9780006117278: Ten Little Niggers

A facsimile first edition hardback of the world’s best-selling crime novel, published to mark the 120th anniversary of Agatha’s birth.

Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N.Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, former reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide.

The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again… and again…

To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this collection of facsimile first editions will be the perfect way to enjoy these books in their original form – 15 novels and one short story collection. Reproducing the original typesetting and formats of the first editions from the Christie family's own archive copies, these books sport the original covers which have been painstakingly restored from the best available copies, reflecting five decades of iconic cover design.

Review:

‘One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.’
Observer

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

‘One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.’
Time Magazine

‘There is no doubt that this is a highly ingenious jigsaw by a master of puzzling.’
Books

‘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

‘The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.’
New York Times
