A very intriguing locked-room mistery (only the room in question is an island)
Like all of Christie's writings though, the adaptations imo (of which in ten little indians' case there are a lot - my favourite being the 1945 movie) is always a lot more successful and intriguing than the books which always felt a little flat to me.
One thing I really liked about Christie's writings were the little characterizations that sometimes accompanied the dramatis personae - one in particular: a face like a renaissance poisoner always stuck with me and made me smile.

Loved this book! The narrator did an amazing job and the plot was well written. Highly recommend! ( )

Ten men and women are mysteriously summoned to an island where they are forced to reconcile with their sins—as an unknown killer begins to pick them off one by one.

Utter. Brilliance. This is probably Agatha Christie’s most well-known work, and for good reason. It’s twisty, chilling, and just plain clever. This was also the first Agatha Christie book I ever read. As The Lord of the Rings is a must-read for any fantasy lover, And Then There Were None is required reading for mystery lovers.

Bonus: The 2015 mini-series is incredibly well done. Gave me chills and I even knew what was coming!

It is the most baffling mystery that Agatha Christie has ever written, and if any other writer has ever surpassed it for sheer puzzlement the name escapes our memory. We are referring, of course, to mysteries that have logical explanations, as this one has. It is a tall story, to be sure, but it could have happened.
 
The mystery is foolproof. The solution is fair. It all fits together at the end.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0312330871, Paperback)

Considered the best mystery novel ever written by many readers, And Then There Were None is the story of 10 strangers, each lured to Indian Island by a mysterious host. Once his guests have arrived, the host accuses each person of murder. Unable to leave the island, the guests begin to share their darkest secrets--until they begin to die.
