‘And Then

There Were None,' Agatha Christie

WHY IT MATTERS

Christie may be best known for her work on mystery series featuring unforgettable characters such as Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot, but “And Then There Were None,” a stand alone novel, is her most popular book … with good reason. The premise is simple: 10 strangers are invited to a mansion on an otherwise uninhabited island — and then they're killed off one by one. Why are they dying? What secret do they share? And if no one else is on the island, who among them is the murderer? It's a classic whodunit, just as readable today as when it was first published in 1939.

WHAT TO READ NEXT

Any of Christie's other titles, particularly “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd” and “Murder on the Orient Express.”
