Recommended for: any mystery fan

I'm a big Christie fan but while watching a recent television adaptation of And Then There Were None (hey, it got me to turn on Lifetime), it occurred to me that I'd either not read it fully or possibly at all. A quick look through my bookshelves told me that I didn't have a copy so the latter was more likely. I immediately set to remedying that sad state of affairs. I'm thrilled that I did! Much like The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, we get (at the end, in this case) a first hand recounting of how murder is carried out by the murderer and it's chilling and fantastical. No one seems to do the "locked room" mystery better than Christie and she's definitely taught a simple but important lesson here that goes beyond, Thou shalt not kill"; always and without exception, know your host before you RSVP.
