Summary from back of book
First, there were ten - a curious assortment of stranger 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.
My Review - 4 Great to the Last Drop
There were many that said I won't be able to solve the crime and they were right, lol, I thought of 3 options and all 3 were wrong, i'm proud to say my 1st thought was the last dead, do I get credit for that, hahahaha.
This was my very first read by Agatha Christie, the book many bloggers have talked about. It was so important I read it I put it for 3 Challenges, I try to read different books for each challenge but felt this would be my major crossover one especially since I have had it over a year.
I liked the idea of the poem Ten Little Indians being used for this mystery and it was on every guests bedroom wall as a remember, talk about in your face, you are going to die, brutal and scary.
The first chapter with the intro of all the characters and getting into the story was one of the best I have ever read, it totally intrigued me and made me want more.
Entertaining is what this was, I thought it was executed amazingly well, great writing craft talent AChristie had. She is known as the Queen of Crime, if your curious I say go for it.
I have this book but wasn't in the mood to read it so I downloaded it on my Kindle :-) I just love my kindle.
