Goodreads Summary: One of the most famous and beloved mysteries from The Queen of Suspense—Agatha Christie—now a Lifetime TV movie.

“Ten . . .”
Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious “U. N. Owen.”

“Nine . . .”
At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.

“Eight . . .”
Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . as one by one . . . they begin to die.

“Seven . . .”
Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?

Review: As a fan of mysteries and thrillers growing up, I’m not sure how it’s possible that I had never read a novel from the Queen of Suspense before!  I think this is one of her most famous books so I was really excited to read it.  It kind of reminded me of Clue only better since they are all trapped on an island.  I had a lot of fun, if fun is the right choice of words, reading this book.  When I read it at night, I would definitely get creeped out!  It was really interesting trying to figure out who was committing all of these murders, especially with the storm and lack of access from the mainland.  And the ending!  Whoa!  Totally explosive!  The twist reveal was perfection.  This book is total genius!  I will definitely be adding more Agatha Christie novels to my TBR.

  1. I just started reading Agatha Christie this year too! And then there were none was the first one I picked up too, and I’ve read five more since then. So, far Five Little Pigs has been my favorite. I love Hercule Poirot!

    • I was hoping to pick up some more Agatha Christie at my town’s annual book sale but someone wiped them all out before I could get any. Looks like I’ll be headed to the library to read those!
