Murder mystery isn’t really my thing. But here’s what is my thing – reading a fun, light book at the beach. And in that vein, I picked up Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None on the Kindle for my beach trip earlier this summer. Here’s the plot: ten individuals are summoned to a mysterious island by a mysterious host under varying invitations. Each responds to the summons and shows up for a retreat. And one-by-one, the guests begin to turn up dead. With the island void of other people, the guests have only one another to suspect and conspire against.
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie is a classic who-done-it, told by a master mystery writer. There’s a reason she’s a stalwart of the genre. I haven’t changed my mind about being only minimally interested in murder mystery, but And Then There Were None is definitely worth the couple hours it takes to read it, if you’re looking for some light entertainment this summer. You can find Agatha Christie’s book on Amazon in most any format.
