Then there were none also known as Ten little Indians is one of the few novels of the great British mystery writer Agatha Christie that has neither Miss Maple nor Poirot. She does of course keep her famous trope of putting a small group of people somewhere where they cannot leave, and then take this trope that many a cozy mystery writes perhaps one of her darkest novels. There is no protagonist/detective she gives us to cheer for, everyone is a suspected and ever one is guilty of the crime of murder in one way or another. It reminds me for some reason of the movie Clue, but in the hands of the master storyteller Agatha Christie there is no comedy, just the claustrophobic fear that comes with ten people one island and one of them a killer. It is in this tale and it's ending that Christie reminds way she was the best in the business.

This book reminded me of the movie "Devil" that came out a few years ago about the group that is stuck in the elevator and start dying one by one. There was no element of possession in this book though. Really good mystery. I couldn't put it down. It creeped me out too and I had trouble going to sleep while I was reading it. Highly recommended

Anyone that enjoys mystery or thrillers "And then there were none", which used to be called "Ten Little Indians" 10 people are summoned to the mysterious Indian Island by U. N. Owen. Then, they are slowly murdered, keeping their deaths in theme with the titular nursery rhyme. The group on the island slowly realizes that one of them is the murderer, and that they must find out who it is before he kills them all. The book has a lot of suspense, and the ending is impossible to predict. A very good, suspenseful murder mystery.

Love this book: the plot, the suspense, the ending were all great. It is almost like a rollercoaster; all the twists and turns on who the murderer is, but in the end it is always someone unexpected.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Like most of Agatha Christie's books the amount of suspense is overwhelming.
