"Ten . . ."
Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious "U. N. Owen."
"Nine . . ."
At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.
"Eight . . ."
Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . as one by one . . . they begin to die.
"Seven . . ."
Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?

A good book to read, all different mysteries and twists
I like the idea of a murder mystery and trying to solve it and figure it all out, but if we cannot presume that people are dead when the text says they are dead, then we might as well be able to presume that anything is possible, and how am I supposed to have a chance at figuring the mystery out??// I know the doctor was on the actor's side and that makes sense, but the rest of the cast carried the body!!! How could they not tell what a hole in the head looks like, compared to paint on the forehead!!! If that particular scene was written differently: for example the doctor declared him to be dead, and the others did not bother to check the body, but left it, then that could make sense, but as written this is just stupid in my opinion, and not clever writing.
Dieses Buch ist meiner Meinung nach eines der besten Werke von Agatha Christie, aber auch einer der besten Kriminalromane. Mit dieser Klasse ist dieses spannende und packende Buch auch zu einem meiner absoluten Lieblingsbücher geworden. Großartig und eine eindeutige Lese-Empfehlung!
