Why you should read itThis is Agatha Christie's most popular whodunit, and it's easy to see why. The plot moves along quickly, the author keeps you guessing the whole way through, and the victims keep falling. Christie tightens the suspense, chapter by chapter, before satisfyingly wrapping up the seemingly insoluble mystery. With 100 million copies sold, And Then There Were None is the seventh most successful book of all time.
