"Ten Little Niggers" is another crime story by English writer Dame Agatha Christie, creator of the famous Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple characters.
The plot is different from her other crime books because this one doesn't have any detective. The sleuthing is left to the readers. We become the detective.
The story begins with ten people invited to a holiday on a luxurious but remote island called Nigger Island. They have been invited for different reasons under different guises. Strangely, the hosts did not meet any of the guests upon arrival. Fear seeps in during the first night as an eerie voice out of nowhere accuses all of them of a murder in their pasts.
In a bizarre way, events unfold. One by one, all of the invited guests meet their deaths in unfortunate "accidents" starting from Tony Marsden, who dies after drinking whisky tampered with cyanide. After this first death, the ten porcelain soldiers used as table décor, is reduced to none. More deaths occur the next day, and the invitees fear for the worse knowing they can't escape from that isolated island.
Christie did it again, with her brilliant ending. This story has also been made into a successful film called "And Then There Were None."
