Agatha Christie, arguably the reigning queen of the confounding mystery, spun one of her best mysteries in her novel And Then There Were None. The scene is Indian Island, and there is a cast of ten characters, all of whom have been summoned to the island under false pretenses. All of the characters are unfamiliar with each other, and upon the close of their first supper, an ominous voice echoes through the air, accusing each guest of committing a previous murder. Rattled, the guests discover they are trapped on the island, with no possible way of communication with the outside world or escape. One by one, each of the guests reaches an untimely death, until there is no doubt that they are being murdered systematically. The remaining guests begin to turn on each other, desperate to discover who among them is a killer intent on bringing them to a deadly justice. And Then There Were None characteristically has a host of intriguing characters, vividly painted by Christie, and the detailed plot twists will keep a reader guessing right up to the final chapter.
