And Then There Were None is a mystery novel by English writer Agatha Christie, her best selling novel and described by her as the most difficult of her books to write. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 6 November 1939, as Ten Little N*****s, after the British blackface song, which serves as a major plot point.
The US edition was released in January 1940 with the title And Then There Were None, which is taken from the last five words of the song. All successive American reprints and adaptations use that title, except for the Pocket Books paperbacks published between 1964 and 1986, which appeared under the title Ten Little Indians.
The book is the world's best-selling mystery, and with over 100 million copies sold is one of the best-selling books of all time. Publications International lists the novel as the sixth best-selling title.

The worst edition ever of this work: full of spelling/mechanical errors.
Best plot twist ever
You will never guess who the murderer is. I promise you that. This book is a work of art much like the murders.
Bad publisher, great story.
Terrible publisher. Insane amount of spelling mistakes and/or typos. It’s the same great story though as long as you can read over the typos.
