Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None

Synopsis:

And Then There Were None is acknowledged to be the world’s best-selling mystery of all time! Originally titled Ten Little Indians—ten people, each with something to hide and something to fear, are invited to a lonely mansion on Soldier Island by a host who, surprisingly, fails to appear. On the island they are cut off from everything but each other and the inescapable shadows of their own past lives. One by one, the guests share the darkest secrets of their wicked pasts. And one by one, they start to die! Deciphering the why and how will keep audiences intrigued until the final reveal.
