This book was written in 1939 by Agatha Christie, one of the best-selling authors. This is a must read book for mystery lovers. It has every element that makes a great thriller. And you won’t be able to spot the killer until you finish the last page; author has done great work in concealing the killer. After reading this book, I can say Christie is the Queen of Mystery. I really enjoyed this book and definitely recommend mystery lovers to read this book ASAP.
The story starts with eight people getting invited to isolated Soldier Island by U.N.Owen for various reasons, while two servants are waiting for the guests to arrive on this island. The real adventure begins when the guests arrive on the island; visitors are surprised to know that none of the hosts who invited them are present on the island. And they are stuck on this island due to storm. Not able to escape, they are presented with a recording in which each character is accused of the crime they have committed in past. As that’s not enough, series of murder starts, until all are dead on the island. And these murders are somehow related to a poem “Ten little soldier” which gives clue how each person on this island will die. So who’s the killer? To find this answer read the book!
If you like mystery genre than this book is must. If you want to skip reading, there’s also a BBC three episode series with the same title.
