Ten people find themselves stranded in the lonely house on Indian Island when their supposed hosts send word that they have been detained. A mysterious voice, afterwards discovered to come from a gramophone record, indicts each on of them -- the eight guests and the two servants -- of murder. It transpires that no-one has met their hosts and that they have evidently been decoyed to the island. First one and then another dies; each death according to the rhyme of "Ten little Indians," and with each death one of the little china figurines on the mantelpiece is found broken. The tension grows as they realize that the killer is, in fact, one of themselves. Eventually only two little Indians are left; the real killer appears (his death having been feigned) and the remaining two are able to outwit him--Publisher's description.

Genre: Literary Criticism

The most popular mystery writer of all time concocted a rich recipe of intrigue, character, and setting. All of Agatha Christie’s 66 detective novels are covered here in great detail. Each chapter begins with general comments on a novel’s geographical and historical setting, identifying current events, fashions, fads and popular interests that relate to the story. A concise plot summary and comprehensive character listing follow, and each novel is discussed within Christie’s overall body of work, with an emphasis on the development of themes, narrative technique, and characters over the course of her prolific career. An appendix translates Poirot’s French and defines the British idiomatic words and phrases that give Christie’s novels so much of their flavor.
