Agatha Christie is the queen of crime and her novel ‘And There Were None’ proves it.
And Then….. is considered her masterpiece by many. And is probably described by her as the most difficult of her book written. The story is very engrossing and gripping. As a reader I was just bamboozled in a straightforward way from first to last…
The story involves ten strangers, each with a dark secret, who are lured to a mansion on an uninhabited island and one by one they begin to meet a gruesome end. The plot revolves around a nursery rhyme, as used to commit the perfect crime. Here the diminishing group must try to discover the identity of the murderer.
Who will be the last person standing?
And Then There Were None is a compelling introduction to the mystery genre.
A must read.
