And Then There Were None is a book that I’ve often heard mentioned, but never taken the time to read. I’ve read several of Christie’s Poirot detective stories, but this is considered to be her “masterpiece”. Aside from being the best-selling mystery novel ever, the book has been adapted for the stage and for film, and has been lauded by critics and the public alike. As a murder mystery, it deals with themes of justice, guilt, and danger. It has universal appeal and has become tradition from which modern writers of all sorts pull upon.
