Product description

Agatha Christie's world-famous mystery thriller, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers. 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...

Author information

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Arguably one of Agatha Christie's finest works, this is the story of a murder mystery that involves more than one murder; ten to be precise. The problem is that they are only ten people on the island and which one of them is the murderer?
Ten people find themselves invited to a reclusive island under mysterious circumstances. They are cutoff from the mainland because the only access on and off the island is via boat, that is not going to come till the storm clears and the storm has just begun. Over dinner, a recorded message plays and each person is told that they will meet their death because they are all guilty of murder themselves. They are being punished for their crime and they will meet their death according to the nursery rhyme which is the title of the book as well. As paranoia and hysteria escalate with each murder, the question remains as to which one of the victims is also the murderer or is it someone else on the island?
A truly terrifying read about crime and punishment, this is Agatha Christie at her finest.

Review quote

'Agatha Christie's masterpiece.' Spectator '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
