Considered the best mystery novel ever written by many readers, And Then There Were None is the story of 10 strangers, each lured to Indian Island by a mysterious host. Once his guests have arrived, the host accuses each person of murder. Unable to leave the island, the guests begin to share their darkest secrets--until they begin to die. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
“The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.” (New York Times)
“One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.” (Time magazine)
“One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.” (The Observer (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.” (New Statesman (UK))
“The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.” (Daily Herald (UK))
“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.’ ” (Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley novels)

Ten people are mysteriously summoned to a infamous island retreat. When the launch leaves them on the landing at the isolated house on Indian Island, they are cut off from the world. Their mysterious host is missing when, after a lovely dinner, a harsh announcement from a recording permeates the room, accusing each person of a diabolical crime.
Cradled in fear, everyone wants off the island immediately but there is no way off. One by one, people begin to die. With each suspecting the other, they must wait for the launch to show up, or for their own death.
'And Then There Were None' still holds a certain charm for me, and remains one of the absolute best 'whodunnits' of the century. The prose is simplistic enough for young adult reading, and for the advanced reader it's a bullet-though-a-gun read that you won't be able to put down. Perfect for reading on an airplane or at the beach.
I first read 'And Then There Were None' as a young adult, and while re-reading noticed that though the prose is not very stylistic or grand, the plot alone is enough to keep you turning pages. This short, smart novel is a 'must read' for any mystery or horror lover. Enjoy!
