“The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.” (New York Times)^“One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.” (Time magazine)^“One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.” (The Observer (UK))^“There is no cheating; the reader is just bamboozled in a straightforward way from first to last….The most colossal achievement of a colossal career. The book must rank with Mrs. Christie’s previous best—on the top notch of detection.” (New Statesman (UK))^“The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.” (Daily Herald (UK))^“What Agatha Christie taught me was all about the delicate placement of the red herring. She was the ultimate genius behind ‘by indirections shall we find directions out.’ ” (Elizabeth George, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Lynley novels)

Christie considered this one of her best mysteries written. Once explained it all makes sense but while it is happening it is so easy to overlook an important point. The gathering of ten unconnected people, whom society has alluded are guilty of a death, on an otherwise deserted island and one of them starts to pull the strings until none are left. Brilliant.
However, the basic setup still holds up and the atmosphere crackles with suspense. I'm delighted to have it on my Kindle!
