The world's best-selling mystery with over 100 million copies sold!
Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Indian Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear.

And one by one, they die.
The Spectator (London): ‘Agatha Christie's masterpiece.’
The New York Times: ‘The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.’
A good book
The author does a great job in creating suspense, interest and developing the story. I was quickly hooked into the story and ended up finishing it in 4 swift days.
Each character is deeply explored and the plot takes twisting turns that shocked me every time.
Although the epilogue may be not viewed by all as a good explanation of the events it does bring the plot to a whole circle and doesn’t leave any gaps.
Overall it’s a good book to read that I’m sure many will enjoy.
Amazing story telling
An absolutely fantastic book. So we’ll written.
Gripping from start to finish.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Being that it is one of Agatha Christie’s most popular books I can’t believe that I’ve never read it before. Having read quite a few of Christie’s other books I had high expectations when I began this novel. I was not disappointed. I was so hooked that I finished it within a couple of hours!
Agatha Christie surpasses herself with this seemingly unsolvable mystery, and yet the solution is not over complicated but surprisingly and satisfyingly simple.
One unexplainable murder follows another, suspense builds to an extraordinary and terrifying climax, until the mystery is finally solved. I can guarantee when you finish you will put the book down with a satisfied sigh.
This is now my number one murder mystery novel, I think that any other crime novel will pale in comparison with Agatha Christie’s famous work ‘And then there were none’.
