act, mystery-comedy statuettes of little soldier boys on the mantel of a house on an island off the coast of Devon fall to the floor and break one by one as those in the house succumb to a diabolical avenger. A nursery rhyme tells how each of the ten "soldiers" met his death until there were none. Eight guests who have never met each other or their apparently absent host and hostess are lured to the island and, along with the two house servants, marooned. A mysterious voice accuses each of having gotten away with murder and then one drops dead---poisoned. One down and nine to go! The excitement never lets up in this ideal play for schools, colleges and little theatres.

SPOILER ALERT:

The Ten
Anthony James Marston, a rich, spoiled, good-looking man with a well-proportioned body, crisp hair, tanned face and blue eyes known for his reckless driving. Mr. Owen accused Anthony of running over and killing two children, for which Marston felt no remorse. Marston was the first of Owen's victims, poisoned by potassium cyanide slipped into his drink while gathered in the drawing room with the others.

Mrs. Ethel Rogers, the cook and Mr. Rogers's wife. She is described as a pale-faced, ghostlike woman with shifty light eyes, who is scared easily. Despite her respectability and efficiency, she was obliged to help her domineering husband, Thomas, to kill their former employer, the elderly Miss Jennifer Brady, by withholding her medicine, in order to inherit her money. She was Owen's second victim, dying in her sleep from an overdose of chloral hydrate, which she did not self-administer.

A masterpiece. I've read loads of Agatha Christie's books but this is definitely the best. It's not just the plot that is involving, but also the style itself captures you and sticks you to the armchair. So, cancel all your appointments, sit down confortably and start reading: you won't be able to close the book until everyone in it is dead. And you'll still have not a clue about the murderer. Don't worry,anyway, cos "good old aunt" Agatha will sort everything out and you'll be astonished by the solution.

It's a classic. A collection of odd characters with supreme gullibility lured to an island to be murdered one by one - by whom? Don't approach it logically - just enjoy the tale.

Format: Paperback
Some people criticise Agatha Christie for the "cosiness" of her crime novels, alleging the characters are too stiff-upper-lip and the plots too neatly wrapped up at the end, with life just going on happily as before. But every so often, Christie took a darker turn and delved into a deep exploration of human evil and guilt. `And Then There Were None' is a classic example of this darker Christie (`Endless Night' is another one). On one level, it is a first class murder mystery that holds its own against anything Agatha Christie has written. But it is also an extraordinary study of the psychological disintegration of the characters, as they are confronted with a combination of their impending murder and their own guilt. At its heart, `And Then There Were None' is a study of sin, guilt, and retribution.

This is the very definition of the "locked room mystery". Ten people are enticed to an island off the English coast by the mysterious Mr U. N. Owen. As they gather in Mr Owen's island house, a recording suddenly springs to life and accuses them all of "murder". All ten are allegedly guilty of killings that the law cannot touch; (a judge condemned an innocent man to death, a drunk doctor botched an operation and killed his patient, a soldier ordered a disliked subordinate into a suicidal position, and so on) and Mr Owen seems intent on dispensing some private justice. The guests soon begin dying one-by-one, in the manner of the nursery rhyme `And Then There Were None', and both the mystery and the mental torture deepen as more and more of them are killed off. Is Mr Owen hidden somewhere on the island? Or is it really one of ten themselves who are responsible?
