Synopsis from Goodreads:
First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion.
Confession: I have wanted to read an Agatha Christie novel for years. I mean, since I was young. She’s considered the queen of crime novels and is (or was) the best-selling novelist in history. Doesn’t that make you want to read at least one of her books? So when I was packing up to head to the beach, I grabbed a paperback copy of And Then There Were None for my beach book. I loved this book. While it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s full of twists and turns. I definitely didn’t figure it out and, of course, loved that about it. The backstories created for each character are all so different and kind of keep you guessing throughout the story. I don’t want get too in depth because I hope that some of you will grab a copy and read this one. If you’re a mystery fan, you’ll definitely enjoy it. I’ve been told that I picked the best Agatha Christie novel to read first, but I’ll still be picking up another one. I gave it four stars on Goodreads.
