Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon. One of the party is found murdered, and tension mounts as the survivors realize that the killer is not only among them, but is willing to strike again... and again.Review:
‘One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.’
‘The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.’
‘One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.’
‘There is no doubt that this is a highly ingenious jigsaw by a master of puzzling.’
‘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.’
‘The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.’
