And Then There Were None
Previously strangers to each other, each of them has a shady past involving sudden death. And they find themselves being murdered one by one!Christie tells the story by alternating between the characters, and does so in a totally engaging way. She has the ability to produce a solution that makes you say "Oh, that's not fair!" until you realise that it is indeed very fair, just fiendishly clever.It's easy to see in this book how the work of Christie still informs much of today's writing.
