Blurb

When predictions tell Wendell Courtney he’s going to die, he turns to the one man he hopes can help. Jonathan Alvey’s no stranger to the strange. But, unlike the private investigator’s run-of-the-mill zombie cases, he can find no trace of magic around Wendell, and no hint of an adversary. Alvey certainly has magic and wits enough to solve the mystery, but is his offering to the insatiable dragon black sufficient? Or is Wendell truly destined to die?

Review

2

After reading 4:50 from Paddington, I was expecting much more from this one, but unfortunately it’s not as good as other Christie’s books. It was a quick read and I guess that was the only good thing about it. As I’m planning to read all the books in Miss Marple series, I really hope that the rest of the books are better than this one.

Personally I won’t recommend it to anyone. This book is definitely not for me!

Summary

Ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Indian Island by a host who fails to appear but leaves a recording accusing all of undetected murder. Cut off by his orders, one by one each die according to a nursery rhyme Ten Little Indians. A confession in a bottle solves how nobody remains alive. 

Review

4Personally, I loved the book! It was simple and mysterious. Kept me guessing all the time, but somehow if you use your brains in the first few pages you’ll recognise the killer easy enough (I did), but what blows the mind is that, the person you guessed as the killer gets murdered quite soon!

That’s the real catching point for me because in the end its revealed that he was’t dead at that time and was the last one to die.

I liked the fact that Mr. Wargrave’s killing spree was triggered by the fact that there are various situations where the suspect gets away very easily even after being guilty.

I loved it and will suggest it to those who love mysteries and also to those who like short books that can be read in a day or two.
